5 stars I know that all of this is subjective but seeing The Piper at the gates of dawn getting an inferior note than the Dark Side... Don't hit me, I love Dark Side but ...

But on the Piper everything is perfect (again this is only my point of view). I mean, Us and Them isn't the worst horror recorded by the Floyd? A sort of equivalent of Maxwell's Silver Hammer by McCartney on Abbey Road on a disc yet so good! I think the comparison is not so stupid than it seems ...

to return to Piper ..., it is for me indisputable that the Barrett's period is the true FLOYD period, after all he founded the group. While the FLOYD has well done his job later, and even without Syd, regained his own identity, but it was different from the original, and this from Atom Heart Mother / Meddle.

Barrett brings a personal touch that neither Gilmour (with all due respect that I have for him), nor Water (even if I haven't any respect for him), will success to tie it, for me. And yet God knows that I appreciate Wish You weree Here (in fact it should be noted that this album, we all know, is in honour of S (hine on) y (or crazy) d (iamond), really surprising) , or even, Meddle or Animals.

In short, for me this disc deserves 5 stars -> Essential: a masterpiece

Amaury | 5/5 |
