2 stars Well, a soundtrack is a soundtrack, and a masterpiece this isn't. Floyd probably got well payed for this, and got their name further known around certain areas, but this is not the Floyd we know and love. Ok, it does sound like them, as they have a distinctive sound, but none of the tunes on here are impressive. Most of them sound half finished, which is a curse of soundtracks, but at least none of them have the unmusical ramblings of Ummagumma or Atom Heart. Nevertheless, the music here is even less melodic. This album isn't patchy, it is consistently poor. This was the first one I bought by Floyd, and I was so disappointed with it. One to avoid unless you are a big fan. Floyd haters will use this as ammunition against them. No better, no worse than their earlier soundtrack, 'More'. Collectors only.
