Well, yes it's dated, but really almost every single piece of art or pop culture is. When the album came out, I really loved it. Over time, I actually started to like it less, along with many other 80's productions. But I've come back around and really enjoy it again. In fact, I can say I love it... But I can actually say that about every Pink Floyd album, so I probably am too biased to ask... The thing that can be difficult for many people when they love/like/know a band so well, is to put aside a lot of what they know about the album's history. Such as the fact that Nick & Rick are not involved to the fullest extent, the Roger Waters situation and all that adversity all can subconsciously take play when listening to this album, which then makes those flaws show. But if you can put all of that aside and just listen, I think the album is a huge success. - I am a huge Rick Wright fan and I would've loved for him to be featured more, but he's not, so I put that aside. - One thing that has really struck me in recent years is exactly how much I love "On the Turning Away". I liked it when it came out and then it started getting airplay and I just sort of took it for granted. When I hear it now, it just sounds so beautiful and classic, as much so as anything else they have done. I don't see the point of comparing A Momentary Lapse of Reason to The Final Cut, it's obviously absolutely nothing like The Final Cut... thankfully so. That is no disrespect to The Final Cut, I love that album, but it wouldn't make sense for this to be anything like The Final Cut and it would have been a really bad move, artistically, creatively, commercially to try to make it anything comparable. Overall, I love the album. I think it gets overlooked a lot and receives a lot of unfair criticism. - I would love to hear a completely new remix on it, just for fun though. There is a lot of density, which always leaves room for a lot of different ways the music could be presented.
