This one will be interesting. I really love both, and I believe this are the two songs that can really make a competition to the immortals "Close to the Edge" and "Supper's Ready".

Both great, but Starless for me. Echoes doesn't hit me emotionally like Starless.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

"Echoes" is really great, but there's something about "Starless". It's at least better lyrically and the same guitar notes in the solo are more atmospheric than Gilmour's pleasurable solo.

Both are great. 2 masterpiece from 2 Giants. I pick "Starless" because its changing from start to end. "Echoes" back to start of song but Starless back to start "Melody" with different instrument and arrangement.

Both great pieces, but "Echoes" is magical.

Echoes.
...a vigorous circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this area, but destined
to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

Starless, among the best songs ever recorded. I really don't hear what's so great about Echoes.
