25 years ago this session brought Youth together with Pink Floyd's muse. This October 2014 the band themselves release The Endless River, an ambient instrumental work produced by Youth. Odd to say that Us 7 Them is ironically the original and best. I guess that imitation is truly the highest form of flattery, even with Pink Floyd imitating their imitators. This Us & Them is therefore and legitimately a pioneer and classic of its type. A must buy for Floydians and beyond.

It is great to listen to music in a classical soothing way but be familiar with it because it is pink Floyd from our generation.

I don't know how many times I have fallen asleep to this. This cd puts puts Enya to shame. Also, being a student, I have found this to be a great study tool.

First of all, professional reviewer Michael Waynick has it completly backwards about the two versions of ''Time''. The first one is excellent once it gets into it, a real toe-tapper, though Waynick is right that the beginning would be better with stronger drums (and stronger keyboard ''dings'' like the original). The second version of ''Time'' is at the end of the album for good reason - because it sucks. The songs are not simply orchestrated versions of the originals. They've taken the great Pink Floyd motifs, toyed with them, and emphasized parts that an orchestra does best. A lot of the results remind of Beetoven-bold and beautiful. Again, these are not straight sing-along versions of the originals. Until this album, I used to skip over ''Nobody's Home'' on The Wall. Actually, it's a beautiful song.

The best way I can describe this album is that these pieces are arranged as if they were orchestral works before they were Pink Floyd songs. Unbelievable in its simplicity and highly recommended for anyone with an open mind.
