Liked the review a lot I would agree with nearly everything in there. I would like to say that after listening to it a few more times and reading numerous reviews and going back to past albums it really does show itself as a the if at times with like Trollheart said in his review are very closely related to Shine On You Crazy Diamond, and Skins could really just be a polished more ambient new - agey version of the war section in Saucerful Of Secrets, and again I agree with the Run Like Hell similarities.

I've been hesitant to check this out. I'm a huge Floyd fan and don't want to ruin the magic. Sh-should I try it? Or should I just listen to Dark Side again?

It's worth giving it a shot and considering the background behind of the release and why it might not stand up to their previous discography.

I'd say that yes, this album is worth a listen, but just one. I listened out of respect of a band I have loved for a long time. But I was horribly let down. I know what this album is, I understand the bands intention behind it. But that isn't an excuse for what they offered as a final album. They could have put in the time to give fans what they deserved to have as a final album.

This is the note the band wanted to go out on, and I guess that is what matters. I don't believe a band should cater to every little demand from their fans, as believe that hinders any band creatively and stunts growth. I wanted a real new album like many of us wanted. But yeah, anyway...

So my opinions in this thread are now irrelevant. I enjoy this album.

I'd give it a 5/10... It's quite boring.

Your opinion is never irrelevant. It has just changed, that's all. Nobody expects us all to react the same way to the one album.

According to Gilmour "I really don't see Pink Floyd in my future", so that's that. Kind of how I feel too, after listening to TER. Meh, maybe Nick Mason will release a solo ah no I can't keep a straight face!
