10/10 fairlight fm (September 16, 2005)
the best live renditions

of 4 epic tracks bringing a spell binding winding up the pyschedelic/barret era

unbeatable live tracks

set the controls / saucerfull of secrets

the mind blowing version of astromini domini
and the scary but hypnotic mind that axe eugene

the studio stuff pretty experimental but a prelude to atom heart and echoes

a must have in any self respecting record collection
8/10 hb (December 1, 2003)
strange, but sounds good when you're trashed. Some parts are scary.

If you know this album you can review it.
