3 stars I've been surprised to see only 6 reviews and with a so low rating for this album. It's not a masterpiece, and the sound is strongly dated to the 80s, but it's not so bad. The first track is enjoyable, even if Pink Floyd are very far from here. Take into account that when the album was released, PF were still in the immediate post-Waters era, so this album might have given to Gilmour and Mason the opportunity to think to a reunion. Gilmour plays on Lie for a lie, that's also the leading track of the album. It features the vocals of Maggie Reilly, recognisable by her Rs, that was protagonist of the incredible success of Oldfield's Moolight Shadow one year before. All the other songs are nothng more than enjoiable 80s fashioned tracks, but what makes this album interesting for a PF fan is its longes track: Profiles part 1. The rhythm and the acoustic guitar remind to the middle part of Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast, and the only concession to the 80s sound is the "hard" passage that breaks the initial theme and brings on the second. It's a 3 stars only, but I find that the current average rate is really too low.
