Not entirely sure what to think about this after two listens. Listenable, but too deep for me, I guess.

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.
