3 stars Let me start off by saying that I much prefer the Barrett era of Pink Floyd, seeing as how my favorite track is Vegetable Man which was recorded in 1966 and never released! Most of the Floyd fans nowadays would look at me like I'm crazy. Posers.

Now onto music! This really didnt do much for me. I felt that "The Great Gig In The Sky" was the best on the album, as Clare Torry's vocals sound tortured and helpless yet they remain majestic at the same time. "Us And Them" is a good mellow track with nice brass section touches.

Now onto the bad. "Breathe" is twisted and demented and 'Money" is a pointless childrens poem read over rather interesting time structures. I did enjoy "Any Colour You Like", however I wish they had made it a smidgeon longer. Also whether he knew it or not at the time, Storm Thorgensen had created the biggest poser symbol in the history of the planet with this prism design. People that wear Pink Floyd 1973 tour tee-shirts have probably never even heard of Syd Barrett or any Floyd music as a matter of fact.

Yes, Roger Waters used to be the rythm guitarist! Rick Wright used to play chimes! Bob Klose was the lead guitarist! and Chris Dennis was the lead singer! Clive Metcalfe was the bassist! Hahaha take that kids =]
