the more i listen to this, the better it gets. the hardest parts of this song rival the stooges and the softest parts rival the beatles. i can't believe they didn't release this as a single, i can't think of another song like it. sheer brilliance.
Peter Jenner called this "a song Syd wrote describing himself as he sat in the room of the studio". Many cite it as a document of Syd's monumental breakdown as a recording artist and as a person. Jenner wanted the song to be released on the Syd Barrett rarities album Opel, however the band blocked its inclusion.
