I was lucky enough to see the tour of this album ahead of actually buying it. The concert was open air in the grounds of a Chateau in France on 31st July 1994. The whole experience was mesmerising! I originally bought the tape (at the concert I recollect) and have since purchased the CD and the double vinyl. I love this album, it is another stepping stone in the Pink Floyd journey. I found The Wall extremely depressing as is the case with The Final Cut, that isn't to say I don't like those albums. This album however is upbeat and brings with it 'High Hopes'!

It's a quite hard album to rate for me. It has really beautiful songs, but also few boring. I think it's a little too "normal" and monotonous . Considering it's an album by Pink Floyd it doesn't surprise the listener. Good rock album with few standouts, but nothing spectacular. Ok, maybe the end song is actually spectacular.

It's a good album by usual standards, but cannot stand up against the PF classic albums. Waters added an edginess that is missing here.

Good Waters-less Pink Floyd. Docked five points because David doesn't really shine the same way as most of his previous classic albums.

This album is apparently about communication and how talking can solve most problems so lets talk about The Division Bell

I recon I come from a neutral place evaluating this album , first and for most I'm a music fan , I think Pink Floyd are ok & neither love nor hate their work . The Division Bell sold truckloads upon release and stayed number 1 in USA and England for weeks to the tune of 6 times platinum in both countries , so commercially it was a raging success . But is it any good ?

Well according to most critics no , The Division Bell was almost universally panned with average to terrible reviews . What do I think ? I think its ok and actually better than what the critics say . It took a 2nd full listen to come to this conclusion.

Musically its great with lush soundscapes and some great guitar work , lyrically its pretty mundane stuff & in some parts cringe worthy such as this section from 'Lost for Words'
"So I open my door to my enemies / And I ask could we wipe the slate clean?/But they tell me to please go fuck myself/ You know you just cant win "

Fortunately the best is saved for last with High Hopes the best track here and a real highlight .

So I can definitely see myself returning to this album at some point in the future and I guess that's the best compliment I can give it . Oh & don't believe the reviews you need to hear it for yourself and make up your own mind .

It’s a fantastic album, classic. But imagine, just IMAGINE what would’ve been if Roger was on this album too. High Hopes but somehow even better. It’s a shame those 2 greats just couldn’t work together...

Gorgeous, lush sonic landscapes here, augmented by an abundance of Gilmour solos.

This album gets a lot of undeserved hate from Waters purists. This is one of Pink Floyd's best works. It's my 4th favorite Floyd album after Dark Side, WYWH, and Animals. It may not be as lyrically strong as those albums, but Gilmour's guitar and vocals are just as terrific as ever. Don't let the haters let you miss out on this one.
