    Nick Mason is kind of underrated as a drummer and the live versions of this song prove it.

    Ahhhhhh, the B chord at the end. That final collection of notes that wraps up all the chaos into a happy ending.

    This song blew my mind, just like Echoes

    Roger Waters would be so hot if he wasn't an ugly asshole. Other than that...he's fucking hot!

    One of the rare times Rick used a mellotron. Don't think he used one again after "Atom Heart Mother".

    Yeah the live versions own. They are a bit 'harder' and the drums turn it into a beast. The beautiful section at the end is just a bunch of chords. Grab your guitar and bust it.

    The peak of what Pink Floyd did best.

    It amazes me how many Pink Floyd fans don't know this song, for me its easily in the top 5 of their most psychedelic songs.

    Avant-garde masterpiece. When I was a kid I had this song all figured out, how it's about an alien spaceship landing in a desert. :)

    The organ part gets to me. My father was born in 1940 and learned to play organ, he mostly plays church music but it's exactly what an organist in the Floyd's day would have been exposed to. He is currently 73 years old, has had many close encounters with death by accident or illness and as with everyone it's only a matter of time. This song makes me want to record one of his organ pieces that I've taken for granted my whole life; maybe even to use at the funeral. Usually I only think in this mode when I'm on mushrooms but at this time I'm just high on Pink Floyd. Legendary, eternal, psychedelic. How fitting to record a version of it in a ruined theater in Pompeii.
