Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Nile Song is a single release by UK progressive/ psychadelic rock act Pink Floyd. The B-side of the single contains the song Ibiza Bar. Both songs are featured on the Pink Floyd soundtrack album More (1969).

Both songs are hard rock songs and stand out on the More album as very different from the pre-dominantly mellow folky and experimental psychadelic tunes that generally populate that album. Nile Song is actually one of the very few Pink Floyd songs not to feature keyboards by Richard Wright. Ibiza Bar is very similar to the Nile Song in sound but its not as memorable and most fans will probably mention the Nile Song as a classic while Ibiza Bar is more of a B-side track. Im not sure I find the idea to put two very similar sounding songs on one single very good but as the Nile Song is such a great track Ill rate this single with 3 stars.

2 stars 'The Nile Song' - Pink Floyd (Single)

Taken from the 'More' album, Pink Floyd's 'The Nile Song' is the single to that somewhat lukewarm album. One of the more harder edged Floyd tracks out there, I first heard it covered by the thrash metal band Voivod. Hearing the original finally, it is clear that the heaviness was instilled in the track; it is certainly a far cry from the psych pop cheer the dominated the Floyd's sound even a couple of years before. Alas, the songwriting here is not nearly as poignant as I am used to hearing from Pink Floyd, and along with a b-side that sounds virtually like a weak replica of the single, it's difficult to consider 'The Nile Song' a successful single from the band.

The song doesn't really have a memorable quality about it to my ears, standing out from other Floyd songs only because the band cranks up their guitars and gets a bit more aggressive than usual with the sound. The melodies have a couple of flourishes that are nice, but even after a couple of listens, most of the ideas don't seem to stick. This is the same to a much greater degree with the b-side 'Ibiza Bar', which is not so much an unpleasant track to hear as much as it is a completely unnecessary one, sounding virtually identical to 'The Nile Song'; the melodies, hard rock riffs, and song structure even.

Certainly a weaker single from Pink Floyd.
