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

English art rockers Pink Floyd's third album Soundtrack From the Film More, was released in July of 1969.
More was the band's second film score. Their first was for a movie called The Committee in 1968, which was not ever released until recently (only on DVD). Then, French film director Barbet Schroder (whom would go on to direct Single White Female, Reversal of Fortune, Barfly and La Vallee (which was another movie Pink Floyd would do the film score for and release as the Obscured by Clouds album (see review approached the band to do the film score for his film More.
More was a story of love and betrayal set on the then hippie island of Ibiza. The band went to Abbey Road Studios and also Pye Studios in London to record the score to the film and emerged with 13 tracks (half with vocals and half instrumental) in just over a week.
Five of the tracks were written by bass player/singer Roger Waters, and are all excellent songs. All of those tracks had guitarist/singer David Gilmour on lead vocals (More was the first full album with Gilmour on all tracks).
The somber but beautiful "Cirrus Minor" opens the album with excellent acoustic work before ending with superb organ work from keyboard player Rick Wright. Next was "The Nile Song", which was the closest that Pink Floyd got to performing heavy metal. The light and somewhat breezy "Crying Song" follows and is good as well. Rick Wright and drummer Nick Mason's aggressive and powerful drums-and-piano workout "Up the Khyber" follows. The next Waters penned track was the superb "Green Is The Colour", which would be in Pink Floyd's set list throughout 1969 and 1970 and is a great song.

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.

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).
