3 stars This compilation was an important one during 70's, as there are some of the essential singles from Syd Barrett era here, "Arnold Layne" and "See Emily Play". Nowadays one can surely find these from a legion of different compilations, so this record cannot be claimed to be very essential anymore, but it still gives a nice selection of bands more psych oriented songs, "Interstellar Overdrive", "Julia Dream" and "Careful with That Axe Eugene". You also get the best songs from the "More" soundtrack album here in my opinion; athmospherical "Cirrus Minor" and the aggressive "The Nile Song". The record is also packed up in a fancy sleeve with an imaginative airship, maybe symbolizing the band's guys architect studies being used to build these innovative songs. The songs I mentioned also make a quite depressive bunch of tracks, and this album should work as a good soundtrack for wintertime melancholy.
