Biography

In the early 1960s, a bunch of boys from Cambridge began jamming together, and out of those encounters were born the early incarnations of Pink Floyd. More than 40 years and 150 million album sales later, the band headlined the biggest global music event in history – Live 8 – and was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. You could say the Floyd has staying power.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

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

This is one Pink Floyd album most floyd fans should own one time or the other.
Bufford
It's terribly difficult for me to explain. but it is a very good album, don't get me wrong, i would just take most of their other works over it rather easily is all.
"angrythedolphin"
It was a soundtrack for a Barbet Schroeder film, and in its original vinyl configuration, Side Two consisted mostly of forgettable instrumentals.

If I had to pick, I would have to say that this is probably my least favorite Pink Floyd album. It is an incredibly languid (almost stagnant in spots), disjointed, half-hearted effort that never quite takes off. At least that's how I'd remembered it. Yes it had been awhile, but I decided to break out the CD again before writing this review. I must admit, I'm glad I did, because it's better than I'd remembered.

To properly assess this recording, a few things should be considered. First, Pink Floyd was still very much a band in search of its sound. To say that More was "kind of experimental" is like saying Dark Side Of The Moon was "kind of successful". Second, this was the band's first effort at composing a full film score, and by all accounts it wasn't a major picnic. This was due in large part to the supervision of director Barbet Schroeder. Third, the entire record was written and recorded in eight days. Even for an immensely talented band like Pink Floyd, this is hardly an ideal timeframe to create. Finally, unlike soundtracks of today where hits of established pop successes are merely compiled together to generate maximum revenue, the Floyd were composing directly to scenes in the movie (ie; moody sounds and incidental music). The result is that there are as many bizarre fragmented moments as there are actual songs.

Considering all the above, one would likely expect a seriously flawed effort. However, despite all the failings of this record, the band managed to capture several moments of kaleidoscopic beauty. Songs range from the gentle acoustic breeze of Green Is The Color to the pounding rock of The Nile Song (and its evil twin, Ibiza Bar).

Based on what I have read, Pink Floyd did this album because they wanted to start making movie scores. Released in 1969, this soundtrack to the counterculture melodrama More (directed by Barbet Schroeder) really is a very nice listen. From the pastoral serenity of the opening track, through the thunderous Nile Song and Ibiza Bar, and into the spacey and experimental instrumental passages, this is a great album that indicates (somewhat) the direction that Pink Floyd would take as they entered the 1970s. I guess it is worth mentioning that Pink Floyd would take the experimental approach of More to an even greater extent on the follow up Ummagumma (1969).

The instrumental pieces are balanced by the vocal pieces on this, the Floyd's third album, and although some have commented that Dave's vocals sound "feeble" I actually think he sounds great (even on Green is the Colour). Dave's spacey guitar playing is also right on track and he uses a great mix of electric and acoustic textures. With respect to the instrumental tracks there are some pieces that reflect Rick Wright's interest in avant-garde composers (like Stockhausen) especially Up the Khyber, which features a "tribal" drum part by Nick Mason (who co-wrote the piece), some atonal playing on the organ and piano, and electronic effects. Other interesting pieces include the completely "out there" track Quicksilver, which is the most experimental and at 7 minutes the longest track on the whole album, along with the short piece Party Sequence, which features some great percussion parts. At the other end of the spectrum is the softer piece Green is the Colour, which features acoustic guitar, acoustic piano, along with a very soft bass part by Roger and a tiny bit of organ by Rick.

"More" is probably the least-noted studio album in Pink Floyd's history. This is not very surprising; these thirteen tracks were written and recorded for Barbet Schroeder's 1969 hippie-film of the same name, which was about--what else?--a junkie couple addicted to heroin. Why Schroeder appointed Pink Floyd--a band relatively inexperienced in film scoring--to create this soundtrack is questionable, but the result isn't really as bad as it would be with lesser bands.
There are as many fine songs on the "More" soundtrack as there are poor ones. Bassist Roger Waters reveals his blossoming songwriting talent with remarkability. This is exceptional when one looks at the strong hold the bassist would have on the band in the years to come. But there are also some wonderful "group tracks," those written by the entire body of Pink Floyd. Such Waters staples as 'Cirrus Minor,' 'The Nile Song,' (probably the only Floyd heavy metal song) and two cult classics, 'Cymbaline' and 'Green is the Color' are good songs that prove music can be psychedelic without the futile use of drugs. Speaking of which, another thing that makes "More" somewhat of a stepping stone for Pink Floyd is that it was their first work in which they were completely rid of Syd Barrett, their former leader whose damaged mental state as the result of drug use forced him out of the band a year earlier. "More" shows how Pink Floyd had taken the absence of their leader and used it as an oppurtunity to create a whole new set of craftworks in which to vent their talent; group compositions like the raw 'Ibiza Bar,' the groovy 'Main Theme,' and the tiring 'Quicksilver' show their ambitions.
