More (1969) Pink Floyd's third album is also its first without erratic founding member Syd Barrett, and it finds the band leaning heavily on recent addition David Gilmour. The results are wildly uneven, with psych-tinged, pastoral folk ballads pressed up uncomfortably against avant-garde sound experiments. Pink Floyd had already cultivated a high brow reputation for a pop band, so it wasn’t surprising that they started providing the soundtracks for art-house movies. The counter-cultural movie 'More' deals with heroin addiction on Ibiza. More feels like a hybrid between a studio album and a soundtrack – full fledged songs that work outside the movie, sharing space with pieces of incidental soundtrack score. In some ways it’s a good opportunity for the band, still establishing their post-Barrett identity, to try some different things, the record ranges from gentle psychedelia to David Gilmour rockers.
