5 stars An extremely experimental album made by Pink Floyd in the year of 1967. I think that year were a revlutionary year in therms of music: We have Beatles "Sgt. Peppers", Zappas "Freak Out!", Beefhearts "safe as Milk", Mody Blues "Days of Future Passed" and, of course, Floyds debut!

With a lot of short songs and just one long song - "Interstaller Overdrive", the first ten-minutes pyschdelic and experimental rock song! - This album is space-rocks spreader and its space climate begins at its first song, "Astronomy Domine".

The instrumental work is great: Is the best era of Waters bass line, Wright plays some jazzy ans melodic themes, Mason is playing well and Barret mades incredible riffs on guitar!

But the highlight is the concept work: Funny stories, poetry, space themes and much psychdelia. All this elements together with Barrets ideas made an incredible almost-concept album (a space-fairy tales book of songs)!

"The Piper at the Gates of Down" is experimental rocks pinnacle, a must, a masterpiece!
