4 stars This album doesn't differ much from his other solo releases, but I think that the track "Lanky" is worth of mentioning separately. It continues the idea of "Interstellar overdrive" from PINK FLOYD's "Piper at the gates of dawn" album, so it is an instrumental improvisation, and a very good and chaotic one too!

Many of the Syd's songs are rotated over and over in different albums, so unless you are a record collector, consider carefully which one you want to buy out of them. Listening before is a wise precaution.
