Top 10 albums from ex-Mansun frontman Paul Draper – Number 6 – The Dark Side of the Moon (Pink Floyd)

Draper - The Dark Side of the Moon

I like a bit of prog rock every now and again! We had our prog rock moment with “Six”, the Britpop “Dark Side of the Moon” – so yeah, I love that album. I remember it floating around the house when I was a kid but I got into it on CD later on. Again, it’s beautifully recorded. There are moments – melodic moments – that are incredible and it was really innovative. The whole Pink Floyd thing was very different and obviously became absolutely huge. There are very few things that are truly original like that and that can actually be huge.
