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. Each of the 26 tracks fades from one to the next with no break in the music, courtesy of longtime producer/engineer James Guthrie, to help recreate the concept album feel of the band’s mid-period work.
Best Pink Floyd Albums. The Top Ten. 1 The Dark Side of the Moon. It's so hard to pick one best album by Pink Floyd, but I think this one's gotta be it. I kinda wanted to pick Animals though, but it almost seems unfair because there's not many songs on it, so it's JUST a few amazing songs, almost like Close to the Edge by Yes. DSotM is a much better experience when you play it as a whole, however.
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.
