    more from this reviewer

    One of their best

    Despite the absence of Rodger Waters this is one of Pink Floyd's best albums. One terrific song after another.

    Roger needs a good kick in the...

    Well, Floyd defied the odds, even after Roger's split. A bit of history: after the Final Cut, Roger publicly announced the Floyd was over, because they were creatively exhausted and drained. Despite the failure of The Final Cut, Nick and David thought otherwise. They continued Floyd on their own terms. One obstacle left: Roger sued, claiming the name belonged only to him. The just government of England saw it differently, and allowed them to continue. A delicate and mellow release, some of the band's most well-liked songs exist here, surprisingly, such as "Learning to Fly", "On the Turning Away", and "Sorrow". Heralded by critics, and shunned by Roger as a "clever forgery," this will never die.

    Not excellent, but not bad either

    This a great album without Roger Waters. This is actually one of my favorite ones by Pink Floyd. But without Roger Waters it is a little weaker compared to their other albums, but this is an excellent effort for Gilmour, Wright, and Mason. I would highly recommend to buy this album, the best songs I think there is on this album are Signs of Life, Sorrow, Learning to Fly, One Slip, Terminal Forest, and Yet Another Movie/Round and Round. This is really a good album and those who think that Roger Waters is sorry, you should keep this in mind: He was the backbone for Pink Floyd after Syd left, and proved to be even better than him. He wrote classics like The Wall and Dark Side of the Moon, along with other great albums like Meddle, Animals, and Wish You Were Here. He had an excellent song writing ability, maybe just as good as Lennon/McCartney. Keep that in mind. Also try to watch the London performance that happened earlier this year.

    Another awesome album

    This is another great album. Yet Another Movie features some of Nick Mason's best drumming. Terminal Frost has a very relaxing tone to it and is completely instrumental. And Sorrow has an awesome guitar opening. An outstanding album

    No Roger Waters = Pink Floyd At Their Best

    Good riddance to egotistical Waters. Pink Floyd was great in spite of him, and especially without him. Great CD.

    No Roger Waters = Pink Floyd Lite

    This is a very good David Gilmour solo album that happens to be backed by Floyd mates Rick Wright and Nick Mason. However, Roger Waters was really the soul and center of Pink Floyd ever since the downfall of Syd Barrett. If you're just investigating Floyd, don't start here. Go straight to the classic years from 'Dark Side of the Moon' to 'The Wall.' If you get all those albums, then dip into their even earlier stuff. If you still can't get enough, you can finally try this one.

    This album rocks

    I have to say that this one of the best Pink Floyd Albums ever and has some of the highest music quality I have ever heard from the Floyd topped with great lyrics and shame on all who think this and all post Waters Pink FLoyd sucks a true Pink Floyd fan must listen to all eras of Floyd from early stuff like Piper and Saucerful of secrets (one of my favorites) to Ummugumma which has live recordings which rival and in some instances better than some of the studio versions then go to the seventies through today so a true appreciation for Floyd and all of there different styles of music and experimentation.

    Post-Waters at its best...

    It's not fair to compare this album to any of Floyd's previous works, as it is not really the *same band*. That said, I think it is one of the finest albums to come out of the less than spectacular 1980's. 'Signs of Life', the opening track, is a delectable appetizer, touching on the musical and thematic elements which pepper the entire album; a _huge_ ambience, selective (and I say stunning) guitar work by Gilmour, and a surprising mastery of synthesizer layering. Speaking of which, the album, while drenched in electronic indulgences, never veers into electronic self-indulgence. There is never any use of synth for the sake of using synth. It is only used to add to the effectiveness of the music overall. The highlight of the album to me (and I know that many will disagree) is the instrumental ''Terminal Frost''. The piece creates a sense of motion and space, and I get the chills every time I listen to it, particularly at the dramatic climax and key change in the middle, where, what sounds like a Hammond Organ, joins the piece. I also love ''On the Turning Away'', the piece that I feel sums up the intentions of the whole album quite well. Overall, I must say that MLOR, while admittedly more pop-flavored than previous Floyd works, is still composed and performed at the very high level that any Floyd fan has long come to expect from a work that dares use the name Pink Floyd.

    Lucifersam reviews a great album

    A Momentary Lapse of Reason, though done without the likes of Roger Waters, is a masterpiece that i think ranks highly in the Floyd's discography. Learning to Fly, Dogs of War and On the Turning Away are epics which bring the album to a great climax. The feeling i got the first time i heard this album was sheer amazement. I never would have thought Nick Mason would have had such an amazing role as a producer. I rank this album in the top 3 Floyd albums along with Wish You Were Here and Animals. (sorry to all you Dark Side of the Moon and Wall fans...those rank a hefty 5th and 6th behind Saucerful of Secrets.)

    Gilmour, Wright, Mason and Ezrin - Need I say more?

    A Momentary Lapse of Reason which occured the morning and afternoon after Lichot, 1994 in Europe is Linked to this album. Go figure.... All the empty beds on the cover. The brilliance of the Lyrics and the Music is astounding.

    As good or better than Waters/Floyd releases

    I have heard just about enough of people calling this a ''Gilmour album''. Everyone says that it is not as good without Waters, but I think it's a fresh change. While some songs can seem pointless (A New Machine) most are absolute masterpieces (One slip;Learning to Fly;Terminal Frost). If people will forget about who's playing the music and listen to the music itself, this album would get a lot of better reviews. Certainly, Signs of Life and On the Turning Away are the kind of musical gems that keep Pink Floyd going strong when others beleive they are sure to fail. This is no Dark Side of the Moon, but it's definitely a lot better than most of the ''music'' being released these days. If I could give this four and a half stars, I would. A must-buy for all Floyd fans.

    Learn TO Fly

    This entire album is as spectacular as all the others from Pink Floyd, but I think that 'learning to fly' and 'the turning away' boost it to levels beyond conscious imagination. The dreaming quality of these songs provides a great escape and focus to relieve worldly pressures and stress.
