That's probably true. It's a bit pedantic but all I mean is, if you split the band into eras, Meddle to me feel like it should be part of that big Dark Side, WYWH etc run. Echoes should run right into Dark Side. Only it doesn't because Obscured By Clouds is there, which (to me anyway) sounds like it belongs back with More and all that stuff.
Because of that we end up talking about pre-Dark Side when without that album we'd probably talk about pre-Meddle.
I do actually like Obscured By Clouds quite a bit, even if I can't remember how any of the songs go as soon as it's over.
I only found out recently Nick Mason now spends his days touring a band that exclusively plays pre-Dark Side stuff, which is cool.
