Please, please don't let me end up in a threesome with the lunch lady and a gay pirate. That would hit a little too close to home.

Yep, this sure sounds like some cold Division Bell leftovers, alright.

Finally took the time to listen to the audio clips.

They all sound so cheesy that they almost go into vaporwave territory. I doubt that was their intent though.

They are 70 years old. Do you guys expect them to change their sound or something? Maybe do a collab with Pharrell or Skrillex? I'm not exactly psyched but I'm not expecting them to produce their best work when they live a life of luxury and have really nothing left to say. Now if Roger was in it that'd be different.

What makes you think that? He's way more in nostalgia act mode than Gilmour. I don't think any of them have anything really interesting to say any more.

I rest my case. What was that, 1986?

Edit: so it was 1992. He hasn't made anything really at all in over 20 years, and Amused to Death is the furthest thing in my mind from an "interesting" album. It's competent. Pushes zero boundaries. Never something I want to listen to. For a dinosaur rock artist making an album in his 4th decade of being a musician, it's "pretty good".

It's mainly the production that makes it sound so stale. If you take grandiose music like this and compress the hell out of it's always going to sound like a lifeless TV-movie soundtrack

A lot of The Division Bell sounds like a TV movie soundtrack. Especially "Poles Apart." That song is terrible.

MLoR gets a huge pass from me due to "Learning To Fly", "On The Turning Away" (which I consider to be one of PF's top five songs), and "Sorrow". Don't know about worst, but to me, "Obscured By Clouds" is the most forgettable.

All those songs sound like out takes from a White Lion recording session that somebody overproduced.

And obscured by clouds is rad.

some of their earliest ARE the most forgettable. I listen to them mostly in order to make myself feel like a real PF fan, they may have been breakthrough in they day but don't stand up now like meddle onwards

Amused to Death owns, the KAOS tour owned even if the album was half-baked. The less said about his lyrics 2000-2014 the better though.

A Love Supreme owns. White Light/White Heat owns. Heck, even Meddle kinda owns. Amused to Death is a dad rock album that doesn't suck as bad as it probably could have. If it's a cd you keep coming back to listen to, I think it's time to get new music.

And momentary lapse of reason is butt rock.

I agree with everything in this post. Momentary Lapse is pretty nice, even if it doesn't sound like Pink Floyd. KAOS is an interesting counterpoint to it, but kind of dumb.
