2 stars Take it Back!

The Division Bell, the last Pink Floyd studio album and the second of the "Gilmour era", that has many followers (like me) since I believe it is a great and strong album, but it also has sadly some haters, but well that may be normal in this musical realm.

From that album, there was a single CD featuring one of the best and most recognized songs of it (after High Hopes, I presume), and that is its seventh track called "Take it Back".

A very good choice for a single I think, because it is a clear example of the latter Pink Floyd sound and it is a very good song, with good lyrics, an excellent atmosphere and mood, and great rhythm, so it is enjoyable and pleasant.

This CD single also features a very nice live version of Astronomy Domine, I know that sounds as a contrast because Astronomy is a very old Floyd song, where Gilmour was not part of the band, but instead Barrett was the main composer, so it is curious to see a track like this in a single of their last album, two different sounds together in one CD.

And the last track is an edited version of Take it Back, you know, that could be a "radio edit", nothing more.

It is a nice single without a doubt, one of the nicest songs of latter Floyd together with a good live version of the band's first singles, anyway, my grade will be 2 stars, it is just a nice single for fans.

Enjoy it!
