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.

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.
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 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 :-)

I love it, even if the compilation was old material and the new song was kind of lacking. Some tracks on it were superb.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer

Bought it for my dad, who is a big fan of The Wall and Dark Side of the Moon. He's not as into this as he is into their old stuff. It's a different sound. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Shesophist
