Biography

In the early 1960s, a bunch of boys from Cambridge began jamming together, and out of those encounters were born the early incarnations of Pink Floyd. More than 40 years and 150 million album sales later, the band headlined the biggest global music event in history – Live 8 – and was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. You could say the Floyd has staying power.

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

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

First I bought this album on 8-track (that would have been about 1972 or 73), then LP, then cassette, now CD. I must like it. First time I heard it my friend Kathy grabbed me by the elbow as I walked past her room and said stand there, in the fireplace, between the speakers and listen to this. It was "One of These Days". It was loud enough to cause brain damage. I'm still a bit deaf and never came out of the altered state. It was just (excuse the expression) mind-blowing. We were too primitive back then to own a set of head phones so the experience of the jet of sound squirting right through the middle of my head, from one ear to the other then back again, was like a new revelation - the sort of thing that hippies were guzzling all sorts of expensive substances in order to achieve. Then some creep said he was going to cut me into little pieces. Unusual lyrics too and a far from sensual singing voice, as befits a psycho. Never heard the like before!
"One of These Days" was enough on its own to sell the album to me. But every number was a shiny gem (varying degrees of brightness). It's been a star in my music collection for 3 decades. It's music like this that slows the onset of old age (or at least maturity in my case). Even my dogs like it. One of them likes to howl along with Seamus.
This is special. If you haven't heard it, you should seek it out and discover that it's something you wouldn't have wanted to miss.

4.0 out of 5 stars "...I'll Climb That Hill In My Own Way..." 27 Sep 2011
By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2011 VERSION ***

I've just come from reviewing the 2011 remaster of Pink Floyd's "Obscured By Clouds" (the album that followed "Meddle" in June 1972) - which is sonically amazing - but is also disappointingly skimpy on the packaging front (a miniscule 8-page booklet). It's pretty much an identical story here. But to the details first...

Released 30 October 1971 on Harvest Records SMAS-832 in the USA and 13 November 1971 in the UK on Harvest Records SHVL 795 - original UK copies of the vinyl LP came in an untitled textured gatefold sleeve. American issues were titled and featured reversed artwork on a hard-card sleeve - the back of the UK cover put on the front. This 26 September 2011 version (27 Sep 2011 in the USA) on EMI 50999 028942 2 5 is a straightforward 6-track remaster of that studio album and comes in a gatefold card sleeve (using UK artwork) with a 12-page colour inlay inside (total playing time 48:51 minutes).

Like all the other albums in this 14-title reissue series - "Meddle" has been mastered by JAMES GUTHRIE and JOEL PLANTE at the Das Boot Recording Studios in Tahoe in California (Guthrie is a Sound Engineer associated with the band since 1978). The original 1st generation master tapes have obviously been given a thorough going over because it truly feels like each song has had a staggering amount of time spent on them worrying out every single nuance possible. The audio result is truly impressive.

On the 1995 remaster the six-minute opener "One Of These Days" took ages to arrive and even when it did it was somehow dull and lacklustre.

5.0 out of 5 stars A ground-breaking and breath-taking album 14 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the last Floyd album written before those which were based on alienation and struggle. In comparison it has a joyful feeling overall.
The first half has a diverse selection of pieces: One of These Days is very brooding, A Pillow of Winds is quite light and refreshing, San Tropez is very laid back, Fearless is invigorating (especially for Liverpool fans) and Seamus is just a bit of fun.
The second half consists of the superb Echoes, a rock symphony that leads us enchantingly from the sub-marine to the sublime. Bathe in its deep, warm ambience and drift away! This is their first and arguably their best masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Replaced after, almost, 40 years 19 July 2013
By Dave M TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I friend of mine bought Dark Side of the Moon, it was great and, as a result, I bought this as my first ever real LP (having had things like "Music for Pleasure" before then, if you remember that).

The original LP has long since warped, but I still have and treasure it, but the music just had to be replaced.

Enough of the personal reminiscences, now a review of the album.

This is absolutely classic Pink Floyd; the opening track, One of these days, is still one of my all time Floyd favourites, couple this with the full 22 minutes of Echos (the old side 2) and this is a winner. The other tracks are just icing on the cake.

You may have guessed that this is biased review from someone who has enjoyed seeing them time after time from the original Dark Side of the Moon tour and has bought each of their 'main' albums.

Buy it, it is vital to your collection !

4.0 out of 5 stars One of My Favourite Floyd Albums 9 May 2014
By Mr. Peter Steward TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Sometimes memories can deceive. Whilst people were singing the praises of Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here I always viewed Meddle as my favourite Floyd album. That was due as much to the sands of time as the music - in other words I remembered it from an era that held particularly happy memories for me. So how would it sit when I returned to it for the first time in many years?

The tone of the album is set by the opening track - one of those that starts so quietly you wonder whether there is something wrong with the computer or the stereo. Then it gives way to one of those rollicking instrumental passages that hurtle along, gathering pace as it goes and giving way to real rock riffs and occasional caveman like grunts. It all gives way to another piece of Dave Gilmour/Roger Water's whimsy in the quietly beautiful A Pillow of Winds - the kind of soothing music that became something of a signature for the band. Fearless is a rather throwaway song that for some strange reason ends with the Anfield football choir singing "You'll Never Walk Alone." San Tropaz sounds as if it could come from the Syd Barrett era and Seamus is a silly blues song complete with dogs howling.

Which just leaves us with Echoes - another magnum opus of 23 minutes plus. In true Floyd style it starts quietly and then builds with some lovely melodic vocals. Overall I would describe Meddle as a very low key harmonius album with a distinctive feeling of peace about it - some outstanding music, some more throwaway. Returning to it is like meeting an old friend, although over the years it may have lost some of its power it's still a fair achievement.
