4 stars First album of my favourite band... Very good album. Syd is not so ill here, and it was good for the music. It's not the Pink Floyd you know today. This lp is psychedelic, strange pop with distorted guitar and strange melodies. Astronomy Domine is in my opinion the first space rock track. Lucifer Sam sounds like a track from a James Bond film:) Matilda Mother is very folk like, Interstelar Overdrive is simply strange and so on, and so on... The only bad track onthis album is Take Up Thy Stetoscope And Walk. That Roger Water's number is not very Floyd like. Funny track really but it dosen't fits in good. The history of the best prog rock band has started...
