At first this album was just as complicated to get into as Final Cut which was really also a solo project from him. But unlike The Final Cut, this one has a sort of humour totally absent in Floyd music and although not immediately apparent, in concert (with Clapton doing all of the Floyd classic in the second and me in the fourth row) one was surprised to see how that strange album came to life, made sense, especially with the animations and inflatable characters in the background to underline the key moments of the album.

Roger's storyline is not one of great interest and certainly wouldn't fit the Floyd scheme, especially with some members more interested in some non-musical activities; it was wise of Roger to make this album a solo project. I don't think this would've fit either Dave or Nick. An over-looked classic especially in the very poor 80's.
