Go To

Silence in the studio!
—Nick Mason, "Atom Heart Mother"
The sound of music in my ears.

Atom Heart Mother is the fifth studio album by Pink Floyd, released in 1970. The album also has major contributions from Ron Geesin, whom had previously worked with Roger Waters.

Although a success upon release (though the title track always received mixed reviews, and "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast" isn't exactly a well-loved song), and remains popular to this day with fans, the band has since expressed their dislike for the album.
