The cow, the suite, the breakfast - AHM feels unique (like most of their records) and is the beginning of an outrageous run of albums released throughout the 70s.
I think AHM Suite is Floyd's best piece ever, fairly closely followed by Echoes off Meddle. Imho, DSOTM was an over-commercial disappointment although I have to say when I heard it live at The Rainbow before the album was released I did think it was brilliant. What changed between them performing it live and the album, I don't know - probably it was me!!
Could have been one of their greatest albums if they cut the Suit by about 5 minutes and replaced the atrocity that is Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast.
The orchestral main melody on AHMsuite, If anticipating The Wall's Goddbye cruel world and David's Fat old sun are the best moments.
Unless you're really into PF you can skip it without regrets.
Summer '68 is probably my favourite Floyd track
First of all, I cannot be too objective about instrumentals, and bearing in mind the opening title track instrumental is 23 minutes, I can only say it would appeal to me much more if it was about 15 minutes shorter and had a few words to it. But as instrumentals go, I do like some of it, it is simply way too long.
The main three tracks which have a vocal are If by Waters, Summer '68 by Wright and Fat Old Sun by Gilmour. These are all infinitely more interesting than the two overdrawn instrumentals. All three are on a par with each other, maybe Fat Old Sun is just about the pick of the bunch.
Favoritas: If, Fat Old Sun, Atom Heart Mother
Atom heart mother, is always thought of as the album with the cow on the cover. It's not Pink Floyd's best, but it does have some good stuff. The title track/suite on side one is okay, it's nice enough but still, so what? The second side features songs; Roger Waters', if, is excellent, probably the best track on the album. Wright's, summer '68, and Gilmour's, fat old sun, are decent. Alan's psychedelic breakfast, is okay, but like side one a little indulgent. Not a bad album, it's good that Pink Floyd have it in their catalogue, if only for that cover.
This and Obscured by clouds are their worst albums, which tells you how good the rest are.
It's not Wish you Were Here but definitely the beginning of the Pink Floyd that most people know....I like this album and it's well worth a listen.
