2 stars another PF compilation I'm glad I didn't buy, and is actually worse than "Dance Songs". At least the aforementioned album centered on the high point of thier career (Meddle - The Wall), "Works" comes from and goes nowhere.

Hearing the Beatles-esque "Arnold Layne" plastered between the amazing "One of these Days" and the catchy "Fearless" is downright wierd (almost as bad as the transition from Hige Hopes to Bike on "Echoes")

also, the reappernce of "Arnold Layne" and "See Emily Play" that wierd featured on "Relics" is redundant. "Brain Damage/Eclipse" is a good choice, but fits much better as an album closing song.

Then there's "Set the Controls", defintly one of the best early songs form PF, but totally out of place. "Sveral Speices" is a tottally random selction, if you want something from Ummagumma, "Grantchester Meadows" or "Narrow Way pt 3" would have been a far better choice

"Free Four" definitly deserves a spot in a compilation record (Why was it not on Echoes?), but it too is sadly out of place.

The only high point is the previouisly unrealsed "Embryo", a good song that was a live concert staple in the early 70's

don't buy, unless you are a completionist or manage to pick it up for a few bucks at a garage sale
