4 stars Meddle is one of my Floyd favorites... I really like the atmosphere on this album and I really love every tune on it (even Seamus... love that little experiment).

One Of These Days is a killer opening tune and it's very different to the rest of the album. In general I think this is Rick's best album and especially his sound is awesome. His hammond on this track is simply one of the greatest sounds I have ever heard! And I love the way the song builds up.

A Pillow Of Winds, Fearless, San Tropez and Seamus I put in kinda the same catagory. They are all more relaxed and not so sound experimental. I think all 4 of those are lovely and they really contribute to the mood of the album which I really like.

Echoes is hard to describe... in my book it is one of the best musical pieces ever written and recorded... it is simply pure magic. There is really no part of this track that I don't love, so I wont get into the song at all I guess... I think it speaks for itself. I relly like the version on Live At Pompeii... great to see those 4 guys performing it. And also the version Gilmour (and Wright etc.) performed in 2006 was jaw-droppingly. It was with no doubt the highlight of the show I saw in London and acccording to the rest of the crowd they agreed. It was the moment when you could close your eyes and everything was perfect. The sounds, the lights.... it was truly (I guess) just like hearing the real deal with Mason and Roger back in the day!

Hmm what else to be said.... I really like the cover. it's great that you can't see what it is until you fold it all out, and it is really different from most of their other album artwork.
