5.0 out of 5 stars A must have album, June 4, 2000
This review is from: Atom Heart Mother (Audio CD)
I've been a Pink Floyd fan for years and track down all their obscure stuff just like every other fan. This album usually falls through the cracks when Pink Floyd's massive canon of work is reviewed. Too bad, because this album is truly groundbreaking.
Listen to such magic as Summer of 68, which uses some nice horn work. The title track is a sprawling opus mixing classical, rock and funk with great effect. My all-time favorite is Fat Old Sun, which just might be the best PF song ever. The guitar track in this song is quite simply mindblowing. Even better then Comfortably Numb, in my opinion. The album is rounded out by the acoustic beauty of If and the fun Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast, which has great percussion work by Nick Mason.
Any serious Floyd aficianado already has this album, but budding fans need to pick it up. Besides, you newbies have to give yourself a break from The Wall and Dark Side of the Moon, anyway!

Atom Heart Mother is my first choice pick for a "Desert Island Album" I was fortunate enough to hear/see it performed live and that experience will stick with me forever. My utmost respect to Pink Floyd.

I very much agree is one of my first choices
is certainly a masterpiece, despite those who disparage
very unfairly
