3 stars The best of Pink Floyd has been done before with the excellent "Echoes" compilation and so I am not sure who this album is aimed for. Certainly there are perhaps a few people who would be newcomers to Floyd but surely they could go back to the other plethora of backlog compilations rather than grab this expensive album. The packaging is admittedly high quality, with booklet and illustrations that are exclusive to this set. The songs are all brilliant naturally being the best of Pink Floyd.

This compilation is of course a tie in with the recent remastered Pink Floyd Immersion sets and Discovery Box Set. There is nothing new on this album though it is a different track listing than previous compilations.

I can rate this 3 stars at least due to the packaging and simply because Pink Floyd deserve to be heard and perhaps this album may draw newcomers into the brilliant Pink Floyd universe. Maybe after hearing this album listeners may be interested in grabbing the true masterpieces that have made this band one of the most successful and well known bands on the planet.

2 stars Just another compilation.

When you love are a die-hard fan of a band you have the will of collecting as much stuff of theirs as you can, even some things that are not necessary or even useless, and though I am not the biggest collector, I can say I have a nice amount of Pink Floyd related items, including this "Best of Pink Floyd" album. And this is not the first nor second nor third best of album of theirs, there are several of these kind previously released (Echoes, maybe the better known) so I honestly cannot find a true value of these kind of actions.

Anyway, I found it cheap and wanted to increase my CD collection, so I bought it. I like the package and even the title "A Foot in the Door", but the compilation is just ok. I assume this is more aimed for newbies or people who only know their most famous tunes, so if you are one of them, this CD might be a nice introduction for you. In the other hand, if you already know their catalogue and like their music, then you will feel this is just a waste of time and money, because honestly there is no sense in releasing one more hits CD when the band is already popular and better known for their albums as a whole.

Well, here you will find 16 songs taken from all the Floyd eras, I mean, you will find the Barrett one with "See Emily Play", the classic one with tracks such as "Time"; "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" or "Hey You", and the Gilmour one with "Learning to Fly" or "High Hopes", so if you want a mixture of hits, this could be for you. Of course I love almost all the songs here, but I find it useless to create this compilation album, that is why my final grade will be two stars.

Enjoy it!

3 stars A great collection of many of the classic cuts from Pink Floyd. Why is this release needed after the Echoes set? No idea, but a friend had this and I looked it over and gave it a listen. No new tracks or hidden gems here. Just the usual "hits" of Floyd from their long career. Everything from See ... (read more)
