The last Rick Wright solo album, according to many the best by all measures. (In various polls it has placed on the top as the best solo album by a Pink Floyd member). It sounds like a typical Pink Floyd album, from the opening instrumental song, that smoothly changes into another track, an element typical of albums such as
A Momentary Lapse Of Reason
The Division Bell
, to the optimistic conclusion. The overall atmosphere reflects loneliness, much like
Dark Side Of The Moon
Wish You Were Here
. The lyrics were inspired by Rick's girfriend's depression.
