Pink Floyd The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
This was not to be, and Barrett was fired, to which he had a somewhat successful solo career, and is now living somewhere in England. Astronomy Domine The beginning of this album, uh, begins with simple guitar chords, over some person talking on a microphone. This is one of the pop songs of the album; it's not really that true to the psychedelic genre, even with the unusual time signatures. And it has that beautiful bridge part which I cannot get enough of.
Wright The Nu People Id Be Nowhere Today a bit in this song with his organ, the same to be said about the brilliant Barrett on his guitar.
The middle two minutes of this song is basically a big psychedelic Tom Moulton A Tom Moulton Mix Vol 1 session, which I have grown to love. It ends with some lyrics, and it has the bridge part again at Lucifer Sam This song immediately gets you thinking about the Batman theme, they are remarkably alike.
This song's form is similar to Astronomy Dominelyrics, and a jam session in the middle and it ends with the lyrics out. A great song, although rather boring in parts. Not up to the standard of the previous song. Matilda Mother This song is probably the first song that really explores the psychedelic nature of the album. It begins with a simple organ intro, and it has quite simple lyrics, with an amazing bassline. Lyrics are fiddled with, sometimes normal, other times saturated with echo, and often backed with choir sounding vocals.
The guitar, sounding like the Arabic snake charmers, is brilliantly soloed over a hi-hat and someone breathing rather heavily. A highlight of the album for me. Flaming This song starts of rather melancholy-ish, a low motor-like rumble is accompanied by various sounds, like a kettle at least I think that's what it is!
This song sounds like it has been directly taken off the Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club album and been put on this one. The lyrics are given to us in an airy, childish way, with a repetitive snare drum. Lyrics such as: Quote:. Lyrics such as: Quote: Alone in the clouds all blue Lying on an eiderdown.
You can't see me But I can you. I want to tell you a story About a little man If I can. I've got a bike, you can ride it if you like It's got a basket, a bell that rings and things to make it look good I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it. You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world I'll give you anything, everything if you want things. I know a mouse, and he hasn't got a house I don't know why I call him Gerald He's getting rather old, but he's a good mouse.
