Really 7 should be top 5
Just amazing! When it comes to Ummagumma, nothing comes close to "The Narrow Way". It has 3 parts which are all amazing in their own unique way.
Part 1: Starts with an acoustic guitar with a bunch of space noises that come in after a minute or 2.
Part 2: The spacey noises in part one eventually fade into a dark yet catchy guitar solo that is once again covered over by strange noises.
Part 3: This is when David Gilmore starts singing but with really strange music. In my opinion, the strangest part of the album.
Oh, and one more thing. Listen closely to the vocals and the music...
Don't you think that it sounds like She Barrett's song writing. (Piper at the Gates of Dawn crossed with Jugband Blues).
Careful... Careful... Careful with that axe, eugene...
First example of screamo
If you are talking about the studio album (2nd disc) only, then this is the best song on the album. It is very peaceful and relaxing. Arguably one of the only "real" songs on the album, since the rest are just trippy instrumentals, save for a part of The Narrow Way. - Doom
Beautiful ballad about beauty of nature. Every time when I hear it, I want to go to the forest or the field and play this song on guitar over and over with singing birds and softly blowing wind. Such a magic.
Sound like a much longer version of the original its amazing
Ummagumma bom bom ummagumma bom bom ummagumma
This list is ridiculous lol. - SammySpore
I'm talking to you first comment on Granchester Meadows...
Ok, so you think that's the only "real" on th album? You don't think this is a song? Well I have news for you. This is called "art music or "experimental music", this is as much as a song as any other song in existence. The others on Ummagumma are "real" songs as well. And yes, Several Species of Small fury Animals is as much as a song as well.
It's not meant to be good. I think it's a funny.. uhm... song? poem? Especially in a dark room after smoking some weed.
