Publisher's Summary

Nick has been fantastically involved throughout the production of this download, so that it has become something far more than simply an author reading his work. For once, we can genuinely say this audiobook comes complete with bells and whistles, not to mention some Arctic winds, Venetian canals, telephones, aeroplanes, and a squealing pig or two!

Another Brick in the Wall

Nick Mason does a fine job as reader and gives a good general overview of the band's history from the early Syd days up to the Live 8 reunion.

However, there's little new insight into the band members, their relationships, and, particularly, how the music was written and recorded.

In fairness, the book is abridged and maybe that's why it seems a bit unrevealing. Plus Mason is a drummer and had less to do with song construction than the other three.

I don't see the logic is abridging a book like this. The only buyers are going to be Pink Floyd fans. And fans like this are going to want as much material as possible. With digital downloads, there's no logic in abridging a book like this; not like five years ago when it would have been sold on cassette.

Worth a listen if you're a Floyd fan. Though I would look forward to the day when/if Roger Waters wrote a comprehensive autobiography.

Not to buy

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This version does not correspond to the book version, very disappointing.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Inside Out?

The making of the dark side.

Would you be willing to try another one of Nick Mason’s performances?

Yes

Strangely Fascinating

As a somewhat Pink Floyd fan, I've always found the story behind the band to be strangely fascinating, and Nick's account goes right from the early days of the band finding it's feet, and finding it's sound, right up to the most recent events. While much of this material has already been documented previously, it's great to have the stories personally recounted from the inside as it were, with some quite honest and humble moments.

The downside - well, it's abridged of course, but it's been done well and doesn't feel like anything important to the overall story was left out. Recommended.

Wish they were here

An interesting perspective from someone who seemingly remained friends with all band members through the years. A bit rushed through the 1980-90’s. Sad in some places. A good historic read.

Enjoyable but lightweight

A good story and some nice flourishes but felt like a very superficial telling of the story. Was hoping for more.

Amazingly Dull

I am a big Floyd fan, in fact they are one of my favourite bands. So with their well documented history I was looking forward to some gritty "Inside" details - Ha! talk about sanitised, if you're going to bother writing a book AND recording it you may as well make it interesting -OK OK, for a big Floysd fan it was partly interesting to learn of how albums were put together etc, but there was soooo little info on people and what makes them tick. As for Nick's delivery, sorry but it just compliments the story - dull
