5 stars Such an underrated album, for me it's up there with "Dark Side", "Wish You Were Here", and "Animals" (my personal favourites)! Just because Roger Waters is gone doesn't mean Pink Floyd can't make a good album. It's certainly different from the other albums I just mentioned, with a very happy and peaceful feel to it, but it's still just as great as Pink Floyd's older albums. In my opinion, it's been too long since Pink Floyd made music that isn't so depressing. The first five tracks are all very strong along with the closer "High Hopes", with the other ones only being slightly weaker. The lyrics about communication may not be quite as interesting as the concept on "Animals", but Gilmour has plenty of amazing solos throughout the album to make up for it. The solo at the end of "Poles Apart" is one of the most beautiful I've ever heard, certainly a highlight of the album! This album is just plain beautiful.

Amazing, another masterpiece by Pink Floyd! It's different from their classic albums, but no less worthy of getting the five-star rating! If your a fan of Pink Floyd's older albums, then don't hesitate to try this album, you just might be as pleased with it as I am!
