4 stars With the album Meddle, Pink Floyd takes a new turn in their musical proposal, endowing it with touches of forcefulness and solvency, still very incipient in their previous works, despite the symphonic effort in the Atom Heart Mother suite. Continuing with their constant interest in discovering and adapting new sonorous nuances, but much more mature, a couple of themes for posterity and fundamentals in Pink Floyd's basic discography are dispatched. The overwhelming and aggressive instrumental piece One of These Days, and the immeasurable Echoes, developing in its 23 minutes extensive experimentation, guided by Richard Wright's keyboards, which provide unique atmospheres to the entire development of the song. Less complex, Fearless football is a beautiful acoustic theme and is still chanted today by Liverpool fans, having included their famous sports choir "YouŽll Never Walk Alone" in the song. Both A Pillows of Winds, San Tropez, a very digestible light jazz, and Seamus, howled by a dog of the same name as the song, complete the album with a discreet contribution. Meddle is the excellent beginning of a new stage of Pink Floyd, which would end up consolidating in all its splendor with the subsequent album and capital work Dark Side At The Moon.
