3 stars Too much bad blood here, too much envy, retribution and hate, which blindly smashes hopes. But maybe it's just "temporary", as after this, Nick and Rick would become regular buddies on gigs (famous Thunder and Pulse). Don't know why, but I don't feel so good listening this. Whereas "The Final Cut" became Roger's work, this seems to be David's. Like two small boys fighting each others for pretty girl (audience). Almost, except they create quite good music. However, where Waters was at least a little bit crazy (who knows how much), so his music wasn't so mundane (even it followed some patterns - noise/calm singing), Gilmour is more rock. And certainly influenced by 80's, even not so much. Repertoire from this album would become standard ammunition of their concerts, but is it worth of ? Mostly melodic, sometimes more pop, but there are experimental (not so much, but they are at least a little bit) pieces.

4(-) perhaps. Let's be fair. Even three plus would be maybe more sufficient. However, because of mentioned repeats on gigs, this is quite well known album, just another reason to give more.
