5 stars This single is incredible. Then again, it's just a single, so it has little room for fault.

Point me At the Sky is a rare Pink Floyd song, you can hardly find it anywhere. There's an album called the Early Singles with it on there, but it's never been released on any official album. Even though it's a great song! It's not very progressive... the other side is way more progressive. Point me at the sky is more of a psychedelic rock song which talks about flying and fat people.

The song is very memorable, and optimisitic, and any fans of their early psychedelic stuff, like Piper and Saucer would like this song. It has that psychedelic feel, but it's not by Syd Barrett, so it's closer to something like Remember a Day or Paintbox than Piper at the Gates of Dawn.

The other side is an incredible song... 10 times better than the first.

Careful With that Axe Eugene was amazing, I don't even know why it was never released on any album! It's only on the Relics album. It's very underappreciated in my opinion, never released in a studio album, not included on their best of, etc. The song is very progressive, it has a haunting keyboard in it, that is very slow and mellow, but not necessarily comforting. It become a jam of some sort... getting louder and louder until the climax of the song, in which the title is whispered menacingly followed by Roger Waters' signature piercing scream. This song really is amazing, but there are better versions of it out there than the studio versions, like the one from Pompeii, the one from UmmaGumma's live album, and several from rare bootlegs.

5, essential... but then again, there's only 2 songs. No room for faults here. =)
