  1. 8.0 |   The FT

    How fitting that a band so accustomed to loss should close their account with an engrossing elegy to their own past
    Read Review

  2. 7.0 |   Uncut

    A graceful, open-hearted swansong. Print edition only

  3. 7.0 |   All Music

    They're saying goodbye not with a major statement but with a soft, bittersweet elegy that functions as a canny coda to their career
    Read Review

  4. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    What The Endless River foregrounds is a romanticism that wends through all three eras of Pink Floyd, and in many ways redeems the excesses and frequent absurdities of each

  5. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    An unexpected, welcome epitaph
    Read Review

  6. 7.0 |   The Music

    Saved by the pure melancholy that resonates in Gilmour’s voice as he says goodbye to Pink Floyd, leaving behind a part of himself
    Read Review

  7. 7.0 |   The Quietus

    While it's unlikely to win the band many new admirers, the casual Floyd fan will find much to enjoy here

  8. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    A rather muted goodbye
    Read Review

  9. 6.0 |   The Arts Desk

    There are only hints of that old Floydian ominousness
    Read Review

  10. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    offers long-time fans a chance to wallow in a lot of very, very Gilmouresque soloing, heavy on the yearning string-bends and his patented emotional shift from introspective melancholy to soaring euphoria,
    Read Review

  11. 6.0 |   Exclaim

    Serves its purpose as well as a collection of unreleased material can — it remembers an integral band member while reflecting on past glories in a reserved, respectable fashion
    Read Review

  12. 6.0 |   Q

    The Endless River is an unsatisfying way for Pink Floyd to cease trading. Print edition only

  13. 6.0 |   Mojo

    The Endless River is big on atmosphere, just a little light on songs. Print edition only

  14. 6.0 |   music OMH

    It is a genuine thrill to hear new material from them, but it comes with the caveat that every way you turn it’s like a series of pictures of old friends who have long since moved on
    Read Review

  15. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    This is an enticing and haunting musical experience with layered textures and enchanting combinations of varied rhythms and melodies. The problems with The Endless River are not so much what we are given, but what is left out
    Read Review

  16. 5.7 |   Pitchfork

    Proves to be one of the few Pink Floyd releases that sounds like a step backwards, with nothing new to say and no new frontiers to explore
    Read Review

  17. 5.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Sees the band doing what they’ve always done best: making jazzy and contemplative rock music
    Read Review

  18. 5.0 |   NME

    As the final word on Pink Floyd, it feels like a lightweight coda from a truly heavyweight group
    Read Review

  19. 3.5 |   Under The Radar

    Belongs not in the pantheon of the great Pink Floyd, but in a hotel elevator
    Read Review

  20. 3.0 |   Tiny Mix Tapes

    Rating only - no review
    Read Review

  21. 2.0 |   The Independent

    Without the sparking creativity of a Syd or Roger, all that's left is ghastly faux-psychedelic dinner-party muzak
    Read Review

  22. 2.0 |   Clash

    A terrifically tedious affair of absolutely no consequence
    Read Review

  23. 1.0 |   Beardfood

    "Louder Than Words" is the worst song composed by anyone forever. Ignore this, lest you thirst for ruined legacies. This. Never. Happened
