5 stars the 5th album of PINK FLOYD, colssing the decade of 60's. i'm talking 'bout "Atom heart mother". this album is totally diferent of all of his predecessors (with Alan Parson like enginner), and all of his sucessors too. here we had the album that would define to Pink Floyd like the band who became. the first song homonym to the album, with an aproximate time of 24 minutes, it's fricking awesome!! completely instrumental, classified in six different chapters, with the orchestra at the bottom... wonderful. then we have a theme by Roger Waters called "If" a beautiful acoustic song that it would a classic piece in his show performances (in the first half of the 70's decade). the next track "Fat old sun" composed by David Gilmour, an acoustic/soft melody too. the song of Richard Wright was "Summer '68", a little more heavy than the 2 predecessors. and to close "Alan's psychedelic breakfast" composed by the four members of the band with an aproximate time of 14 minutes. this particular song is amazing WE CAN LISTEN ALAN HAVING BREAKFAST!!! we can listen when Alan take his corn flakes (i wonder if it's Alan Parson), when his frying bacon, i'm really starvin when i listen this song, then the piano, and the other instruments. it's fabulous!! the whole album is a masterpice. enjoy it!
