A Saucerful of Secrets

( 7 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
A transitional album on which the band moved from Syd Barrett's relatively concise and vivid songs to spacy, ethereal material with lengthy instrumental passages. Barrett's influence is still felt he actually did manage to contribute one track, the jovial "Jugband Blues", and much of the material retains a gentle, fairy-tale ambience. "Remember a Day" and "See Saw" are highlights; on "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun," "Let There Be More Light," and the lengthy instrumental title track, the band begin to map out the dark and repetitive pulses that would characterize their next few records.

    One of the best Pink Floyd albums

    I love this album. Let There be More Light is an awesome song. And Saucerful of Secrets is simply wonderful when your on something. The drums in Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun are awesome!!

    Great Sound For Floyd

    Even though this may not be my favorite album, it sounds so amazing. Here are my reviews for each song. Let There Be More Light(5/5)-The throbbing bass line with the spacey keyboards make a perfect introductory to this album. Remember a Day(5/5)-This is a nice song with many interesting hints of psychedelia. Set The Controls(4/5)-It is really dark and mysterious, but very cool. Corporal Clegg(5/5)-This is probably my favorite song because of the guitar work by David Glimour. A Saucerful of Secrets(5/5)- Unless you don't like avant garde, you'd like this song. It is long and dark which probably along with many other songs defined Pink Floyds early sound. See Saw(5/5)-This is very childish and makes me smile. Jugband Blues(5/5)-This song is definitely like what Syd Barret would write. It's dark and bright at the same time. Overall, this album isn't for everyone but if you like Piper At THe Gates Of Dawn, this is a must buy.

    An Awesome Masterpiece

    this album is incredible. the themes, the song lengths, the songs and themes of space rock, all are awesome. i particularly love corporal clegg and set the controls for the heart of the sun. the guitar is awesome on all the songs, even if they do get weird. i'd recommend this to any fan of the floyd.

    Words can't say it!

    This is one of my favourite albums, next to the Pink Floyd Meddle Album. From Let There Be More Light, to Jugband Blues, this album is a must have for all fans of the sixties music, and (of course) Pink Floyd. The title track, Saucerful Of Secrets, is possibly the strangest song ever composed. It's lengthy episodes, and spaced out tones are a wonder to marvel at. I have all of the Pink Floyd albums, and I think that I listen to this one, and Meddle the most :)

    Awsome

    A definative album by Pink Floyd and the first one that really sounded like what Pink Floyd would be doing it put the rock in psychadelic rock not to take anything away from Piper at the Gates of Dawn put this was heavier and has some of there best songs and a must have for all Floyd fans as it is the one David Gilmoure makes his Floyd debute on and the last Floyd album that Syd Barret is on.
