4 stars Well being a big Floyd fan i really wanted to have the CD containing the epic ECHOES which i was a fan of on first listen. Luckily i was album to track in my opinion an album that really stirred things up in the succes of the FLOYD...MEDDLE. Meddle is an album that has great proggressive moments, awesoe gilmour solos, cool keyboards and some great vocal haromonies by gilmour and waters. It kicks off the great pink floyd instrumental ONE OF THESE DAYS which some how is an instrumental i knew for years i just never knew what the title of the song until i finally got Meddle. Its a really great song and a very popular song for the Floyd as it starts with a great dynamic bass line with drums. and then the whole band joins into a great track that really kept me on the edge of my seat. Roger Waters and Nick Mason pawned on this track great job guys. Then the next are some nice acoustic tracks A PILLOW OF WINDS and FEARLESS. i will say i wasn't too impressed with them but they aren't that bad for some nice relaxed acoustic songs. The track two are some humour tracks for the Floyd SAN TROPEZ has this sort of honky tonk fill with a little psychedelic too them and SEAMUS is just an enjoyable track about a Dog with a bit of barking in the background. And now THE MAIN EVENT ECHOES!!!!! one of the best epics of prog history. Now i know fans love CLOSE TO THE EDGE and SUPPER'S READY but this track right up there with them as it contains some of Floyd's best stuff and GAH I LOVE THE FUNKY instrumental its so tight i just love this song every member does such a great job with it. So basically this Cd is good its not as great as Dark Side and Wish you Were Here but its not bad. This album is more like THE YES ALBUM OR TREPASS of pink floyd a setup album into which masterpieces would be made in the next couple of albums. So anyway if you wanna hear some cool stuff check this album out its definitely got great stuff.
