5 stars Almost everything has been said about Pink Floyd and it's vain to believe that I have something useful to add..But being a new ''reviewer'', I felt almost forced to write some words about PF. ''Meddle'' is not so overanalyzed as other PF's albums and it still has a sense of mystery in it. From the wonderful abstract cover until the last note of ''Echoes'', there is a divine aura, the higher intelligence of a band that is ready to conquer the world..The first track ''One of these days'' is an explosive dynamite, possibly the heaviest PF moment ever and the proof that you can write history with 2 notes,literally. As a bassist I still find myself inspired by Roger Waters' minimalistic bass lines and especially the moog pedals use of the intro.Glorious! ''A pillow of winds'' is an awesome song, a delicate elegy, Gilmour's fantastic vocal lines and slide guitar stand out. Few talk about ''Fearless'' a seemingly simple but very psychedelic track, one of the best ''unknown'' PF tracks in my opinion.Have you ever noticed the influence of its main riff to 90's alternative artists?Jeff Buckley for instance? ''San Tropez'' is Waters' ironic moment and extremely cool at the same time, while the bluesy ''Seamus'' brings a jamming, relaxing break before the epicness of ''Echoes''. I have no words for ''Echoes'', not only the best PF song ever but one of the most amazing sonic journeys we will ever experience. Beyond description, just 20 minutes of perfection. Within ''Meddle'' we can hear most directions of all PF discography, from their psychedelic past to their future's milestones. ''Meddle'' stands in the middle, perfect and clear.
