3 stars I say 3 stars for More. Good, but non-essential.

In fact, the album isn't that progressive. It is in some parts, but it really has a varied sound. It can go from really slow stoner kind've rock, to hard rock, to simple ballads, to funky and experimental instrumentals. It's nowhere near a classic but it does have its moments. Every song is somewhat enjoyable with the exception of Crying song (it's just kinda there, nothing special). Particularly, the best moments on the album are the Percussive tracks Up the Khyber, Party Sequence, and Main Theme, as well as The Nile Song and Ibiza bar, 2 hard rock songs that sound VERY similar to each other, and the most important, Cymbaline. The song has a wonderfully haunting feeling to it. It's lyrics deal with a person caught in a nightmare. Cymbaline was a concert staple for a while, in which they extended it quite a lot, adding more keyboards, a progressive instrumental section, a completely silent pause in which strange sounds like foot steps and doors slamming are played through the speakers, followed by a reprise of the verse. I have several bootleg recordings of this, and they are quite impressive. Green is the Colour is another nice one, and it was played live often, segueing into Careful With That Axe, Eugene. The main and Dramatic themes have a memorable melody, and Quicksilver is an experimental instrumental. More blues is just a bluesy song, and a spanish piece is just a comical filler. There is no real concept behind this album, and each song sounds radically different from the next, so you can never expect anything. Then again, this isn't really an album, it's just a soundtrack to a movie.

I do like this album a lot, but it's not a masterpiece, and it's not that important unless you're a Pink Floyd super OCD completionist like me.
