3 stars Really good album in the early psychedelics, but far not the best! And not progressive in any ways.

The greatest is the first song, Astronomy Domine which has surprising moments and sounds almost symphonic. Pow R is a bit experimental with some mouth drumming and animal sounds, like Ummagumma. Take thy stetoschope shows that Waters was already good at painful lyrics.(see: Jesus bled, Pain is red...) Interstellar is interesting but sometimes directionless and too long. The rest are pop songs, I like to mention Scarecrow, a very folkish tune.

A good start, but not excellennt.
