Pink Floyd Echoes  Review

Echoes review

Pink Floyd's double disc greatest hits collection includes music from their entire career. The sequence is random rather than chronological which is a drawback to the flow. However, the selection of songs is outstanding. Echoes works well as an orientation to Pink Floyd, for a casual fan.

For a more serious Pink Floyd fan, Echoes can serve as a foundation of a collection while filling in gaps with your favorite albums. However Pink Floyds best albums of the 1970's are stories with music that flow together from from the beginning of the album till the end, with many songs simply serving as transitions. And just taking a few great tracks from one of those albums is not a substitute. Barry Small
