Pink Floyd: A Momentary Lapse of Reason

Sound — 8
Pink Floyd never dissapoints. This album, although lacking the amazing lyrical contributions of Roger Waters, still holds constant with David Gilmour's incredible solos, great guitar riffs, combined with Nick Mason's classic drumming, Rick Wright on keyboard and many others contributing. The combination of the 3 with the help of Bob Ezrin, who did work on "The Wall," Tony Levin, Scott Page, Michael Landua and others makes a great album.

Lyrics — 8
Roger Waters isn't with the band when this album was made, and before this he was the main lyrical driving force. However, Gilmour's lyrics on this album are surprisingly good. His voice on this album will make you reminisce with "Dark Side Of The Moon" and "Meddle."

Overall Impression — 8
This album, like every Pink Floyd album, is worth buying. The last track, "Sorrow" is the most impressive because of the great guitar and lyrics that will make you think. Although this is not my absolute favorite album (Dark Side Of The Moon), this is one of the best.
