PINK FLOYD : MEDDLE

Pink Floyd’s sixth album was their breakthrough record in many ways. Many PF fans believe the end started with the earlier departure of Syd Barrett, but this next line up created some great art rock, including this surreal soundscape. The cover photograph portrayed a close-up of an ear underwater.

This album was the result of the band’s experimentation and no clear direction – and it’s perfect. UK Harvest -1 matrix LPs rule, as do the original Japanese CDs. Sorry, the recent Immersion reissue just doesn’t cut it. Happy 40th anniversary Meddle, and Happy Halloween.
