More is the first soundtrack album and third studio album by English rock band Pink Floyd. It was the band's first album without former leader Syd Barrett. The album was a top ten hit in the The Nile Song - The Pink Floyd* - Soundtrack From The Film More (8-Track Cartridge, but received mixed reviews.
Several songs became live favourites over the following years. Like other Pink Floyd albums, it has been reissued on CD with additional material and outtakes. Pink Floyd had already recorded several pieces of film music before this album.
In Decemberthey had featured in the BBC show Tomorrow's Worldplaying along to a light show, and had recorded some instrumental music for the film The Committee.
The film More featured a young hitchhiker in Ibiza who had succumbed to heroin abuse, with party scenes and drug taking. Director Barbet Schroeder was a fan of the group, and brought a rough cut of the film to London for them to work with. The group also speculated they could branch out into a career as film composers if their recording and touring career did not work out. Pink Floyd worked out most of the music in two weeks, with material put together quickly and semi-improvised. Schroeder was impressed by how quickly the group created and recorded the material.
More features a mixture of styles. Songs such as "Green is the Colour" were acoustic folk ballads, a genre not often explored by the group. It was a regular feature in the set for two years afterwards. Two songs can be heard in the film which were not included on the album: and "Hollywood" and "Seabirds". The album cover was, like A Saucerful of Secretsdesigned by Hipgnosis. It uses a shot from the film of two characters playing around a windmill in Ibiza, processed in a dark room to make it look like a psychedelic trip.
More reached number 9 in the UK Volare (Italy) - 101 Strings - Music Of The World  and, upon re-release innumber in the US. A US reissue was released on Harvest Records. More received mixed reviews from critics.
