About this album

Meddle is a classic Pink Floyd album recorded and released in 1971, which contains Echoes, one of their longest compositions. A few tibits of information about this album: The song “Echoes” was the entire side B of Meddle. “Echoes” was also featured on the Pink Floyd feature length, crowd-less show video, titled “Live at Pompeii”

The lyrics of the song “One Of These Days” has only one sentence and it was spoken as opposed to being sung. That Line was : “One of these days I am going to cut you up into little pieces” .

The song “Seamus” was used as the opening credits music for the independent Film “Rosencrantz And Guilenstern Are Dead”, starring Gary Oldman and Tim Roth. This fictional film was based on the 1970’s play of the same title.

In the song San Tropez, there is a reference to eating a peach on a sofa and playing a particularly favorite guitar of Roger Waters, a Gibson Country Style.

    Dear classic rock/die-hard Floyd fans...I wanted to comment on why Meddle has never had the same regard as Dark/Wish/Wall. It's the same reason Revolver is not Sgt. Pepper... Song for America is not Leftoverture...etc. Very often fans become fans upon release of a band's Magnum Opus, thus the band starts (for that fan) at that point in time. Rapidly evolving bands had to evolve from something - and that something is more often than not the one or two LPs that preceded the big blow-out public breakthrough. There are bits and pieces of Dark/Wish/Wall throughout Meddle. Hindsight is always 20-20 so it's very easy to see that now. In 1971, we all had no idea what was to come. Hardcore Floyd fans probably saw Meddle as a quantum leap forward - but I did not discover it until after Dark Side of the Moon - so my take on it is much different. My take is OH... THAT's where the Gilmour/Wright harmonies were developed... I'm out of characters, I hope this makes sense

    Simply amazing, so underrated - incredibly calming and simple, yet very complex. [4]

    @cap_surgeon Well, it's a matter of relative popularity, I'd say. To many music fans, even some who might describe themselves as "big Pink Floyd fans," Pink Floyd is basically The Dark Side of the Moon/Wish You Were Here/The Wall. You'd be surprised how many people fall into this category and have little to no awareness of the existence of this album, Animals, The Final Cut, etc. So perhaps compared to something like, I dunno, Octopus by Gentle Giant it's not "underrated" or "unknown," but within Pink Floyd's discography it isn't frequently held in the same regard by fans or critics as the three LPs I mentioned before. At any rate, it's a great album and one that I count among my favorites.

    'Dark Side' and 'Wish' are obviously undisputed masterpieces. But out of those two, this is my favourite.

    Critics have been coming around to it the past several years but yes, this one deserves to be talked about among their best work. I really like "Fearless" a lot.
