Can't understand why "piper" is in 250% more charts than this Lp, which is infinitely better.
It may be criminal, but I like this album a lot more than Piper (as a whole, that is. Interstellar Overdrive is Piper's saving grace). You can hear the beginnings of their transition away from psych rock to progressive rock (even though the psych rock is still felt on this record.) Only real complaints are the kazoo section on "Corporal Clegg" and a few of the noises on the title track.
Favoritas: Let There Be More Light, Jugband Blues, Remember a Day, Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun
Very conflicted as the first half is a more mellow version of what made Piper excellent, and did so to a high degree of excellence. The second half is what most would point to when referencing what inspired Ummagumma's monstrous songs and, even though many love Syd's performances, really don't do it for me. Well, except for Controls. That song is really, really good.
Key Cuts: Remember a Day, Let There Be More Light, Set the Controls For the Heart of the Sun
Is a bit messy and unfocused as others have said.
A good album overall but very uneven. The best tracks IMO are Remember and Set the controls. Also the title track's finale is beautiful.
I think this work starts a wandering musical tour until they found themselves again a couple of years later when the classic Waters-Gilmour era bloom in the 70s.
You just have to be in the mood for this one. Most times I wanna listen to PF I'd honestly pick other albums first.
An album I keep meaning to play a little more often, Jugband Blues has always been one of my favourite Syd tracks and one of my favourites by Pink Floyd overall, Set The Controls is also an impressive pointer to the direction they were heading but the rest have never really made much of an impact to my ears.
The title track is a problem for me as it doesn't say anything, in fact, I don't know of any instrumentals that do. Corporal Clegg and See Saw are both a little lightweight too. I do like Remember A Day, and I think Painbox could've been included, in fact there are a whole host of tracks that could've been included here which would have made a much better album in my opinion - Apples And Oranges, Vegetable Man, Scream Thy Last Scream, etc.
With Syd Barrett better represented, this would be a better album. Maybe it was difficult getting Vegetable Man and Scream Thy Last Scream recorded the way everyone liked but I just feel Syd could have been represented a little more with the tracklisting.
Woow que exploración musical tan genial.
Pink Floyd's second album is disappointing. What didn't help off course is the departure of Syd Barrett, who appears on only three of the seven tracks. With Barrett leaving, that whimsical and childlike aspect of Floyd was gone forever, the band would now sink into a period of uninspired and unfocused music, still, there are a few gems here and there. Best of ASOS tracks are Roger Waters brilliant, set the controls for the heart of the sun, and Rick Wright's, remember a day, is another excellent cut. Elsewhere, it gets a bit messy, see saw, and, corporal Clegg, wouldn't be in anyone's Pink Floyd's desert island discs. Finally, on the last track, is Barrett, with, jugband blues, sounding like he's on the way out in more ways than one. ASOS, is good in places, but it's a very uneven listening experience, it almost sounds like a musical tug of war, Barrett on one end, Gilmour and Waters at the other, and Wright somewhere in the middle. It was no competition.
My favorite Pink Floyd album and the only one that has all five members present. A trippy wonderland of sound and music.
Highlights: Jugband Blues, Let There be More Light and Set the Controls....
With Syd, without Syd...? You can hear the Syd influence but the Floyd to be are beginning to be heard. Bit of a mixed bag, neither one nor the other, but the high points counteract the low (could do with out the first 4 minutes of the title track) but on the whole, I prefer the first album.
