No worries, I know the feeling.

Obscured by Clouds is one of my favorite fall records, so I played it tonight. Really fond of Stay, forgot how beautiful that song is.

I love Pink Floyd, and may or may not have read through this entire thread once in the past. Oops.

My favorite album is Wish You Were Here and favorite song is Us And Them.

What is the consensus around here about AMLOR and Division Bell?

AMLOR was decent, but it seemed more like a David Gilmour solo album that was trying to sound like a Pink Floyd album.


DB seemed more in the spirit of Pink Floyd and definitely more of a band effort. I especially enjoyed Lost For Words and High Hopes. It's a shame that David chose not to record a follow up Pink Floyd studio album.

My thoughts as well. But i also love the Pulse versions of High Hopes and the other "new" songs (like Sorrow) more than the studio versions.

The Division Bell has High Hopes, which is one of my favourite songs in general, so that one gets a pass purely because of that song. It's much better than A Momentary Lapse of Reason and it has its other moments (Coming Back to Life has a fantastic Gilmour guitar solo). It also helps that Richard Wright finally plays an active role again.

A Momentary Lapse of Reason is wrapped in 80s cheese. Learning To Fly, Sorrow and On the Turning Away are good songs. The rest I can live without. Probably the weakest of them all.

I have a profound soft spot for Momentary Lapse of Reason. I listened to it almost non-stop when I was 14 or 15. But I can certainly now understand that it underwhelms as a record. The lyrics in particular are a weak spot, and, as djerdap said, it has not aged well. Division Bell is quite a step up, but I don't feel as strongly about it as I once did, either. Marooned, Coming Back to Life, and High Hopes are all great songs, though. You can probably toss A Great Day for Freedom in there as well.

My problem with AMLOR is the dated 80's production that i wasn't very fond of even in the 80's. That bombastic metalic sound... And i also think the instrumental interludes sound like a Kitaro record. But Learning to fly, Turning away and Sorrow are top notch songs. I think i prefer the Pulse versions of Sorrow and Learning to fly because they lack that bombastic Phil Collins kind of production. Also, High hopes is an all-time classic in my book.

As i'm not an english native speaker, the inane or bad lyrics don't hit me that hard on the face. So i'm kinda lucky in that regard that i can focus on the sound first. I sometimes think that if english was my native language, i would not like a lot of the things i do like now.

I've been listening to a lot of PF lately and was curious to know what you guys thought of those records.

I used to swear by Delicate Sound Of Thunder but that first disc of primarily Momentary songs was tough for me to get through a couple weeks ago

The Division Bell never did anything for me when I gave that another try fairly recently. Just as boring as before.

A Saucerful of Secrets (the song) should be appreciated more. The finishing coda is beautiful. It was the one of the first signs of great things to come, in terms of long, epic soundscapes they were about to create.

True.
Btw, I was listening to Echoes and i must say that guitar arpeggio riff on the last 3 mins is one of the greatest pieces of music ever played in the history of the universe.

Is that the bit that starts about 18:30? If so I totally agree. A justified exaggeration.

Yea, about 18:13 to be more precise and it goes till 18:43. 30 seconds of something i can't even begin to describe. It's like music for Gods making love or something like that.

It is indeed some of the greatest pieces of music ever recorded. Certainly reason no.1 why I count Echoes to be my favourite Floyd song.

The David Gilmour versions on Remember That Night DVD and on the Live at Gdansk album feature Richard Wright and are absolutely sublime as well.
