2 stars "A Collection of Great Dance Songs" is good as an introduction for the uninitiated to FLOYD. But the choice of tracks are not entirely representative of FLOYD's impressive discography. I mean who really needs/wants yet ANOTHER chance to hear 'Money' and 'Another Brick In The Wall'? Just go turn on your local FM Classic Rock station, and I guarantee within a few hours you will hear one of these songs.

Also some of the tracks included on this little compliation are not the 'true' versions of the original songs. 'Another Brick' is the single (edit) version with a slightly different intro. 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' has been completely skewered and compressed into a much shorter 10 minute version. SACRILEGE! 'Money' is totally reworked by Gilmour, and for this reason makes this album a necessary buy for completists only. A great example of Record Companies exploiting fans. "ACOGDS" is not worth acquiring. 2/5 stars
