3 stars First of all, this album is in my collection since 1997 but I've heard it after the Syd's departure, as was the first time.

Nothing special inside, it look just a commerical operation on Syd fame. But there are some version of previous released song that sounds very different, sometimes worst and sometime with "true" feelings.

There's a lot of bad chords and sometimes Syd was not "tuned" with the voice or has not syncronized with drums or other instruments.

I think that the title track is a fantastic song, it's show how great was (is) the genius of Syd, the others are unreleased tracks (very interesting the instrumental jam).

At the end nothing special but if you wanna hear the solo works of one of the last genius of 20th century you must have this record with the first two albums and (of corse) with the first floyd's releases.

Listen the songs in their deep, and you'll feel more than music.

tucker | 3/5 |
