Pink Floyd
“Commissioned as a soundtrack to the seldom-seen French hippie movie of the same name, More was a Pink Floyd album in its own right, reaching the Top Ten in Britain. The group’s atmospheric music was a natural for movies, but when assembled for record, these pieces were unavoidably a bit patchwork, ranging from folky ballads to fierce electronic instrumentals to incidental mood music. Several of the tracks are pleasantly inconsequential, but this record does include some strong compositions, especially Cymbaline, Green Is the Colour, and The Nile Song. All of these developed into stronger pieces in live performances, and better, high-quality versions are available on numerous bootlegs” (Unterberger).
