PINK FLOYD / The Division Bell 
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.
