Product Description

Compact Disc: Hardback Digibook - 16-page booklet includes unseen photographs from 1993 sessions The Endless River represents a return to the creative principles that informed the writing process that produced Pink Floyd classics like Echoes, Shine On You Crazy Diamond and Animals. In early 1993, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright set up their equipment in their own Britannia Row Studios in Islington and created more than hundred pieces of music by jamming together, interacting with each other's performances and recording the results. They then honed the pieces at David's Astoria floating studio, played them live for 2 days at Olympic Studios in Barnes with an extended lineup (Guy Pratt on bass, Jon Carin on keyboards and Gary Wallis on percussion). After that, the core trio returned to Astoria, and worked further on the compositions, alongside co-producer Bob Ezrin, refining the structure, tempos and arrangements. The result, after lyrics and vocals were added, was the 12 million selling 'Division Bell' album. At the time, there had been talk of a separate ambient album being created from the non-vocal tracks not subsequently issued on 'The Division Bell', but the idea was eventually dropped. In 2014 David Gilmour and Nick Mason re-entered the studio and, starting with unreleased keyboard performances by Richard Wright, who sadly died in 2008, added further instrumentation to the tracks, as well as creating new material. The result is The Endless River, including 60% of recordings other than the 1993 sessions, but based upon them. The title is a further link, '... the endless river…' being part of the closing phrases of High Hopes, the final song of the previous Pink Floyd album. David Gilmour describes the record as follows: "The Endless River has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions. We listened to over 20 hours of the three of us playing together and selected the music we wanted to work on for the new album. Over the last year we've added new parts, re-recorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st century Pink Floyd album. With Rick gone, and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right that these revisited and reworked tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire." Stylistically, The Endless River includes all of the musical elements that characterize Pink Floyd: mellifluous keyboards, jazz-tinged drums, musique concrete, ethereal vocals, and distinctive, emotional lead guitar. As well as Pink Floyd's trademark backing vocals, there is one vocal track, with lyrics by author Polly Samson, who also contributed to The Division Bell.

The first listen to this album says ...hmmm what do we have hear, a bunch of tracks that didn't make the original album? There certainly is obvious undertones and familiar melodies from earlier albums. However, it is easy to get past that once you get into the talent that is Pink Floyd. The Blu-ray production is stunning in it's sheer "size" and quality. Actually, frighteningly good if your music system and environment can reproduce it. But even the standard version is filled with music unlike any other group has ever done. Such is the legacy of Pink Floyd. This one will grow on you and stay with you for a long, long time.

If you are a fan of any or all of the Floyd's past few decades of creative processes, then this is a must own! A sweet good bye for a member of the band no longer with us (Richard Wright). Here the sound does ALL the talking, who needs words when the music is this good! Thank you Mr Gilmour and Mr Mason for treating us one more time, and yes for creating another masterpiece which has yet again unleashed the many buried fond memories of our youth. Kudos!

I have read both excellent and scathing reviews of The Endless River but if you are a true fan of Pink Floyd you will appreciate this new album for what it is. It's a collection of left over material from mostly the Division Bell sessions and some from Pink Floyds vast back catalogue that was deemed good enough for a final album. I think it's great! If you are a casual fan and expecting something to rival The Wall or Animals you will be sorely disappointed. David's guitar playing is amazing as you would expect from one of the worlds best guitar players. Nick is on his game as you can tell when listening to Skins. Rick's part is actually 20 years old from the Division Bell and travels even further back in time to the late 60's! The album is a dedication to Rick who passed away in 2008. His keyboard is an intricate part of the Pink Floyd Sound and without him this record would not exist. There is a little bit of every PF album here but mostly to my ears, Wish You Were Here and in particular, It's What We Do sounds like Shine On You Crazy Diamond and is probably my favourite track. On Noodle Street has an ambient jazzy feel and is another favourite of mine. Sadly, This is probably the last Pink Floyd album but I think it's a fitting way to say goodbye to the fans.

A very different album for Pink Floyd. However, if you accept it for what it is, it can be very enjoyable to just sit and listen to. Kind of a 'Pink Floyd meets Tangerine Dream' kind of a style. I am a vinyl record fanatic but this may be one time when having the CD would make it more enjoyable. The compilation is designed to be one continuous flow of music. The vinyl LP is two albums so the flow is broken into 4 short sides which can take away from the listening experience.

I had a bit of distortion on both record surfaces, kind of a light swooshing sound and a faint imperfection on the surface that looked like it was probably a fault in the plastic. However, it did not take away from the quality of the music itself. The imperfection only showed up at the beginning and end where the record is silent. Cover art is amazing and the booklet inside is also of very high quality. Overall, I'm satisfied with my purchase.

This is one of the best chill out records ever made. This album is like Pink Floyd meets Brian Eno. I loved all but on track on the CD and the 5.1 on Blu ray is nothing short of stunning. It has about a 55 minute running time. Originally this was to be made for the Division Bell as a second disc. It was going to be called "The Big Splif" so that kind of gives you an idea of what you are getting music wise.
The box it comes in is nice. Consist's of the Blu ray, Cd,, some post cards and a nice little hard covered book. It's class package.
It's sad to see Pink Floyd go but it's nice that the last record was something they could be proud of.. So thanks guys you gave us decades of great music that will live on for years!

I hesitated buying the deluxe presentation, with all the naysayers commenting in the social medias; I'm glad
I trusted my instincts and got the album; in the video, Mr Gilmour is Way, Way too modest about this new offering;
As I listen to it right now, I'm baffled that Gilmour,Mason and Wright "Plunged" into the very soul of Pink Floyd, hesitantly, since it was supposed to be part 2 of The Division Bell, then put aside; started 20 years ago, then continued and brought to become a milestone in their rich discography.as a tribute to Mr Wright.
I didn't even dare dream about an Instrumental album at this stage in their career. As David Gilmour says in the interview
on YouTube, it contains the wide "palette" of sounds only Pink Floyd can perform; it's a little like a 'Best of" sounds at times, then,
unexpected melodies , almost mystical at times, fill your ears with the joy of true musicianship. Not sad, nor blue as PF tended to be with Roger Waters (whom I consider a genius all the same). Don't cheat yourselves out of a great musical experience!!! Put on your headphones and be prepared to be blown away :-)
