5 stars I picked this album up because of the praise I had read regarding the epic track "Echoes," expecting to be blown away. Echoes certainly lived up to the hype surrounding it, and I'm glad that I picked this album up solely for that track. I find myself playing "Echoes" more than nearly any other song on this album, and to anyone who has managed to go without hearing this album, I'd recommend getting it solely for that track.

However, there are still 5 other songs on this album, and some of them certainly merit attention. Opener "One of These Days" manages to be catchy and have a really nice buildup. The following song, "Pillow of Winds," also manages to weave nice melodies in a fairly hypnotic and peaceful track. Over time, I've come to actually appreciate Fearless as well. San Tropez, for what it's worth, also does not detract much from the quality of the album. The only track that really does is Seamus, but because it's only a little over 2 minutes and not very relevant in the grand scheme, I'm going to just mostly dismiss it.

Because some of the tracks on here are clearly essential Pink Floyd and the whole experience is fairly pleasant, I've come to the conclusion that rounded up this is a 5 star album.
