Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 12/9/99, p.82
4.5 stars out of 5 - "...a masterpiece of the [psychedelia] genre....the golden achievement of Syd Barrett....a milestone in what soon would be called 'head music'..."
Q - 8/99
Included in Q Magazine's Best Psychedelic Albums of All Time
Q - 6/00, p.69
Ranked #55 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums"
Q - 1/95, p.275
5 Stars - Indispensable - "...PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN is, even counting SGT. PEPPER, possibly the defining moment of English psychedelia and Syd Barrett's magnum opus; strange, sad, and a record that all should own..."
Uncut - p.101
5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hese Edward Lear-ish messages from the mind of Syd Barrett served as a reminder to even The Beatles...that pop is at its best when it's headed into the unknown."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.48
Ranked #40 in Mojo's "The 50 Most Out There Albums Of All Time" - "Thirty eight years on, there's nothing like it..."
Paste (magazine) - "'Astronomy Domine' is an early showing of the band's space rock tendencies. With Syd Barrett at the helm, 'Astronomy Domine' is suitably psychedelic sounding..."
