Louder Than Words is excruciating. "Diss each other on sight"? Not even Bono's writing lyrics that bad yet.

I have zero motivation to listen to this. It just seems very unnecessary.

High Hopes was a perfect send-off for the band.

If you're a Pink Floyd completest, then, more than likely, you're gonna wanna have/listen to this album. I haven't heard anything from it yet because it doesn't seem like anything I would rush to purchase. Instrumentals are cool, but if I'm listening in the car, I want something a little more uptempo.

Hey! I'm new here and Pink Floyd is my other favorite band.

I personally love The Endless River. It surely can't be compared to some of their masterpieces, like The Wall, Dark Side or Animals, but I think that this album is a beautiful ending to an incredible band.
Of course, if you didn't like Marooned, you're probably not going to enjoy Endless River. By that, I don't mean that every track on the album sounds just like Marooned, I just mean that if you don't like instrumental Pink Floyd, Endless River probably won't amaze you.
But I think those new tracks have a kind of magic inside of them. I like the fact that you can really hear Rick's playing on almost every track. It's like a reminder of how unique and incredible he was as a player. This album is a great tribute to him. Like David said, he was a bit like George Harrison, he brought a lot to his band but tended to be a bit in the shadow of David and Roger.

I can't envisage ever listening to Endless River, to be honest.

My one listen was enough.

If I want to listen to laid back, ambient post-rock, there are a thousand more engaging bands.

It's true! Those opening lines are atrocious!

I agree with you. High Hopes was indeed the perfect send off. But this new album is still somewhat interesting to listen to for Rick Wright's work and demos that could've become songs. But I wouldn't call it essential of course.

Very true! The only place I listen to music anymore is in the car on my way to and from work. #oldman. But this album is a bit too laid back to listen to while driving. Yet I have to do it. That's my me time.


I bought this album belatedly (only about 2 weeks or so back). Firstly I was quite impressed with the physical package, the liner notes, the photos, the way the CD is fixed on the back board etc. It was a refreshing change to the lazy horrible liner notes for Songs of Innocence. The album itself is okay. Not terrible. Not particularly great or memorable either. It is not essential but as a lifelong Pink Floyd fan I bought it.

Most memorable track: It's What We Do (track 2), Shine On You Crazy Diamond's long lost cousin.

The opener was also quite nice. And the track just before Louder Than Words was interesting too. Wish Louder Than Words had better lyrics though.

Finally heard Louder Than Words for the first time today. It's alright, not as bad as I was expecting based on some of the comments I've heard/read. I have no immediate compunction to listen to it again soon, but it was ok.

I still haven't heard the whole thing through from start to finish yet, but it seems alright. Nothing I've heard has been "ugh" bad, but nothing "holy shit" good, either.

One thing that does bug me though is that with a decent pair of headphones on, I can hear a pretty drastic difference in sound quality between the stuff recorded in 1993, and the stuff recorded in 2014. There's a different tonal quality to it that's hard to explain, but for me it's pretty easy to tell if a particular guitar or drum part (obviously the keyboards/piano was 93) was recorded new.

I can see how some people would not like that this exists if it's treated like an "official Pink Floyd album" (whatever that means), but I sort of treat it in the same way as I do the Beatles Anthology. Some nice studio outtakes that have been cleaned up, a few fleshed out into full new songs but not really in the official canon of "Pink Floyd albums", IMO. A nice treat for fans/completists but nowhere near essential.

I don't know when this was announced, but apparently Gilmour has a solo album coming in September. The title track, "Rattle That Lock," is in this link as well:

Gilmour has made an announcement stating that Pink Floyd are done...forever. Not exactly a shock to fans of the group, but he just wanted to make it official. While I never caught Floyd with Waters in the lineup, I saw them in '94 at Giants Stadium for their Division Bell tour. I still have my tee shirt from that show and it still fits nicely. That show will forever be one of my most favorite concert experiences ever. Can't believe that was 21 years ago.

They were done the second Rick Wright died.

I just want to say that Obscured By Clouds is now my third favorite Floyd album after Wish You Were Here and Meddle. I can't stop listening to it

Sorry, haters.

I believe I made my opinion on Obscured by Clouds clear a few threads ago. It's the most underrated of all the Floyd albums, IMO.

I agree with Cobbler, they were done for good once Rick died. I'm thankful we got the Live 8 performance, for me that's the last act of the Floyd (I consider The Endless River to be more along the lines of something like Relics rather than a "true" Pink Floyd album).

Gilmour felt the same way. I suppose for any fans holding out hope that PF would continue, David just felt he needed to make an official announcement. I'll never forget being 19 years old and listening to Dark Side in its entirety for the first time. A mind-blowing experience. Us and Them is my favorite track, but for me Dark Side was always one long song.

Obscured by Clouds is pretty good. It's too bad that those songs never really got a shake in a live environment - the band's propensity to play albums in full starting with Dark Side meant that only three songs from OBC ever got played live.

I prefer Obscured By Clouds to The Wall, every day of the week.
