Even with some weak tracks on the "shorts" side, "Echoes" is my top 1 track, so neither a great album like Fragile can beat it.

Fragile is a landmark album nothing sounds like it--it has swing---and still sounds fresh and cool---Rick joined and their sound was complete--the individual songs highlight the individual talent and the group songs are the sum of those parts---it's also so important because this lineup inspired each other so much that they created a prog masterpiece next.

Both have amazing songs and both have mediocre fillers. I'd go with Fragile anyways

Two very different albums that I love for very different reasons, and cannot choose one over the other.

Although "Echoes" is my favourite Pink Floyd track, and "One of These Days" is awesome, that's not enough for me to vote for "Meddle" over "Fragile", which is my second favourite Yes album. I actually like the eclecticism of that album, though for me, it's "South Side of the Sky" that has the greatest appeal.
I was thinking about thinking but it really didn't get me very far.

I love Echoes, but Fragile is a complete album throughout.

This is cruel, but even though Meddle has Echoes, I have to go with Fragile, which for me is overall great, even with the solo spots, which I actually either find good just as well, or short enough to not harm the album. If only Wakeman had been able to include what he really wanted to contribute for his spot, as I understand it the song that became Catherine of Aragon, it would have made an important impact on the quality of the album.

Fragile.

Meddle is Pink Floyd's weakest and least innovative album.
