Strange.....I used to stand in line at record shops on the day of release to pick up the latest Floyd album.  Now I have to find out about new Floyd albums thru the grapevine.

So, no, not excited.....the last real Floyd album, to me,  was Animals.  Still, I'll wait until my local library obtains a copy, then I'll give it a spin.  Not overly optimistic, especially over outtakes and unused ideas from a mediocre album.

I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....

I've been getting more and more into the idea of a new Floyd album, but the bolded part of this post perfectly mirrors my own hesitations. I mean, how is the new album going to be anything else than material, which originally was dropped for the Division Bell? 
Then again, the description of ambient meets Gilmour blues really made me think of his collab with The Orb....hmmmm but then again, I have a hard time picturing how they could ever come up with something as fresh sounding as that album - especially without the electronics of The Orb........but dammit I hope I'm wrong!

But it's not outtakes from the Division Bell. It's separate material written and recorded around the same time (or slightly after), but being lengthy instrumentals/jams, was never intended for the Division Bell, and was instead a separate project called The Big Spliff.
For every time you hear this strain of lullabies collapsing, walk towards the echo, and let it hold your trembling...

I think you are right, Dave. It's kind of hard to grasp the concept of anything really new or fresh that will come from Gilmour outside of what he's created with The Orb and of course, Pink Floyd.
Truth is I'm kind of expecting a very 90's ambient sounding album with a slight psyche/Prog rock edge to it.
I really enjoyed the Division Bell and it holds a lot of water for me, so sessions connected to that album? Well, you can count me in. I guess it all comes down to people who are a fan of the division Bell album or who are not to be genuinely excited about this album. How bad can it really be?
Threshold still have all the goods that makes them one of the best classic rock/Prog metal bands in the world. 2014's For The Journey is worth a serious listen.

I think you are right. It is basically a question of how much you care for Division Bell, an album which always left me a little cold tbh. I love High Hopes, but that's it really. Keep Talking is also quite good, but compared to the stuff they were dishing out back when they were patrons of the beard, it simply doesn't measure up.....at least not for me.
I have a couple of friends who absolutely adore Division Bell though, but they were always more into Floyd post Dark Side including Final Lute and Momentary Tats.
Personally I tend to go for the early stuff nowadays. More, Atom Heart Mother, Pompeii and Ummagumma are the ones I keep returning to.

^ omg Pompei is amazing. I cranked that in my living room the other day. They play like Aliens during that time.

Also. Division Bell, I find, is a very mellow album and quite different from all other albums that are of course more Gilmour centric. I'm a fan of it. I'm surprised that you don't care for it as much. I honestly think its a pretty flawless album. Love th intro and the mellow ambient/rock fusings. It's brilliant.
I guess now I'm one of those guys who is excited for the release of Gilmour flavored Floyd.

May The Richard Wright dedication be a success.

Like I said, I hope I'm wrong. 
Maybe the memory of Rick will empower the two remaining critters into playing like they were on fire.
Monsieur Wright certainly deserves a grand gesture, bless his soul.

I just hope that Gilmour friend and guitar maestro Phil Manzanera will have some input, he would provide a little grit and lunacy to the otherwise placid /ambient stuff that might be on the plate. But it will be crucial to hear the organ and synth work, as Wright was probably the most recognizable keyboard player in rock history.

Given the description of the album of being very ambient-like, I really doubt they will be playing like they were on Fire. I would expect a more soothing and moody album.

You can make ambient-like music on fireBig smile It was more meant as a state of mind when playing than anything else.
Klaus Schulze fx was on fire when he made Blackdance.

Well, then you might just as well get what you want. I'm not confident that I will get what I want, but I might just as well get something I'll truly enjoy anyway.
