Prog Reviewer
2 stars This is a record entirely made to a movie soundtrack so don't expect great originality from Pink Floyd's third album. The characteristic psychedelic sound have had almost vanished in prior of calm instrumental ambiences and calm melodies (what to expect from a soundtrack anyway?) that fit very well on the film. In fact, Pink Floyd's soundtrack is the best the movie has to offer.

We can listen some of their previous records clichés. The title track from "A Saucerful Of Secrets" appears in the sad church organ in Cirrus Minor but also in the crescendo drumming overture and subsequent psycho sounding of Up The Khyber. The album also offers the hard rocking tracks The Nile Song and Ibiza Bar; the country Green Is The Colour; and some spacey passages in Main Theme and specially QuickSilver (more again sounding like a track taken from the previous record).

The story of the film (and album) I transcribed it from IMDB: "The making of a heroin addict. Stefan, fresh from college, hitches from Germany to Paris, where he does a little breaking and entering to get some money and soon meets Estelle, a young American. Even through a friend warns him off Estelle, Stefan falls for her (she's quixotic). Although he's quickly petulant and possessive, she invites him to follow her to Ibiza for romance in the sun and sand. There Stefan meets another German, Wolf, whose connection with Estelle Stefan can't fathom. He also meets Kathy, whose relationship with Estelle is also unclear at first. What explains her disappearances and furtive behavior? And once Stefan understands, what will he do about it?"

Not an essential album of progressive rock, the more progressive sounding derivates from their previous releases. Nevertheless, it shows the idea of globalization of the psychedelic movement. Basically, for Pink Floyd's fans or great collectors.

My rate: 6/10
