I love Alan's, although I wasn't smitten right away. It took a few listens, but this album is essential in many ways. It has a very pastoral feel to it even with the sweeping Atom Heart Mother suite. I love that Roger said no to Stanley Kubrick to using the main piece for A Clockwork Orange because he wanted to cut it up as he saw fit. Brilliance in action. However having said that, the piece totally goes with the visuals in the movie. It would have worked beautifully.Massed Gadgets wrote:I wouldn't go as far as calling AHM my favourite PF album, but it is the only album by them that, for me, doesn't contain a single weak track. I think it's just a lovely album from start to finish. I never understood the hate-on so many fans have for Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast. I fell in love with that piece the first time I heard it. What's so bad about it?
If is a great song. I love David's faraway guitar riffs.
Summer 68 is Ricks masterpiece. I love this song. Musically it reminds me a bit of Sesame Street. Jaunty but serious.
Fat old Sun is great too especially the solo. One of his best, I feel.
Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast is great too. Makes me want to get up early in the morning and have a massive breakfast of everything. Can you tell I love this album??
