5 stars A masterpiece of psychedelia, and an indispensable document of the genuis of Syd Barrett, The Piper At the Gates of Dawn is also one of the most original albums of '67, having a very distinct sound, with Nick Mason's tirbally pounding drums, Rick Wright's ominous yet melodic organ, Roger Waters' solid bass work, and Syd Barrett's indescribably exploratory guitar work, set to highly personal and uncommonly deep songs written by Barrett, including psych/space classics like "Astronomy Domine", "Matilda Mother", "Interstellar Overdrive" alongside some very creative whimsical songs like "Flaming", "The Gnome", and "Bike", and Roger Waters first song, "Take Up Thy Stethoscope and Walk", which is actually very original, as well. The production on this great debut is some of the trippiest you'll ever hear.
