    Not bad, but nothing next to DSOTM

    It's an album with songs of every range. The 1st and 6th track are awesome. The 2nd track is pretty cool. Fearless sounds like the Beatles more than Floyd. Tracks 4 and 5 are HORRIBLE. I am also a little disappointed that this album was not as conceptual as DSOTM, WYWH, or the Wall. It's the 4runner to the path of success.

    Meddle Around for a bit.

    If you decided to take an interest in Progressive Rock one day. You would inevitably be led to Pink Floyd. From there you would inevitably be led to Dark Side and The Wall. For a lot of people that's all they really know about Floyd, that's sad. This album is Magnificent, in my humble opinion it blows Dark Side out of the water without blinking. The album starts off with blowing wind setting the mood, then picks up with this weird echoey noise which keep going until the song " One of These Days is a raging storm of "Progress" complete with the bizarre vocal from Nick Mason. Track 2 is a quiter accoustic song which sets the mood for the rest of the first half. "Pillow of Winds" isn't my favorite track but it's a really nice song to be honest. Next follows the Anthemic sounding accoustic "Fearless" probably one of my favorites of the album it's so inspiring " And I'll climb, that hill in my own way, just wait a while, for the right day, and as I rise above the treeline and clouds, I look down, hear the sound of the things you've said today" that accoustic beat is brilliant too, so catchy. Next is that " San Tropez" song, it's so Jazzy and makes me think of just lieing around all day, it's also an opportunity to see Floyd relaxed something that almost never happens. Then it's " Seamus" one of Floyd's oddest and definately silliest songs.In this song David Gilmour narrates the actions of "his hound" Seamus complete with Seamus barking in the background fits right in with the Jovial mood introduced by San Tropez. Then comes Echoes an Elevating MasterWork. It begins with a simple pinging noise then evolves more and more. Echoes is true Progressive Rock as in it seems like something you'd hear in your mind, and it astonishes me to think that somebody actually recorded these sounds, it's genius really. Echoes is what transforms the album from a moderate collection of slow Tempo songs, to an Echoeing( pun intended) MasterWork that will Echo on for generations to hear. Come to this recording with an open Mind and you will not be disapointed - CM

    Pink Floyd: "Meddle"

    Here is a great (maybe their best) example of pre-"Dark Side of The Moon" Floyd music. It is very experimental and yet reaching. In a way no one else can, they treat the listener to an audio kaleidoscope with long musical scores that are engrossing without seeming long-winded, and never disappointing ("Echoes"), to the fun & bluesy ("Seamus"). And of course, the great pounding rock beat of opening track: "One of These Days" - remarkable sound from a two-chord song (reminds of the simplicity, yet great rockin' sound of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love"). A great album to sit (or lay) back and listen to on a lazy Sunday.

    Still Echoes true

    Forget the first 5 tracks, go directly to Echoes. It is worth every penny and more. This is a timeless piece and gives you a clue to where they are going from here to Dark Side of the Moon. I can see myself floating in the ocean with this, going all over from Antarctica
    to the Carribean and beyond........ what a beautiful piece.

    The best pre Dark Side Album By pink Floyd

    This is a great album. Echoes is one of the many pink floyd masterpeices. It from here pink floyd would become the best band at making you feel like your someware else. Pretty cool band if you ask me.

    Amazing Album

    Meddle definitely a top 5 Pink Floyd album. Echoes, being my 2nd favorite song ever (behind SOYCD also by Pink Floyd), is absolutely brilliant with great lyrics. One of These Days is a sweet instrumental, and Fearless is a very calm, relaxing song. Whether you're a fan of Pink Floyd or not, I suggest you pick this up ASAP.

    The best Pink Floyd album ever

    Although 5-Stars is the highest possible rating, I would give this album 10 stars if I could. This is truely one of the greatest rock albums ever recorded. Echoes is by far my favorite rock and roll song and features their best jamming. A timeless classic for any Pink Floyd fan.

    Possibly the Best Pink Floyd Album Ever

    I've heard a lot of songs by pink floyd, but I think the ones in Meddle are possibly among the top ten to twenty. Echoes, the longest song by far in this album (nearly 24 minutes!) never, ever drags on, and it is always has exciting parts following exciting parts. It is so fascinating to listen to, that it goes by faster than one would think. San Tropez and Seamus (as far as the actual music) seem the most unique compared to the other songs. They have a more optimistic tune to them compared to the others. All in all this album is amazing, and ranks next to Animals and The Wall. It's not just the lyrics, it's the music that takes your breath away. "One of these days I'm going to chop you into little pieces"...

    A Good Album that doesn't have it's recognition

    This is definetly one of Pink Floyd's best albums. Allthough people don't realize that. See everyone is allways talking about Dark Side of the Moon or The Wall and Animals and Wish You Were Here. Now don't get me wrong the albums I just listed are definetly some of the best albums of the world, but what I am trying to say is that this album should be recognised and loved. And there is another way I am pretty sure that any of you Floyd fans will like it, the reason is that it is just like Dark Side of the moon but less singing and lets admit it we all love David Gilmour's vocals, but we like the instruments better. I mean the instruments can put alot of feelings into songs. Oh yeah, my favorite songs on here are One of these days, Fearless and all time favorite Echoes; but don't worry the rest of the songs are real good too.

    You need to own this...

    This is my personal favorite, and it is a true classic!!! One of These Days and Echoes are the focal points. To me, this is the Floyd at their creative peak. It blends many styles of music together to for an extraordinary album.

    What An Amazing and Sadly Unknown Treat

    This album is incredible. From the windy opening of One of These Days to the spacey closer of Echoes, this is just a plain fun album. My favorite song would hav to be Fearless though it's all awesome. If you like the Floyd and don't have this album, you need it.

    EVERY PINK FLOYD ALBUM IS A 5 STAR RATING!!!

    Meddle is one of Pink Floyd's best albums ever. It's on the top best with Animals, Wish you wre here, dark side of the moon, and the wall.The song Echoes will blow your mind because how long it is and how great it is. Infact i love every song from this album and if your a fan like me you should too because if you don't, I will find you and I will say hi and annoy you until you like them all. : ) jk!

    Pink Floyd: Meddle

    There has never been an album as powerful as Meddle, Pink Floyd comes to an album that tells a story as Atom Heart Mother had also, A story of love. Someone leaves "Pink" lets call him, and he finds someone new, goes on vacation away from it all, and winds up back where he started. The guitar is more powerful in this album than it has been, save for in Animals perhaps, a very powerful album, I could listen to Echoes over, and over again. When I first got the album, I played it three and four times a day, without skipping songs.

    Pink Floyd First in Space?

    Meddle is possibly one of the best but unfortunatly the least known about Floyd albums. Ask anyone, do you like the Floyd?, and they go, sure , the wall was good or Darkside, but few have really experienced the wander that is meddle. The fact is that it is a contribution from all the band! One thing that escapes me is the Idea that Echo's is about space travel, huh! I mean how many albatrosses do you see in out of space? It seems to me that what the Floyd where actually singing about was some Primeaval Tropical Paradise, the Galapacus Islands for instance or ther seychelles. '' And deep beneath the rolling waves in laberyinths of Coral caves'', not astaroids! ''And somtehing starts to climb towards the light'' An iguana perhaps? '' A Millian bright ambassaders of morning'' Perhaps a swarm of Blue footed boobies, or thoes Albatrosses again! The fact is it doesnt matter what it is a bout, its just bloody brilliant, on par with shine on, I would say. Complete with Gilmours wispfull Vocals & Masons cascading drums, Echos is a real Floydian Treat! If you Like the Floyd Just bye it! In fact bye em all cause there all bloody marvelous!

    It's True: The Floyd's Best!

    Yes, there's Dark Side. Yes, there's the Wall. Yes, there's Piper. But this is simply one of their best-ever. From the opening surges of ''One of These Days'' to the mind-blowing ''Echoes,'' there's nary a dull moment on this album. ''A Pillow of Winds'' and ''Fearless'' are two vastly underrated songs, and the latter ranks as one of their all-time best, IMO. Despite criticism, I personally enjoy ''Seamus'' and ''San Tropez.'' Please, do yourself a favor and pick up Meddle. You will not be disappointed.
