I have all the albums -- The Madcap Laughs, Barrett, Opel. I like them all roughly the same, IMO.

There's is some Syd fans over here for shure.
I am one myself.
I only have The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn ( Wich I adore )
But I also downloaded other songs. He was a really great artist and inspiration of mine.

Barrett is produced a lot better than The Madcap Laughs. There's some good material on the latter, but it always seems to me like they went out of their way to emphasise his mental state at the time. If it's between Opel and Barrett, definitely Barrett.

I agree. Besides, Opel is kind of an odds and ends album so Madcap and Barrett are definitely the prime choices. Piper is also good, named after chapter 7 of the Wind in the Willows, lol. Madcap was before Barrett though..who do you think went out of their way to emphasize his mental state? He had full control creative control over the two productions so you must be referring to somebody involved during the post production and marketing phases? Please specify, I'm interested.

elbislvnl he was probably referring to the fact that because of his deteriorated mental state that those who produced him, i.e. david gilmour and such may have used his descent into madness as a theme for the album, look at the cover and the title, it makes sense

and although he may have had creative control he wasn't "all there" so those working on it with him could definately have done things without syds knoweldge or intent

I see. Well I suppose it's a definite possibility especially considering other projects of Gilmour and Waters referencing Barret such as Wish You Were Here and The Wall (film).
