5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece., 8 Oct. 2005
This review is from: The Division Bell (Audio CD)
Momentary Lapse may not have been a masterpiece, but it was a perfectly passable 80s rock album. It took the Floyd three years of touring and four years of fannying around to get The Division Bell out - worth the wait?
Absolutely.
It doesn't make sense, really; the creative genius Roger Waters leaves the band, and somehow the Floyd MkIII put together an album this good. While lyrically it's not quite up to standard, the music is some of the most beautifull atmospheric the Floyd ever wrote and shows that the musical talent in the band lay with Rick Wright and David Gilmour; Waters just wrote great songs.
The highlights are too many to mention, but High Hopes is undoubtedly the best song of the post-Waters wilderness years; Coming Back To Life is somewhat hilariously led by a cowbell yet would feel incomplete without it, and Lost For Words proves that Waters isn't the only one who can throw in a gratuitous f-word and make it work.
This album is far, far better than it has any right to be. Buy it and be amazed.

You managed to misread the first sentence. Of a review from nine years ago.
