Biography

In the early 1960s, a bunch of boys from Cambridge began jamming together, and out of those encounters were born the early incarnations of Pink Floyd. More than 40 years and 150 million album sales later, the band headlined the biggest global music event in history – Live 8 – and was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. You could say the Floyd has staying power.

I can't understand how people can say this album is a failure.
This album is unbelievable. It's an achievment that I doubt will ever be matched. It is undoubtably the best Floyd Album by far. There may not be as many stand out tracks as in some Floyd work but the whole album blends perfectly to create something so beautiful that you are totally overwhelmed by the whole thing. It's not music, with individual songs; it is in fact a perfect mixture of instruments and sounds that create an experience quite unlike anything else.
There's something about this album that makes you keep coming back. When you're in a reflective mood this album will literally break you down into tears. The mix of acoustic guitars and the classic soft but powerful Floyd solos executed by David Gilmour flood you with emotion.
This album got me through some tough times and it could do the same for you. Just be prepared to cry at the end.

I have been a Floyd fan - that's Pink, not Keith - for four decades or more, which probably makes me mean average age for the purchasers of this album. I bought it (again) because my original purchase is in a corner of the house somewhere gathering dust and because I bought the Endless River, or Division Bell Part II as a lot of people have it and certainly playing these back to back, as I now have them set up, there is a seamless quality across the two albums. Not my favourite Floyd album but certainly far from my least favourite too. The quality of the musicianship is excellent and I always did like Pink Floyd for the soaring instrumentals as much, if not more so than the, lyrics - but know rather more than I should off by heart. This is actually better than I remembered it, even though little played for the last couple of years, even if it still is closer to easy-listening-Pink Floyd than the great and more challenging albums like Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and the Wall.

I had very 'high hopes' for this album release being on heavy weight vinyl over two records and it does not disappoint, absolute brilliant release. I still have my original copy but although the album itself was very well recorded, I was disappointed with the quality of the vinyl (had notable background noise in certain places from new: probably just unlucky).

The 2014 version is pressed on 2 X 194g vinyl (my copy weights) with heavy-weight cardboard cover and the records are housed in cardboard sleeves. No title on the front or lyric sheet sleeve as with my original. A little disappointing the lyric sheet is absent and assume you need to get the expensive box set to have this.

The records are perfectly flat and there is no detectable background noise. Really a wonderful pressing, I wish all new releases displayed this level of quality.

Compared to my original:

Record is louder on the same amp setting.
Sound-stage is more detailed, instruments and vocals have more clarity and space.
More defined bass (low end frequency) without any loss in high end frequency (certainly no detectable compression).
Lower back-ground noise from new, I think a better quality vinyl used,
Also the tracks are longer (spread out over 2 records), which is positive but personally it's not the major factor here for me.

In conclusion: a great reissue, sonic-wise in my opinion better than the original and therefore highly recommended. I am slightly disappointed that there is no lyric sheet included for the price but the quality of the pressing and music makes up for this. So no need to go looking for expensive second hand vinyl copies of the original, this is a brilliant release.

Trawling back over the great period of rock musical history (1966-1976), during which I was unfortunate enough to be too young to appreciate/experience any of it, one of the first stops had to be Pink Floyd. Sure enough, after listening properly to 'Wish You Were Here' and 'Dark Side of the Moon' it soon became apparent that this band were responsible for a myriad of copyists and were a huge influence on many of the bands that I grew up with in the 80s (especially Fields of the Nephilim). Delving further into the history of the band it soon became apparent that after Syd Barrett was ejected in 1967 PF was a construct of Roger Waters and Dave Gilmour -- both evidently geniuses, but with personalities that gradually drifted apart. So after 'The Final Cut' in 1983 Waters left Gilmour to carry on the mantle of PF. With 'A Momentary Lapse of Reason' in 1987 Gilmour proved that he was as much of a miserable old codger as Waters when it came to songwriting (miserable in a good way you understand), but it is with 'The Division Bell' (1994) that Gilmour suggests (gasp) that he's actually a BETTER songwriter than Waters. There is not a weak track on this album -- even the saxaphone (usually an instrument that sounds the death knell for any song on which it appears) on 'Wearing the Inside Out' sounds good. 'Cluster One' and 'Marooned' are instrumentals laced with dark, broody atmospherics, while special highlights are 'What do you want from me', 'Lost for Words' and 'High Hopes'. The sound as a whole is like a Keats poem: sumptuous, luxurious and all invasive. It's different than the Pink Floyd of the seventies, and could not have existed without the band's development during that time, but Gilmour has produced here a (presumably) last blast of greatness from one of the most influential bands to ever walk the planet.
