2 stars If "The Final Cut" was Roger Waters's solo album disguised as Pink Floyd album, than this CD is even more of a David Gilmour's solo effort than "TFC" was an effort of Waters. Why? Because even if on "The Final Cut" the music and the lyrics were entirely written by Waters, the other members (Gilmour and Mason that is) at least PLAYED on it and Gilmour even sang one or two verses. On "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason" not even this is true. First of all, Pink Floyd line up by that time had been reduced to Gilmour and Mason only (Wright was only a session musician, playing on a couple of songs) with Mason's input being only symbolic, as he felt he was out of practice at the time. Gilmour wrote all the music and hired several lyricists to write the lyrics for the album. So, except for the name, this album doesn't differ much from Gilmour's solo album from 1984 "About Face". Mediocre music, mediocre lyrics. The cold, programmed 80's sound of synthesizers and drum machines doesn't help at all either. Yes, there are couple of interesting guitar parts here and there but nothing impressive. It is not a total garbage, I prefer it over most of the stuff other classic prog bands were releasing during that period (Yes, Rush, Genesis, King Crimson etc.), but I wouldn't go as far to actually calling it "good", therefore 2 stars is a fair judgement of this album in my opinion.
