5 stars For me this is the best Floyd album before "Dark Side of the Moon". They were making the music much more complex and longer. This one at the time was there most progressive yet. The first song I ever heard on here was "One of These Days". I heard it on the concert dvd, Pulse. I love this song. Roger Waters and David Gilmour both play bass on here and Richard Wright and Nick Mason do great work here. Nick Mason also has "vocals" on here by saying the short line in the middle of the song. "A pillow of winds" is a nice song sung by David. But I think the next one stands out more. "Fearless" is a great song with strong guitar work and vocals by David. Roger then takes over with singing with "San Tropez". A nice and strangely cheerful song by Roger. The next song I find kind of odd, but it's nice. "Seamus" sung by David and a dog! But the best from this album is the final song. For me I think this is best long-track ever, a masterpiece of progressive rock, ECHOES. I could listen to this song over and over and it will only get better. The first time I heard this is when I bought the Pompeii dvd, which is the best version of it. The album version is great to, but it just doesn't have that feel to it like the live one does. Echoes is just one of those songs that relaxes you. It's slow and calm but also it has fast blues sections. The opening note is perfect. This is also the song that reveales how great David's and Rick's voices blend together. I don't know if Roger wrote all the lyrics or what but they are perfect as well as the music. This song has great sections. First is the nice slow sound, then the great guitar solo. That leads to a jazzy groove sound which is taken over by the sound of the unusual sound made by David's guitar. It ends with same music that it start's with. It's the best 23:27 worth of music ever made. David played this song on his "On an Island" tour. You can see it on the Royal Albert Hall concert, which is incredible. This albuml is a true masterpiece.
