Allmusic.com gave Ummagumma a 3 1/2 star review:
For many years, this double-LP was one of the most popular albums in Pink Floyd’s pre-Dark Side of the Moon output, containing a live LP and a studio LP for the price of one. The live set, recorded in Birmingham and Manchester in June 1969, is limited to four numbers…”Astronomy Domine,” “Careful with That Axe Eugene,” “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun,” and “A Saucerful of Secrets” are all superior here to their studio originals, done longer, louder, and harder, with a real edge to the playing. The studio LP was more experimental, each member getting a certain amount of space on the record to make his own music. ..Roger Waters’ “Grantchester Meadows” was a lyrical folk-like number unlike almost anything else the group ever did.
