I can see how DSOTM can be called bland though since its really sad sounding and slow in a lot of parts like Great Gig in the Sky and Us and Them and On the Run and they last for like half of each side of the album. I can really get into those parts though but I still prefer Wish You Were Here as an album.
I call it bland because every song has that same "hippie rock" feel to it, not that isn't good, it just gets boring after hearing it for 20 mins, whilst albums liek Meddle cover a more vareity of music topics that don't sounds like each other.
One Of These Days ( Hard Progressive Psychedelic Rock)
A Pillow of Winds and Fearless (Don't really know how to describe these but they sound different but yet keep the progressive beat going through One Of These Days with the wind fade in/out.)
San Tropez ( Jazz Pop )
Seamus ( Blues and Jazz Pop)
Echoes ( Psychedelic ocean airey build up, smooth guitar solos, funk rock, psychedelic creepy rock, Drum Bass and Synth Build up, then it goes back to the psychedelic ocean airey feeling)
