2 stars Meddle was the record where Pink Floyd started to leave the raw psychedelics of their 60s and early 70s so that they could be more focused into song writing and much more detailed music. Pretty much the only reason why this album is popular is because of Echoes, because the rest of the album is either just ok or straight out a joke song.

This album, similar to Atom Heart Mother, has each band member shine in each track. One Of These Days has Roger Waters providing some sweet bass lines. A Pillow Of Winds has some great guitar work even if it's a little monotonous. Fearless is a fan- favorite and probably the best of the short tracks, it has a hypnotic guitar line and chorus.

San Tropez is one of the joke songs in the way that it doesn't fit the album at all, it has a western vibe. Seamus is yet another joke song where you can hear dogs barking, yeah that's all I remember about it. Echoes is very clearly the standout of the album and one of their best songs to date. The chorus is very iconic and the jamming section is excellent. It's a very cohesive track.

Echoes definitely deserves the five star rating, but the rest brings it down. A very enjoyable album nonetheless.

Ian McGregor | 2/5 |
