2 stars The Wall was the last masterpiece by Pink Floyd and they should have called it a day after that to avoid all the stinkers that followed (except Echoes of course but that's a compilation). Pink Floyd should never have reached 1982, let alone 1994. They barely have the same energy and the album is full of boring tracks that dont seem to go to any new places. Granted there are strong pieces on the album but they are so flat compared to the rest of Pink Floyds material.

Marrooned and Cluster One are ok instrumentals but are too inconsistant and end up dragging the album down. High Hopes is probably the best work here but even that can get old fast. Whether or not pink floyd need roger waters on the album, they aren't as good without him. Keep Talking is annoying with the choir and stephen hawkings voice interupting a call and response style chorus. The Division Bell is a nice idea but it strains to carry on the pink floyd legacy. If the band had ended with the wall they would have a flawless discography and would have been even truer legends. Sadly this is the only album i need to finish my collection and it should only be purchased for the collectors.
