4 stars Great comeback by Pink Floyd with the exclusion of Waters after bitter court disputes. Gilmour won that one thankfully, for Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell we are all the richer. Rick Wright only guests as well which is a shame as his influence is always greatly needed. The album though is excellent and although moving away from ' concept' it still has a strong formula. Most of the tracks are excellent, ' Signs of Life' starting off as the instrumental beauty, a formula used on Division Bell also. Check out ' One slip'' The turning away' ' Terminal frost' and the gloomy ' Sorrow'. John Carin ( keyboards) and Scott Page ( sax) play some mean riffs too.If I am not mistaken Phil Manzanera co-credits ' One slip' as well and John Halliwell of Supertramp fame helps his hand on sax too. Great album and thank God the Pink Floyd were alive and well.
