3 stars Well... It may seem quite strange, but this double CD containing the best of 27 years of Pink Floyd has been my first encounter with progressive music, exactly 4 years ago. Now I have almost all of their discography, and I became aware that some songs have been edited, but imagine a 14-years-old-boy who comes across with echoey, spacy, lengthy, atmospheric compositions like these... It has been a shock at first, I have never heard something like that in all my life, but it opened me the door to another world, which I still frequently visit. I think that it is a good start for prog newbies, the songs are remastered very well (expecially the two Saucerful numbers), the booklet is very nice, with beautiful images, but a greatest hits remains a gretaest hits... so 3 stars.
