Prog Reviewer
4 stars Like "The Dark Side of the Moon", this is one of those albums that I like to listen to fom start to finish. In my opinion, it was their best album since "The Dark Side of the Moon". Pink Floyd was a full real band in this album, as Rick Wright was an official member again, and as the trio played live together in the studio again, contributing each member to the total sound. Rick Wright again contributed good songs, good keyboards and good vocals, even if he wasn`t totally satisfied with the final product (as he said in interviews years later). The album has a lot of emotional changes and "colours", even if most of the time it is melancholic. But for me the impression it leaves is one of hope. This album proved that Roger Waters was important in the past, that they had to play in concert old songs of the quartet period, even some of Roger`s songs only written by him, but Roger`s "dark" vision of the world saturated his last albums with the band, and me and maybe other Pink Floyd`s listeners needed a change from Pink Floyd`s albums between 1977 and 1983. This album is a mixture of the best of the Pink Floyd of the early seventies with a new identity for the 90s.I also think that if this album is their last studio album, Pink Floyd said farewell in a high point.
