One of the must listens for any fan of Floyd. The title suite gets plenty of attention, and rightfully so. Aside from the filler "Mind Your Throats Please" section, the whole track is very powerful. The closing track is a little strange, but it you can overlook the odd cooking/eating noises, it's a very nice, soft acoustic tune. But the real gems of the album are the three tracks in the middle. Roger Waters' If is one of Floyd's most delicate tunes. Summer '68 is an underrated classic by Richard Wright. The best track on the album is David Gilmour's Fat Old Sun, complete with a perfect guitar solo to close out the song. Overall, Atom Heart Mother is one of Pink Floyd's finest pre-Dark Side albums.
You have to really be into Pink Floyd to appreciate how good this is. There's some great moments in Alan's psychedelic breakfast despite it being one of their most unpopular songs...
As far as 20 minute prog epics go, the title track is boringly average. Summer '68 and Fat Old Sun are the highlights.
one of my favorite album covers of all time.
fat old sun is an underrated floyd classic
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.
