Atom Heart Mother Tracklist:
When I first heard this, I discovered a new side of Pink Floyd. I had always known the 70' progressive rock Pink Floyd. But then I found the psychedelic side. David Gilmour's solo in 'Fat Old Sun' is one of his greatest solos yet. Wish this album was not so overlooked. Buy the whole thing! Trust me, it's worth it.
Although I gave the 3 non-instrumental tracks on the album (If, Summer '68, and Fat Old Sun) 5 stars and the title track 3 stars (and Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast 4 stars, even though the eating parts are gross), all of the songs are very well done and a great example of a band still developing it's sound. Even my dad liked it after really listening to it a lot (and he doesn't normally like the band's earlier music) However, if you're looking for something like "Dark Side Of The Moon", this is definitely NOT it.
Not like any other Pink Floyd. Very musical, long songs that develop like a classical piece but still recognizable as rock music. My entry point was Summer '68, heard twenty years ago, but I'm really glad I decided to finally buy the whole album. If you don't buy the album just get Summer '68 anyway. It's like nothing else. In a good way.
