EDITORS’ NOTES

David Gilmour took some criticism for carrying on Pink Floyd without Roger Waters—not least from Waters himself. Begun as a solo album, this became the relaunch of Pink Floyd when cofounders Rick Wright and Nick Mason joined in. Gilmour's less-acidic worldview means A Momentary Lapse of Reason lacks the pointed lyrical edge of the last handful of Floyd albums. But the lush, richly detailed arrangements of tracks like the dreamy "Learning to Fly" give Gilmour's liquid guitar solos room to evolve.

Another old dude ,

Can’t understand

Although I understand Roger is a huge piece of the Floyd puzzle you could argue without Syd its not really Floyd also (although that’s a tough argument)
They contributed immensely but the sound went on (at least for a while). I wish we could see them forever but alas it’s over. I love this album. I can’t understand why it’s not given it’s due.

Another classic.

Pink Floyd demonstrates the lack or need for Roger Waters.
