Pink Floyd is releasing a 20th anniversary box set of The Division Bell , the band s 1994 multi-million selling album that included the Grammy Award winning track Marooned. Set for release on 1 July 2014, The Division Bell was the last studio album to be released by the band: David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. This 20th anniversary box set features six discs, including three replica coloured or clear vinyl discs, 5 collectors prints, a Blu-ray disc and for the first time Andy Jackson s 5.1 audio mix of The Division Bell .
The Division Bell 20th Anniversary collector s box set will feature a new 2-LP vinyl edition of the album, remastered by Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab from the original analogue tapes, including all the full length tracks (originally edited to fit on a single LP) in a gatefold sleeve designed by Hipgnosis/StormStudios. Five other discs are included: a red 7 vinyl replica of single Take It Back, clear 7 vinyl replica of High Hopes, 12 blue vinyl replica of High Hopes with reverse laser etched design, the 2011 Discovery remaster of The Division Bell and a Blu-ray disc including The Division Bell album in HD Audio, plus the previously unreleased 5.1 surround sound audio mix of the album by Andy Jackson.
Another addition included on the Blu-ray disc is a new video for Marooned, the track that won a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental in 1994. Filmed in Ukraine during the first week of April 2014, the video was directed by Aubrey Powell at Hipgnosis. It will appear on the disc with audio tracks in both PCM Stereo and a 5.1 mix by Andy Jackson.
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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

Fast forward to 2002. I don't know what happened. I can't explain it. I had owned "Division Bell" for 8 years. But I still didn't get it. Until one day - I got it. I love this record. It's gorgeous. It's majestic. And it's oh so David Gilmour. I suppose that's the point. I became a serious David Gilmour fan. And a serious Pink Floyd fan, too. For 2 years now I've traveled the long and glorious history of Pink Floyd. From Syd to Dave. From pre Dark side to post Dark Side. All the way to "Division Bell" - my proverbial pot of gold. In a way, I feel bad for long time Floyd listeners. I can genuinely see how "Division Bell" might be difficult to digest. My unsolicited recommendation is this - empty your mind of all pre conceived ideas of what and who Pink Floyd are and try to listen to "Division Bell" as a clean slate. Maybe "Division Bell" isn't Pink Floyd. Maybe it is. In my opinion, it doesn't matter. "Division Bell" stands on it's own as a classic piece of work - no matter who created it.
Could not afford to do this all the time, but a great addition to ones music collection
