Pink Floyd after Roger Waters?

Division Bell seems to be an underrated album!

Division Bell isn't my favourite PF album, but it's still a decent album, not as bad as some make out. When I first heard it, I was drawn to the lyrical content more than the music itself. When a key band member leaves and is replaced by another, the band often changes direction, thus alienating its fans. It doesn't mean that what the band then produces is bad, just different and not to the taste of the fans. Such a division occcured when Peter Gabriel left Genesis, or Fish left Marillion to be repaced by Hogarth.  Far Side of the Moon and Animals are my favourite albums. Oh, and I love The Wall.

I'm not fond of A Momentary Lapse of Reason, but The Division Bell and The Endless River have some beautiful moments. Waters' presence would undoubtedly have given them more focus and emotional intensity, but they're certainly not bad albums on their own terms.

The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967 album) resonated strongly with me when younger ... Bike ... Gnome etc... classics.
Never felt like investigating  their future stuff ... found it non-stimulating.
I'm the only person I know who's not keen
