2 stars 'One Slip' - Pink Floyd (Single)

As with much of the other material on 'A Momentary Lapse Of Reason', the 'One Slip' single emphasizes David Gilmour's fascination with blues and soul music., Although retaining some sounds in progressive and space rock, the sound goes down a much more predictable direction than the more complex earlier material. Be that as it may, the song here is still quite good, and while not as melodic as the other single 'On The Turning Away', it is more intelligent in its composition, with more choral vocals and a rhythm that sounds very indicative of world fusion. All of this makes for a decent song, but at the same time, the bouncy 80's nature of the track is lost on me when it comes to emotional impact. As with the rest of the album, 'One Slip' may be enjoyable enough for what it is, but it doesn't come close to comparing with the material of Pink Floyd when they were still a band with Roger Waters. Coming on the b-side here is a live performance of 'The Dogs Of War', which is a fairly sombre piece, and while it isn't exactly memorable, there's an intriguing atmosphere here, as well as some nice opportunities for Gilmour to work his soloing magic. Overall, not a great single, but it will certainly spark the interest of David Gilmour fans.

2 stars Another single from Pink Floyd's "Momentary Lapse of Reason" which is not half as bad as some Floydians would have you believe. Granted, this album is no masterpiece and comes sandwiched in between some amazing Floyd material. 'One Slip' is a more poppy song demonstrating the new direction of the band and I only like it due to Gilmour's accomplished vocals but it is definitely a radio friendly sound bound to alienate old Floydians, and I was drawn back to it more by the constant exposure on live DVDs.

'Terminal Frost/The Dogs of War (live)' is the only reason I bothered with the single and I guess its worth a listen, though in retrospect there are better live versions such as on the more recent DVDs. Overall the single boasts an impressive sleeve design with pink border and illustration of water spiralling down echoing the lyrics.

Collectors again will like, the rest of you can avoid without any dramas.
