4 stars In my mind, there are 3 "levels" of Pink Floyd music. Level 1: ANIMALS, WISH YOU WERE HERE, DARK SIDE OF THE MOON Level 2: THE WALL, MEDDLE, parts of ATOM HEART MOTHER Level 3: Everything else.

While MEDDLE is a great album, and the first epic album from Pink Floyd, (The first "real" Floyd album), I feel it falls a bit short of the 3 "classics". The best here are the monumental "Echoes", "One of These Days", "A Pillow of Winds", and "Fearless". All are great, classic Floyd tracks. However the 2 shorter tracks at the end of side 1-"Seamus", and "St Tropez" are basically silly, throw away tracks that are more in line with the earlier incarnation of Floyd. They are the only thing keeping this from being a 5 star masterpiece. However, a solid 4 star rating is certainly acceptable here. As we all know- the best was yet to come.
