PINK FLOYD - Meddle [1971]

After the departure of Syd Barrett, Pink Floyd released a series of great, but directionless, albums. Everything changed in 1971.
1971's Meddle showcases Floyd's new songwriting maturity with a strong sense of purpose and confidence. Instead of allowing the atmospherics to lead the music, they finally learn it's best to allow the music itself to be put in the foreground and the effects to merely compliment the compositions.
If you're looking for pre-Dark Side Floyd then this masterpiece and The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn are the best places to start.
