PINK FLOYD / Atom Heart Mother [1970]

Nearly disowned by the band members themselves, Pink Floyd's highly experimental 1970 LP Atom Heart Mother isn't as bad as they make it out to be.
It's not all that great either.
The title track is muddy 23 minute long opus that shows shades of brilliant experimentation but they get lumped together and lead us down aimless roads offering no real conclusion. The songs on "Side B" do pretty much the same thing but are much more cohesive and enjoyable as separate listens.
A bit of a dip in The Floyd's career but is forgiven seeing as what is to come in the following decade.
