3 stars When I first heard that the great Pink Floyd were releasing a new album, I was chuffed to bits! This was something that was never meant to happen, and nobody realistically thought it would, but here I was with a dream come true. I have read through many reviews on here, mainly people voicing their disappointment on the lack of lyrics, lack of songs, lack of Waters, lack of guitar etc etc, and I believe that the album may have been badly marketed as 'the new album'. Alternatively I feel that if people had done their homework, they may not have set the expectations so high.

So, what do we have here? The Endless River is a collection of mostly short passages of instrumental music that blend beautifully into each other, with the instantly recognisable 70s/90's pink Floyd sound. There are parts that will remind you of other PF tracks, but is this a bad thing? The last track being the only one with lyrics, and the only that resembles a 'regular' song. It is not the best song they ever wrote, (but it is the best song they have written in 20 years).

This 'album' is created from previous ideas and recordings, and is likely to be the only chance we ever have of hearing Floyd as a band again.

I have given a three star rating because I am not going to kid anyone that this is essential. It is for Pink Floyd fans, but too good to aim at them solely.

Embrace it, enjoy it. The alternative was nothing!
