From mjp11
This is one of those songs that no other band could pull off. This might be the most impressive song in all of Pink Floyd's catalogue. The synth solo in the middle always makes me feel like I'm about to have a bad trip on acid but then it leads into one of the most epic guitar riffs in all of Rock and suddenly I feel like I'm transcending human consciousness. When people talk about space rock, it's this and Space Oddity by David Bowie that always come to mind.

It's not my favourite Pink Floys track but I have to say this: Sometimes I listen to bands influenced by Pink Floyd and they have some great moments. Some capture The Wall sound, others Animals, others DSOM... but none will ever make a piece like this.

Nothing speaks to me the way this song does. When the music starts building up again after the screeching middle part I always get overwhelmed by emotion and teary-eyed. If it isn't the best song of all time, it's pretty darn close.

Incredible song--prefer the Live in Pompeii and David Gilmour in Gdansk versions better, as they better amplify the guitar solos. Never gets old and indeed is some of the best the Floyd ever came up with.... Too bad we will not hear it again from surviving members--David G. said he will not play it after Rick's death.

Agree with the other comments - possibly the best song I've ever heard. The long build up towards the end and eventual guitar solo gets me every single time (many an overreaction from me when I am always disturbed at this exact moment).

Probably the best song I've ever heard, and believe me, I heard a LOT of songs. Incredibly complex, atmospheric and lengthy.
However, if you wanna get the full enjoyment out of the song, you will need some drugs.

This is the definite Pink Floyd song. It represents everything of what Pink Floyd is. It's long, peaceful, loud, weird, atmospheric and just goddamn beautiful. Everyone of them took part of the songwriting, not just Waters. And the meaning of the song is still difficult to decipher. That's what is amazing about it. A song so enchanting that doesn't necessarily need meaning. It's all up to you...

My favourite song of all time. Sweet, very clever, with beautiful lyrics. Worth the 20 minutes

Nearly 5 years later and Echoes is still in my opinion the best song I've ever heard. It has this atmosphere and progression that I absolutely love. I was blown away the first time hearing it (and the live Pompeii version too). This song puts me back in early 2010 when I was 18, seriously started getting into album listening, wanted to hear the greatest albums ever made, and found out about BEA.
