    This is the worst Gilmour album. Still not so bad, but really, it could be so much better...

    If any 80's band came out with this album, I'd say it was good. But since it was David Gilmour, it's kind of embarrassing...

    This is not one of his best albums but it's still good...

    @silvertree Are you sure it doesn't have an 80s feel to it? You should probably listen to "Love On The Air" while you look at the album's cover. Not that it isn't a good album; I just tend to agree with @Akayz7.

    Had this in the car stereo over the weekend and it's still a great album. You can hear the start of the Dave Gilmour phase of Pink Floyd on this - some tracks sound very similar to 'A Momentary Lapse of Reason'.

    Hardly prog ? Shit. Listen to it again. Okay, pretty much song format but this is an excellent album with wonderful songwriting. And it definitely does NOT have an 80s feel to it. LISTEN.

    This is hardly prog rock at all.

    Para quem conheceu Pink Floyd desfigurado após a saída do Roger Waters esse álbum pode não soar tão surpreendente. Mas pra quem vinha seguindo The Final Cut (Pink Floyd 1983) esse cd foi uma novidade. As composições são canções leves para o padrão Floyd. Gilmour usa de formulas, de certa forma, inocentes, porém com uma elegância única. Os timbres de guitarra têm sua marca registrada, solos com delays, acordes com drives inconfundíveis. O som da gravação é ótimo, assim como a performance vocal. A música “Blue Light” se destaca pelo instrumentação com sopros e percussões. A lista de músicos envolvidos é inacreditavel com destaque para, Steve Winwood, Bob Ezrin, Jeff Porcaro, Jon Lord e Michael Kamen. Com certeza uma mega produção.

    This album has its moments. The lyrics are really weak in places, but the music’s always consistent. If you look though the 80's production you'll find lots of familiar Floyd sounds. Not bad by any means.

    I actually like it because it isn't loud. o_o In my opinion, there's only two really loud songs, being Until We Sleep and All Lovers Are Deranged. I think they do a good job offsetting the other pieces which are generally much quieter, if that makes sense.

    Very loud album with an 80s zing to it. I don't like it so much.
