4 stars First of all I think you have to imagine the sixties and music at that time to fully appreciate what was going on. Its like going to a rollercoaster now a days...its fast, furious and a lot of fun.....thus even better than many years before!! But hey.... guys and gals who were there then, when it all began ( does this sound a bit biased??)you have to realise when we heard Floyd ,there was NOTHING...and i do mean NOTHING that sounded like them!!!Therefore Floyd and indeed this their first album stands as a wonderful example of music...that were not heard before!!! And i do really believe that this Floyd outing are great...both imaginary and compare them with grateful dead might be a slight overdrive (i always thought that The Dead were boring) where as Floyd were thinking..innovating!!! Simple song writing and instrumenting...well that may be.....still rock history and time showed different. Come on now......from typewriter to computer.....everything splendid in its time!! I personally think that this item is a cornerstone in progmusic!!! "Astronomy domine" and "Instellar overdrive" are but a few classic examples from these spacerock/prog godfathers!!! This is the start of prog!!! YOU have to own this GEM !!! Have a nice prog summer !!!
