Pink Floyd – Meddle – 180 Gram Vinyl Record
Meddle is the sixth studio album by the legendary English rock band Pink Floyd, released in 1971. This album is often regarded as a transitional work in the band’s discography, bridging the gap between their earlier psychedelic sound and the progressive rock style that would define their later work.
Key tracks from Meddle include “One of These Days,” “Fearless,” “San Tropez,” and the epic 23-minute-long “Echoes.” “Echoes” is particularly notable for its progressive and atmospheric qualities, featuring extended instrumental passages and intricate soundscapes.
Meddle marked a departure from some of Pink Floyd’s earlier, more whimsical and experimental work, moving towards a more cohesive and structured sound. It served as a precursor to the band’s monumental albums like “The Dark Side of the Moon” and “Wish You Were Here,” which would solidify their status as one of the most influential and innovative rock bands in history.
The album’s cover art, designed by Storm Thorgerson of the Hipgnosis art collective, features a close-up photograph of an ear underwater, symbolizing the concept of sound and the exploration of auditory landscapes explored on the record.
Meddle is recognized as a classic in the progressive rock genre and is celebrated for its musical exploration and innovation. It showcases Pink Floyd’s ability to create immersive and experimental compositions, setting the stage for their groundbreaking work in the years that followed.
