4 stars "Far Far Away" opens the adventuress and psychedelically charmed masterpiece from early Barrett influenced FLOYD. "A Saucerful Of Secrets" was I suppose a bit of a transition album bridging Syd's psychedelia influenced music with new member David Gilmour's and his slightly more progressive leanings. I love the early FLOYD psychedelic experience and IMHO "A Saucerful Of Secrets" represents one of the key albums that helped shape both the progressive rock era as well as the generation readiness for the prog explosion. This album also manages to cover a good chunk of ground from the dreamy membrane of Wright's "Remember A Day" to the socially poignant and surface humor of "Corporal Clegg" to the pure progressive magic of "Set The Control For The Heart Of The Sun". The end result is a tremendous little album full of dark and psychedelic influenced exploratory progressive rock.
