3 stars A kind of transition album with Syd Barrett leaving and David Gilmour arriving and both present in the content. Even it is remarkable this does not turn ASoS into a spectacular work.

The feeling is that no step forward previous studio album ("The Piper...") was achieved which is clearly represented by a kind of distinctive sound repetition. Best points are the enjoyable opening track 'Let there be light' and the mantra-like psychedelic anthem 'Set the controls to the heart of the sun', recommended for all kinds of trips.

Other songs range from weak to average and are worthy to be heard when one is interested in listening to the album as a whole.

Average, stepping up to a good rating for being historically interesting. Total: 3.

Atkingani | 3/5 |
