So, am I the only one that thinks this is better than Meddle and The Piper at the Gates of Dawn?

I see how people might not love this album as much as some of their others, but this gets hated on, which I completely don't get.

I also absolutely love the album cover. If you don't like the album, you could at least appreciate the work that went into the cover, right?

This is also my 600th rating btw!

You can definitely tell that the band was freaking out after Syd left. "Ummagumma" is filled with bland nonsense and horrible ideas. I recommend that you only listen to the live performances, as they're actually really good compared to this shit.

Fav Track: Grantchester Meadows

Least Fav Tracks: Several Species of Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict, Sysyphus
