4 stars This is not half as bad as some people would like you to believe. On the contrary, it's twice as good :-) For me this is the best album since Animals and the last great Floyd opus. The reason it works out so well might simply be Gilmour's personal ambition to prove how essential he was to Pink Floyd before Waters started dictating what he thought Pink Floyd was all about.

So stylistically he returned to the success formula of Wish You Were Here, adding some bluesy touches inflated to the well known glossy epic Pink Floyd proportions. But the backbone to support the pathos is there: the song writing is excellent and the dedication and intensity is very focussed.

We miss Roger Waters here - that's for sure - but on the other hand, it's infinitely better than any of Water's solo albums. Apart from the silly pop song Learning to Fly, I will defend this album as a prog masterpiece to all non-believers, armed to the teeth and without relenting!

Bonnek | 4/5 |
