A Saucerful of Secrets is the second album by rock band Pink Floyd, and marks the group's stylistic change from psychedelic to progressive rock. It was recorded at EMI's Abbey Road Studios, at various dates from August, 1967 to April, 1968. Due to Syd Barrett's declining mental state, this was to be the last Pink Floyd album on which he would work.

  • Hard to compare this gem with Piper. They're both ingenious in their own ways. But boy, how I love those early records.
  • Amazing album!
  • J'ai la version de 1968 ^_^ et j'avais le vinyle
  • Doesn't match up to Piper in my estimation. It's a very good album, particularly given the circumstances surrounding it, but Piper was a masterpiece and one of the 3 or 4 best rock albums of 1967. The guys aren't up to the level of songwriting prowess they'd develop just within the next couple of years, but there is a pleasing sense of experimentation and adventurousness that only got more pronounced on Ummagumma and Syd's "Jugband Blues" is devastating.
  • This one is much better and more mature than Piper. Also happens to be one of my favorite albums ever.
  • Releasing this after The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn must have been really disapponting for their fans. It's ok... But not even a cult record.
  • It amazes me how many supposed Pink Floyd fans get so mad about this album. It's tied for the best with Piper and DSotM.
  • Amazing album. Sometimes I think it's better than Piper.
