Good debut. I'll admit I'm not the biggest Pink Floyd fan, but this was a good album.

Grande debut psicodélico de uma então diferente banda. Brilhante, criativa e colossal.

Even as a big Floyd fan, I feel the best that can be said about this album is that it piques the curiosity of what's to come. Apart from the standouts Bike and Astronomy Domine the album is too incoherent to be considered brilliant. I can appreciate that the psychedelic nature of it would have been amazing live; I'm sure many people's memories of the music is coloured by this (apologies if this sounds patronizing - it's not meant to be). For me, though, by the time I reached Pow R. Toc H. I was ready for something a bit different. This is provided to some extent, so the album is, overall, a good one, but I'm left wanting more. Thankfully, with what followed, that was delivered amply. I guess I'm just more of a fan of post-Syd Barrett Floyd.

Very interesting album. I'm a huge Floyd fan but this album doesn't grab me the same way that a lot of their work post-Syd does. Nevertheless, there are some great songs on here and it's an essential for any Floyd fan.

A bizarre, interesting, and often frightening album. It's crazy to think this was the first Pink Floyd album, as they were already doing things no other band at the time was doing. Personally, this album isn't as enjoyable for me as some of their later work but it's hard to deny that this is one of the most influential psychedelic album out there.

A psychedelic masterpiece. One could only wonder what was going on in Syd Barrett's mind, particularly when you listen to some of the lyrics- 'Lying on an eiderdown, yippee, you can't see me but I can you'!

Drug fuelled psychedelic masterpiece during which Syd ponders on weighty topics including childhood innocence, the solar system... and why he called his pet mouse Gerald.

The most pshychedelic album of the year, Pink Floyd's debut is often overlooked because of them later records, and I can understand it. The Piper at The Gates of Down sounds like a completely diferent band, It sounds like Syd Barrett, and It is a madcap record.
