  • The Dark Side of the Muzak

    Conceptually, one would think that symphonic Floyd would work, yet fails to deliver as the recording overall comes off as a sterile, non-emotive rendition of Pink Floyd. There are a few bright moments, but listening to this more than once becomes drudgery. Simply put, this is the Muzak version of Pink Floyd.
  • excellent!

    I love Pink Floyd, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra does an excellent rendition. If you're a Pink Floyd music fan, you should own this.

    I bought this album more out of curiosity than anything else. I found it fascinating that a musical institution as prestigious as the London Symphony Orchestra would take on a work of art that is light years away from its normal stock & trade. All I can say is that they did a phenomenal job. For me, there are hints of Mahler in places, crescendos reminiscent of "The Pines of Rome," and of course it is deftly peppered with the ominous leitmotivs of the original works of Pink Floyd. Overall, quite a masterful, well-done, and enthralling work.
  • Symphonically Impressive!!

    When piecing together a tribute to a band so well-versed and widely known, the idea and personification of their masterpieces have to co-exist in the same like-mind. Honestly, taking away the voice and adding the melodic undertones and resounding meaning through strings and brass was a perfect interpetation of Pink Floyd's work. This has to be one of the most chilling creations of his ideals. Beautiful!
  • This is the best

    This cd is real good. I love Pink Floyd all the way. I could hear this all day. They did a good job there is lot of bands that try but they pulled it off.
  • Amazing stuff!

    I 100% love Pink Floyd (my favorite band), and I certainly listen to my fair share of classical music. Imagine my surprise when I find out they've put the two together. Their most iconic songs, remastered! It's just a masterpiece! Even if you don't particularly like classical, or you're not a huge Pink Floyd fan, the amazing composing (and song writing ;) ) are undeniable! Absolute must have for Pink Floyd fans!

    To be honest I think this is absolutely gorgeous. I've always loved Pink Floyd for their musical genius. This album really brings out some of the beauty of Pink Floyd's music. However, if you don't like orchestrated music then you might not enjoy it. However, if you do I think you will love it.
  • This is good stuff

    Hey this music is not bad at all, even though it only slightly resembles Pink Floyd, to be able to make this kind of sound quality with out technological help is a large feat.
  • wow

    I think that most people who, like myself, love Pink Floyd's music and what Roger Waters conveys in his writing are too unwilling and closed-minded when listening to this album. I think it is an incredible thing when one great music mind's music is taken and transformed into something so different (but in this case so similar). While it is a classical interpretation of the music, when listening, I feel like Pete Scholes did a mind-blowing job conveying the feelings/meanings of all these Pink Floyd songs. The use of dynamics is what stands out to me the most. When listening, pay attention to the extreme dynamics used and how they transfer all of the "Pink Floyd-ness" that one would expect and hope for. I loved it.... those with open minds will love it too.
