  1. I don't give a damn what sells better. If that's your measure, then Britney Spears and Madonna are superior to Pink Floyd.
    Almost *everything* Pink Floyd did, including their various solo albums, was better than The Division Bell. No matter how well it sold, it is a soulless piece of trash.
    The Final Cut is superior to it, Amused to Death is superior to it, Radio KAOS is superior to it, About Face is superior to it, Hell, Rick Wright's album Wet Dream is superior to it!

  2. I happen to love Division Bell. I rank it up near WYWH, which happens to be my all-time favorite album by any band, PFloyd or otherwise. I'm a pretty hard-core PF fan and I don't understand how you can't like DB. It's one of the few — and I mean VERY few — albums where I can stand / actually enjoy a saxaphone. I like the smoothness of the tunes, the tranquility. Very much like Gilmour's "On an Island." Just out of curiosity, do you like "Piper at the GoD" or "Saucerful of Secrets"?

  3. Oh, I like Piper better than Saucerful, but Saucerful has its own great charms! I love Rick's songs, love "Corporal Clegg", and ending with Syd's "Jugband Blues" was a stroke of genius – already a great song, its placement as finale is so fitting.
    I don't like to say "You shouldn't enjoy ___", or "You suck for liking it". Good for you, if you like Division Bell. I'm surprised how many people do. I wish I could enjoy it more than I do, which is very little. Overall I find it depressing, numbing.

  4. I have a hostility towards The Division Bell itself, an artistic outrage, a disgust for the poor quality of the songs, as a devoted PF fan who learns to play all the songs, reads the books, etc.
    It is easy to mistake my feelings for hostility towards the album's FANS, the PEOPLE. Not so! I don't want to reduce anyone's happiness. Enjoy as much in life as you can!
    I wish I COULD enjoy the album as so many people do. I have tried. I've listened many times, and attended the concert.
    I just can't.

  5. I'm surprised at the level of hostility in my comments to you, four months ago. It's really a hostility towards the album, a fan's outrage at what I honestly consider a poor excuse for a Pink Floyd album.
    It is easy to mistake that as hostility for the album's fans, and I'm sorry for that. It's my responsibility to be clear.
    I don't want to take away your enjoyment of anything in life. I wish I could enjoy the album as you and so many do. Be happy with the music you love!
    Again, my apologies.

  6. Heh heh heh, I've done that too, and I have to admire anyone who says "I have no idea what the fuck I was talking about at all".
    "Great Gig" is, actually, a highlight of not just the album, but of their overall career. There's nothing else like it. And I like that when Roger Waters did it on his solo DSOTM tour, he had the singer emulate Clare Torry's original melody, which is her composition — putting Torry in a rare class with Ron Geesin as outside PF collaborators (before Waters left).

  7. To be truthful, I don't know which of them composed the chords for WYWH's lyrical section ("So …", C, D, Am, G, etc.)
    I would assume Roger had something to do with the music. He has described hearing David play the thematic riff and singled it out as something to use.
    The vocal melody, however, SEEMS to be pure Gilmour. The way Roger sings it, on his best night, doesn't quite satisfy, though it is moving. The many grace notes David sings are sweet, but sadly beyond Roger's capabilities.

  8. No problem, I enjoyed that album and I found funny to discuss about it explaining the feelings it gave to me… And I did it with too much pathos. My apologies too.
