The Endless River (Deluxe Edition)
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.
