3 stars 'One Of These Days' - Pink Floyd (Single)

Here is a single from Pink Floyd's album 'Meddle', which has become something of a fan favourite. Although 'Meddle' is relatively obscure when compared to the big Floyd classics like 'Dark Side Of The Moon' and 'Animals', it is still a very good album for space rock, and the single 'One Of These Days' is quite indicative of this. The two songs here each take a fairly different approach, but their quality remains generally consistent. The first track here 'One Of These Days' is certainly not the sort of track I would first think works as a single, but it does give the listener a good idea of what 'Meddle' is all about. It has a distinctly Floydian vibe to it, and works almost like a jam moreso than a song. In any case, it is a well composed piece and is fairly charming, although it may lack the emotional dynamic that my favourite songs by this band have. Secondly is the track 'Fearless', which is much more song-based than the first song here, and instantly reminds me of Led Zeppelin's 'When The Levee Breaks'. Following a space rock tune, it seems strange to pair it with what I would best describe as delta blues rock, but it works well, and Pink Floyd gives the style their own unique voice.

Quite a good single, although I would not place either track as being one of my favourites from the Floyd.
