4 stars One of these days, I am going to cut you into tiny pieces...

What a good album. I am not saying that as if it were superior to other PF catalog work, rather, as if I feel it is a bit surprising to hear something so good right before DSOTM.

The songs favor a very watery feel, and each song is something different. Except for the jug band blues of Seamus and San Tropez. Those two tracks I feel dampen the overall flow of the album more than they should have been allowed to. One of these days is a powerful rock psychedelic attack, leading into A Pillow of Winds, which is very floaty and atmospheric. A Pink Floyd love song? Ahaha, perhaps not, but solid nonetheless. You then have Fearless, which is a good enough track, followed by the two tracks I particularly don't care for.

And then there is Echoes. What a slice of brilliance. Pure space rock, pure experimentation, pure atmosphere. One of the ultimate psychedelic space rock statements. It flows so vividly. Utilizing skillful lyrics and a feel that is as if the entire earth were drowning. The haunting vocals, the instrumental sections, the dolphin sequence which is hair raising. An absolute highlight in the Pink Floyd musical collection, and this album should be obtained for this track, alone.

In the end, I shall award this album fours tars. It has some strong (very strong) moments, but are dragged down by A couple songs and segments that drag the flow of the album. Recommended!
