4 stars Atom Heart Mother- Im going to review all my favourite albums today and this one is no exception. Like Meddle this album contains an album side epic called Atom Heart Mother. It is a largely orchestral song which contains very little instrumentation from the band but instead from an orchestra and a choir. The song is brilliant in its composition and structure. Prog songs can sometimes get tedious around the 20 minute mark, but this song stays fresh from start to finish. Summer '68 is a very happy song that really cheers you up ni the morning. Other people have noted that this song is their wake up song in the morning and its true for me as well. Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast is a trippy little tune that also makes this album a gem. This album is largely overshadowed by the follow-up albums released by Pink Floyd but never-the-less it is still deserving of credit as a prog-classic.
