Pink Floyd - Meddle: A Classic Album Under Review
Description & Features+
This "independent critical analysis" is actually a terrific exploration of the Meddle album by Pink Floyd as well as a look into the music they created at this point in time -- Atom Heart Mother, the soundtrack to Zabriskie Point, even a discussion of some of their contemporaries like King Crimson. It's almost up there with the "Classic Albums" DVD review of Electric Ladyland by the Jimi Hendrix Experience since the people behind the documentary include comments from former Floyd producer Norman Smith, Pete Banks from the group Yes, Hugh Hopper from the Soft Machine who they list as a 1960s Pink Floyd touring partner and some critics from a variety of media. Meddle is an album that has had to stand in the shadow of more popular work by Pink Floyd and this is a very well written and executed study of this quirky and essential band and their pre-Dark Side of the Moon compositions. The bonus of "The Remarkable Roger Barrett" is actually a nice memorial to Syd Barrett while the contributors get their own text pages of bio information which they deserve. Pink Floyd may be as overexposed as U2, but this study is far superior to the double-disc U2 Collectors Box which drones on about nothing -- here the people involved really seem to care about the subject matter. They aren't cashing in as much as adding to the legend and putting a focus on some music that deserves more classic rock airplay as well as more attention from the fan base. There is real insight on the album given here and it will hold your attention. Well done. ~ Joe Viglione, Rovi
