Pink Floyd's new single disc best of called A Foot In the Door is a great starter into the world of Pink Floyd for those who want to know what the band's music was like and first proper greatest hits album.
When I first got wind of A Foot In the Door I was like do we need another single disc Pink Floyd compilation but got as a gift from a family member as I'm a Pink Floyd collector and I am impressed.
A Foot in the Door, like the now out of print 2001 2-CD Echoes compilation, is not like many best ofs that are out on the market as it is a non-chronological compilation and has songs segueing from one to the next. A Foot In the Door (as its title suggests) is literally geared towards newbies who want to delve into the legacy of Pink Floyd and, unlike 1981's A Collection of Great Dance Songs and 1983's US only Works, is a single disc compilation spanning everything from 1967 to 1994 and coming in at close to 80 minutes.
It's impossible to put a collection of Pink Floyd songs together on one CD that will please everyone. I think the non-chronological placing of these songs adds something new to the mix and the transitions between some of these songs create a mosaic of music just as these songs did on their original albums. Producer James Guthrie was responsible for the segueing and tracklisting with help from the three surviving Pink Floyd members David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Roger Waters.
The band's 1967 Syd Barrett era is represented by the band's first UK Top 10 hit being "See Emily Play".
1973's classic The Dark Side of the Moon is represented by a slightly edited version of "Time", "The Great Gig in the Sky", "Money" (which segues into "Comfortably Numb") and the album's closer "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse".

For a new listener to Pink Floyd.

I am an established Pink Floyd fan, so I don't want to bias this review with the typical, "Pink Floyd is an album band and this compilation doesn't do that justice". It may be true, but I want to write this review for those that are potentially new Pink Floyd fans looking to introduce themselves to this wonderful band.

First off, Pink Floyd weren't a band of hits. One could say that only a handful of songs really fit the description of hits. But, Pink Floyd did have their classic songs, and that is where any Pink Floyd compilation must tread. They had a lot of classic songs, but it is unfortunate that most compilations don't (and probably can't) get them all into a set. A set like this becomes further limited as a one disc set.

To really try and create a Pink Floyd compilation, you really do need to be a multi-disc set. Some of Pink Floyd's best songs are epic, and I feel like this album dismisses some of the epic tracks due to the length requirements.

The song selection here is not horrible, but as others have noted, it neglects a few albums that did have some great Pink Floyd tracks. Specifically, I am talking about Animals, Meddle, and Piper at the Gates of Dawn. It probably wouldn't have been easy to include what could be considered the right songs, but I would argue that songs like Have a Cigar, The Fletcher Memorial Home, and High Hopes could be replaced by songs like One of These Days, Fearless, Sheep, Astronomy Domine, etc. I have nothing against those three songs that are included, but Have a Cigar leaves a listener one track (maybe 1.

Pink Floyd is my all-time favorite rock music. However, the compilation of this CD cuts off intro music and fade outs, cheating the seasoned listener of the full cut.

Anyone who says Pink Floyd is not a band that should have a compilation because most of their music is intended to be heard seamlessly on their original concept album are people with a contradictory logic who completely overlook the extensive singles the band has released over the years. If the band had such a problem with songs being picked off of albums and played separately, they wouldn't have released as many singles as they did. Obviously, the band doesn't have a problem with compilation albums as they gave their input on this and ECHOES: THE BEST OF PINK FLOYD. So the people who think they're above listening to this album, get over yourselves. There. Just thought I'd get that out of the way first because this album is prone to get crappy undeserved criticism such as that.

Anyway, this is pretty much just a condensed version of ECHOES, with the exception of "Brain Damage/Eclipse" and "Have a Cigar" (the former shockingly missing from the 2001 compilation). The selection is pretty decent; "Time", "Money", "Wish You Were Here", "Another Brick in the Wall", "Comfortably Numb" and "Learning to Fly" are usual suspects, and it's nice that "Hey You" and "See Emily Play" is represented though their conclusion isn't surprising. What's really nice about the album is hearing how cleverly the songs segue and transition.

When we hit "Fletcher Memorial Home" is where there are some problems. Really? Is the song really that good? It's obviously just an excuse to represent THE FINAL CUT; its purpose is fine, but the album could be represented better by Waters concert staple "Southampton Dock" or single "Not Now John" or even the underrated closer "Two Suns in the Sunset".

If you insist on getting a compilation, get Echoes
Yes I have Echoes and it is a fine collection. If this set has less songs then why bother unless it is cheap like 9.99 or less and you are new to PF. I agree that when you play PF and you play an album you listen to the entire album in one sitting. Especially Dark Side of the Moon which is one... Read More

Who is this aimed at?
I agree, Animals and other albums (More, Ummagumma, Meddle, Obscured by Clouds) should have been on here. Hell, the cover of this compilation has all of the artwork from the albums that DON'T even appear on it. What's up with that?!

I think the only idea of this newer compilation was to make... Read More
