Very Weird,Complex Original and Very good- A true Concept Album,
This review is from: Voyage 34: The Complete Trip (Audio CD)
I bought this after hearing Phase 1 live.
This is what progressive rock and music is all about doing something totally different with utter conviction and just going for it.
This album is a musical journey about an LSD trip with the initial ingestion, journey into euphoria,the fear as the drug bites into the victim and the chaos that follows then ebbing out out into an almost trance like state of repitition and confusion and then the end.The music is first class and extremely powerful and the narration of some American expert throughout gives the sense of this is being watched by us looking in on someones private world.Sampled and repeated outtakes from stoned people interwoven with the music is also very effective in that there perspectives and their frazzeled mind are so out of touch .
A great concept album and years infront of it's time (recorded in 1992).
A great album for the car as you need to hear it all the way through for full effect.
The album does have Floyds (A brick in the wall pt2 to the guitar riff - admitted) but this a first class progressive rock album - very dark, poweful and the moods flow effortlessly from one stage to the next.
This to me shows just how good PT are and as others have said this is the best pink floyd album that floyd never made.
Just buy it - Enjoy

Actually Gilmore took the riff from an album called something like Experiments for Electric Guitar, or some such thing. Being a Floyd fan, Wilson had that ablum too.
