    Certainly sounds like Floyd.

    Yeah, pretty good. Little cheese, but not bad.

    Since been confirmed that the track they did was for a forthcoming David Gilmour solo album, not Endless River. But the track Talkin' Hawkin' features Stephen Hawking's voice, much like Keep Talking from Division Bell did.

    Louder Than Words is alright. I wish David was more confident as a lyricist rather than leaving so much up to Polly. The solo is kind of underwhelming to me too, at least compared to what I've come to expect from David.

    So , now i listened to the full album. In my opinion its great. The melodys, the guitar , the drums... everything harmonizes together. Maybe its a bit sadly, that Louder Than Words is the only song with "real" vocals, but that makes the album not bad. Its have that "dreamy" feeling i like on most of Pink Floyds stuff. I think its a great album to end a "historical" way of music.

    Just had my first listen of the album. While certainly not a bad record, if one's going to do a almost purely instrumental album, it needs to be less boring than what this is. The album lacks any kind of emotional crescendo or highpoint to make the listen truly rewarding and worthwhile. Depsite this, it creates a immersive, and truely Pink Floyd-esque atmosphere that only they could make.

    I would give this album a solid 3.5/5.

    I could get lost in this album for hours! This is the kind of music I adore. I just wish it was a bit better.

    Sounds like that's the two disc, CD/DVD combo. The normal CD editon should just be around 15 bucks.
