Review - Pink Floyd: The Endless River

Hewn from the The Division Bell sessions, The Endless River serves as a farewell to both the good ship Pink Floyd, and late keyboard player Rick Wright.


Split into four movements, Wright's keys are never far from the foreground, particularly across The Lost Art of Conversation to Stephen Hawking's reprisal appearance on Talkin' Hawkin'.

The only song per se, is closing track Louder Than Words which lyrically serves to end the tempestuous Floyd story on a conciliatory note.

Being a predominantly instrumental record, it's doubtful The Endless River will create new converts, but as final tips of the chapeau go, it's an understated and rather sweet parting gesture.
