Syd Barrett - The Madcap Laughs (1994) Retail CD
Having left Pink Floyd in 1968 after a daily LSD habit had taken its toll, Syd Barrett's first solo album finally appeared two years later with ex-Floyd sidekicks Dave Gilmour and Rick Wright riding shotgun with him in the studio. The Madcap Laughs is a brilliant but brittle album, with every strum of the electric guitar seeming to take its toll on Barrett's increasingly frayed nerve strings. On songs like "Love You", his state of mind is well concealed beneath the sort of jolly ice cream van jangle-pop Blur would later indulge in. On "Dark Globe", however, the strain is palpable: "Please landmore… a hand ... won't you miss me? Wouldn't you miss me at all?" he pleas, ominously. Best tracks are "Octopus" with all the controlled mania of early Floyd and "Golden Hair", a still moment of musical rapture whose lyric is taken from a James Joyce poem. --David Stubbs
