5 stars Meddle is first album from Pink Floyd Excellent serie of four great prog albums in rock music history. ( Obscured by Clouds is a different one and stays outside of this line, but TDSOTM,WYWH and Animals all are great).

After years of psychedelia, sound experiments, foly,bluesy,space ,etc. songs, Pink Floyd at least found there own face and sound which will stay in history of rock music for years as classic Pink Floyd sound. Meddley is first evidence of it.

Still soft in many moments, still a bit bulky, still with some traces of early band's psychedelia, their sound became more rhytmic, more organised, mid-tempo melodic. You can hear many future great moments right in all Meddley songs.

One Of These Nights and Echoes both are absolute classics. At the same time, Waters is still not an absolute leader there, so common sound is not so sad, depressive or dramatic.

This album ( near three great PF other ) is must have one in any progressive rock fan collection.
