4 stars Although I cannot rate 'The Endless River' on here due to the said rating abuse attacks on it which have caused it to be taken down indefinitely, I'm going to review the only material on the site, the single Louder Than Words.

Listening to this piece amazed me, for I had thought that Gilmour and Mason would lose their stride in their old age. I was wrong. The vocals still retain top notch quality, the music is a little slower than other Floyd tracks, but is still a great addition to any fan's prog collection.

I would say that if you are hesitant to pick up The Endless River, then listen to this first, and see how you like it. Of course the entire album won't be like it, but it does retain some of the theme and should be grounds on whether or not to get it.

Go give it a listen.

5 stars 4.5: The only single for the last album of Pink Floyd (Endless River). It is a very good song, the lyrics are based in the Live 8 reunion, where the band after several years of being apart, share the scenario for a benefit concert. it was written by Polly Samon, wife of Gilmour, when she saw that they didn't even talk or say a thing to make the room comfortably before the concert. They began the concert and everything change, there was a connection between them. Personally, I liked a lot, it is a very soft and slow prog sound, but really well accompanied by the mini guitar solos and a good arregement, including keyboards by Wright. I considered it a essential song not only because it is a good composition and has really good music, but because it sumarize in words the history of one of the best and most influencial prog bands of all time.
