4 stars The under appreciated Richard Wright produced a vastly under appreciated album called Wet Dream, while Pink Floyd was between Animals and The Wall. The songs here are reflective, never rushed, with vocals on about half of the tracks. One can recognize that this is the keyboardist from PF, but you never get the impression that its a knock off of the parent group. The songs are written and sung by him and you will never get him mixed up with Roger Waters in their style of writing. Jazzy, proggy, slightly popish rock backed up by omnipresent sax man, Mel Collins, with Floyd friend Snowy White on guitar and Larry Steele and Reg Isadore combining to make a very solid rhythm section. While not the greatest keyboardist or vocalist, Mr. Wright has a sound that is very unique to himself. I find it very captivating.

Almost a 5 in my book as there is not a bad track here. Fellow Floyd mate David Gilmour produced his self titled solo at about the same time and it did respectably on the charts while Wet Dream sank into oblivion. Don't let the sales figures influence you, if you can find this out of print cd, buy it.

Rest in Peace Richard. Your contributions to Pink Floyd and your solo work, while under appreciated by most, will be greatly missed by many.
