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.

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.
In general, I would characterise "More" as a fascinating picture of the band's late 60's style. Although some complain that there are "too many" songs, I don't find that a problem at all, and I definitely recommend completing your collection and picking up More as soon as possible. Although a soundtrack, it stands alone very well, and you will not be disappointed. All in all, I give this album four stars...maybe it isn't one of the Pink Floyd *masterpieces*, but give the underrated More its fair chance--especially those of you who would like a "Rick and Nick" album.
