Review of "The Endless River - Pink Floyd"
I'm back... :)
"The Endless River" runs for about fifty-minutes, with twenty-eight tracks distributed over four sides, lengths ranging from one-minute to six-minutes. In almost every track, the composers leave a so-called 'Floydian mark'. Sometimes it is just some guitar riff, other times it is lyrics or a catch-phrase. What I mean is that you can tell the name of band after hearing any of the track, a property (or quality) I've found in Pink Floyd's all albums.
Pink Floyd is one such band which, I think, is loved by almost all the teenagers out there. Not only teenagers, elders are also sometimes awestruck by the quality of music Pink Floyd produces. This particular album has much of its content for youngsters. Right from the beginning, PF has been giving out awesome music and it scores here too.
I've heard from many of my friends a thing about Pink FLoyd, which I guess only these guys can do, that all the members of Pink Floyd get stoned first and then give any stage performance or perform in concerts. I have got a feeling that they might even write songs and music while stoned. Nevertheless, they have been successful and fulfilling their promises they make with their every album, and only that matters.Talking about this album, I will collectively give you a description of the tracks instead of individual track, because I have really got very little time because of my end semester exams, but I very much wanted to review this album. I will try to give every important detail and information throughout the review.
The main writer and vocalist is David Glimour, as he has written or co-written every track in the album, and has sung them too. In this album, other than guitars, they have included many instruments like various kinds of organs and pianos. They have also included many extra musicians on instruments.Pink Floyd has always been famous for its guitar and keyboard actions. This time also, these two things are given importance, very much in some tracks, but that is Pink Floyd, and that is fans look up to whenever there is a new Pink Floyd album out. All the themes and messages are delivered with a big help of these two instruments. Well, actually, there are no themes or messages when we listen to Pink Floyd, there is just Pink Floyd.
Lyrics are not bad. Good music helps very much in raising the bar. Glimour's voice sometimes does its magic. "The Endless River" is very much a Pink Floyd album, enjoy it to its full, don't think too much, and I guarantee you will be coming out of it smiling.
