EDITORS’ NOTES

Based on performances from late keyboardist Richard Wright during the recording of Pink Floyd’s last album (1994’s The Division Bell) and pulled into shape by guitarist David Gilmour and drummer Nick Mason, The Endless River is a nearly instrumental album that’s intended as the group’s last. Textures often revisit previous Floyd terrain. “Anisina” is reminiscent of “Us and Them.” “Allons-y” 1 and 2 quote ’70s Floyd. Additional contributors—Youth, Andy Jackson, and Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera (but no Roger Waters)—augment the ambient beauty. Only “Louder Than Words” features Gilmour’s vocals as a final wave. The deluxe edition adds three bonus tracks and six videos.

No Roger, Waaah!

I have a news flash for those that miss Roger Waters. He hasn’t been with the band since the early 80s (I don’t consider Final Cut a Pink Floyd album, just a weak Roger solo project). In other words HE HAS BEEN OUT FOR AT LEAST THREE DECADES, it’s time to let go or stop referring to yourselves as Floyd fans. For those complaining that it’s mostly instrumental, you should have known that before release, unless you have been hiding in a cave. Plus instrumental is nothing new for Pink Floyd, take some time to get to know their other work. Mainly this music was released because it includes Richard Wright’s contributions who has since passed away, so it is nice that it has now been released. Have some respect.

Smells like Pink Floyd.

Imagine that you are walking into a great Italian restaurant. It feels comfortable, you sit down at the table. The abundance of familiar aromas fill the room…fresh basil,roasted garlic, stewing tomatoes, sausage, Locatelli and Pecorino cheeses. If you had no other senses, you would know exactly where you are. You can’t wait to fill your table with all the wonderful food and enjoy a fabulous meal. But the food never comes.
That is what this album is to me. It sure feels like Floyd…but never delivers anything but the layering of familiar sounds and musical textures that we all recognize as our friends. There are no melodies to carry through the day. There are no lyrics that run through your mind. There is nothing memorable in this entire album for me. The ambiance is there, but the meat never comes to the table.

Pink Floyd is the Best

Being that I was born in 1995, this will be the first Pink Floyd album released in my lifetime. Over the past few years, I have found myself listening to the same band material over and over again, never losing interest. They are amazing. I'm happy Richard Wright will appear on this album. May he always be remembered.
