2 stars Personally, I much prefer listning to albums in whole. Especially with a band like Pink Floyd, with songs that fade into one another on the original albums, it's hard to scatter them around two discs while still reliving the greatness they have on the regular album. On 'Dark Side of the Moon', 'Wish You Were Here', and most importantly, 'The Wall' it is important to listen to the tracks together in proper order to get the most out of your listen. Shortened tracks (Echoes down 6 minutes!) aren't too good either. However, this album has positive points. The way the songs are set up is in such a way that they a song from a certain album will fade into one from a differnet album. In this way, this compilation is in its own rite an album of its own (though clearly inferior to the original tracks listings). It is also good in the car when you do not want to be changing albums all the time. And hey, it's Floyd, it's still great music to be enjoyed. So, whether you like this compilation or not really depends on whether your an 'album' person or a 'song' person.
