4 stars Similar to 'Atom Heart Mother' only far more accomplished this time around and Pink Floyd would continue this style for the next ten years; long, grandiose and moody compositions (see "Echoes") and strong songwriting in general. The first half of the album might not be among the band's strongest material but more than good enough for musical pleasure, with the haunting "One of These Days" being a standout and sets the tone for the album perfectly. "Echoes" is a long and cold underwater journey that still send shivers down my spine when I hear it and is Floyd's first truly successful epic musically, displaying great dynamics and once again brilliant writing. At 23 minutes it's never boring either and the creepy midsection really adds to the piece. Excellent album overall, worthy for any PF fan or newcomer.
