4 stars Pink Floyd's debut is arguably one of the best psychedelic records emerged during the Summer of Love. From the menacing Astronomy Domine to the childish Bike, the Piper is full of surrealist imagery courtesy of the genius of Syd Barrett. The album begins with the classic Astronomy Domine, a sci-fi song full of organs and haunting lyrics. Lucifer Sam is a catchy tune while Matilda Mother is more relaxed. Flaming is great track with atmospheric keyboards, effects and folky melody. Bike is still one of my favorites, a perfect example of Barrett's attitude at the time. The experimental side of Floyd is represented by the weird Pow R Toc H and Water's Take Thy Stethoscope and Walk. Interstellar Overdrive is the centerpiece with its guitar riffs and hypnotic rhythmic section. This is a classic album and the better statement of Barrett's creativity.
