Which one is pink? Take your pick from 30 different tracks. A Fair Forgery of Pink Floyd is more than fair, it is outstanding.

Surely, you will notice some of the names that contributed to this tribute in honor of one the greatest progressive-rock bands ever. Graham Parker makes every effort to impress on "Comfortably Numb." Trust me on this one, you have never heard this song sound like this and only someone like Parsons could pull it off and get away with it. To be perfectly honest, there were only two other names that I recognized, Quetzal ("Mother") and Mike Keneally ("Astronomy Domine"). This is not to say that I did not appreciate all the other artists because I sincerely did. Everyone does a fine job giving his or her own interpretation of the Pink Floyd classics.

Some bands are spot on capturing the PF sound and atmosphere and others were so far off that their interpretation could have ended up on any tribute. Ironically, that is exactly what makes this two-disc set so captivating and different. It is unusual enough to keep your attention focused on each track straight through the two generous discs. I think it would have been extremely boring if every song sounded like a PF copycat. I am most appreciative of each contributing artists' knowledge of the songs they covered. I think the reason every track had its own personality is because each individual artist or band was able to turn themselves inside out and show their true colors and how the inspiration of PF has helped to shape their own music. In the end, that is what a great tribute recording is supposed engender.

If you have often wondered what these songs would sound like using different instruments, voices and genre influences, you are in for a bag of jewels just as the cover indicates. God save Pink Floyd…I mean the king, the ultimate prog-rock stoner band on the face of this great planet. Its funny, I do not need to be high to enjoy this music, never did, I just thought it went together like everyone else did growing up in the ‘70's. Let me put it this way, the first time I heard "Animals" I was not straight. Great music needs nothing else to help it along much less a mind-altering chemical; some people never figure that out. Hell, this is mind-altering music! It is time to take out your "Money" and put it on the table to purchase this fine interpretation of PF music. It Us and Them, join us both now.
