Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: Pink Floyd Rated 9th!
"Such galactic space jams as 'The Gnome' and 'Interstellar Overdrive' have a garage-y quality: it is pre-synthesizer, so Barrett's edgy guitar complements Richard Wright's churchlike organ and piano and Norman's studio magic, while Roger Water contributes spooky vocal harmonies and animalistic sounds, all of which anticipate the symphonic synth-and-slide of Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and other latter-day Floyd recordings." - Greg Cahill, The Absolute Sound Buyer's Guide 2016 Read The Full Review Here!
Pink Floyd's debut album released in 1967 features the original line-up of Syd
Barrett, Roger Waters, Richard Wright and Nick Mason.
Since 1967 Pink Floyd have produced one of the most outstanding and enduring
catalogues in the history of recorded music.
"I'm full of dust and guitars," Pink Floyd's Syd Barrett told Rolling Stone.
Here's what that sounded like. The band's debut is all playful, psychedelic
imagery and acid guitars. "Astronomy Domine" shows the group's pop side;
"Interstellar Overdrive" shows its spacier freakouts." -
"This reissue will blow the minds of those used to the original American
release, while those familiar with the U.K. version might have mixed feelings
though mostly good ones. The pushed top end quality of the original gives way
here to a better tonal balance, with a more impactful drum sound and definitely
greater dynamics but it sounds as if the original's balance was what Smith
wanted..." - Michael Fremer, analogplanet, 9/11 Music, 8/11 Sound
