3 stars Conceptually, perfect. The best idea for an album ever, you can't top this one! The story excellent, the lyrics among Water's very best, man could this be one hell of an album. if only. if only the music was just as strong. Yes, it's a real pity, but it's true. There is just so much potential here. what a shame. Of course things are really not that bad, as a matter of fact the music does go quite well with the concept and the feel. but it's significantly weaker than their previous 4 or so albums. I'm sure Floyd didn't see it as a step back, but forward and I don't think they consider this to be wrong, obviously they must be, or had to be, quite happy with the end result (maybe not. but highly unlikely) and I would never call this one a bad album. But, if only the music had been better jejeje, if only they had followed a similar path than they did with their previous ones, cause this one is really quite outside the box if you look at their back catalog. Is it a transition album then? Probably, because The final cut would follow quite in the same direction as this one, but then again, Water's left the band after that one so. who really knows?

.man, could this have been one hell of an album
