3 stars 'Take It Back' - Pink Floyd (Single)

Here is another single from Pink Floyd's 'The Division Bell', an album that is close to the hearts of quite a few fans of the group. The first single from the album was 'High Hopes', which has since become one of my favourite songs from the band, and while this song is still good, it unfortunately does not amount to the same grandeur that the first did. 'Take It Back' is a song that is dominated by David Gilmour, featuring his distinctive vocal style and guitar tones that feel as if they were snatched from 'The Wall'. There are some strong melodies here however, and as always, warm arrangements, coming in the form of nice vocal harmonies and guitar flourishes that flutter in the background. 'Take It Back' is featured here twice, once in the full album form, and a second time in the radio edition. Of course, soemone looking for a more fulfilled listen will probably not pay the radio edit a second visit, but there is also a nice live version of the old track 'Astronomy Domine' here, which is nice to hear Gilmour singing a track originally done by Syd Barrett. A nice single!
