Upcoming Pink Floyd Album

The good news is that Pink Floyd will be releasing its first studio album in twenty years. The bad news is that, for whatever reason, Roger Waters won’t be involved, so what we’re going to get is probably 60 minutes of elevator music. It will be very good elevator music. It will be Pink Floyd. But it won’t be nearly as good as it could have been. Their best albums were highly collaborative, at times highly experimental, and pushed the boundaries of recorded music. Floyd then degenerated into the Roger Waters show, and then the Without Waters show. I wish everyone involved would take this album seriously as a good chance to make at least one more fantastic Floyd album. That would have been the best tribute to Wright possible.
