The album had a rather long gestation, it was in fact recorded several times between January and August 1971, before being released on October 31st in the USA and November 5th in Great Britain; unlike "Atom", it was not very successful in the United States, where for obscure reasons it was very little advertised. Better he went to his homeland and to Europe.
In short, "Meddle" is a masterpiece, albeit a bit fluctuating between an almost disengaged first part and the second with "Echoes" that overwhelms everything else, which perhaps pays for the misfortune of being squeezed between two big pieces by Pink Floyd: on the one hand the renegade "Atom Heart Mother", on the other "The Dark Side of the Moon", who would arrive shortly thereafter, drastically changing the cards on the table.
Having said that, it is imperative to note that the record fully enjoys its dignity; for some it is worthy of being on par with the great masterpieces of the band and "Echoes" is perhaps their best suite and their highest progressive achievement.
But it's time to put this masterpiece on the plate and understand how it sounds.
