Pink Floyd - The Division Bell [CD] £3.99 delivered @ Amazon

The slow melodious instrumental overture that announces "Cluster One" trumpets the return of one of rock's most enigmatic ensembles; art rockers supreme--Pink Floyd. And in reclaiming centre stage in the arena, THE DIVISION BELL straightaway tolls a characteristic chime of ambivalence, as a voice cries out from the heart of a massed chorale and strings, "What Do You Want From Me".
But for longtime fans of Pink Floyd, THE DIVISION BELL offers an immense, reassuring sense of scale, as David Gilmour and company continue to expand upon the dark subtexts, rich orchestral textures and densely detailed arrangements that are the band's psychic and sonic signatures. A song such as the moody film noire jazz-pop introof "Wearing The Inside Out" suggests the mysterious futuristic romanticism of the BLADE RUNNER soundtrack (or vice versa), with lyrics that offer a typically mordant view of life:the outcast in the centre of his (or her) self-destructed world, striving for peace and redemption.
And somewhere inthe heart of all this darkness, David Gilmour's arching, anthemic guitar provides a powerful melodic focus, especially when he can provide all the "vocal" intensity himself, as onthe moody instrumental tone poem "Marooned", where he seemsto be floating out of Earth orbit until Nick Mason's strong, centred drumming grounds his elisions in the gravitationalpull of a simple backbeat. The closing "High Hopes" mixes mysticism with a dream-the-impossible groove, as Pink Floyd looks back longingly at old times and old friends. THE DIVISION BELL was nominated for Best Engineered Album.

That's 'No Quarter' isn't it Phil? I have seen it but only have the CD.

Fave track (by a country mile)

OK, make it to the end - Kashmir is the last song I think - best till last n all that.

I eventually married her, but alas, it didn't work out.


Rest of story via PM please. Seriously though, music often is a greater 'memory trigger' than any photograph.

There are some great Floyd moments on the album but it's as much a Gilmour solo album as the Final Cut was a Walters solo effort.

After Waters left the group, they went on to make this album and Momentary Lapse of Reason which I really enjoy. Gilmours On an Island is similar to this album - laid back and easy listening, very good.

I have reservations about Waters solo albums but based on the rave reviews, I'm gonna try it out.

Strange that as im not a Floyd fan (Mainly into Heavier Rock/Punk) yet one track on this CD (High Hopes) has to be one of the most emotive tracks i have ever heard in my life.Even the solo for the last third makes you want to sob!Very strange!

Roger Waters Albums, I would put in order of my preference (based on number of listens):
1. The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking.
2. Radio KAOS
3. Amused to Death
4. Flickering Flame
5. When the Wind Blows (but only one side of the Vinyl LP).
6. In the Flesh Live.

He didn't mind it in the 70s when I used to drink with him in The Black Swan, Nazeing. http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn219/jumpingphil/thumbsup.gif

Nazeing, just outside Broxbourne/Dobbs Weir? Huh, didn't realise he'd made it that far south :)
