Trippy and the lyrics while not making sense paints very illustrative images. My only criticism is that some of the songs don't go anywhere, but I guess that is a required feature with this genre.
This is also a very weird experience transitioning from Dark Side of The Moon to The Wall era of Pink Floyd to their début with Syd Barrett and to place yourself in that sound is somewhat of a jarring choice. It's still a great album all together.
A brilliant album, but I feel like it goes over my head a lot of the time.
Trippy and the sum-up of the Syd era.
I think psychedelia walks a fine line. It very often crosses over into the pompous. Fortunately over a decade later Waters made one of the most pompous records of all time. Even if this were pompous (it isn't) no one would notice thanks to The Wall.
Great Psychedelic album nice fashion embrace this
I would agree this is a much more psychedelic album than that of more popular albums. The Zombies kinda reminds me of this album... I however just am not a fan of ultra psychedelic stuff. I find it annoying actually, instead of artful. 75/100
It's a pretty good psychedelic album. At least it's truly psychedelic.
Serpico nailed it.
This album provides a sensual experience. As mentioned by serpico "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn successfully captures both sides of psychedelic experimentation -- the pleasures of expanding one's mind and perception, and an underlying threat of mental disorder and even lunacy"
This album and to a greater extent Pink Floyd somehow manages to take advantage of subconscious feelings of the listener stemming from childhood, prominently used in The Wall and in a softer way on tracks such as The Gnome, Scarecrow and Bike.
In the end this album produces what I shall call the "Down the Rabbit Hole" effect, turning some simple yet hard hitting nursery rhymes, into a moody atmospheric PschyScape.
This is one of those albums whose nuances and subtleties are enhanced by repeated listens. Piper is arguably the most innovative, creative and influential of all the psychedelic albums of the period. This is a work that's bursting with ideas and sounds as fresh and vital now as it did on its release. Many of the neo-psychedelic revivalist groups of the 1980s and 1990s (for instance, Spiritualized and Mercury Rev) will cite this album as a major influence.
