OK, we're here less than 2 months, and I'm about to break a cardinal rule of Dave's Place: I'm reviewing an album I can't say, hand-on-heart, that I genuinely like.
"The Endless River" (nice title, although I don't see how it applies ... and I really don't find myself motivated to find out ... although the unbreaking flow of each track to the next might be all there is ... I dunno ... or care) is a major disappointment ... as an album. If this was a carefully assembled bonus CD in a Pink Floyd box set, fair enough. I could very well be mildly raving a bit about the odd track.
It clearly has had a lot of work put into it. It is finely mixed and engineered, sounding pristine and suitably nebular.
It may be good as background music, but for what activity I have no idea, and I doubt ...
