I've been a Pink Floyd fan for many years - and for a while I was pretty much a fanatic. But there is one album I was never able to get into. And believe me I tried. I wanted to like it -I played it many times, hoping it would somehow click, but it just didn't.
Yes - it is an important album in the history of Pink Floyd. Without Atom Heart Mother, there would probably be no Dark Side of the Moon. It kindof marks the signpost where the early Floyd turned into the fully realized Floyd. If you need to complete your Pink Floyd collection, by all means, get it.
However, if you are new to Pink Floyd, or looking to expand beyond Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall, don't look here. You will be disappointed.
With that said, it does have one of my all-time favorite album covers (for whatever that's worth).
