REVIEWS
Average points: 5.2 (Reviews: 44)
*****
Aus Januar 1988, von das Album "Delicate Sound Of Thunder", aber kein Hit in Holland ("Bubbling Under").
******
...gewaltig! Dieser Song stammt aber aus dem 87er Album "A momentary lapse of reason". "Delicate of thunder" war ja ein Live Album ...
*****
...und bildet eine Ausnahme zum ansonsten eher schwachen Material dieser Platte! Gilmour spielt wie einst bei "Comfortably numb" - wunderschön! Sehr gut... Da stört mich auch die poppige Produktion weniger!
******
Bester Song des Albums
*****
mal ein Song, welcher nicht diese drückende, düstere Atmosphäre verbreitet; ist noch recht schön zum anhören...
******
Great song. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!
*****
Da gefällt mir "Comfortably Numb" doch deutlich besser, auch wenn die Gitarre vom Feinsten ist.
******
Starker Song aus der Spätphase von Pink Floyd, die in dieser Zeit mit eher belanglosen Zeugs gelangweilt haben. Stücke wie "On the turning away" bilden da eine Ausnahme.
******
toll! Warum gabs in der schlussphase nicht mehr in diesem stil?
******
wunderschön
*****
*****
****
Hymne gegen Armut und Unterdrückung, ist aktueller als je zuvor und kommt mir musikalisch sehr entgegen und gefällt mir wesentlich besser als viele andere Songs von ihnen.
Schöne Melodieabfolgen, die Gitarrenteile natürlich weniger, ziemlich gelungen und nur sehr knapp keine 5.
*****
sicher die beste / schönste nummer vom momentary album.. #55 in GB.
******
Wunderschön !!!!!
*****
Joa...
******
wunderbar
*****
Zwischen 5 und 5,5.
*****
Steigert sich am Ende 'Comfortably Numb'-mäßig.
*****
gewohnt gut
******
Sehr schön und exzellent gespielt.
*****
In januari 1988 was dit de 2e single van het album "A momentary lapse of reason". De single kwam tot nr 47 zie ik hier, terwijl ie bij de tegenhangers van de Top 40 maar liefst 7 weken werd getipt (27-19-11-9-6-5-4) voordat ie verdween. Mooie plaat!!!
******
Bockstark.
******
ausgezeichnet
****
gutes Rockstück aus den 80er, hätte ich mir jedoch tempomässig flotter gewünscht – 4.5 (abgerundet)...
******
meiner meinung nach der höhepunkt von A Momentary Lapse...

... no more turning away
from the weak and the weary
no more turning away
from the coldness inside
just a world that we all must share
it's not enough just to stand and stare
is it only a dream that there'll be
no more turning away...

eine hymne gegen armut und unterdrückung, die uns auffordert hinzusehen, statt vogelstraussmässig wegzugucken!
*****
... spitzenmäßige Nummer ...
*****
sehr gut
*****
inhaltlich sehr gut

musikalisch eher durchschnitt, hätte auch prima auf THE WALL gepasst

errinert mich ein bisschn an einige irische und schottische volkslieder

aber ohne frage neben LEARNING TO FLY der höhepunkt auf dem album
*****
Sehr ordentliche Nummer, gute 5*.
******
Explosion!
*****
Peaked at #48 in Australia, 1988 (AMR).
******
Sicherlich das Highlight vom eher schwachen 87er Werk.
******
C'est inhabituel chez Pink Floyd mais c'est très bon.
***
▒ Overdrijven is menselijk hoor !!! Maar deze keurige ø plaat van de Britse rockformatie: "Pink Floyd", uit december 1987 is zeker géén hoogvlieger, en ook nimmer geweest !!! (NL Tip 30: 7 wk / # 4) ☺!!!
******
Een zoveelste bewijs van de kunde van Pink Floyd.
******
Der Hammer. Von Anfang bis Ende!
*****
Schließe mich der Mehrheit an.
****
Sicher nicht schlecht, aber für mich hier absolut überbewertet, mehr als eine 4 ist das für mich nicht!
****
geht so...
*****
Das ein guter Pop-Rock Song, mit guter Melodie und Gilmour-Solo. So wie es gehört.
*****
Fijn nummer van een verrassend goed album.

Das ist doch kalter Kaffee. Hat gar nichts damit zu tun wie ich Pink Floyd kenne und liebe Ende der 60er und Anfang der 70er. Langweilig, kraftlos. Irgendwann gibt Gilmour noch mal Gas, um der schleppenden Langeweile ein wenig Licht zu geben. Sowas kriegt jede 0815 Rockband hin. Naja, jeder wie er meint.
****

Klingt ganz nett.
******
Mein Lieblinglied ever. Noch schöner finde ich die Live-Version auf "Delicate Sound Of Thunder".
