Well, where to start with Ummagumma? Disc 1, I guess. The live component of this album is a decent set of tracks. None of the previously available tracks quite live up to their studio versions, but they're all good or better. And there is an element of the feel of a live show being captured (on headphones, at least). The second disc, however, is an extremely mixed bag. Some highs (Grantchester Meadows and The Narrow Way) and some lows (parts of Sysyphus and most of The Grand Vizier's Garden Party - sorry Nick Mason). Sadly, the way the tracks are grouped turns what is essentially a reasonably good album into a difficult listen, as one is constantly switching from listenable to challenging, sometimes in the same track. Not their finest hour, and one the band would increasingly distance themselves from.

Wild, weird, and mostly hard to take for most folks, but still creative and interesting to many. Essential Floyd? Depends on which Floys fan you talk to.

I don't usually like the non-conformist stuff, but the studio part on this is listenable (not high praise I know). The live part is much better than the equivalent studio tracks. Overall a great album, it's in my top 100. Waters gets to practice his Scottish accent, heard again on The Wall.

I could only make it through the live portion and by then I had enough of this album.

Ok, granted that they cheated a bit with the first disc pulling Astronomy Domine in from Piper at the Gates of Dawn and Saucerful of Secrets and Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun from Saucerful. Careful With That Axe Eugene has a very Barrett era tinge to it and to be honest I was surprised to learn that this is the first album it appears on. And so to disc two, the one berated by most including Floyd themselves. Breaking it down into its component parts, Granchester Meadows is excellent, very Barrett and if he had written it then it would be deemed a masterpiece. Several Species of Small Furry Animals ... is absolute shite! Sysyphus is reminiscent of early Tangerine Dream and I am ok with this track, I understand why others wouldn't be. The Narrow Way is excellent and points the way to what David Gilmour would be capable of in the future. The Grand Vizier's Garden Party is again reminiscent of very early Tangerine Dream to start with, the main element being the kettle drums fed through an echo unit. When it gets further in, it sounds like the record is sticking, at this point it has sadly moved into the realm of utter shite also! Have another look at the Hibgnosis sleeve, which one should be in 'the chair'? Perhaps that was what was going through their heads? This quite a low score for me. The first LP saves it along with the Hipgnosis cover.

Wow what a truly marvelous album. I have been really listening to this masterpiece lately. An album that is a great repeat listen. Truly something to sink your teeth into this is headphone music at its finest. Honorable Mention: Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, Animals, Dark Side Of The Moon, Meddle, The Wall, Obscured By Clouds, Atom Heart Mother

I simply cannot fathom anyone deriving any enjoyment from listening to the second disc of this album. 'Several species...' is just abominable, the Grand Viziers Garden Party is equally atrocious and the majority of the other tracks are either unlistenable or incredibly boring and aimless. The live side is not all the rave it's made out to be either (maybe because I don't like the Barrett Floyd so much!)
