This is an average album, but knowing that it is from Pink Floyd, it makes it a disappointing album that shouldn't be bought except for collectors.

Roger Water's gone and wright is not in the line up. The music is often mellow, but does not sound so much like Pink Floyd. IT sounds like a solo Album of Gilmour.

1. Signs of life 4/10 : A decent but not too special Shine on you wannabe. It lacks magic, and is boring.

2. Learning to fly 6/10 : A decent bouncy pop song, with good musicianship.

3. The dogs of war 5/10 : The music sounds like welcome to the machine(dark). It also sounds dramatic and symphonic. 4. One slip 3/10 : very weak composition makes a weak track

5. On the turning away 7/10 : Easily the strongest song from the album. It talks about hope, and contains pretty acoustic guitar embellishments.

6. Yet another movie 4.5/10 : kinda boring and pointless long piece.

7. Round and round : filler

8. A new machine Part one : filler

9. Terminal frost : 5.5/10 : the guitar work is not bad at all, but it lacks in composition and hooks. 10. A new machine Part two : filler

11. Sorrow 6/10 : The slow distorted guitar intro is my favourite moment of the album, but the rest of the song drags, is mediocre, and can be called filler, or bad song writing.

So, overall ... I do not enjoy this album much, and I think I wasted my money. I warn you that this is weak Pink Floyd.

My Grade : D+

Zitro | 2/5 |
