3 stars The studio album is almost not worth listening to, apart from a few nice moments mostly in Glimour's projects, and one apiece for Wright and Waters. "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict" is what it sounds like. In general, this album is pretty uninteresting.

1.5 stars

The live album on the other hand is great. 4 stars. The live version of "A Saucerful of Secrets" here far surpasses the studio version on the previous album. Where that one lagged and went nowhere, this one is almost top notch and builds very epically (on par for me with the climax in "Echoes" shortly after the comeback from madness that is the middle of that song. "Careful With that Axe, Eugene" is a generally very good song, featuring waters screaming as the band explodes into sound. I like "Astronomy Domine" here more than on their debut, and while I have never really been much of a fan of "Set the Controls for the heart of the Sun", this version is a bit better I think.

4 stars

total: 2.75 stars
