Release date: September 8th, 1987

"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 Wall.

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 disputes.


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 for me."

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."
