This sounds so 70's. Those gloomy synths. But great album

WOW! In going through the 70's and 60's I'd never heard of this but it's a diamond in the rough. A little Pink Floyd / King Crimson / Brian Eno / Frank Zappa but really it's unlike anything else around. Certainly a more dispersed sound, that I suppose is prog rock, but it's got a ton of elements of jazz and avant garde as well. There's a warmth throughout that unifies the music. Some of the chord changes and instrumental improvisations are just wild! But never in a disturbing way. Great listen!

Possibly one of the most amazing albums ever recorded, and a psychedelic gem beyond time. Nick Mason's production should have rendered him in demand as a producer for the rest of his life. There is nothing else like Rock Bottom.

One of the best British albums of the seventies. Rock bottom, is a wonderful cycle of superb songs that still sound completely unique today. Sea song, is a beautiful opener and that's just the beginning of a musical journey that winds itself in and out of a range of lovely textures. Oh, and Ivor Cutler's in there too. What more could you want?

My favourite, if such a thing can exist and persist. Honesty, pain, love, emotion, intelligence, mathematics, even humor and also a carefully chosen selection of musicians. A masterpiece and a must for all serious music lovers.
