Pink Floyd has produced some of the most celebrated rock music of all time: The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, and, recently, The Division Bell. Pink Floyd through the Eyes of . . . collects the best writing from critics and connoisseurs like David Fricke, Reober Christgau, Nick Kent, Tom Hibbert, John Peel, Charles Shaar Murray, and Julie Burchill, as well as from Pink Floyd itself. With sources ranging from underground fanzines to Rolling Stone, a track-by-track guide to the entire Floydian repertoire (including rare quotes from the band members for many of the songs), and photos new to this first U.S. edition, this collection is the quintessential guide to Pink Floyd.
