5 stars The Floyd lunatic gives us this amazing and lonely album, the feeling and the sounds are quite acoustic-psychedelic; the lyrics, the music notices that poor Syd was on the brink of insanity ... Songs like "Love you" stand your party happy and cheerful while "Terrapin" and "No man's land" show the other side of the coin, deep, melancholic, able to float all their frustration, fear , pain and love in a few songs. A stark and disturbing album that offers quality in their performances which today are seldom can hear, with the help of Gilmour, Wyatt and Waters especially, concrete successes songs he wrote during his stay with Floyd. For me an acoustic and minimalist masterpiece.
