About Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd. The compilation spans the career of Pink Floyd from their first single Arnold Layne in 1967, through to High Hopes, the final track from their 1994 studio album The Division Bell.
Being the quintessential album rock band, Pink Floyd hasn't had much luck with "best-of" and "greatest-hits" compilations, like A Collection of Great Dance Songs and the bizarro follow-up, Works. The 2001 release Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd does just that, sequencing the tracks non-chronologically in an effort to place more emphasis on the individual songs as opposed to the era they're from. Unfortunately, the effect is rather jarring when the songs transition from the clinical mid-'90s sound of "High Hopes" directly into the psychedelic groove of the much earlier "Bike.
There's no way that a visionary band like Pink Floyd can be summed up in a conventional greatest-hits collection, but Echoes is just offbeat enough to work. Late-night FM hits sit right next to side-long epics. Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd Pink Floyd.
I didn't care for it much when I first heard it, preferring DSotM and Animals, but now I absolutely love the album. Still love Animals and DSotM as much, if not more now, but Meddle has risen above the other albums faster than any other album I've grown to love. 17 Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd.

Echoes is a double-CD collection of some of Pink Floyd's best songs. It's also a fascinating document of the band's history. They began life as Syd Barrett's phantasmagoric plaything before clasping the wings of Icarus and ascending toward the sun on an epic space-rock odyssey, eventually turning left once they reached the dark side of the moon and burning up on reentry, crash-landing on every earthlings' home hi-fi. On the bright side, the sequence is a new presentation of the music of Pink Floyd which I found refreshing. For example, I have listened to the Dark Side of the Moon album something like 1,000 times since first hearing it on 8-track around 1979, so hearing the tracks in a different context was kind of cool.
