4 stars The first and only album to fully feature Syd Barret shows Pink Floyd at its most drugged and psychedelic. It was 1967 and after the innovate and ground breaking Sgt. Pepper this feels somewhat close to it after all they were both recorded in the same studio at almost the same time. Granted this one isn't as amazing as Sgt. Pepper but does hold up in its own right with classic songs like Astronomy Domine, Interstellar Overdrive and Bike. Overall, this is a great album but not the best Floyd album. If your into some trippy music this is for you but other than that listen with care. 4 stars. Highlights: Astronomy Domine, Pow R. Toc H., Take Up Thy Stethoscope And Walk, Interstellar Overdrive, and Bike.
