I got into Pink Floyd listening to The Wall. After that, I listened through Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Meddle, Ummagumma, and Animals and loved it all. Finally, though, I picked up their first album, which I knew was going to be very different. I didn't know what to expect. "Astronomy Domine" is the first song, of course, and, man, once this thing got going... Whoa. My brain had a "WTF" moment like it hadn't had since the first time I watched Brazil. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. It's basically a song about pondering the vastness of space—possibly while high—and finding the experience overwhelming. This is where the Flaming Lips were born.

Next #psychedelic jam is the influential first track from Pink Floyd's first album, The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn (1967). Gently unhinged, this is. Much love for Syd.   10
