5 stars the debut album of the most famous prog rock band in the whole world (the most famous never is the best). of course i'm not saying that PINK FLOYD is bad, i had to say that i'm a Floydian like a houndred of millions in the world. Pink floyd ocasionally had open the shows of Jimi Hendrix. "The piper at the gates of down" was the starting of the history of this wonderful band. Syd Barrett was the genious became this masterpiece. eleven songs, nine with letters (all of Barrett except "Pow r toc h" by Roger Waters) and two creations of the whole band. the opening is "Astronomy domine" here we have (i think) the first song of Space rock in the history!. "Interstellar Overdrive" is a very groovy piece too an almost 10 minutes instrumental song composed by the four genious. the lyrics of Syd Barrett, are (i think) too much great of the lyrics of Waters, Gilmour or Wright. 1967 was the year, Waters, Wright, Mason and Barrett was the genious making the opus, and the opus was of course the piper. i think this album is completely a masterpiece, in the story of prog rock, classic rock, space rock, and generally the music of the 20th century. one of the best debut albums and maybe i could keep saying more and more atributes that this album clearly diserves.
