3 stars A GREAT Pair!

Honestly there is no need to do a giant review because it supposse that you know the content of this pair very well, i was just reading some Pink Floyd´s reviews, then i found this entry and wanted to share a few words with you.

This compillation was released in 1973 and consist in Pink Floyd´s first 2 studio albums, the albums where Syd Barrett was a member and the loony head of the band, well actually as we know he was a full member only in "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn", when in "A Saucerful of Secrets" he had only a minor participation but it´s clearly noticeable his touch in both albums, you can say that this was the Pink Floyd´s psychedelic era at it´s best, or as some of you may think, just a waste of time and talent making rdicolous noises and senseless songs (i say this because i´ve seen a couple of guys speaking like this).

So actually this is a kind of re-issue, basically this double-album was released just in order to collect their early years in one CD without being a The Best of, or something like that in fact if you want to collect some of the very early years, then just buy "Relics" and listen what Barrett offers to you.

I like very much both albums, personally i prefer A Saucerful than Piper, but both have their great moments, psych/pop/rockish songs which are very well composed and that may blow your mind away. I prefer having both in separate CD´s, as studio albums i mean, but it is nice to have this, i would grade each album with 3.5 and 4 stars , but this time i will grade this nice pair with 3 stars, good but non-essential, i would rather recommend buying each album separately, but if you find this, do not hesitate.
