The Literal Truth

Early period Pink Floyd is better than middle or late Pink Floyd.

The Adventures of Odysseus are better than The Adventures of Bilbo Baggins.  Flat cartoons are better than three dimensional …

Why is it more interesting to say “There you will find the desert” – the void – than “There you will find djinns”? 

The mirage condenses into a – fantasy.  Towers, castles and princesses.  The intangible is literalised; anthropomorphised.  Nothing that isn’t part of the human image remains.  The ‘escape’ is only an escape back into the human image.

The first Pink Floyd is just psychedelia.  No image condenses from it.  Sense is suspended in the intangible inordinate.

Early Pink Floyd is better than middle or late Pink Floyd.
