4 stars Bought this back in the early 70's; regarded it as a humorous oddity. Each time I listen to it, though, I get something new out of it. I later bought several of Ron Geesin's solo albums, and found them to be original and fascinating, although uneven. I pulled this CD out the other day, and enjoyed it more than ever. It doesn't sound much like Pink Floyd, because most of the tracks were written by Geesin (who was a "fifth member" on "Atom Heart Mother"). Geesin plays many different instruments, and there are a number of sound effects as well. Waters contributes a few short songs (the vibe is a bit like "Grandchester Meadows"), and the last song features all four members of Pink Floyd. Unfortunately, that's the worst track on the album, with a simple and repetitious chorus sung by female backup singers. Keep in mind that this is a soundtrack album to a movie about the workings of the human body. Most people would say that this music sounds best when one is under the influence of mind-altering substances, so look for it if you think the adjective "weird" is a good thing...
