5 stars I have to tell you one thing: I do not fall asleep without a book about Syd Barret under the pillow.

Yes, I'm one of those Syd fangirls who love almost everything about him. It's strange to talk about it here, I know. But he had a magnetism and he was an interesting kind of person. Was he a beautiful mind or a normal junkie? I believe in the first one. I love him-with my brain, not with heart. He helped me many times...What an inspirative lunatic!

Back to the review, The Piper seems to be a playful, happy and carefree album, but by this time Syd was already decaying and without the patience of another Floyds there would be no Piper. But it's not possible to feel it from the songs, fortunately. Every song means something special to me

1. Astronomy Domine - really cosmic song, the first from Syd era I've heard. 2. Lucifer Sam - Jennifer Gentle, you're a witch. Witches' song. 3. Matilda Mother (3:08) - sounds like a drama 4. Flaming (2:46) - one of these songs that make The Piper callek like fairy tale album. 5. Pow R. Toc H. (4:26) ... 6. Take Up Thy Stethoscope And Walk (3:05) ... 7. Interstellar Overdrive (9:41) ...this must sound good when you're stoned.But when you're not, then as well. 8. The Gnome (2:13) look at 4. 9. Chapter 24 (3:42) look at 8. 10. Scarecrow (2:11) look at 9. It's a green sunny song. Maybe because of the video. 11. Bike (3:21) look at 10.

I'm sure this album was be accepted better in its time- I mean in the time of godforsaken clubs, trippy dancing and revolutions.

Anyway the book, from which comes the name of this album, is very very beautiful, mainly the chapter called The Piper at the gates of dawn.

5/5
