"A Momentary Lapse of Reason" is yet another solo album. This
time Rick Wright and Nick Mason were so distrought from the quarrels
with Roger that their musical abilities were almost null. Dave
Gilmour was almost of his own with little help from the rest of the
bad. He had some major help from Bob Erzin the producer from The
This Album is very different in respects to old school Pink
Floyd. You can see the change in this album that would inspire the
"Division Bell" at least in my opinion. It lays the ground work for
the new era of Pink Floyd after Roger Waters leaves and the band
re-coupes from long term fame and also creative and political
David Gilmour: "Both Nick and Rick were
catatonic in terms of their playing ability at the beginning.
Neither of them played on this at all really. In my view, they'd
been destroyed by Roger. Nick played a few tom-toms on one track,
but for the rest I had to get in other drummers. Rick played some
tiny little parts. For a lot of it, I played the keyboards and
pretended it was him. The record was basically made by me, and other
people and God knows what. I didn't think it was the best Pink Floyd
album ever made, but I gave it the best damn shot I could."
Nick Mason: "Dave was under a lot of pressure
to come up with songs and he looked for help where he could find it.
It was fun recording on the boat (Gilmour's floating studio at
Hampton-on-Thames) but then we went to America and hired all these
sessions musicians who could knock things off quickly. At the time
it seemed like a reasonable route to go but that was quite alarming
Rick Wright: "I wasn't a member of the band.
By now they didn't know me. We hadn't played together for years. I
was paid a wage on the sessions. I did get royalties on the album.
Not as many as Dave and Nick though."
