Nick has been fantastically involved throughout the production of this download, so that it has become something far more than simply an author reading his work. For once, we can genuinely say this audiobook comes complete with bells and whistles, not to mention some Arctic winds, Venetian canals, telephones, aeroplanes, and a squealing pig or two!

Strangely Fascinating

As a somewhat Pink Floyd fan, I've always found the story behind the band to be strangely fascinating, and Nick's account goes right from the early days of the band finding it's feet, and finding it's sound, right up to the most recent events. While much of this material has already been documented previously, it's great to have the stories personally recounted from the inside as it were, with some quite honest and humble moments.

The downside - well, it's abridged of course, but it's been done well and doesn't feel like anything important to the overall story was left out. Recommended.

Another Brick in the Wall

Nick Mason does a fine job as reader and gives a good general overview of the band's history from the early Syd days up to the Live 8 reunion.

However, there's little new insight into the band members, their relationships, and, particularly, how the music was written and recorded.

In fairness, the book is abridged and maybe that's why it seems a bit unrevealing. Plus Mason is a drummer and had less to do with song construction than the other three.

I don't see the logic is abridging a book like this. The only buyers are going to be Pink Floyd fans. And fans like this are going to want as much material as possible. With digital downloads, there's no logic in abridging a book like this; not like five years ago when it would have been sold on cassette.

Worth a listen if you're a Floyd fan. Though I would look forward to the day when/if Roger Waters wrote a comprehensive autobiography.
