Review by Conor Fynes
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars 'It Would Be So Nice' - Pink Floyd (Single)

'It Would Be So Nice' is a single that was essentially disowned by almost all members of Pink Floyd. Described by Nick Mason as 'f*cking awful', the single was not very successful, and especially with the problems facing the frontman Syd Barrett, things were fairly dark for PInk Floyd at this time. However, despite the band hating this track, this is quite a pleasant track, paired with a decent b-side. Penned by keyboardist Richard Wright, 'It Would Be So Nice' feels closer to being a Beatles track rather than Floyd, featuring some vaudevillian pianos and nice vocal harmonies. Moreover, the lyrics are close to the sort of whimsical approach the Beatles had at this time; making the mundane seem magical. With lyrics even just about things like reading the newspaper, it is a surprisingly charming song, sounding almost as if Syd Barrett wrote it rather than Wright. That being said, the vocal harmonies and arrangement can get a little too overwhelming and make the sound fuzzy.

The other track here 'Julia Dream' is a rather melancholic and sad-sounding tune, taking a much more sombre approach than most other material heard on the early Floyd singles. Relying mostly on some soft vocals with keyboard and acoustics, it is fairly simple and much less complex than the single here. As well, it is not nearly as memorable, generally taking one approach and sticking with it throughout the song. The b-side here is nothing special, but 'It Would Be So Nice' is a very nice track from the Pink Floyd, even if they may tend to disagree.

3 stars Another Richard Wright penned track that gets beat on by the rest of the group. I truly believe if PF supported this guy and gave him more credits instead of knocking him, they would have been an even greater band. Most of "It Would Be So Nice" is very good. If the rest of the guys did not ... (read more)
