3 stars I wasn't very convinced by this album. I guess it has signs of their imaginative 1960's era changing towards to the more calculated 1970's sounds. The weight on the scale seems to be shifting towards more coherent messages dominating their forthcoming "Dark Side of The Moon" era, but there are still great moments on this record certainly. Long main suite "Echoes" has a beautiful Lloyd Webber reminding theme and a long bluesy instrumental part. The album opener "One of These Days" is also a good song, playing with echoed bass pulses, backward driven effects and things which might cut you to small pieces (Eugene?). Otherwise I found this album quite boring to listen, "Seamus" even managing to annoy me a bit. Also I first liked the covers of this album quite much, as I thought it being abstract design. As I realized what the gatefold is actually representing, the picture it didn't please me anymore as I probably had an association of earwax from it. Relates to the "Echoes" and sound pulses very well though. Also the band portrait within the inner sleeve is quite cool.
