Pink Floyd

Then And Now DVD

Review by Larry Toering

I have to admit that while I'm not the most intense Pink Floyd Fan, watching this two disc set sure can help fill anyone in on what they've been missing. Not only does it cover their career pretty faithfully, it also concentrates on a lot of facts concerning their history that aren't just worth knowing about, but are often just purely entertaining. If you really want to get down to some of that kind of stuff, this comes highly recommended. Still, it might not be the best thing for hardcore fans because they don't need it for reference. However, it sure does deliver for the more casual fan. I enjoyed it. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I dug it back up for review because I'm reviewing another set from them. I thought it might be best to include this, but went back over it to make sure, and managed to find some things out I missed the first time viewing it. That is one great thing about it as well, because it contains enough to actually take more than one viewing. I think that goes a long way for its value, as well. Everything is pretty well covered concerning what prog fans and rock fans in general might find both interesting and informative. And for that too, it is worth taking in several times. From their earliest moments, right on through to their last days together, as well as covering some stuff beyond that, it simply delivers. One thing about this band, they're one of the best for my money in visual factors and production values, so a thing like this has to take care in that department, as well. I think it was done with at least enough integrity to even make major Floyd fans take note of it.
