This review is from: Ummagumma (Audio CD)
Ummagumma is seriously not an easy ride for some, especially the studio disc. For starters, the live disc is pure brilliance, and better than their studio versions, especially A Saucerful of Secrets, beautiful humming in that one. The studio album however, is incredibly brave, yet difficult. Richard Wrights efforst, are quite adequately, listenable, Roger Waters' Grantchester Meadows is rather good, though his next effort is nonsense. But the highlight of the studio album, is good ol' David Gilmour, The Narrow Way. This what promotes this album to a 4 star rating. It keeps making you put the studio album on time and time again. But Nick Masons efforts are just sheer awful, really, it is. But thats the worst it gets, so thank god its the final tracks of the album. The final verdict is that, only for fans I think, not for the average buyer thats for sure.

your analysis is absolutely spot on, thoughI'd say the whole live disc is amongst their 3 or 4 most essential creations.
