A Great Intro
Although Pink Floyd should eventually be heard in the context of their original albums, this collection is a great intro to the band in their classic period. You may want to find ECHOES if you want to get deeper in, but for a "one-disc" collection, you can't go wrong with this. (PLEASE NOTE: The recording of Money in this collection was a re-recording from 1981 done primarily by David Gilmour, and sounds a bit different than the one on DARK SIDE OF THE MOON. Still a great rendition, though.)
Despite already having most of these tunes in my Classic Rock collection, ten bucks for the best rock intro ever created ( eight minutes plus into "Shine On You Crazy Diamond") plus another song I didn't yet own, was well worth it! Floyd will always undeniably be among the best for total aural ecstasy.
The title is a joke
Pink Floyd doesn't make dance music. Get it
As a compilation, it is okay, considering that it came out in the LP era and that Floyd's extended compositions don't easily lend themselves to a single-disc greatest hits. If you really want the songs you know, get the two-disc "Echoes" compilation which has all that and more.
Or, you could just get Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall, and be done.
