5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece, and better than You remember. March 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I don't normally do album reviews, but after reading all the wiki entries and so-called reviews of the Division Bell, this boy ain't gonna shut up anymore.

Once and for all, ladies and gentlemen, please get over Roger Waters' departure. It's so old and tired to read review after review that has nothing more than the feel of being written by Waters himself. I love Waters with Floyd, of course, but if the man can't get his crap together and play nice with this epic group, then he deserves to sit in his puddle of re-re-re-re-resurrecting the Wall over, over and over. That kind of behavior is a sad vision of someone becoming a parody of himself.

From start to finish, the Division Bell is every bit the decades-length masterpiece that is Pink Floyd. Period, end of story. Any nay-saying is just simply Twinkies hitting Gibraltar.

The last time I listened to it, I turned out the lights when "High Hopes" came on, and was thankful for an empty house and a loud stereo so that I could enjoy this epic all over again. The album, to me, is simply haunting in the best way possible, making me long for something so real and so fictional all at once that my breath is taken away.

Before I go into the ground, I want the funeral parlor to play "High Hopes" at whatever memorial service I have, big or small, ashes or bones, wind or stillness.

Those are the best words I know to give for a review here on such a great album, one that will forever be cemented in my top five, if not top three.

Stop taking a dump on it, put your hang-ups and nonsense aside, and play it again.

Breathe, folks.

The debate rages on--and is likely to continue for as long as original Pink Floyd fans face off against a new crop of younger kids who believe that post-Roger Waters hasn't harmed the band in any way. I find myself somewhere in the middle. Do I miss Roger Waters? Of COURSE I do, he is a musical genius (even if a bit arrogant) and you cannot lose someone of his talent and still remain the same. HOWEVER, no matter HOW you view his departure, the rest of the band has been able to fill that void with a couple of CD's (and a couple Live releases as well) that allowed Gilmour and others to shine in ways they never could in the shadow of Roger. Of COURSE, Pink Floyd will always be a better band united rather than divided much like The Beatles were better together than individually--but even without Waters their last couple of CD's were amazingly good...this one being the better of the two (although I would place 'On The Turning Away' at the same level as ANY previous Floyd song).
I have been in radio for years, and if the response to Pink Floyd's music by the listeners I have talked to is any indication, folks miss Roger, but they welcome (the majority anyway) Pink Floyd anyway they can get it, and view the band without him as still very worthy. I have had debates with my listeners sometimes for hours--some of them open minded, some view supporting Pink Floyd without Waters' as a traitorous act, well I consider myself a very open-minded person when it comes to music--ALL kinds of music, and 'The Division Bell' truly is a Pink Floyd album in all respects...not as good as 'The Wall' or 'Animals' or one of the all-time classics, 'Dark Side of The Moon' but STILL, a top notch CD with some masterful music performed by some of the best in the business. True fans will appreciate this album because no matter what your views may be, this is just good rock & roll music.

5.0 out of 5 stars David Gilmour is the unsung genius of Pink Floyd April 16, 2010
By Bluzfan
Format:Audio CD
I have every Pink Floyd album going all the way back to Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Pink Floyd is one of the most innovative bands of all time. I have listened to The Division Bell many times since it was first released. The more I listen to it, the better it gets. What strikes me most is David Gilmour's outstanding guitar playing is still there, but his song writing is equally good. He's also got a great voice. I enjoyed A Momentary Lapse of Reason, but I think this one is Pink Floyd's best since The Wall. High Hopes, Coming Back to Life, Keep Talking, Take It Back, all great Floyd songs. I have come to believe that Pink Floyd was just as much David Gilmour as it was Roger Waters. I don't understand all the negative reviews saying this isn't Pink Floyd. As long as Gilmour is there, it's still Pink Floyd. They made their best albums with Waters and Gilmour, but Gilmour has really done a good job of keeping Pink Floyd alive. I think if any real Pink Floyd fan gave this an open minded listen, they would find that it is just as good as anything Floyd has done. My only complaint is that they haven't released a new album since. Great album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless classic! December 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
My favorite floyd album, and i own them all. Why, The Division Bell, because it is lyrically up their with DSOTM as well as musically. But in some ways probably better though. Gilmours guitar solos are spine tingling and lyrics are unmatched. I owned this album many years before i relized what these words he was speaking really meant, and trust me, if you have ever been in a serious relationship you will probably relate to this album. I listen to it at least twice a day. 5 stars out 5, it ROCKS!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gilmour, Mason & Wright December 4, 1999
Format:Audio CD
The Division Bell features David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Rick Wright coming together and recording a very unified and reflective Pink Floyd album. All three with bassist Guy Pratt were the primary performers on the album produced once again by Gilmour and Bob Ezrin.
The album's primary theme is the breakdown of communication between people. The opening track Cluster One is a eerie and atmospheric collage of sounds and music. What Do You Want From Me features Gilmour's howling guitars. Poles Apart is a etheral and somber song. Marooned is a instrumental reeking of atmosphere and ironically earned the band it's first grammy award. Take It Back is a earnest and anthemic song about man's relationship with the earth, Lost For Words is apparently about Roger Waters, and the closing song High Hopes is a powerful and uplifting song about one's past, present and future.
The Division Bell may not be a true return to epic the albums of their past but it a welcomed return for Pink Floyd as a true working unit and showing that their music can stand up on it's own and not just in the shadows of their past.

By far the best Floyd album to date. This is my second Division Bell disk, I wore out the first by playing it so much, and I'll buy another when this one wears out.
