Atom Heart is a top 5 Floyd composition for me.
More specifically, for the poll - Mother Fore is my fave section, of my favourite 'song' from the album, and Fat Old Sun (aka Sing To Me) is quite excellent too, a perfect Gilmour piece.

Summer 68 and Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast
I am currently digging:

Hawkwind, Rare Bird, Gong, Tangerine Dream, Khan, Iron Butterfly, and all things canterbury and hard-psych. I also love jazz!

Please drop me a message with album suggestions.

It was quite hard for me to choose between Atom Heart Mother and Fat Old Sun.

Same for me!
Especially I suggest the bootleg "Embryo San Diego, 1971", with the amazing 15 minutes versión of Fat old sun and Atom Heart Mother after it.

AHM stands so far above the others it is the only I will vote for. Not that the rest of album is bad in any way 'cause it isn't.

Atom Heart Mother and Fat Old Sun, although I prefer the live expanded versions of the latter (up to 15 minutes).
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

Atom Heart Mother and Fat Old Sun. Though indeed I like better the live versions of FOS, both the ones from back in the day as well as Gilmour's version on "Remember that Night" or "Live in Gdansk", in which he played the song in a more refined way.

Gilmour is just amazing. Fat Old Sun existed in a fabulous format back in the jammed-out stoner days. Amen to that !!
I prefer the Atom Heart suite without the orchestra and choir, the band alone did a wonderful job of the piece.
Live In Gdansk is an essential part of Prog history.....

I hate to be predictable but it has to be these two.

AHM is a work of genius.  Did you know the main them was originally Floyd's own take on a spaghetti western soundtrack (you can tell).  It was one of the first prog epics and hugely influential.  As the band said, they had to milk AHM to make Meddle.  Funky Dung is my favourite part.  A sign of things to come there.
