Nice review, but the cover promises more than you get !!!

"With so many Pink Floyd reviews on the market it may be difficult to choose. It is a review and does not contain full length songs or interviews. Although promised on the box, the songs mentioned on the back are without exeption, just clips from the songs...
As an audiophile the most anoying lie on the box is the DTS and 5.1 DD logo's, it is just a 2 channel audiotrack which through Dolby Pro Logic II can produce surround sound, but only analogue. Logically, this is not acceptable and an insult to potential buyers.
I haven't read through the whole booklet yet, it is 138 pages of background information, some nice photo's, it seems a rather complete discography. Basically the story told on the discs is the story in the booklet.
The biggest plus is that the whole era of Pink Floyd from start until Live8 is covered. But then again, Pink Floyd is not yet finished, Gilmour and Waters are out on their seperate solotours and today, July 14th, could have been a reunion of the 4 most important Pink Floyd members at the Magny Cours Festival in France where Roger Waters Dark Side of the Moon Solo concert. David Gilmours own solo tour cluttered up the agenda. Possibly some other personal reasons for all 4 members may have had influence as well.
Anyhow, it may mean that a complete review can only be presented if after Syd Barret's passing last friday, july 7th, also David or Roger passes on. Let's hope that doesn't happen anytime soon, but until then Pink Floyd isn't over yet.
My verdict, a rip-off 1 star for soundquality, an ok 3 stars for content and a good 4 stars for the packaging. All together it doesn't add up to more than 3 stars..."

"If you are looking for music,dont bother with this DVD.It is mostly the rantings of some obscure critic with the ocasional floyd member speaking from some BBC radio program or tv show.There is a reason there is no list of tracks on this DVD,there are none! SAVE YOUR MONEY! this will be in the 3.99$ discount pile at your favorite market soon enough!"
In Depth, Excellent Retrospective
ELVIN ORTA RODRIGUEZ | Bayamon, PR USA | 04/17/2006

"This double DVD represents a well-researched, critical retrospective of the music of Pink Floyd. Given the load of material and the band's interesting four decades of history, it is a reasonably complete analysis. Interviews and audio snippets of band members and collaborators are aplenty, but expect bad historical footage, which seems to be intentionally degraded; even fairly recent performances look no better than second-generation VHS copies. The included book is a distinct bonus, with detailed analysis of songs, and enough anecdotes to fill an afternoon reading. Not too many qualms here, considerig the secretiveness of the Floyd's members."
Review of Pink Floyd

"This is a history of Pink Floyd, it is not a concert, although there are pieces of songs in it. There are stuffy British journalists venting their opinions of the group. I felt I paid way too much for way too little Floyd.
I could care less about what some nose in the air journalist thinks, I want to see and hear Pink Floyd when I pay my money!"
