3 stars This was the answer to Pros And Cons Of Hitch-hiking of Waters and certainly a tad below that one but only a tad. Within months I saw Gilmour with Mick Ralphs and Mel Collins in concert avoiding as much as possible Floyd material, and Waters with Clapton on guitar doing the Hitch-hiking and all the Floyd classics. As for the album, this was not as strong as the previous, but the music scene had changed drastically. Murder, Lights, Sleep were seen on MTV so people bought it much on the strength of the videos but there was more to it. The horn section makes me think of early Collins (Phil not Mel) solo albums.
