Interesting but great album. The Live disc is fantastic. "Careful With that axe Eugene" might be the

best on there. The second album is epic. It's very different from everythything else they have made.

I'm not saying that it's neccesarily better but still great.



Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict is kinda

creepy at times.

This album is uh, it's something.



I played Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict (Jesus that is a long title) at a party and everyone left the room.

Ummagumma raises an important matter, quickly treated in the previous albums, The Piper..., A saucerful...: does the sound can serve the purpose of the music? In other words, like Pierre Schaeffer and his concrete music, does an ordinary sound, like the noise from the railway line, if it's catched, can be transformed into music?

In Ummagumma, despite of some melodious instants, the music is distorted, it goes all over the place.

The sound is no more the finishing point but the beginning one. We hear that on Meddle, with the first note, like a "sputnik" sound, a common radar bib, but so shivering. Ummagumma, because of the first part, where you find excellent live records, and because of the whole experimental reflexion about sound/music in the second disc, is a masterstroke in Pink Floyd career.

Grantchester Meadows, not Manchester!!!

A gorgeous area of countryside following the path of the river Cam, just outside of Cambridge where a lot of the band used to live. They often hung out at the famous Grantchester cafe, The Orchard, in their youth (also frequented by Wittgenstein and Bertrand Russell).

Sorry to be a pedant, but I'm going to be spending the next two months leading up to 1B exams there, trying to find a quiet spot to work...

I listened to it once or twice but that was a few years ago. Maybe I'll give it another listen again sometime soon but I don't remember caring for it very much.
