"Wonderful. A trip through the clouds of time, realizing that everything we've ever known exists with the same importance as the present and we are the living body of all times together at once, and probably the future too. If we meditate on it long enough perhaps we'll slip in to the eternal, and exist there in a spherical time instead of the silly notion that time is linear." ~Some thoughts that came to my head while relishing the memories.
This is such a wonderful collection, and so well compiled. I... Love... Pink Floyd, and this is a stellar item. This is a great place to start with Pink Floyd, and also a treasure for old fans. I have all their albums, grew up with their music, and I love this arrangement of audio poetry, even though it misses the soft little early numbers, which can be had on Relics, and Atom Heart Mother instead. This showcases Pink Floyd's power and just bowls me over. And the track Echoes itself is even better presented here, than on Meddle.
I love how it starts at the beginning of their career, melding thoughts through the many subjects PF have explored and the various epochs of their career, winding down with memories of Syd, the last single High Hopes, then full circle back to Syd's Bike, like re-incarnation. Pink Floyd have created something that lasts forever. Echoes is like a scrapbook. And they are justly proud of their body of work. Listeing to this collection is like sharing in that pride.
In my opinion, the only things as good nowadays are are Radiohead and Dead Can Dance. U2? Pah! Coldplay? You've got to be kidding!
