|Floyd Finding Their Feet|
"Atom Heart Mother" found Pink Floyd struggling to define their sound and develop into a tight performing unit. I found the near-24 minute title suite boring although it implied some fine instrumentation. "Fat Old Sun" is the best track on the album, commencing with pealing church bells (the same ones utilized on "High Hopes" from "The Division Bell"?) and reflecting on life's youth. The acoustic and electric guitars perfectly suit the track. The 13-minute "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast" was a real hoot....who would have the cheek to employ the sound of breakfast cooking and a variation on the Chinese water torture? According to legend, after "Atom Heart" Roger waters insisted upon writing all the lyrics. Overall, an interesting album to check out....just not too well developed.

||One very good long tune|
The other tunes are a bit less, but this one track, atom heart mother itself, makes it worthwhile

||Fat old sun|
I'm a Floyd fan for 30+ years now and I still think Fat Old Sun is their best tune. 1970 to 77 is their best stuff. Nothing good after Animals.

Although a lot of people and the band itself is not very fond of this album, I think the level of experimentation on this album is remarkable. Pink Floyd at their progressive peak. The openning track is a symphonic ride with funky keyboards and echoing guitar solos followed by the very calm and soft "IF." Brilliant. "Summer of 68" is one of my favorite pink floyd songs. Rick Wright at his very best with his jazzy, slightly dark, and very powerful chord progression set to the sad tale of a relationships end.

||epic wall off sound|
its the most intriguing way of passing the torch from syd barrett to roger waters' new vision of pink floyd. the opening track engulfs you into the album with a near fifteen minute track of the most beautiful and elegant rock orchestra. the first track was followed by roger waters "if". a typical paronoid manic song of non existance and sorrow. richard wrights "summer of 68" brought back those innocent trippy days with the earlier syd barrett sound. dave gilmours' classic "fat old sun" makes you trance out to the final prelude "alans psycadelic breakfast". this is pink floyd's most underrated album and should be noticed for its timeless sound.
