Well, is anyone? Pink Floyd will be releasing a new album later this year, and for something that feels so monumental, I've heard very little about it since the announcement. I know that it was originally supposed to be an album of previously unreleased material from the Division Bell years, with mostly ambient and instrumental material. Not the best news after hearing that one of the greatest bands of all time is releasing a new album. But now I read that Gilmour will be putting vocals on at least one track, and also is bringing in backup singers for the album. That could make this thing pretty cool, and either way, I'm fine with Pink Floyd when they write instrumental music, Marooned is one of my favorite songs they've done, I'm starting to get pretty excited about this, or at least trying to be. What do you guys think???

I'm looking forward to it. I'll need to hear some before buying, but I'm cautiously optimistic.

Yeah I will listen to some before buying but this has great promise in a fairly tepid year for prog thus far

I will buy it, but I'm not excited. I fear they are releasing it only to earn some extra money... I won't consider it a real Pink Floyd album.

Nope, they're doing it as a tribute to Richard Wright.

I'll be glad to hear it, and I don't see it as a cynical money-grab move, but I also realize that nothing they've done since Waters left the group has been particularly special - good, yes, but not special - so in that sense I'm not expecting a revelation, just hopefully another decent album.  I'd be fine with that.

No not excited at all.

I want to hear it, but I don't expect the earth to move for me.

Maybe it is, and maybe it will be a very good album. I'll judge after having listened to it, but I'm not very optimistic about this particular album.

The innumerable reissues and box sets were done for money. This one is done for profit.

Yes I am. I just hope it will be better than The Final Cut. It is probably the real last Pink Floyd.

Same. Haven't liked anything since "The Wall" (which isn't that amazing either IMO), so my hopes aren't too high on this one either. Looking forward to the Genesis documentary (and KC's reunion) much more.

I've been getting into a lot of new artists this year, so I am in no hurry.  Hope it turns out to be good though.  I liked The Division Bell.
