3 stars 3.5 stars really!!

This album was released not long after Floyd's last studio album and this shows that Wright had more material to contribute to Division Bell but probably still had a hard time imposing his stuff after the Animals-Wall period where his stuff was systematically eliminated by Waters. Although a good album, this is very personal and one can see how fragile things are still for him and his wife. Wright's songwriting is delicate and resembles the tracks he had contributed to the previous Pink Floyd album, The Division Bell.

Not an essential album, however if you are a Floyd fan, this is a must for you. BTW, notice the diving artwork of Broken China (which is anything but new, since Isotope and others have used it as well) that might recall a bit the "diver" on the postcard included in Wish You Were Here
