5 Songs, 52 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

1970 found Pink Floyd at their wildly experimental peak. Covering the first side of the original LP, the 23-minute instrumental title track is wonderfully grandiose, featuring some killer David Gilmour guitar solos and the band's first (and last) extensive use of orchestra and choir. Before the album ends with the quirky tape-loop-enhanced epic "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast," a trio of remarkably lovely acoustic songs—highlighted by Roger Waters' delicately philosophical "If"—showcases the band's growing lyrical sophistication.

Holy hell

Not like any other Pink Floyd. Very musical, long songs that develop like a classical piece but still recognizable as rock music.

My entry point was Summer '68, heard twenty years ago, but I'm really glad I decided to finally buy the whole album.

If you don't buy the album just get Summer '68 anyway. It's like nothing else. In a good way.

One of the best Pink Floyd Albums

Animals’ less predictable big sister who always gets shoved to the back of the family photos. This is my favorite Pink Floyd album, but it probably isn’t for everyone.
