Product Description

Amazon.ca

For all that menacing, hatchet-happy growl at the beginning of Meddle's opener, "One of These Days," Pink Floyd really weren't about to "cut you into little pieces." Meddle did, however, show that the reigning British monarchs of 1970s-era psychedelia could rip into galloping jams. It also showed what its predecessor, Atom Heart Mother, promised--that the band could excel in long, breathtaking suites that revealed strains of late-classical music, Sun Ra-inspired space explorations, and a patchwork approach to colliding sounds that together took on acid-drenched proportions. And if all that isn't enough, "San Tropez" revealed a playful side of the band, playing footsy with loungy jazz and having good fun in the process. --Andrew Bartlett

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect serenity Oct. 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
Here's a track by track breakdown:
One of These Days: A nice bouncing bass line, Dr. Who Synth lines, and wicked lyrics make this one a 5/5
Pillow Of Winds: A sentimental favorite of mine, and of the prettiest songs ever. Listening to this reminds one of a falling feather. 5/5
Fearless: Amazing!!! Life Changer!!! Holy moly!!! The accoustic guitar is so clear and perfect and the singing is so amazing!! It's so well thought out and delivered with a level of sensitivity that is only achieved by the greats.This one is written from deep within. 5/5
San Topez: Catchy song. One that you may not like at first but just you wait you'll find that you'll have "As I reach for a peach...' stuck in your head. 4/5
Seamus: Seamus is pronounced Shamus. It's kind of like Sean/Shawn. On this one Floyd plays some deep blues with a real dog adding a nice effect. Not a life changing song, but short and pleasant. 4/5
Echoes: Pure genius!!! This song foreshadowed some of the greater themes to come on Dark Side of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, and so on. This song is a well orchestraded psychadelic masterpiece. 5/5
Final note, the genius of Fearless and Echoes makes up for any blemishes (as tiny as they are) that this album may have. This album is up there with the greatest albums ever made in my opinion and should be a part of any serious CD collection for a fan of rock music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nearly Symphonic Magnum Opus Aug. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
Before The Wall, before Dark Side of the Moon, Pink Floyd created a very different kind of masterpiece. While their later albums were a triumph of concept, it is on Meddle where one can hear the *musical* peak of Pink Floyd's career. This is not a concept album--it is a musical journey showing off a variety of musical styles. The lyrics do not demand--they suggest, and allow the music to do the rest of the talking. Perhaps the most wonderful thing about Meddle is the fact that the band was truly functioning as a *band* here. Everyone's talents can be clearly heard, and no one shouts anybody else down.
There is no such thing as filler, on Meddle. Bookended by the mindblowing tracks "One of These Days" and "Echoes", the four "interior" tracks are severely underrated. "A Pillow of Winds" and "Fearless" are both pleasant, leisurely guitar-driven songs, and seem fairly well appreciated by fans. However, I believe that the much-maligned "San Tropez" and "Seamus" are also deserving of appreciation. "San Tropez" is particularly notable for some very unique Roger Waters vocals--rather optimistic and even a touch bluesy...a style he unfortunately never pursued after that point. "Seamus" gives a rare glimpse of the fun side of Pink Floyd, as well as a flashback to the band's origins as a blues cover band. This was never a song meant to be taken so seriously as some do. "One of These Days" is an explosive, energetic instrumental that perhaps foreshadows the angry, driven rock of Animals, but with only one lyric--a rare appearance by Nick Mason, whose processed vocals growl menacingly, "One of these days, I'm going to cut you into little pieces!

5.0 out of 5 stars Echoes March 22 2008
Format:Audio CD
The extravagant piece, Echoes, remains brilliant to this day because it stretches the listening ear and imagination of the listener. The opening riff and subsequent lyrics soon explode into a totally mind-expanding, improvisational set that is totally absorbing and slightly unsettling. Then the piece gradually returns to a more melodic sound and the listener is set gently down on the ground to the sound of the original echo. To this day I have never heard such a brilliant piece of "rock" music, and when I first heard it in 1970 it was THE radical sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the all-time timeless great albums March 20 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I could listen to this album all day, and I often do!! It's seamless, timeless, and ethereal music will get you through that rough day at work without a hitch! LOVE IT! This and "Wish You Were Here" are my two all-time fav Pink Floyd albums. I saw them several times in concert in my youth (those darn YUTS!@) and wow, if only we could turn back time..........buy this one, you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it immediately, if not sooner Dec 22 2002
Format:Audio CD
Do you ever wonder what it would feel like to experience sonic perfection? I don't either...but if such a thing existed, this would be it. The album's highlight is the 23-minute "Echoes," considered by many to be the band's crowning achievement. Somehow, the song is able to keep your attention for the full duration...even though it's mostly instrumental. Also on this album are the (absolutely hilarious!) track "Seamus," about a dog who would howl when he heard blues music, and the hard-hitting "One Of These Days," in which Nick Mason's growling vocals make you wonder if you're in danger of being chopped "into little pieces." If you don't own this album, I must apologize profusely for not asking you to buy it sooner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Experimental Floyd July 11 2004
By David
Format:Audio CD
I wouldn't recommend getting this as your first Floyd album just cause it might throw you off track. This is a great CD but not quite up to par with Dark Side or maybe Wish you were Here. But the closer "echoes" makes it a close call. It is an astonishing 23 minutes of great lyrics, musicianship and interesting soundscapes and moods. Another highlight is the sleepy "A Pillow of Winds" and "Fearless". Hell, every song on the album is great except for Seamus, which seems a little out of place.
But If you're a Floyd fan and dont own this album, do yourself a favor and buy it NOW.

4.0 out of 5 stars I rate this cd 4 and a half stars
Meddle is an amazing cd. The cd starts of with a wonderful instrumental called ONE OF THESE DAYS. After the intense song it goes down to a softer song with A PILLOW OF WINDS. Read more
