Biography

In the early 1960s, a bunch of boys from Cambridge began jamming together, and out of those encounters were born the early incarnations of Pink Floyd. More than 40 years and 150 million album sales later, the band headlined the biggest global music event in history – Live 8 – and was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. You could say the Floyd has staying power.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pink folk and other styles 13 Nov 2005
By AGC2070
Format:Audio CD
If you asked Pink Floyd to come up with an album comprising mostly of 3-4 minute songs and covering all the musical styles of the era, this is what you would get. Consequently, it has a genuine 60s feel to it.

Richard Wright's organ work is hypnotic on Cirrus Minor and Cymbaline, and Pink Floyd rock out as never before (or since) on The Nile Song. This is much heavier than anything Led Zeppelin have done; Nick Mason bashes his drum-skins for all he's worth and Dave Gilmour all but lascerates his throat. Ibiza Bar sounds like The Nile Song Part II and consequently loses some of its impact.

There are three very etheral tracks, of which the 7 minute Quicksilver is the most demanding. Main Theme begins very similarly (crashing cymbals and swirling organ) but a quirky melody seems to rise out of this.

Then there's More Blues which has a peculiar stop/start drum pattern, and A Spanish Piece which provides a rare example of Pink Floyd messing about - the years of angst-ridden lyrics were still a little way off. There is even a hint of world music about Party Sequence and a jazzy feel to Up the Khyber. The surprise though, is the use of folk music styles on Crying Song, Green is the Colour and Cymbaline.

This is Pink Floyd at their most eclectic, and it's only the fact that it sounds a little tentative compared to the truly bizarre Ummagumma that I hold back from giving it five stars. The album's high point is the transition from the birdsong and general relaxed feel of Cirrus Minor into the crashing intro of The Nile Song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Low budget surprise 29 Sep 2005
By D. J. H. Thorn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Until "Meddle", the Floyd didn't really have an identifiable sound and this deceptively cheap-sounding release is proof of that. Sparse acoustic songs mixed with basic hard rock and the usual experiments add up to a distinct and unpredictable soundtrack. "The Crying Song" is a personal favourite and shows that the band could do the simple stuff beautifully. The two loud rock numbers are based on the same music and performed with cheerful abandon. It's as if they're saying, "We can do metal, but we're not really interested."
"Cirrus Minor" is more like the Floyd you'd expect from this period. At first, I found the stately organ drone a shade dull, but the more I listen to it the more I seem to hear within it. Meanwhile, "More Blues" and "Quicksilver" sound as if they belong to the experimentation of "Ummagumma". In short, there's a lot packed into this album and it's one of the band's more interesting yet obscure releases. If you're interested in early post-Barrett Floyd, this is essential.

I've always been slightly wary about the lesser known albums in Pink Floyd's portfolio but after recently buying - and liking - ummagumma and atom heart mother I bought More. I really like David Gilmour's voice on this album and the songs seem more confident than those on Saucerful of Secrets. To me it connects the earlier albums to Meddle, Obscured by Clouds and Dark Side of the Moon - it feels like a process is occuring rather than an event. It's a good, mellow album which deserves a chance by other wary Pink Floyd fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars More - Pink Floyd 9 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
I used to hitch hike to see Pink Floyd if they were appearing near me in 69/70. I saw them at Luton Polytechnic and in Birmingham and also London. They changed such a lot after Syd Barrett left. I feel sure I saw this film but loved the music so much more - I used to have the LP. I adore The Nile Song and Up the Khyber. When they changed musically it felt like someone had died. Cirrus Minor is astounding poetically. I do love this album - the singing of Roger Waters is haunting. Marlene

4.0 out of 5 stars Full of Wright's Turkish Delight! 18 Dec 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album is a collection of great chill out tracks and then some.
Recorded after Saucerful of Secrets but before Ummagumma it heralds the likes of Cirrus Minor and The Nile Song (both also on "Relics") but also some rather quaint yet beautiful numbers: Cymbaline, Crying Song, Green is the Colour. The best tracks are those that make use of the classic early floyd sound - Rick Wright's Turkish Delight keyboards. Check this out for the haunting "Main Theme" and Gilmour's strange comedy number "A Spanish Piece". I personally think Ibiza Bar (also on this album) is far more interesting that "The Nile Song" as it uses better effects on the guitar and seems to be better produced.
A classic.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Please! 1 Jan 2008
By Mr. M. A. Reed TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
1969's "More" (the soundtrack accompanying the film of the same name), meanwhile offers the heaviest Pink Floyd recordings ever : near to hard rock-metal than anything else they ever did : in addition this album offers re-recordings of the original soundtrack rearranged for record release - as the versions heard in the film are often substantially different and the film itself features two songs not released anywhere else. It's an odd ride, of many different styles and lacking a singular voice, but worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diamond in the (relative) Rough 13 Nov 2003
By olip74
Format:Audio CD
As another reviewer, who obviously shares my thoughts, points out this album and Meddle are often missed by Floyd fanatics but they represent my favourite Floyd albums.
More contains simply structured, elegantly played, beautiful compositions. Unpretentious with none of the 'theme' album aspect about them they were apparently recorded in three days for a Barbet Schroeder film (of the same name?), weird when you consider how relaxed some of the songs sound!
Cymabline, Green is the Colour, Cirrus Minor and Main Theme are the ones that do it for me, psychedelic and spacey like the best of the live stuff on Umma Gumma but grounded in more conventional song structures. Good playing by Wright and Gilmour throughout, this album has withstood the test of time more than the likes of the Wall or the Final Cut.
