Meddle was released by Pink Floyd in 1971, Capitol Records catalog number CDP 7 46034 2. Meddle ranges from pleasant vocal tunes to the full-on electronic space composition of Echoes. These extremes showcase the Floyd's styles beautifully. Gilmour's haunting guitar work takes center stage supporting the melody on Pillow of Winds and Fearless, as well as in the layered guitar effects on Echoes. San Tropez and Seamus both have a folk-song kind of feel to them, and stand out as departures from the flying electronic standard of the rest of the album. Echoes is a monumental composition. With several styles and transitions, it ranges from psychedelia to proto-prog rock in an amazing 23 minutes. The sound quality throughout is clean, in all aspects. Masterful production allows all instrumental and vocal tracks to be heard with lovely separation and depth. Meddle is a solid piece of work, and holds up well, lo these thirty years since its debut.
