Biography

In the early 1960s, a bunch of boys from Cambridge began jamming together, and out of those encounters were born the early incarnations of Pink Floyd. More than 40 years and 150 million album sales later, the band headlined the biggest global music event in history – Live 8 – and was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. You could say the Floyd has staying power.

With Syd Barrett (Pink Floyd's original frontsman) becoming more and more unstable, Pink Floyd seemed on the verge of collapse. After all, he had penned all their singles and all but one song from their debut album, 'The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn'. So, when he 'left' (read sacked) in April 1968, it wouldn't have been unreasonable to think that they wouldn't last long. How wrong they were.

'A Saucerful Of Secrets' did indeed reveal secrets; Roger Waters and Rick Wright could write songs! And great songs, too. Hypnotic beats and bizarre lyrics showcased in one heck of an album, which does feature one Barrett composition, 'Jugband Blues'. New guitarist David Gilmour doesn't contribute any material here, bar a little on the title-track, so you could argue that this is the most disjointed Pink Floyd album, as Barrett, Waters, Gilmour, Wright and Mason can all be heard; the only Pink Floyd album that can boast that.

Let There Be More Light - space rock riff, weird lyrics, great song

Remember A Day - brilliant. Probably the best song on here

Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun - a mouthful and-a-half! But another great song

Corporal Clegg - Decent song, not bad, not great

A Saucerful Of Secrets - actually, this is the best song on here. Betters 'Interstellar Overdrive' as far as I'm concerned.

See Saw - good song, perhaps best appreciated in a cloud of incense and blue smoke

Jugband Blues - goodbye Syd. Very good song with haunting last line ('And what exactly is a joke?')

Not so much for the casual listener as the Floydian. However, 'A Saucerful Of Secrets' delivers everything its cover promises.

In a way this is Roger Waters et al trying to be syd barrett, "corporal clegg" superficially with its themes of englishness fulfills this role, but bubbling just below the surface is roger waters bile, and "set the controls" sets the template for the meanderings of pink floyd for the rest of the 60's. A cool curio of a album that will appeal to fans of syd as well as fans of the later floyd because this is the album were they began to find their own identity sans syd.

One of my personal favourites, not only of the Floyd canon but in general. I've been looking forward to this edition as the previous 'remaster' was very woolly indeed and I can say it did not disappoint. In fact it's made me love it all over again.
Don't want to go on and on about it as I know other people will be more thorough but felt compelled to add my voice to the throng. I must mention though that the coda in 'Jugband Blues' still brings a wee tear to my eye.

" A saucerful of secrets" is probably the most neglected mainstream album in the floyd canon, It came after syd left the floyd and follows on from their 1967 psychedelic classic "The piper at the gates of dawn". I won`t go into a track by track analysis of the album because it has already been done in other reviews. What i will comment on is the overall sound and feel of the album, which is still psychedelic but also folky and experimental. Rick wright shines brightly here with his innovative use of the farfisa organ and effects to produce swirling techniclour soundscapes that start to define the floyd sound for years to come. The floyd created an album which was very unusual and innovative in 1968 and also hugely influential (future krautrock musicians such as Klaus Schulze, Edgar Froese, manuel gottsching etc. were taking very careful notes.), most of the space rock genre, not to mention experimental ambient can trace their roots to this album. " Saucerful" was so strange and otherwordly the first time i heard it that i did not know what to make of it, but over the years it has become my favourite floyd album. Later floyd albums are great but none are as interesting as "Saucerful". I just keep returning to it again and again.

I must say that, this is one of the best Pink Floyd albums. If you like a little psychedelic touch, this is a " must have"!! I love most of Pink Floyd's work, but there is something special about this album. Maybe it is just the lack of commercial pressure, but there is a sense of peace over the whole creation. Roger Waters`s first song about his spite of the military in "Corporal Clegg" is one of my all time favourite songs performed by Floyd, or anyone else. "Set the controls for the heart of the sun" is a lovely song whit a wonderful melody, and appear both on "Echoes, the best of Pink Floyd" and "In the Flesh" Waters`s last solo album and his world tour. And the opening track "Let there be more light" has a marvellous psychedelic shape witch I love. If you are one of those who just think "Another brick..." is a nice song, and have heard "Whish you were here" in a rap version (crappy, I might add!) you will probably be disappointed, and should by on of the newer Floyd albums first, but for the rest of us this album belongs in the collection.
