4 stars The task of wrapping up the best songs by a proggresive rock band who have been going strong for over 20 years seems like an impossible task, but once again pink floyd have pulled it off. The only downside is that there are too many of the new tracks that dont even feature the whole band lineup and the album misses out crucial songs from Ummagumma and Atom Heart Mother. Still this album contains the classics, although some songs had to be edited down because of their length they still manage to be appealing.

The good thing about this album is that it is brilliant for beginners and will make them want to get more of the bands albums, but for those who are already hardcore fans, the compilation flows wonderfully and it is brilliant to see all the classics of the last 20 years all in one package. I think this album is just as good as Relics which is a favourite by pink floyd fans and is walks all over the poor "A Collection of Great Dance Songs" and "Works". The inclusion the wall film single "When the Tigers Broke Free" is also good to see here and a real fan pleaser. Overall Echoes does the job and it is a beautiful reminder of how inspirational and unique this band were.
