1 stars Nice songs, but edited!

This was the main mistake when this single was published. Though the decision of editing the tracks are for commercial purposes, I don't think one can truly enjoy or accept it, I can't, because the true essence of the songs is lost when it is edited.

"The Division Bell" was the last Pink Floyd studio album, one of those love-hate releases that always have something to share and give something to talk about. "High Hopes" is probably the better known track, starting with those memorable bell rings, and creating an atmospheric and disarming song. The original version is outstanding, Gilmour riffs unforgettable. And now, this edited (almost half the song edited) version is just a slice and a shadow of the original, that is why I am not happy with it.

The version of "Keep Talking" was also edited, and was of course (in my opinion) a mistake. The only good thing about this single was the surprising inclusion of a live version of "One of These Days".

So in spite one can listen to it and enjoy the moments, I am totally against the edition of the tracks, which is why I consider this to be a one-star single, poor, only for completionists. However?

Enjoy it!
