3.0 out of 5 stars The Best Bland In The World 24 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
While Roger Waters was demoing 'The Wall' Richard Wright recorded this lovely album which is ideal for dusky Summer evenings or sleepy afternoons. Wright was the only classically-trained member of Pink Floyd and his jazzy writing and spunky playing informed their best material. This album can't hope to come close to those glories and has even been
described as bland. True, the musicians, great though they are, don't sound as if they were born to play together and the compositions themselves have a watery and passive feel (hence the somewhat self-deprecating title). However, it is still a very enjoyable and relaxing listen. Much of the music is infused with Wright's trademark melancholy and there are even some very fine moments like the sublime 'Cat Cruise' and the funky 'Drop In From The Top'. Ultimately it's the instrumentals that work best as Wright seems more at home playing than singing. A useful gap-fill, then, for fans who may have yearned for more of Wright's input on 'Animals' and 'The Wall'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elegant melancholy from Floyd's quiet one 3 April 2001
Format:Audio CD
1978 saw Pink Floyd on hold, Roger Waters was writing what was to become The Wall, Dave Gilmour was recording his first solo album and Nick Mason was probably off racing cars somewhere. Floyd fans were still reeling from the aural assault of 1977's Animals album and somewhat alienating live shows. It was left to Rick Wright to come up with something to soothe the average Floyd fans jangled nerves and Wet Dream just about managed to fill the void. Long time fans of the band will be familiar with Wright's more jazz inflected songwriting style and melancholy vocals and Wet Dream serves up both. This is an elegant LP, which while not likely to set the world on fire makes a fine - dare I say - easy listening record. The production and arrangement is beautiful and Wright's tasteful keyboards match the languid nature of the songs. An important balance to the more strident approach of Waters, and Gilmour's occasional lapses into all out rock 'n' roll. Shame about the terrible title!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this album 14 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
I loved this album when it first came out. It is a step or two away from the usual Floyd material and is good for it. Much of the music is gentle mood music mixed with the odd 'funky' number but all enjoyable. Best listened to with the lights out and nothing to distract you so that you can just sink into it. Well done Rick.....he should have always had a bigger influence on Floyd!

4.0 out of 5 stars A languid cruise on a lazy day 20 Oct 2005
By D. J. H. Thorn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Don't expect a Pink Floyd soundalike album if you buy this. I don't know anyone else who likes "Wet Dream", but as only Floyd fans are probably aware of it, that's not surprising. I remember buying it on its original release and being disappointed with the first listen. Wright's clipped, deliberate vocal style took a little getting used to, while the opening track, "Mediterranean C", is a sluggish instrumental.
The rest of the album hardly whips up a storm either, but for me it was simply a case of becoming acclimatised. It's a mood album, one of a hot summer's day lying on a yacht or beside a pool, as depicted on the sleeve. I disagree with the reviewer who finds Snowy White's guitar uninspired. I've yet to hear anything he's done that I dislike. Mel Collins' sax provides a soothing thread on "Cat Cruise" which does get out of first gear, while "Waves" is a wonderfully evocative instrumental.
Maybe I'm easily pleased but I like the whole album. There are no gimmicks, no shouting just to be heard, just a tidy and relaxing collection of recordings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile addition to Floyd Collection 10 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD
Certainly not as good as 'Broken China' - Rick Wright's last CD before he died - but 'Wet Dream' is still an enjoyable and worthwhile collectors piece for all those who recognised his under-valued contribution to Pink Floyd.

2.0 out of 5 stars For diehard PF fans only 16 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
I often felt that Richard's musical contributions to PF were among the best moments on their albums, so Wet Dream was ultimately a bit disappointing. I would agree with the preceeding review - its very easy listening - to the point of being rather forgetable. The lyrics are often very trite such as 'this song has no end/too many words fill my head', and sadly the music is often of the same calibre. What saves it at points is the awesome sax work of Mel Collins, and Richards vocal tracks ( less than half of the album ) do have some charm. It just doesn't sound like there was any chemistry going on with Richard and his musicians; the guitarist's solos are uninspiring to say the least and the drummer and bassist do the minimum. So regretfully I must give this album 2 stars and say buy only if you love PF and must have more in the same vein, if not the same quality. Richard's second solo album was an improvement; Dave Gilmour's solo albums are probably slight better, but they can't quite match the creativity of Roger Waters!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Chill Factor 3 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent album. It's much better than 'Broken China', his later release. It has a totally chilled out groove all the way through, and is pleasing to the ear throughout. Wright has a pleasant enough voice, and sometimes sounds very similar to fellow Floydian, David Gilmour. Who would have imagined the following year, 1979, we we would get 'The Wall' and Wright's subsequent exit from the band. The calm before the storm!.

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous album from teh past
Not listened to this since I bought it on vinyl all those years ago. It still sounds fresh and involving. Under-rated member of Floyd.

What beautiful melancholy with a little blink in the eye. As musical as Pink Floyd music, but with Rick behind the wheel. I actually feel good after a spin of this!
