2 stars Nothing was good after The Wall. Another 80's stinker from Pink Floyd. Seeing Richard Wright cast as an extra musician is an insult and the lack of roger and rick is upsetting. The album does manage to sound like a pink floyd album but it plays more like a gilmour solo album.

Signs of Life is a pointless opening track that takes up too much time of the sounds of being on a boat. There are some good guitar effects on "Sorrow" which is one of the better tracks but still this cant compare to anything before this album and the intro can go on too long and the song is just too long and boring. "Dogs of War" is very strained and annoying whilst "The New Machine (part one and two)" are just a nuicesence and clutter up the album. round and around is a disapointing tag on.

Learning to Fly would be an ok song if it didn't sound so annoyingly pop like, which is odd for a pink floyd song. One Slip and Terminal Frost have their moments along with yet another movie. These are about the only songs that manage to keep the album going. A Dreadful piece from pink floyd but arguably better than The Division Bell.

frenchie | 2/5 |
