How to scam the public and rip off the band 101
S. D. Johnson | La Sierra, CA, USA | 02/17/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The only value of this video is as an object lesson in how to legally scam the public into buying crap and how to legally rip off the works done by a band.

The "critics" in this video are a bunch of unknown people who pontificate about this or that. They obviously haven't listened to the music in years as they continually mess up details. For example, one of these idiots talks about how Grantchester Meadows starts with Roger Waters swatting a fly. Obviously, anyone that has listened to the song knows that the fly swatting incident comes at the end of the tune and serves as an ironic counter to the song's crooning for nature to come into the city. Yes, it is a minor detail, but if someone is supposed to be an "expert" they should know the details that a true fan would know.

The rest of the commentary in this set is provided by two members of a Floyd rip-off band called "Forever Autumn" or something like that. The guitar guy shows how ineptly he copies Gilmour's playing and the singer girl is -- well, she's at least pleasant looking.

The commentary is accompanied by video and audio that they obviously obtained for free or for a very low cost. All video clips of the Floyd are overlayed with big lettering indicating that it belongs to this or that promotional video released by Columbia. The music is either short clips of the live versions of some songs or cheap symphonic or bad rock instrumental versions done by unknown bands who should remain unknown.

If the price for this disc were $10 it would be too much to pay for such crap. If it were $5 you'd feel bad about buying it, but would not feel a total sucker. Only if the price were $1 each would the discs be worth it because it is worth $1 to protect your table's fine wood from sweating glasses, bottles or cans.

It would also be useful as a disc to scratch up to test how much damage can be done to a disc before it becomes unreadable. It would also be a good disc to stick in a microwave to see what happens. Other than that, I cannot think of any reason anyone would want to own this trash."

"This plays like an infomercial. The production value is nil. As in the first volume, the interviews are conducted with people nobody's ever heard of (the band "Mostly Autumn" and their producers). Unbelievable that it could even get distributed."
Mostly save your money.

"Even though I received this DVD for free I still consider it too expensive because the people responsible for this "Mostly Autumn" promo (sorry I mean "critical review of Pink Floyd") have stolen 90 minutes of my time that I will never get back. The appalling pub act, Mostly Autumn, are apparently "the new Pink Floyd" but as the longest bit of concert footage is actually of them murdering Comfortably Numb I can only assume this quote was made by a deaf, blind man.

This is an unauthorised, cheaply made, rip off designed to make a quick buck using the name of a great band."
Floyd Fans Avoid

"A bought this awhile ago,read the other reviews for
a description of this rip-off.

Some unknown Aussie producer telling us that Syd Barrett(or more correctly,the first Floyd album)
had very little to offer in terms of production originality
and songwriting compared to later Floyd Stuff.

A promo DVD for Mostly Autumn riding off Floyd.

Steer Clear"
