3 stars A tale of two sides of the story.... or something like that.

A double album with one live and one studio disc. The ball opens with the live album which is very good. Some of their best songs from the Syd Barrett era is here. Astronomy Domine, Careful With That Axe Eugene and Saucerful of Secrets is hard to argue against. I am not that happy about the third live track Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun. But the live part is great.

The studio part is a lot less accessible and the least commercial material Pink Floyd has ever done. A lot of The Beatles can be detected though. But most of this is plonking avant garde which is not even good avant garde music. But I still prefer this stuff to their overly commercial stuff on their two final albums.

This is overall a good album. Nothing more and no less. This is by no means their finest hour though. I leave it like that.

3 stars
