4 stars This is another excellent early record by The Floyd, slightly different to their debut, as it shows the beginning in places of the lengthier pieces they were to develop later on. 'Set The Controls' is the sort of thing that was to be reinvented by bands such as 'The Orb' many years later. Repetitive and hypnotic, it is particularly effective through the headphones. The opener, 'Let There Be More Light' is another fine piece, with superbly contrasting vocals in places. My personal favourite though, has to be the romantic 'See- Saw' with simple but evocative piano from Richard Wright. The whole album is suffused with atmosphere, and sounds quite modern considering its age. Both Barrett and Gilmour are influencial here, and it was a fascinating period, with, for a brief time, a five piece line- up. For me, they weren't to do an album anywhere near as good again until the classic 'Meddle', three years later. Superb cover too.
