2 stars I'm not sure what the reason behind the Works compilation was. Most likely it was another attempt to milk the public for money as this was released a couple months after The Final Cut. However, The Final Cut did not fare as well as The Wall or prior albums, so I guess the results for the sales of Works were not what Capitol Records had imagined. Like their last compilation, A Collection of Great Dance Songs, this is another weird selection of material. The only thing of note for Pink Floyd fans was the track Embryo, which was an outtake from the Ummagumma album. It had only previously appeared on a Harvest Records compilation called "Picnic - A Breath of Fresh Air." Later the song became a concert staple in a much longer extended version. Too bad they didn't put a recording of that on Works instead of the studio version, as it really isn't anything special.

Just a strange compilation created probably for monetary reasons. For collectors only. Two stars.
