Syd Barrett - Barrett - 1970
Here's the second solo album by Syd Barrett.
It's pretty much the same as the first album,
just with different songs, but that's not a bad thing.
He was just doing his thing and he wasn't really trying
to impress anyone, he just wanted to be heard
and even then, he didn't want that too badly either, heh.
If there is a difference between the two albums,
it would be that he seems slightly more confident in this one
and this one also seems to have had a bit more thought
put into it and more time into the mixing, but not much.
Still, I love this album and it's very relaxing in a really
trippy kind of way.
The third track, 'Dominoes', has a very curious
guitar slow solo sliding throughout the whole thing.
Apparently, when they recoded it, they did the whole song,
the reversed it, then Syd just played the guitar track over it.
When he was done, they re-reversed it and thus we have this
very interesting guitar sound that has yet to be mimicked!
