I was extremely surprised by this amazing record. Based on all the user and critic scores, I wasn't expecting to hear something nearly this good until I got to their album "Meddle" but it came early for me. I love the sound and the feeling of this album so much, especially during the first song, that I found it difficult to get the smile off of my face.

"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".

The title track Atom Heart Mother is an absolute banger and, since it takes up half of the runtime, reason enough to rate this album positively. Summer '68 is one of the best ringtones I've ever heard. Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast, aka a 13 minute track of some dude talking about his breakfast somehow grows on you, Fat Old Sun is solid, but If just makes me want to listen to Pigs on the Wing instead.
Also how tf did this reach #1 in the UK album charts?

Whole album is worth praising just for that title track alone which shows so much potential and progress in their songwriting. The rest of the material is good enough and enjoyable.
