5 stars The first Floyd masterpiece!

"Meddle" is arguably the first fully developed and perfectly produced PINK FLOYD album, following the unsuccessful experimentation of "Atom Heart Mother". Everything works fine here, even the unusual combination of several easy mostly acoustic songs flavoured with folk and some bluesy touches, surrounded by two premier space rock anthems, the opening "One of These Days" and the epic "Echoes", makes much sense and offers more than a pleasant and adventurous listening. Without excessive psychedelic sound effects (the "ping" from "Echoes" is more than just an effect...) and orchestral arrangements, the foursome delivered a strong sonic texture that ranks among their finest achievements and is a refreshing and interesting listen every time you put the disc on, equally in 1971 as today. Truly remarkable piece of music and a must for any prog collection.

Seyo | 5/5 |
