well, some bad reviews here already, i have to say this is great, there is no silly songs as stated, its acid magic mushroom fuelled style from a time that had NOTHING like it, the floyd were different, aiming to be really different, forget dark side.. the seminal blah blah blah.. the first 3 or floyd are the real floyd! and syd's floyd was the originator, before the dark side sell out. this music was then, and still is a new direction in sound, not music... sound! sound with colors.. even when floyd had gilmour and barrett in it, the directions were going wild, what u didnt know they played as a 5-piece?! short but sweet..

experimental music has no highs and lows.. its experimental.. and thats what you get here! if you want to experiment get it, if you want to be safe inside, get dark side and pretend to be experimental.. your parents will like you better with the latter!

very, very highly rated lp, very important lp..!

The old ones are always the best and with this Floyd album you'll not be disappointed. This fantastic piece of work delights with Syd's exquisite lyrics and capture the 60's atmosphere perfectly. A must for any music lovers collection.

The first Pink Floyd album... But then... I don't really see it that way.
Syd Barrett was the main song-writer, as far as I know, for this album (or at the very least the main inspiration) and Syd's style is very much a specific and acquired taste for some.
Syd's songs are chaotic and unpolished. His lyrics are weird and child-like.

To be honest... I can't imagine this incarnation of Floyd would have got very far.
Either Syd had to mature musically (which he never did, on account of becoming mentally ill in an era without anti-psychotic medication)
Or someone else had to take over (which is exactly what DID happen. Roger Waters took the reigns, for the most part and Pink Floyd became what it was to become.)

Inspired by a fine chapter in Graeme Kenneth's Wind in the Willows, Syd Barret produced his finest hour and the Floyd's first album. Although not the best, it almost makes you cry what a great talent in Syd was lost. Even though his music career has not gone astray, who knows what stardom he could have acheived in Pink Floyd. But on the other hand, Syd Barret singing Us and Them on Dark Side? Syd singing Wishing that he was here?
