3 stars I listened to the record on a long bus ride on a streaming platform ( btw a nice record for Long bus rides.) I didn't expect much of the record and must say I was rather nicely surprised in terms of bus ride music. Still while listening to the record I had a couple of thoughts coming to my mind. Pink Floyd is maybe the prog band which sold the most records in prog history so far. Dark Side and Wish you were here have become the standard for stereo equipment and Pink Floyd has become a household name for people that don't care for or even know what Prog is. Endless River consists of outtakes from the Division Bell (1994) and is at the same time a homage to the late Pink Floyd Keyboarder Rick Wright. Most bands, if they have the occasion, add their outtakes as bonus tracks or release eventually a bonus CD. Pink Floyd releases them as a regular cd because'. remember the dog, yes because they can and obviously because it's a NEW Pink Floyd record. So product wise: great cover, great production and over the top it sounds like 'classic' Pink Floyd, you have the classic David Gilmour signature guitar sound plus some classic Wright keyboard sounds. And that's about it. It's actually quite close to the instrumental parts of Wish You Were Here plus one song sung by Gilmour, which isn't especially well written. Outtakes' Under the line it's really difficult to judge this record; it's on one side exactly what you would expect from a classic Pink Floyd record and at the same time more like a bygone flagrant from past days like the smell of a perfume that lingers for some time in an empty room.
