5 stars Unlike anything else really, Piper is arguably the most psychedelic album of the era, Barret's writing is pure acid inspiration, and his guitar playing pretty advanced for '67. The songs seem almost popish in a way, but pop songs administered generous doses os LSD themselves, and gone awry. 'Overdrive' is the most 'Floydian' piece on the album, the only one bearing much of a resemblance to subsequent Pink Floyd. Barret's was a unique genius, or perhaps he just managed to capture the psychedelic experience very well in song, his own subsequent work sounds like, and is, the work of a damaged soul.
