PINK FLOYD / The Division Bell [1994]

Pink Floyd's second Post-Waters album, 1994's The Division Bell dives a little further into New Age adult contemporary U2-esque suckage.
It might not sound as forced as their previous record, Momentary Lapse but it's just as bland and empty. There's a few good songs but most are complete misses and make you wonder if David Gilmour & Co. were even trying. In attempt to throwback to the Floyd of yesteryear, Gilmour loosely tosses on a concept of communication to the album which just seems to be an excuse to hurdle a couple of bitter swipes at Roger Waters.
It's good that Floyd called it a day after this but it's unfortunate they left us with this crap as their swan song.

Songs Of Note: What Do You Want From Me; High Hopes

Owned this. Got bored of it very quick. Sold it. Bought it again from someone needing quick cash. Still bored. Sold it again, for a profit!

The only song I have from it now is the 12" of High Hopes. It has a live version of One of These Days on the flip side, and is the blue vinyl with the etching on.

1 different cover for each format out of 5 from me.

Now that I think of it, it wasn't the "flip side" because the etching was on side B. Doh! All songs were on side A.

Love One of These Days.
