Pink Floyd's fifth album appeared a full year after the poor studio half of Ummagumma. The most "progressive" the band would attempt, the subdued album offered its title track over the first side. Originally titled "The Amazing Pudding", it was originally an amalgam of work the Floyd had kicking around at the time. Of course, 1970 turned out to be the year for adding orchestras to rock music, something even the Floyd would succumb to. Composer Ron Geesin and Waters had first collaborated for the soundtrack The Body almost two years prior (though the album would see release in November). Evidently, Geesin was called in to orchestrate the already recorded piece. For the most part, however, the effort fails, the concept perhaps more interesting than the reality. Geesin’s orchestration was integrated, but what that chorus was doing is anyone’s guess. The track finally broke down into a rather uninspired blues jam, ending in a symphonic crescendo that reprises the major theme. A variety of songs from the band members covered the second side. "If" proved to be a Waters archetype, while Wright’s "Summer ‘68" would remain one of his finest compositions. The group composition "Alan’s Psychedelic Breakfast" though, was genuine languor; it barely managed to raise its head for the closing section, "Morning Glory". The cover offered no name or title; only the picture of the magnificent Lullubelle III. Despite the lack of critical zeal to the record, it turned out to Pink Floyd's first No. 1 in the UK. Although EMI would release an essential compilation of singles, Relics, little would be heard from the Floyd over the next year.
