You got that right!  Opening with the slightly scary "One of These Days" before "A Pillow of Wind" and then (one of my top 5 PF tracks) into "Fearless" before this jaunty number and then the dog "Seamus" keeping tune with a nearby train, before the seemingly made for Halloween final track "Echoes" clocking in at 23:23 - pretty effing awesome album FOR SURE!!  PEACE and Long Live RP!!

You might be getting Tull and Floyd confused?

If all you know about them is what has been played on commercial radio you are not getting the whole picture.

Both bands have really strong and surprisingly diverse back catalogs that are well worth exploring.

Reminds me of my High School buddy Mike, who, upon first hearing it, (having only been exposed to Dark Side, Animals, etc.) flew into a rage about how "mellow, like my mom's Herb Alpert records!" it is, and he was about to take the record back when I convinced him to give the other side (Echoes) a chance to change his mind. Eventually, he grew to even like this tune! A very anachronistic song!
By the way, the correct lyrics:...Slide a RIND down behind/ the sofa in St. Tropez/...And I'll pause for awhile/ by a country with STYLE/

Throughout the 1970s and beyond, the second-to-last line of lyrics to the song, "Making a date for later by phone", has been persisently misunderstood in Italy, mainly because of Waters' slurred pronunciation ("...fer-lita-pah-fon"), as being "Making a date for Rita Pavone", with a reference to the well-known 1960s Italian pop singer. Pavone herself has stated several times that she actually believes the line to be about her.

I disagree completely. I like the Barrett compositions but, when I listen to them, it's obvious that they're over 40 years old. This one is timeless. There's nothing on this album that isn't at least outstanding. "One of These Days" hovers at (and just barely achieves) Godlike. None of the Barrett portfolio makes it to that height in 2011, though it was amazing and innovative in its time.

 
We all have our own opinions, obviously.  I don't find this album "timeless" at all - it sounds exactly like the early 1970's - but that's not something negative.  "Timeless" is a word which is almost as grossly overused (and thereby, as meaningless) as "genius".  Why "none of the Barrett portfolio"  reaches your distinction of "Godlike" doesn't seem like it should have anything to do with what year it was recorded or what year it presently is.
