Product Description


Concocted for director Barbet Schroeder's dystopian hippie road flick, this album marks Floyd's first venture into film "scoring," a task they undertake with a verve that overshadows their lack of formal training in the field. With just a handful of cuts echoing the trippy, atmospheric space-rock that was so much a part of their early career, there's a surprisingly familiar dedication to songcraft evident here, especially for a soundtrack. Roger Waters's acoustic ballads ("Cirrus Minor," "Crying Song," "Green is the Color"), dark and dirge-like, are familiar predecessors to music that would highlight Wish You Were Here and The Wall, while Dave Gilmour's slashing riffs on "The Nile Song" also foreshadow greatness to come. Moody and surprisingly eclectic, More has rightly earned its place as a Floyd cult fave. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Please don't forget me...I deserve MORE May 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is packed with diversity!!! As if the haunting church organs of Cirrus minor, proto-metal/ punk of Nile Song and in the second side Ibiza Bar, the best acoustic ballad Green is the colour and the gorgeous Cymbaline (the da da doo doo hum would make you hit the road for the countryside) and the mood builder Crying song in the middle weren't enough, the second side offers sonic bliss in the form of Quicksilver.
Floyd never get credit for their importance. More's ample proof they still have the playful nature in the post-Barrett era. Ibiza bar has to be one of Roger's finest lyrics.
PS: See the movie too

After the departure of Syd Barrett, but before the ascendency of lyrical giant Roger Waters and guitar giant David Gilmour, More shows the true talents of Pink Floyd's most underrated musicians: Rick Wright and Nick Mason (keyboards and drums respectively). In my opinion, it was these two who helped to maintain the continuity of the Pink Floyd style during this transitional period, and it's a real shame they were overshadowed later on in the band's career. The chaotic, jazzlike piece "Up the Khyber" says it all...although there is a little bass in it as well, both Mr. Wright and Mr. Mason truly shine.
Rick Wright fans will appreciate the prominence of his Farfisa organ in songs such as "Cirrus Minor", "Main Theme", and "Quicksilver"; this will also give you somewhat of an idea what he was like in concert during this time period.
Nick Mason fans should enjoy the more elaborate, improvisational, sometimes Eastern drumming style he shows in songs like "Party Sequence" (foreshadowing of the intro of "Time", perhaps?), "Main Theme", and "Up the Khyber", very much in contrast to his more laid-back style in later albums.
Another interesting feature of this album is the strangely "hard" songs for Pink Floyd, "The Nile Song" and "Ibiza Bar". Although completely different from anything else in the Pink Floyd catalogue (except maybe a vocal resemblance to Momentary Lapse's "Dogs of War"), they are very enjoyable. Another style you rarely hear, but is important to the Pink Floyd sound, is the blues: "More Blues" is an interesting piece, although I wish the drums wouldn't start and stop the way they do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pink Floyd's first released film score is superb June 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
English art rockers Pink Floyd's third album Soundtrack From the Film More, was released in July of 1969. More was Floyd's second film score. Their first was for a movie called The Committee in 1968, which was not ever released. Then, French film director Barbet Schroder(whom would go on to direct Single White Female, Reversal of Fortune, Barfly and La Vallee, which was another movie Pink Floyd would do the film score for and release as the Obscured by Clouds album(see review)) approached the band to do the film score for his film More. More was a story of love and betrayal set on the then hippie island of Ibiza. The band went to Pye Studios in London to record the score to the film and emerged with 13 tracks(half with vocals and half instrumental) in a week. Five of the tracks were written by bass player/vocalist Roger Waters, and are all excellent songs. All of those tracks had guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour on lead vocals. The somber but beautiful Cirrus Minor opens the album. Next was The Nile Song, which was the closest that Pink Floyd got to performing heavy metal. The light and somewhat breezy Crying Song follows and is good as well. Drummer Nick Mason and keyboardist Rick Wright's aggressive and powerful drums-and-piano workout Up the Khyber follows. The next Waters penned track was the superb Green Is The Colour, which would be in Pink Floyd's set list throughout 1969 and 1970. The exquisite Cymbaline follows and is one of my all-time favorite Floyd songs, that song was also a staple of their live shows during their 1969, 1970, and 1971 tours. The brief but superb percussion piece Party Sequence ends the first half. Most of the second half is instrumentals. It starts with the trippy space-rock of Main Theme, which musically predates the sounds on Shine on You Crazy Diamond by six years. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT SOUNDTRACK June 15 2004

By Michael
Format:Audio CD
For the collector, this is a must have. One of the heaviest and roughest Floyd tracks recorded is on this album called The Nile Song, but the overall quality of the music is quite mellow; a forshadowing of Floyd to come.
This is a rare occurance where the soundtrack vastly overshadows the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars more spice than the best sweet potato pie! June 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
this was the 2nd floyd album I got right after "the wall",and it is one of the best.I now own all the floyd cds and this one is probably my third favorite behind "piper @ the gate of dawn",and"meddle" because it's got a great flow,and is great for listening to in any circumstances.there are no radio hits on "more"(although there are 4 tunes that could've been so much more popular than anything off the"big albums") so trendies and pop zombies alike must be cautious of what they're getting themselves into here.the first 6 songs will show you that you got your moneys worth,and the rest are awesome and make for a nice winding-down effect.get this disc for the tracks"crying song","green is the colour"and the first which I've forgotten the name to.(not many cds this great are still $13!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Another underrated Pink Floyd album!
This and Obscured by Clouds gets my vote for Most Underrated Pink FLoyd Albums. Unfortantly, those who grew up on the sellout period of 73-79 will not like this. Read more

I cannot stress enough how great of a song Cymbaline is. Production-wise, lyrics, compostion, melody - this song is perfect. It is one of the 4 or 5 greatest Floyd songs ever. Read more
