ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The reformed Pink Floyd released its next studio album, the incredible “The Division Bell,” on March 28, 1994. Music critics ripped into the band’s effort, being especially cruel to Gilmour’s musical and vocal parts which is bulls**t, absolute bulls**t. If you have followed this blog for any length of time, you understand that we very seldom ever talk about music critics but when we do, we generally trash them for the bottom-feeding losers they are. Performers create and critics criticize which is why NO one should pay attention to them. This is a momentous effort and anyone who says otherwise should STFU. Back in 1994, we were thankful for ANY new output by the Floyd and this album has the gold and platinum to prove it. Seek it out and enjoy for years to come.
