    General CommentSeems like to me that the album's about alienation. So...

    The title is 'Cluster One', a reference to being in a completely different world that everyone else. So far out in space that you can't communicate.

    I like that it starts out so empty sounding; clean and refreshing, then turns to alienation.

    General CommentIf you say so, I personally have never cared for this song, or the album in particular. Unlike instrumentals such as:
    On the Run
    Any Colour You Like
    One of These Days
    Careful With That Axe Eugene
    Atom Heart Mother Suite
    Nick's Boogie (couldn't resist this one)
    this song seems to go nowhere, and doesn't do enough to keep it interesting in going nowhere. Perhaps this is important in the context of the Division Bell album, but I somehow don't think so. I think PF was just running out of ideas at that point.

    Still the best band ever, though.

    General Commentto be fair, one of these days isn't wholly intrumental.
    well, it can't really be classified as anything else
    but the "one of these days i'm going to cut you into little pieces" is sooo fucking significant.

    god, i need to relax and go to rehab for floyd addiction.

    General CommentI love how this starts the album. This song is like someone waking up from a long sleep and finally being at peace with the world. They've had their struggles and eventually they were just too much to take and the person conked out. Their body reset itself, and when they woke up they just understood. Wonderful song.

    General CommentI agree thedanman.

    I believe the meaning is classic Floyd. Cluster One is a category of severe psychological disorders, reference the DSMIV-R. =o)

    General CommentA great song, it's kind of like a prologue to the album. It introduces you sort of like, "hello, I'm the division bell!"

    General CommentI agree with inpraiseoffolly that all their other instrumentals are better than this one. Is the Division Bell a concept album? Lyrically it seems like the intrapersonal equivalent of DSOTM.
