5 stars Rick Wright's , Pink Floyd keyboard player debut solo album . Believe me, in fact it is almost lost Pink Floyd album ( somewhere around "WYWH"and "DSOTM" period).

Album contains midtempo epic songs,which sound as very Pink Floyd music! Rick Wright sings in similar to Waters manner, and plays keyboards in very PF style. Snowy White adds great guitar line and solos, when Mel Collins plays excellent sax. In total, the music is very Floydian, melodic, based on keyboards, but rich in guitar,sax and drumming.

Yes, after some listening you can note, that music is a bit more melodic, lighter, not as dark ( in fact -not dark at all), with some jazzy arrangements. So - a bit different from original Floyd music, but potentially could be their another album. And you feel mostly Waters absence ( mainly in sound and record atmosphere).

I think that album is nearest Floydian work of all ex-PF members solo albums ever, and strongly recommended to all classic period PF fans.
