3 stars 3.4. Nearly four, but it just isn't good enough.

One of their least progressive and most rocking records, but still has the renowned Floyd ambiance. Great use of piano and lovely atmospheres produced in the fashionable Floyd style - mainly melancholy in the vocals. All musicians are up to scratch but there just isn't much energy or enthusiasm expressed in the music. To be honest, this is more of a 'radio station album' or to be used as background music for guests in my opinion, as it has a general relaxing tone throughout.

'When You're In' and 'Burning Bridges' are the highlights of the record, and 'Absolutely Curtains' is really the only track with Floyd's 'dark side', present on DSOTM and Meddle. In my opinion, this is good but not essential. .And the cover art isn't much to look at either.
