I tried to give this album another "listen to" a couple months ago. I understand that is considered to be a prime example of British psychedelic music and avant-garde free-form, with most of the album's tracks predominantly written by Syd Barrett; but I never got into the Barrett hype. I fully understand that Syd had a lot of problems, so there is that sympathy factor; but his overuse of LSD didn't help matters.Pink Floyd - Piper at the gates of dawn
I guess it's a situation of different strokes for different folks when it comes to the Piper album. I did like "See Emily Play" though.
By the way... did anyone watch VH1 Classics yesterday? They had an all day marathon on Pink Floyd. Had some really good stuff.
