5 stars After making 2 experimental albums, Pink Floyd decided to make a style of music that would be their trademark for the next 10 years. And this is the album that would start a long reign of glorious music.have

This album still had a long way to go, if it was going to achieve the monumental status of Dark Side Of The Moon. The songs were alot more catchier, the music was alot more memorable and made more sense.

It's hard to think that this album was made in 1971.

1. One Of These Days - An amazing instrumental with a jaunty bassline and amazing keyboard effects. The death metal vocals (proabbly one of the first, next to Boris The Spider) is amazing. Great musicianship being presented.

2. A Pillow Of Winds - Quite country inspired (but it's not terrible, like most country is). Very soothing and amazingly beautiful.

3. Fearless - One of their most cathchiest moments. Very catchy and incredibly memorable. The ending is quite weird, because it is football related, and me and football have our differences.

4. San Tropez - A very blues orientated song with some humouros lyrics.

5. Seamus - "Roger, do you want to provide some backing vocals..." "nah just get the dog." This quote sums ups this song perfectly.

6. Echoes - One of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard in my life. An amazing use of sonar and incredbily beautiful lyrics and melodies. I have a bone to pick with Andrew Lloyd Webber, becuase the riff in the chorus is almost indentical to the riff in Phantom Of The Opera (the again, he did rip of Dvorak's New World Symphony for Music Of The Night.) The instrumental passage is incredibly wondorous.

CONCLUSION: The start of an amazing string of albums. But it, and the rest of them (well up to The Wall at least).
