3 stars A Pink Floyd collection released for the Christmas season to tide the fans and record company over between The Wall and The Final Cut. All of the songs here are top notch. SOYCD is edited quite a bit and Money has been completely rerecorded by David Gilmour on most of the instruments to get around some licensing issues. While the new version is not better then the original, It is different and I still like to play it.

While most collections are the groups better known tracks and 1 or 2 surprises, I don't really understand the 1 ratings for these songs. In PFs case, the tracks work better within their albums but they still are excellent songs. Kind of like listening to a Floyd special on the radio. For the PF fan who has all of the studio albums, it's not essential unless you really want the new version of Money (I did, and I wasn't disappointed). For a newby, it's a nice overview of some of their popular material.

BTW, the tongue in cheek album title and the brilliant cover are hysterical. As everyone knows, the Floyd's songs are about as far away from dance tracks that you can get. The stiffness of their music is reflected in the ropes around the dancers. To make it more absurd, they are dancing in a field. Well done Storm.

With the way the guild lines are set up, with 2 being for collectors only and many here already having the studio albums, I can see that rating. But these are all excellent tracks from one of the best prog bands on the planet, so I could see a 4 rating. I am going for the middle ground and give it a 3 because it very good but non essential for a PF fan.
