4 stars Did is denfintly something different from the past albums. First is the live album. Very good version of Astronomy Domine, good version of Set The Controls..., and the best official release of Careful With That Axe, Eugene (but, there are better bootleg versions). Then the studio album. Sysyphus is showing great talents of Richard Wright. Maybe the whole song is too long, but it's a good start, with dark psychedelic moments. Granchester Meadows is a beautiful ballad, played and sing by Roger Waters. For this period it will be a live classic. Several Species... is a musical collage, funny but not very interesting. The Narrow way is another fine track. Starts with avery heavy riff, then goes into ballad. The ballad part is a live classic for that time also. And at last we have Nick Mason's The Grand Vizier's Garden Party. Strange track, opens and ends with flute, beside that we have only strange drumming sound. Well, it was something new for 1969. The whole album was something different as well. This is IMO the last true psychedelic Floyd album.
