5 stars How I already said in other reviews...I'm not a Space prog enthusiast and ... so minus a PINK FLOYD fan...However, I entirely agree with the P A reviewers when they have conceded the highest quotation "Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music" from "Meddle". In fact, to me this album along with "The Dark Side of the Moon" and "Wish You Were Here" are the "sacred trilogy" from PINK FLOYD. This album is varied in terms of composition and musical "landscape". The first track "One Of These Days" is a space prog with a strong inclination to hard or heavy prog, the track 2 " A Pillow Of Winds' is a "meditative" song where Gilmour's lap steel ( or something like that ) and Wright's organ make a perfect 'tapestry", the track 3 is similar to track 2, but the repetitive rhythm "transfigure" the music in a type of martial theme, the track 4 "Saint Tropez" have a jazz "flavor", but is one weak moment into the album, the track 5 "Seamus" is another weak point. The track 6 "Echoes" without a trace of doubt, is which more contributes for the high note to this album.... with a fantastic overture when the band work is very consistent and equilibrated between all instruments, a heavy riff, a "improvisation" part, a special effects section and a return to the main theme very elaborated where the music slowly "walk' to eclosion and to retake their course until a almost "ethereal" end. My rate of course is 5 stars !!!
