About Face
Review by Larry Toering
About Face is not your average run of the mill piece of work from David Gilmour, but that was the intended purpose, as he said when he released it.

David Gilmour - In Concert DVD
Review by Greg Olma

This is an odd release from David Gilmour as it showcases mainly a show from 2001 and then adds in some additional pieces from a 2002 concert.

While everyone else in town was busy standing in line to see David Gilmour at the Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal CityWalk in North Hollywood, CA, a few lucky people scored passes to the Jay Leno, Tonight Show in Burbank, Thursday, April 20, to watch Gilmour in a private mini concert up close and personal.

Once upon a time Pink Floyd was more psychedelic than progressive rock.

Alan Parsons - A Valid Path
Review by Gary Hill
For those who have followed the career of Alan Parsons this disc may seem rather strange at first. Parsons here embraces electronic music, with that sound driving the album. It even wanders into techno at times.

Pink Floyd - Animals
Review by Gary Hill
I know a lot of people really focus on Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, and possibly Wish You Were Here as the highpoints of Pink Floyd's career. Personally, I will take Animals over any of those discs, although I appreciate all of those, as well.

Pink Floyd - Atom Heart Mother
Review by Gary Hill

The various members of Pink Floyd all basically said that they regretted this album. I can sort of see why. It has a real wandering kind of feel to it.

Unicorn - Blue Pine Trees
Review by Gary Hill
Much like the other Unicorn reissue reviewed this time around, I nearly put this one in the “non-prog” category.

Supertramp - Brother Where you Bound
Review by Gary Hill

This album divided Supertramp fans. Roger Hodgson was out of the group. That means many Supertramp fanatics disregarded this set out of hand. The truth is, though, those who gave it a chance found an album that was very strong. Let me say that I am a fan of Hodgson solo and I appreciate the contribution he made to the magic of Supertramp. However, in my opinion, this is the most blatantly progressive rock oriented offering from the band, and it’s finest. A good way to sum up the disc in a simple phrase would be that it combines the sounds of Supertramp with Pink Floyd. The presence of David Gilmour on the epic of the album adds to that effect. Whether you are a Hodgson fanatic or not, give this disc a real chance. It is well worth the effort.

Best of compilations are always a mixed bag. Certainly what one person considers the best, someone else might think of as “eh.”

Pink Floyd - Meddle
Review by Steve Alspach
This album shows how well Pink Floyd was able to make the transition from experimental band to a song-based unit without losing any sense of musical adventure.

Pink Floyd - Pulse DVD
Review by Greg Olma

I can’t believe it has been 25 years since Pink Floyd last toured.  The album they were promoting at the time was The Division Bell but they were also, in a way, promoting The Dark Side of the Moon by playing that record in its entirety.

Review by G. W. Hill
This book is something very special. A good tag-line for this would be "come for the pictures, stay for the stories."

Pink Floyd - The Division Bell
Review by Gary Hill
Many Roger Waters fans slagged A Momentary Lapse of Reason saying it wasn’t a “real Pink Floyd” album. Well, I just don’t understand the criticism of that disc as it really is one of the most consistent discs the band ever produced.

Pink Floyd - The Story of Wish You Were Here BluRay
Review by G. W. Hill

I’ve always sort of gone against the grain and considered several Pink Floyd albums to be better than both Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall.

Pink Floyd - The Wall
Review by Gary Hill

I know for many people this is the end-all-be-all of Pink Floyd. I have to say for me it’s over – that’s over-rated and over-played.

Pink Floyd - Then And Now DVD
Review by Larry Toering

Unicorn - Too Many Crooks
Review by Gary Hill
I started off with this set to go in the non-prog category. Sure, it was produced by Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour. He does play on one track.

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Review by Josh Turner
In the commercial world, two albums from Pink Floyd were hugely successful. Unless you've been a castaway on a remote island for the past couple of decades, you'd know I was talking about Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall.
