I hated The Wall the first few times I listened to it - that's an album that really has to grow on you. But it is a great piece of work.

Atom Heart Mother (the song) is too long, but it has a few "oh my god" moments, like when the orchestra really gets going near the beginning, or when it all folds in to just Rick Wright's synth and Roger's bass. I heard some story about them recording the backing track all the way through in one go....must have been tough.

I really like the title track but I do think they repeated the main theme too many times and they shouldn't have included a reprise of Breast Milky.

My favourite song on the album is Summer '68. Again, really underrated.

Yeh, the three 'meat' tracks, Summer '68, If and Fat Old Sun are VERY good. Fat Old Sun is a mainstay on my 'stoned' playlists for the occasional times I need to play it  Wink

It easily surpasses the studio version of the Wall!



It does not. But it's a great live album.

One of those bands that is difficult to talk about, because there's so much to be said...I love just about everything they've done up to and including The Final Cut. I guess you can call me a fanboy. I think Animals is their best effort objectively, but Dark Side means much more to me. I've been going through so many obsession phases with The Wall that it's not even funny anymore. Saw Roger Waters performing it last year and cried like a baby. But maybe in the end my favourite is Final Cut, just because it so rarely gets as much praise as the others and I think it's just as good, albeit in a different way. And Piper may just be the most representative example of that late 60's rockin', guitar-driven psychedelia that I love so much together with things like King Crimson and Jimi Hendrix.
