    "Wearing the Inside Out"

    Music: Rick Wright Lyrics: Anthony Moore

    Album: The Division Bell, 1994

    One of the most personal songs by Rick Wright, this song absolutely "shines" from beginning to end. It has a beautiful saxophone and an amazing guitar solo at the end (actually one of David Gilmour's most underrated guitar solos).

    This song sounds like a "signature" Floyd track and is truely one of the best in their 40 year long career.

    I absolutely agree, Jordan. "Wearing the Inside Out" is a great song from that album.

    On a Floyd-related note, I finally stepped into the world of high-res and bought the now famous Pioneer DV-563A and Dark Side of the Moon in SACD. It sounds amazing. I couldn't believe how crisp and clear everything sounded.

    I hope there are plans to release other Pink Floyd albums in SACD (or DVD-A). I would love to hear Wish You Were Here and Animals in high-res.

    Not only is it a great song but do you also suppose it sheds a little light on the subject of Wright's involvement with Floyd up to and including "The Wall"?

    Seems when Roger let the others have a bit of say, in the music, it had a better flow to it.

    I've always thought that Wright was underated...

    I think Division Bell overall as an album is disregarded by many classic Pink Floyd fans as being not quite up to snuff. I myself like it quite a bit. It's an excellent album.
