3 stars Relatively lightweight as compared with Waters-era material, this recording nevertheless produced a number of musically listenable tracks (which is really saying something compared with the disastrous The Final Cut). This recording is certainly not a profound social or political statement, although Gilmour has his stab at it on On the Turning Away. Gilmour's vocals and guitar do not shine quite as brightly on this recording as on a number of earlier works. Overall the recording is good but not stunning. Those first learning about the band should seek out other material from the 1970s first. This recording rates three stars overall.
