4 stars What is Atom Heart Mother?

It's Roger Waters of Pink Floyd takes his hand and leads them on a new road. Towards an infinite that is not dreamed by Syd Barrett.

Atom Heart Mother is the beginning of a new dream. Infinite spaces. Dense fog in the morning, God knows what in the English countryside, lost down there, where the sounds are mixed with the music and the music blends into the river.

The river mixes with orchestra of Ron Geesin and powerful notes of wind instruments that awaken us. The pictures in black and white on the inside cover is even more fun of the cover.

There are souls. More souls. Roger Waters and his uneasiness, his isolation from the things of the moment, to go further into the unknown. Gilmour and his guitar unique and recognizable at the first note played. His hair is long, the nights in the studio, Abbey Road ... Mason and his one hundred thousand drums, bells, triangles, trinkets ... And Wright, Wright's priceless, with its wonderful carpets music has been with us in life, with its notes aching, his perfect and agreements on a smaller scale ... Our anxieties, our fears.

Our anxieties, our fears? They would have all been described, and to the perfection.

It began from there. From this wonderful portrait of a morning, in England. It began by Atom Heart Mother.
