Product Description

As Roger Waters's solo career set into a sunset of suspiciously self-serving Wall revivals and compelling if modest-selling solo efforts, his former band became one of the few outfits in the soft live market of the 1990s to burnish its stadium-filling appeal. But their recorded output wasn't quite so rosy. As all post-Dark Side of the Moon albums must have a Big Important Theme, The Division Bell is vaguely about levels of separation (did you say, duh!?), with more than one not-so-opaque lyrical jab at the estranged Waters. But there's a sense that the band may have put more thought into its trademark audio gimmickry (well represented here by the actual sound of the earth's crust cracking--you don't get that on Rage Against the Machine albums!--and a "spoken" intro by Dr. Stephen Hawking, or rather his voice synthesizer) than it did into its songs this time around. The opening "Cluster One" has a hypnotic minimalist lure that dissolves all too quickly into the bluesy waffle of "What Do You Want From Me," while Floyd Mach III leader Dave Gilmour's usually lyrical guitar work is uninspired throughout, a definite Floydian slip. Still, the band maddeningly manages a few moments of the old grandeur here and there. The Division Bell is not a great Pink Floyd album, but an all-too-fallible simulation. --Jerry McCulley

Pink Floyd's most recent album The Division Bell was released in April of 1994(two full months before I graduated High School). The album was the first since their 1987 comeback A Momentary Lapse of Reason. The band spent four years on the Momentary project recording and touring(the tour ended in 1990). The band were inactive in 1991 and spent 1992 putting together the Shine On box. It was during an American radio interview in late 1992 that guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour revealed that the band would finally begin work on a new album in 1993. David, along with drummer Nick Mason and a fully reinstated keyboardist Rick Wright(whom was a sideman on the Momentary Lapse album and tour) recorded The Division Bell throughout 1993 and January of 1994 at David's own houseboat studio The Astoria with David producing with Bob Ezrin. When the album was released(I bought the CD the day it came out and the aqua blue vinyl and cassette), it was an instant smash hitting #1 in its first week and stayed put for four weeks in the Spring of 1994 whilst the band toured in support of the album and sold close to Four million in the US alone and many more worldwide. When I first put this album on, it reminded me of Wish You Were Here which is my favorite Pink Floyd album. This was the band's first theme album in years with its concept about lack of communication. The opening Cluster One is a superb instrumental and one of their best ever. What Do You Want From Me sounds like Have a Cigar(pt. 2) and is a great song and Dave and Rick's music just being as great as ever. The haunting Poles Apart starts out being about Syd and his descent into madness while the second verse (Hey You!Read more ›

pogo needs an ass beating.dont you think so?????.just check out his foolish reviews and you will see that while he has given great albums like wish you were here by the great pink floyd one stars,he has on the other hand given crappy albums by talentless overrated filth like britney spears and madonna five stars.i would advise you to ignore this joker's(pogo) stupid recommendations and buy this classic immortal album which has stood as a classic three decades after it was recorded.five stars.

Where Wish you were Here was a tribute to founding member Syd Barrett, The Division Bell is an examination of the situation between Waters and the Band at the time. The two stone heads facing each other on the cover pretty much sums up the problem: both camps were being stubborn and neither were budging. However, The Band recognized that communication needed to be restored and Gilmour did attempt to restore that communication with Waters, as summarized in the final verses of the second to last song, Lost For Words. While communication is the major theme running through the record, the internal band problems are suggested through various Floydian references all throughout the album. What do you Want From Me uses some of the funk grooves from Have a Cigar, while Gilmour asks Waters clearly if he wouldn't rather just take back complete control of the band again. Poles Apart starts out being about Syd and his descent into madness while the second verse (Hey You!) addresses Waters. The interlude uses sound effects of things that rotate on an axis, except for one snippet of a plane taking off from the original Atom Heart Mother performances, and then ends with Gilmours own self doubts about where he stands in the grand scheme of Pink Floyd and realizing in the end that his own personal life and love is where he keeps his sanity grounded. Marooned is a mood piece that suggests that impasse that people reach when they can't come to a good compromise. It's both sad and angry all at once.Read more ›
