The 14th and the last full-length studio album by legendary British Progressive Rock band.
After a five year absence, the band that launched a thousand trips returns with a powerful new release. More than a concept album, the record resonates with deeply felt universal themes: the inevitable isolation of individual consciousness, the inexhaustible desire for communion, and, finally, the very real possibility of transcendence brought on by shimmering moments of grace. Like the band's very best efforts, “The Division Bell” features a perfect blend of melodic, acoustic-driven ballads ("Poles Apart"), majestic instrumentals ("Marooned"), high drama ("Keep Talking") and, of course, plenty of the band's exquisitely atmospheric ensemble playing. Gilmour's vocals also plumb a new emotional depth, reflecting bittersweet lessons learned, no doubt, while playing in one of rock's greatest and most volatile bands.
The album reached number one in the UK and the US, but received lukewarm reviews. Album was certified gold, platinum and 2x platinum in the US in 1994, and 3x platinum in 1999!!
