F for 47 critic score
I originally made a semi-meme review for this with like 3 words, but this is an amazing album and it deserves so much better. I'm therefore going to write a full-length review on this.

I want to mention that to me, this is the best Pink Floyd album and that nothing else even comes close to this. Not even meddle, which is another 100 score for me. This is one of my favorite albums of all time.

This album starts off with a grandiose side A with Atom Heart Mother Suite. This almost 24-minute ... read more
Even if Waters, Wright and Gilmour claim to abhor this record, (And based in that score, the critics seem to agree with them...)

"Atom Heart Mother" is a well-constructed, beautifully produced Pink Floyd album that would’ve been one of my favorites if it weren't for "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast".

Fav Tracks: Atom Heart Mother, Fat Old Sun, Summer '68

Least Fav Track: Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast

Atom Heart Mother is undoubtedly the most unique Pink Floyd album. the s/t song is by itself one of the most elaborated and complex pieces made by the Floyds. After that it leads to 3 different songs, each made by one of the momebers (sorry Manson), And ends with a sound collage of a pink floyd instrumentation and a man cooking and eating breakfast.

Nothing else to say...

Fav: Allan's Psychedelic breakfast, Atom Heart Mother, Fat Old Sun
