Template:Album infobox

Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd is a compilation album by Pink Floyd. Released on November 5, 2001 in the UK and November 6 in the US. It reached #2 on The Billboard 200 in November, 2001. It went Gold, Platinum and Double Platinum in December of 2001 in the US. It is recently listed as Triple Platinum (three million copies sold) in US sales.

This is the first album released on CD that includes "When The Tigers Broke Free", which appeared in the film version of The Wall. (The song later appeared on the 2004 re-release of The Final Cut.)

The album is often criticised by hardcore Pink Floyd fans for its lack of material from More, Atom Heart Mother and Obscured By Clouds, as well as its shorter versions of Echoes, Marooned, Shine On You Crazy Diamond and High Hopes.
