4 stars 'One of These Days', 'A Pillow of Winds', 'Fearless' and the epic 'Echoes' are undisputedly 5 star songs, but, overall, the album only deserves 4, due to the vomit inducing 'San Tropez' and 'Seamus', which get a rating of 0 stars. They are so terrible, in fact, I have acquired a reflex to skip them before they start.

'One of These Days' is one of my favourite Floyd tracks, as it has a menace, emphasised by the wind in the background, absent from a lot of their other work. The real jamming begins after the famous line "One of these days, I'm going to cut you into little pieces." I quite like 'A Pillow of Winds', but some may find it slightly boring, as it veers away from the usual heavy beated, 'raw rock' Floyd we know and love. 'Fearless' is a really nice track, with some good lyrics and a good beat, although the last minute is wasted on the (quite stupid) Wembley chant.

Now it's time to get the bucket, as even writing about these next two songs make me want to heave. They really are an embarrassment in the Floyd song-list... (in my opinion). Now, 'Echoes' really is one for the history books, being one my favourite tracks of time. Enough has already been said and I have disdained 'San Tropez' and 'Seamus' enough.

Shouldn't be missed by any Prog-fan, even if just for 'Echoes'.
