4 stars Cowy, but certainly not Cowardly.

Atom Heart Mother is really a great epic, featuring classical modern brass sounds and innovative vocals by the orchestra. It's the weirdest Floyd piece, I think. 'If' is a Waters song. Very nice, but not that special. Summer '68 is a brilliant Wright song, featuring a weird chorus and nice brass melodies. 'Fat old sun' is also very nice, but not that special. Alan's Psychedelic breakfast is brilliant. In the beginning of this piece, the track seems nice but very incoherent. At the end it's like all the pieces fit in the puzzle.

Brilliant record, but not a masterpiece because IMO 'If' and 'Fat old sun' are good but not essential. This makes the record an excellent addition to any prog music collection.

Foolsdrummer | 4/5 |
