The most underrated album I know. Meddle is an absolutely amazing album that is sadly overshadowed by TDSOTM. One Of These Days still remains as one of my most favorite opening tracks to an album ever. Fearless and San Tropez are very simple and pretty tracks that are a nice break from Pink Floyd's more experimental music. And where do I even begin with Echoes? This 23 minute long epic is full of amazing guitar work, surreal lyrics and amazing prog rock sounds. Meddle is some of the Floyd's best work and it needs more attention. (I do also enjoy Seamus)

This is an amazing prog album. Echoes is a masterclass of progressive rock from the opening sampled piano key which sounds like a submarine sonar to the amazing David Gilmour guitar soloing. The one track lets the album down is the dreaded seamus. Were the guys really so stuck for ideas that they had to have a bloody dog howling along to some pretty lousy acoustic blues? This track, totally should not have made it to an album!

Severely underrated. My third favorite Pink Floyd album. Much better than DSOM in my opinion. Echoes is my favorite Pink Floyd song. People hate on Seamus too much

In my mind, this should be included with DSOTM, WYWH, Animals, and The Wall as another perfect album made by Pink Floyd. Yes, Echoes is far and away the best song on here but it'd be a disservice not to mention Fearless and One of These Days. Seamus gets some hate on here but even that song is perfectly placed in the album to give listeners a chance to catch their breath before jumping into Echoes.

It is fairly well documented that this is Pink Floyd's transition album from the psychedelic pop of Syd Barrett's era into the progressive rock outings led (initially, at least) by Roger Waters. For that reason, I feel it is unfair to dismiss tracks such as San Tropez and Seamus - had they appeared, slightly less polished, on previous albums, they would be held up as classics. The clash of the old and new styles works as much as any arcane concept. Having a side-long piece took off in the realm of prog, but Pink Floyd really nailed it here with the unsettling mid-section giving way to the beautiful and uplifting themes once more for the finale. An excellent album.

Seamus has actually aged quite well thanks to the digital age. Without the need to switch to side B, it becomes a lighthearted, fun venture before the all-powerful "PING!" of Echoes hits your ears like a sledgehammer.

Fearless and Echoes are up there as two of Pink Floyd's best songs. There isn't much I can say about Echoes that hasn't already been said, but the outro to Fearless is a stroke of genius and I'd love to see it played live.

If "echoes" isn't epic I don't know what else It can be. "Fearless" is a disturbungly underrated song from Pink Floyd, easily one of their best.

I think that this album is highly underrated. I understand the lack of concept and that some people don't enjoy the flow of the album but I personally think it is genius. The variety of songs completes the album. Starts off like most Floyd albums do, and then transitions to songs like San Tropez and Seamus which are awesome songs that lighten the mood, and then it ends with Echoes, which is one of Pink Floyd's greatest songs.

So, overall this is one of my favorite Floyd albums and I do believe that it is highly underrated.

The Problem with this Album is the lack of concept. Not that an album always has to be a concept album, but these are just some tunes weirdly mashed together. And Seamus is a horrible track. Fearless is really good, but it gets ruined (for me) by the "Football Stadium singing".

But die the good part:

One of these Days lets my two whovian Hearts beat.
San Tropez is a lovely song (although it doesn't really fit in, like I mentioned before)

And Echoes is one of the greateat masterpieces ever. But the middle part is a bit too experental and unpleasent for my taste.


PS: For a long time I thought the cover showed an abstract Image of a camel. Turns out it is an ear underwater. Turn the cover 90° clockwise ;)
