4 stars The band hate this album, especially the title suite, which was more thrown together rather than explicitly created as a work of art. But it is a wonderfully atmospheric piece, a psych masterpiece involving choir, orchestra and band in a truly Prog work that stretches across a number of sections that evolve slowly, worming their way into your brain before changing shape. The second side is excellent too: Water's reflective If, Wright's psych Summer 68 with brass band, and Gilmour's bluesy Fat Old Sun. The sound effect laden Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast is bearable only once however. While future glories are still far away, this album's title track is the base point of their progress towards the majestic sound of Dark Side. Highly recommended.
