3 stars This is a weird single promo for the "Meddle" album but I always loved 'One of these Days' in any form. It begins with a wind effect signifying the calm before the storm. An echoing bass and a chugging one note riff launches the track before the organ swells rise up and crash down like ethereal sonic waves. Wright is masterful on this and the dynamics and drama created by simple staccato chord swells is incredible. The light show on the DVD 'P- U-L-S-E' would complement this with an extraordinary light show. The half time feel is an effective delay bass heavy acrostic hook that creates an ambience that is ominous and foreboding. This is the part of the song where the pigs appear in concert. The drums crash down as we imagine someone bashing at the door to get in and then the monstrous voice roars, "One of these days I'm going to cut you into little pieces!" As the door is broken down the murderer enters ready to kill, and then the music rises to a crescendo and Gilmour slaughters us with slide guitar slashes, performing torturous glissando runs and screaming bends with finesse. The wall of sound is glorious and then the freakout ends with the soul chilling delay effect. Quite simply, quintessential Floyd.

Side 2 is a throwaway track 'Fearless' that I was never interested in and rarely listen to these days. The tracks ranges from poor to OK and is really just a space rock song with forgettable melodies.

Certainly this is worth picking up for the picture cover and rarity more than for the actual music which is easy to get on Cd these days.
