"A MOMENTARY LAPSE OF REASON".

 

Release Dates. UK: 7 settembre 1987 - USA: 8 settembre 1987 - Italy: metà settembre 1987 circa.

Brief Statistics. (1) La copertina del disco raffigura una spiaggia piena di letti, come a formare un fiume. L'idea dei letti venne a Storm da due fonti; una era un verso di "Yet Another Movie", ossia la visione di un letto vuoto. L'altra da un'immagine di un rematore in un fiume vuoto. per la copertina l'intento fu di rendere al plurale il verso della canzone e di generare letti veri in un posto vero.

(2) Esistono due versioni principali di copertina, con due scatti diversi della foto: una versione ha l'uomo che guarda uno specchio, l'altra versione ha l'uomo che spezza un bastoncino. Degne di nota sono la versione in vinile bianco francese del 1988, uscito in occasione del concerto di Versailles del 1988, riprendendo l'edizione in vinile bianco originale, ma arricchita di poster; e la versione inglese limitata con poster stampata nel luglio 1988 in occasione del Tour inglese, che includeva all'interno un modulo per l'acquisto garantito di due biglietti per un concerto dei Pink Floyd e due poster dal vivo dei Pink Floyd.

(Per ogni approfondimento su dischi e canzoni, si consiglia la lettura dei libri dei Lunatics: PINK FLOYD. STORIE  SEGRETI (Giunti, 2012); Tutte le canzoni dei Pink Floyd. Il Fiume Infinito (Giunti, 2014)
