The ULTIMATE Collection!
am 15. April 2003
At long last there is a complete compilation of Pink Floyd's music that does the group justice. Mind you, it is not perfect, but what can you expect from over thirty years of groundbreaking music placed onto two CD's?
Running from the early days of "See Emily Play" to older material like, "High Hopes", the absolute best is here with few exceptions. Half of "Dark Side Of The Moon" and "Wish You Were Here" are represented here as well. Pink Floyd has always been noted for being an 'album' recording group with very few singles until the later years. Also well known for thier concerts, the double CD, "Pulse" sold millions.
This set does not track from inception to end like most collections, but rather mixes the songs up non-chronologically making for a more appreciative listen. The only gripe this author has is the quick cut at the ends of songs instead of a slow 'fade-out'. It can be jarring. However, it is not so bad that some of the originally longer songs have been shortened. Only hard-core fans will notice the edits (i.e. "Echoes").
The liner notes are fairly all-inclusive with some fun information and album shots. It's a great collector box for those who don't wish to buy all the Pink Floyd recordings - but that wouldn't hurt.
