An amazing album with stunning sound
on 2 February 2018
This is a review for the discovery edition cd.
When I was ten my great aunt gave me a load of my cousins old singles. One of them was a very scratched See Emily play. The b side was scarecrow. At that age it made quite an impression. That Xmas I got a nice pair on cassette. Those were the days of small cassette players with a tiny speaker. On boy I'd heard nothing like the music that double album.
Over 40 years later I've now got the beautifully remasters pink Floyd debut. It' still makes an massive impact. The sound quality is simply stunning almost as good as the Beatles remasters. Yes it is that good
The content is outstanding and way ahead of its time. It's way ahead of Sargeant Peppers. Maybe that's an unfair comparison as the Beatles played a different kind of psych.
Piper at the gates of dawn is very radical for the time. It is still radical by today's standards.
Every track is a gem and different in some way.
Pink Floyd were never this experimental again. But they had made their point.
Their live shows at the time were just long sessions of spaced out rock. It's a real pity that there aren't any good recordings fm that those gigs. Those that I've heard are unplayable.
Piper at the gates of dawn is pink Floyd playing safe. Piper at the gates of dawn is one of the most radical albums of all time.
That just shows how far ahead of the field they were.
Avoid this album at your peril
