#343: The Piper at the Gates of Dawn by Pink Floyd

6.30.2011


The Piper at the Gates of Dawn by Pink Floyd (1967)

Favorite Track(s): "Lucifer Sam" and "Chapter 24"

Thoughts: I have to say this is my first real Pink Floyd listen. I know a few of their songs, but am not at all familiar with their catalog. I believe this is their debut album?

Anyway, I liked it, but as I've said for other albums before, I think I'm a bit too sober to fully appreciate it. I'm such a square, it's true. "Interstellar Overdrive" was a pain to get through, and the rest was just mediocre to me. So far I rank new-to-me 60s rock bands thusly:

1. The Yardbirds
2. Rolling Stones
3. Pink Floyd

Is This Better Than A Hard Day's Night?: Nope.
