Prog Reviewer
3 stars David Gilmour and Nick Mason invested their time and money to produce an album which is more accessible and "lighter" than their previous 3 albums. I started to like to hear Pink Foyd`s albums again with this album. It seems that Rick Wright arrived almost at the end of the recording of this album, so that`s why he appeared only as an additional musician. Nick Mason played a little bit of drums in this album, as Gilmour said in interviews. So, this album was made mainly by Gilmour, but it seems that he and Mason where trying to revive the old Pink Floyd sound while adding new influences from the music of the eighties. They renovated their sound without losing their identity. "On the Turning Away" is the best song. It talks about hope, something that was missing in previous albums. "Learning to Fly" maybe is poppish, but it`s good. "One Slip" sounds more like late eighties music. "The Dogs of War" has good lyrics." Gilmour`s guitars are very good in this album.
