CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic
A David Gilmour solo album in all but name, heavily featuring the kind of atmospheric instrumental music and Gilmour guitar sound typical of the Floyd before the now-departed Roger Waters took over, but lacking Waters' unifying vision and lyrical ability.

Rolling Stone

Floyd's subsequent studio reunions, A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell, are fluffy tour merch cut without Waters; the only echo of past success is the 1987 hit "Learning to Fly."

With the departure of Roger Waters, David Gilmour and crew have released one of the most soulless and unconvincing record in their discography. It does have a few highlights and there are guitar solos aplenty, but everything else is just drab and lacking the spark of Pink Floyd's other records.

Fav Tracks: Learning to Fly, Sorrow, One Slip, The Dogs of War

Least Fav Tracks: A New Machine, Signs of Life, Terminal Frost

The only great song here is Dogs of Wars

This album feels all over the place. Definitely one of their weakest. I don't really see a point for David Gilmour to continue on making more albums with the name Pink Floyd.

Favourite tracks: Learning To Fly, Sorrow
