This album is a significant part of the Pink Floyd back catalogue. It provided an empathetic accompanyment to the film "More". When experienced on a stand alone basis it remains cogent enough to retain the listener's attention. This is partly because "More" shows how Pink Floyd were progressing as performers and composers. Interestingly all of the most mature pieces were penned by Roger Waters perhaps making an early bid for artistic leadership. The opening track "Cirrus Minor" establishes the album's mood, it has haunting melody tinged with melancholy. "Crying Song" and "Cymbaline" continue to evoke feyness both lyrically and in the music.

The remaining group compositions are of slighter stature in themselves. But they contribute well to the album's atmosphere and feature some attractive and exciting instrumental performances. "Main Theme" is dramatic and memorable and "More Blues" has some very tasty playing by guitarist David Gilmour.

I recommend "More" for the above reasons and also on the simple grounds that it's a nice record. The new remastered release seems to enhance sonic clarity and crispness generally and especially with regard to percussion and bass parts.

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.

This pre-Ummagumma film score was written for Barbet Schroeder's `More', a reportedly unremarkable film set in Ibiza in the heyday of the Hippie era which would most likely be consigned to complete obscurity now were it not for the Pink Floyd soundtrack.

The music is similar in tone to that of the `Saucerful of Secrets' album, in that it showcases the emerging writing talents of immediate post-Barrett Floyd and the way the band was starting to gel as a musical quartet. `Cirrus Minor', `Green is the Colour' and `Cymbaline' are all pleasant and rather languid pieces reminiscent of warm summer days. The two exceptional tracks are `The Nile Song' and `Ibiza Bar' which are loud rock songs at odds with the rest of the album, and maybe the nearest Floyd ever came to recording heavy metal. David Gilmour stars on lead vocals even on tracks written by Roger Waters, and begins to reveal what an outstanding guitarist he was starting to become with an instantly recognisable style.

The 2011 remaster is superb, the best-ever of these rarely-performed pieces with warm sound and all instruments in perfect balance. If you like Floyd's music up to and including `Meddle' and have never heard this, check it out (it's also worth seeking out `Obscured by Clouds' which is even better).

"Music from the film More" (1969) is the third album in the career of the british band Pink Floyd and the first to include compositions by David Gilmour, substitute of Syd Barret. It includes the music composed for the film "More", a hippy story directed by Barbett Schroeder. The music it's not as symphonic and complicated as the one included in "Wish you were here", "Meddle" or "Dark side of the moon", but we have to appreciate the simplicity of the songs. From the opening number, "Cirrus minor", which includes the beautiful vocals of Gilmour and Waters, to the sensual sounds of masterpieces as "Green is the colour" or "Cymbaline", we have a peaceful and very enjoyable album to listen to. But there are two terrible exceptions, the songs "Nile song" and "Ibiza bar". Both are hard, with agressive vocals and agrssive instrumentation. Of course, you can always program your CD player... This beautiful Japanese limited edition comes in a mini carboard sleeve, including all the original artwork by Hipgnosis. The CD is the remastered edition of 1994,and is a picture CD. Also includes a mini biography and the complete lyrics as an exclusive japanese insert. A must have for every Floyd collector and a highly recommended album for those who really enjoy warmful and peaceful music.
