1 stars This album is so much of its time that it is almost unbelievable. This music is pure psychadelia with some very experimental moments. It has not aged well at all in my opinion and it sounds horribly dated today. But it really captures the essence (and the excesses) of British Psych music of the late 60's. As such it has nothing to do with the progressive rock of the 70's.

This second Pink Floyd album is not as groundbreaking as the debut album, and the songs are generally much weaker than on the debut. It would take Pink Floyd several more years before they found their direction.

The very experimental title track is basically just atonal noise for over 10 minutes with no structure at all. In describing the quality of this song I am tempted to use words I'm not supposed to use on Prog Archives, so I'll just leave it at that! I pose a question instead: Is this supposed to be adventurous and interesting music?

This is one of the worst albums I ever heard by a well respected band!
