1 stars Decent compilations deserve 2 stars usually. If the editing, song choice, and CD booklet is good, then a 3 star rating is adequate. The reason most compilations cannot receive better ratings from me is that all albums, whether they are concept albums or not, have a personal atmosphere and feel, and all songs are linked. The exception for this is when the compilation is a collection of never released songs, or singles/demos never released on a studio album, or a collection of live songs (such as Genesis' Archive 67-75). However, this compilation is extremely misleading to a Floyd newbie, because it lacks any real psychedelic music (which makes up the bulk to Floyd's output). This compilation is also boring to a veteran Floydian, because these are there most radio-abused songs. And even though the version of Money here is different, it is much worse. Gilmour decide to re-record the track with himself playing every instrument, and the result is a much simpler and much duller version of a classic. The booklet lacks anything interesting or new, and there is nothing to this compilation which makes it worth buying for anyone.
