Us and Them: Symphonic Pink Floyd  Review

Us and Them: Symphonic Pink Floyd review

Us and Them: Symphonic Pink Floyd is the London Philharmonic Orchestra performing ten Pink Floyd songs from their Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall albums. The performances are instrumental where they sometimes use an assortment of horns and other times string instruments to cover the vocal sections. I do not listen to much classical music, but to my ears this sounds quite good.  All three of the tracks from The Wall work exceptionally well, with "Another Brick in the Wall" led by great string playing.  The overall tone of the listening experience  of Us and Them: Symphonic Pink Floyd is that the performances of the songs have less intensity than they way Pink Floyd performs them, and they have a more relaxing feel. 

This is an excellent classical album of some of Pink Floyd's finest songs.  Barry Small
