Not as strong as some other Pink Floyd pre-Dark Side efforts, but Syd Barrett's contribution, "Jugband Blues" is incredible. It's almost had more influence on 21st century Neo-Psychedelia and indie pop than the Beatles.

This, apparently, is Floyd chronicler Nick Mason's favourite of their albums. It's easy to see why. It hangs together in a way that their previous outing just failed to do. The psychedelia is tempered ever so slightly, and comes off as being a more complete item than on Piper. Even the meandering and lengthy title track (which can take some getting used to), stands above the likes of Interstellar Overdrive. Of course, it's all too easy to fall into the trap of judging Saucerful by comparing it to its predecessor. But by itself it stands up too. A mixture of serious rock tracks and trite pop thrown together with some upbeat tracks mixing the two. Plus a contender for drawn-out rock track of the decade. Is Syd Barrett's significant influence missed on this album? Not really. Roger Waters fills in nicely, and David Gilmour makes his presence felt too. Pink Floyd would improve on this album, but not by much.

A somewhat unique and slightly overlooked entry in the Pink Floyd discography. It's easily the best album in their turbulent period between Piper and Dark Side, possibly even on par with Piper.
Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun is the first great Roger Waters Track.

I love the cover of this album because for me it visually represents every emotion it will make you experience. It's like you're travelling through cloudy dreams and even though it feels completely mad, you don't ever want to go back to earth again.

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.
