4 stars This Pink Floyd album is somewhat polemic but it has an interesting structure: it songs are quite different - in many aspects. They are:

Atom Heart Mother - Probably my favorite Pink Floyds song. Atom Heart Mother is a soberb suite and incredible at every single secnd of its 24 minutes! Reminds me much of modernism period on classical music and Pink Floyds space-rock is also included most of the time. Concrete music is also found together with psych effects and, one of the greatest features, the vocals: only an orchestral choir, some bizarre sounds and two little speechs! Atom Heart mother is an epic song: it's born, it grows, it dies. I wonder a flowers life when i listen to this song.

If - A simple and short song, guitars and vocal. The lyrics are nice but it doesn't deserves any highlight. Thank God is a short song.

Summer '68 - A delightful melodie on piano and a song that everybody likes to sing. The metals part are its climax. A great song composed by Richard Wright; better than Waters "If" or Gilmours "Fat Old Sun".

Fat Old Sun - another simple song that doesn't deserve highlights. Only its guitar is enjoyable.

Alans Psychdelic Breakfast - A great experimental song fractioned in three parts. The song has speechs and concrete music features and also is made of some jazzy and calm melodies.

Finally, AHM is not a masterpiece but the first and the last songs are just incredible and they are like 3/4 of the album. It deserves 4 stars!
