4 stars Meddle is a mixture of great tracks (ONE OF THESE DAYS; ECHOES), good ones (FEARLESS) and songs I don't care about (the rest). I always put side 2 of my vinyl version on the turntable first. To have Echoes first is just great - and best of all - you got the howling dog of SEAMUS last which I find most fitting as an ending to this amicable record. Although the Floyd hammer out a 23 minute opus the whole album is lacking the pretentiousness we have to suffer on later recordings (especially WYWH, The Wall and Final Cut). Maybe I like it because it's the last of PF's outings I can find humour in (the dog, the crowd at the football stadium). Echoes was a small step for man but a giant leap for Pink Floyd. If side 1 were as good as side 2 this would have been an immortal album. so it's 4 well-earned stars.
