3 stars The inside series of DVDs are a compelling snapshot of prog history for the progressive rock fan. It is worth noting that there are a series of "Inside" DVDs available, including Van der Graaf Generator, Yes, Supertramp, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Genesis and of course "Inside Pink Floyd". Each DVD is in Dolby digital 5.1 and DTS so the sound is incomparable.

The Inside series is an independent critical review featuring rare archive footage much of which has been previously unavailable on DVD. Pink Floyd clips from the Barret era are here focussing on Piper at the Gates of Dawn for much of the program. It is a rare treat to see Waters and Gilmour together In the Dark Side of The Moon era too. We hear from band members about the recording process and I was surprised to see performances from More and Obscured by Clouds that are rare indeed.

Musicologists of varying backgrounds critically assess the music to discover the essence of the band. It is a very brief look at the band as are all of these DVDs of the "Inside" series, clocking just over one hour in length. Therefore it is more of a taster for those new to Pink Floyd or for those who just want to look back at the golden years of this quintessential prog rock band.
