3 stars Relics!

It is strange I had not reviewed this album before. But well, there is actually not much to say. This is a compilation album released back in 1971, a compilation of some of their most representative songs from the 60s, songs that are loved among die-hard fans who follow the Pink Floyd since their very roots. Here you will have a slice of their psychedelic moments with songs such as "Iinterstellar Overdrive" or the awesome (because I really love it) "Careful with that Axe, Eugene".

Shorter compositions like the opener "Arnold Layne", "Julia Dream", "Paintbox" or "Bike" are also shared here. Songs that may not represent the brightest moments of the band, not even the proggiest moments because someone may argue that some songs here have something to do with prog, but nonetheless those are songs that the early phase of the band, which are good if you want to understand their roots and know them deeper.

If you know their most popular albums such as Dark Side or The Wall, and like them, please don't stay only with them, I invite you to listen and know their earlier tunes (though I firstly recommend you the studio albums), so Relics may work for that. My final grade will be three stars.

Enjoy it!
