Simply outstanding. This is your go-to pressing. Bernie Grundman, Guthrie & Plant have nailed this remaster - in addition the entire Floyd back catalogue. There is no need to pay outrageous prices for original copies - these remasters / pressings surpass the originals, and are all you’ll ever need.

Decent sound for a modern digital transfer but lacks the magic of the original. This press is rather flat and lifeless in comparison. High frequencies seem to be rolled off.

Good pressing, sounds great, nice soundstage, detail and dynamics. However, I still prefer the original pressings. This one is a bit too bright (and by bright I do not mean "detailed", I mean an over-emphasis on treble), it doesn't have enough of that fat, moody sound which I feel suited the material better.

Fantastic! Clean, flat and flawless pressing. Dynamic with a nice wide sound stage. It has a full, warm, rich and expansive sound. I got mine from Amazon. This one was done right!

Anyone else have a misprint of this EU version? Mine has side 1 label on both sides. Music is correct though. Sonics are stunning!

Nothing more needs to be said about these 2016 reissues. They are all great and Meddle is no exception. Can it even sound better than this? While it might not be my favorite album of Pink Floyd it is on a technical level flawless as I see it.

Comparing with my UK original:
With a pristine UK original copy I feel justified in comparing with the 2016 Grundman reissue
I mostly went back and forth with what I feel are the most revealing tracks, Fearless and San Tropez.
To start with the UK, I observed that it has a lot less deadwax, making more room for dynamics to breathe. But in actuality this difference is very minimal and might not even matter as the reissue is just cut quieter to compensate, which it also can with its quiet vinyl. Finding an equally spotless Harvest is hard even though mine is.
This does however give the UK an edge in some harmonic detail. But speaking of edge it also has a somewhat more harsh sound to it. Grundmans cut is actually smoother and easier listened. By employing better mastering tricks it solves problems like sibilant S's which can be annoying on the original, as well as leaving less possibilities for lesser gear to mistrack closer to the label (IGD). And amazingly very little in terms of quality is lost here by effectively choosing what important aspects to highlight for the listeners pleasure like lessening some bass but still matching it in places where its needed and able to shine.
In the end its a preference choice only and I feel both are winners, just like with WYWH and Animals that Ive also compared so far.

Great pressing, dead quiet (no clicks, distortion, etc.), super dynamic, highly recommended.

I fully support the previous reviews of music lovers. Also this album is not one of my favorites, but the sound quality is amazing. Good detailing, deep pleasant bass. Definitely recommend for the collection.

I agree that this is a wonderful pressing, full, warm, deep and wide soundstage, dead silent and extremely detailed..this last batch of Pink Floyd remasters are fantastic and we don't have to pay an arm and a leg to get great sonics. I haven't heard the mo-fi version, but I can't see it being hundreds of $$ better sounding, and I am a real mo-fi fan, who will usually pay the extra, but not in this case. This is an excellent pressing.
