A Spanish Piece (Remastered)
Label: Pink Floyd Records
Though it's a soundtrack to an obscure hippie flick, More is the beginning of the post-Syd Barrett era for Pink Floyd. As a result, it's the sound of a band exploring different sounds and ideas: Byrds-inspired pastoralism ("Crying Song"), psychedelic heavy metal ("The Nile Song"), progressive electronics ("Main Theme") and even fusion ("Up the Khyber"). The record definitely lacks the thematic unity of later efforts, but just about every track here is awesome. The spacey rocker "Ibiza Bar" just might be pop music's first tune to acknowledge the island's then-underground bohemian enclaves.
