4.0 out of 5 stars A-moo-zing, 6 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Atom Heart Mother (Audio CD)
I've always found this album very funny. You can't really tell if they were taking the michael or indulging in true hippy experimentalism. The title track is a meandering mess, but with a powerful and moving recurring theme. 'If' is a lovely song in its own right, and worth the price of the album in my view. Incidentally they did a live version of the title track in the early 70's which I have on a tape from a long forgotten John Peel show (from somewhere strange like the Bath & West show). It is a note perfect replica of the album version, which suggests that someone must have written down the score.
I was a big PF fan as a teenager (aren't all middle class boys) before I left them for the delights of The Smiths, The Birthday Party etc. This album, though, is worth a re-visit every now and then, if nothing else to remind myself how avant-garde I thought I was back then. And its surprisingly listenable even now. Ah, nostalgia.
