4 stars The 70s had begun!!! With the 70s began the biggest trip in the world of music - the golden trip of Pink Floyd! And this trip begins with Atom Heart Mother. This album is big return for Pink Floyd after shock of the lost of their previous leader Syd Barrett, who quit the band. After two weaker albums Pink Floyd returns to the quality of the first two albums, but in different way. Atom Heart Mother is the first Pink Floyd's album, that is more progressive than psychedelic; and this transition is exactly at the beginning of the decade! Here is the longest Pink Floyd's composition - the eponymous Atom Heart Mother. The composition is progressive rock golden treasure. Then, followed by the melancholic-psychedelic songs - If, Summer '68 and Fat Old Sun - true masterworks of art. The album's final composition is Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast - its name is important. Firstly it's psychedelic indeed and secondly. This breakfast is described in the music - the most musique concrète song by Pink Floyd. They use musique concrète almost everywhere, but this song is true example of that. 4 stars
