Regardless of Syd's contributions this album paves the way for most Pink Floyd's fans. When I first spun this album of my own record player in 74, I was floored. 15 and trippin in the early 70s, nothing could have etched itself more into my life than this album. There's this poetic, if not infantile, fairy tale atmosphere to most of the songs that strikes a universal chord of identification.
call me a post hippie freak...I could care less. This album/CD...Rules!
