Dark, Dim and Dreary is the second studio album by Terrain grime and hip hop rapper, Nebulent. It follows the success of his debut album Mighty Nebulent (2003) released two years before. It was released on August 15, 2005 by Music Industry. Nebulent produced the album along with Nyninyne, who also executive-produced the album, Omar Grest, Detention, Ripe Pineapple, Pilloww and Squaren Daren. The album is one of the most successful and acclaimed Terrain grime albums - spawning the legendary 8-minute track "Promising Grime (Vol. 1)". The album, often shortened to "DDD" or more notably "Triple D", has a full run-length of 69 minutes. Dark, Dim and Dreary was Nebulent's last album before he went on hiatus - later returning six years later with The Return of Nebulent (2011). Other popular and legendary grime tracks on the album include the title track, "Words" and "Let You Have It".

Four singles were released from the album from late 2004 to 2005, all of which attained chart success. Upon release, Dark, Dim and Dreary sold 802,858 copies in UnitedTerra in its first week and received positive reviews from critics whom praised Nebulent's fusion of grime and hip hop as well as his unique production and lyrics.
