"The Piano Tribute to Pink Floyd contains twelve solo piano pieces performed by David Ari Leon. Most songs are simple interpretations that follow the vocal melody without fancy improvisations. The disc has a good selection of Pink Floyd songs despite an original composition added as the final song. Works well as a relaxing background instrumental CD.
Oh by the way, which one's Plink?

"Well, this is pretty bad whether viewed as a novelty, as a tribute, or as something of interest to a Pink Floyd fanatic. The concept of new-wave piano takes on PF sounds like a minor hoot, but these takes are presented without any real imagination, creativity, or flair. Even by the pale standards of solo piano discs, this is bland stuff: in fact it often sounds like MIDI arrangements done from sheet music. You'd THINK a piano version of "Have a Cigar" would at least be interesting, and maybe it is for the first minute or so, but there is nothing here that warrants a second listen.
I suppose if you are really in the market for Muzak-style background music you could do worse, but please, Grandma, DON'T buy this for your Floyd-fan grandson."
Enjoyable, Unusual, and Intriguing

"I enjoy this disc quite a bit. Floyd fans looking for Syd Barrett between the strings might not love it, but tribute albums rarely satisfy the hardest of the hard-core anyway. This doesn't strike me as something intended to be intensely challenging, or as the foundation for wildly improvisational riffs on Floyd classics. Instead, it's a great Sunday-morning background disc, or something to put into the mix that will have your friends stop and say, "what the heck is that?" and then be delighted when they get it. I think it's cool stuff that's well worth a listen."
