The Greatest Hits Album Of The Decade!! | Reviewer: Sean Daswani | 7/2/12
I like the compilation album. It makes me feel like I'm in a tour of Pink Floyd in a museum.
This album covers all of their 14 studio albums from "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" their debut album to "The Division Bell" their last album.
All the songs on the compilation album are crossfaded or segued from one song to the next without a pause like on the radio.
We are missing some great songs to complete the compilation album like:
An edited version of the "Atom Heart Mother Suite", "If", "Summer '68", "Fat Old Sun" & "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast" from 1970's "Atom Heart Mother".
"Grandchester Meadows" from 1969's double album "Ummagumma".
"Welcome To The Machine" & "Have A Cigar" from 1975's "Wish You Were Here".
Interstellar Overdrive from 1967's "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn".
"Fearless", "A Pillow Of Winds" & "San Tropez" from 1971's "Meddle".
An edited version of "Dogs", an edited version of "Pigs (3 Different Ones) & an edited version of Parts 1 & 2 of "Pigs On The Wing" from 1977's "Animals".
Disc 1 begins the album or the 1st half of the tour with "Astromony Domine", then we go into the single "See Emily Play". Both songs from 1967.
Next stop, we are headed to "The Happiest Days Of Our Lives" making up the hit single "Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2)" from their 1979 double album, "The Wall".
Then, we go to "Echoes" from their 1971 album "Meddle". It's a edited version that actually cuts from 23 minutes to 16 minutes, that's 7 minutes missing from the album version.
We then go into "Hey You" that opens the 2nd disc of their 1979 double album "The Wall".
Then, we teleported into 1994 with their album "The Division Bell" for an edited version of the instrumental "Marooned" which contains the 1st half of it.
Next, We are going into "The Great Gig In The Sky" from 1973's album "The Dark Side Of The Moon".
Then we go into the Syd Barrett era with the song "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun" from 1968's "A Saucerful Of Secrets".
We headed back to 1973's "The Dark Side Of The Moon" for their song "Money".
Next up, we are going back to 1994 to the song "Keep Talking" from "The Division Bell" album.
Then, we travel back to 1977 with their song "Sheep" on their album "Animals". It appeared on "A Collection Of Great Dance Songs" in 1981. But on this compilation album it has an early fade-out.
Finally, Disc 1 or the 1st half of the tour closes as we end up with the 1987 song "Sorrow" off their album "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason".
Then, we sit down & have a snack during the break. After that, we go back to walking & listening to music.
Disc 2 or the 2nd half of the tour starts off when we travel to 1975 with an edited version of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" on their album "Wish You Were Here". It just has Parts I-VII without Parts VIII & IX.
Next, we are going into "Dark Side" as we hear the ticking & chiming sounds of all the clocks of the song "Time". This song also has the reprise of the song "Breathe (In The Air)".
Then, we are headed into the Roger Waters era with the song "The Fletcher Memorial Home" from 1983's "The Final Cut". It also includes segull sounds at the end.
Next, we return to 1979 with their song "Comfortably Numb" from the 2nd disc of "The Wall". It contains the ending of "Bring The Boys Back Home".
Then, we go into "When The Tigers Broke Free" from the soundtrack to the 1982 film "The Wall". The song made it's appearance on the 2004 re-release of "The Final Cut".
We then go into the next track on the album, the edited version of the song "One Of These Days" from 1971's "Meddle". I also notice the part of song has the Doctor Who riff at the 2 minute mark.
Next stop, we going back into "Dark Side" with the song "Us & Them".
Then, we hear the backwards keyboard note that opens the next song in the collection "Learning To Fly" from 1987's "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason".
We then travel into 1967 with the song "Arnold Layne" from 1971's "Relics".
Then, we come to the next song on the album, "Wish You Were Here" from 1975's "Wish You Were Here". It contains the radio intro at the beginning of the song.
We are going to back to the Syd Barrett era with the last track from "A Saucerful Of Secrets" is "Jugband Blues". It also contains the hidden track at the last 47 seconds.
Then, we go to the last track "High Hopes" which is an edited version of it from 1994's "The Division Bell". It has church bells sound effect at the beginning & the end of the song & it also has the outro slide guitar solo shortened after the words "Forever and ever".
Disc 2 closes the album or finishes the 2nd half of the whole tour of Pink Floyd's carrer with the last track "Bike" from 1967's "Piper". The song also has a bicycle bell sound effect at the beginning of the song.
Finally, we all go home after having so much fun with this compilation album in the museum.
I'm a huge Pink Floyd fan. I love it!!!
