4 stars The soundtrack to the film MORE is a strange little album in the discography of PINK FLOYD. After Syd Barrett was asked to leave during the process of recording 'A Saucerful Of Secrets' the band was left in an awkward position of losing one of its key members of their psychedelic phase in the early years. They opted to carry on without him but had a bit of a transitional process along the way before they would get to the new era that blossomed in the 70s. This soundtrack is one of those quirky outings on their way to super-stardom. This album has always been a mystery as to why I like it so much. When you take any single track on here and isolate it the impression is lessened than when the album is played in full. There are plenty of psychedelic references to the previous album's title track, some simple rockers, blues and even a short Spanish guitar piece. For me the magic lies in the flow from one track to another and the mood the whole thing strings together as it progresses.

I have never seen the movie but there are two songs that can be heard in the film that were not included on the album: "Seabirds" and "Hollywood.' For this reason alone I might have to take the plunge and check this flick out no matter how bad it is. I've seen some pretty horrific films in my days and haven't been scarred for life by any (well.... Bride Of Chucky might be the exception). One of the strangest things about this album is that you will hear the FLOYD rock out like they never had and never would again on tracks like 'Nile Song.' Overall I find myself enjoying this every time I drop in and press play. I guess I like the avant feel to the whole thing and the transitional uncertainties that come out in it. However despite liking this album I don't listen to it often. I really should listen to it MORE.
