"I'm a huge Pink Floyd fan and also a fan of classical music. I was so anxious to see and hear this dvd, but in five minutes I realized I'd been had. First of all it's unauthorized by the band. Secondly, the compositions were so simplified I felt as if I were watching a middle school stringed quartet. Many times they were half way through the song before I recognized what they were playing. A real boring disappointment. Too bad I had to give it an undeserving one star. Don't waste your money or time."

"This video may not be for every Floyd fan, but if you like the music of the Floyd and classical music you'll love this. Very tasteful and imaginative arrangements for string quartet, piano and flute. There are four movements, which include the songs in chronological sequence of the release on the PF albums and representing the four "eras" of the band: With Syd, After Syd,the Waters Period and After Waters. Good idea, because it keeps a coherent musical thread or concept with each movement. The video of the ensemble performance (watching the four lovely ladies sawing on their instruments is a plus) is interspersed with cutaways showing still shots of the band and video and computer generated clips appropriate to the songs."

"For those willing to take the innovativeness of Pink Floyd to the next level, this is for you. In the spirit of Pink Floyd, this is completely different, but so perfect. Even the visuals stay true to what you would expect from the group. I sometimes play it just for background music."
Worth checking out.

"For not only Pink Floyd fans but for music fans this treatment of Floyd is a sweet repast! I thoroughly enjoyed all the pieces,
however I am not really a fan of their work after "The Wall".
It almost seemed Pink Floyd had a lobotomy after Roger Waters left.
And also, whoever the asian woman is in the band, she's hot!"
