One of the most easily recognizable and iconic figures of the early 90s were the double face sculptures on the cover of Pink Floyd’s LP The Division Bell, and today, that album turns 19.
The Division Bell marked Floyd’s return of original keyboardist, Rick Wright, and is the second release without singer/guitarist Roger Waters. Upon its release, critics stated that the style of music featured on the record marked the return to Floyd’s 70s sound that made them so popular. Ironically, it would prove to be the band’s final studio album.
The Division Bell topped the charts, landing at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 1994, and the song “Marooned” won Pink Floyd a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.
Though many consider The Division Bell the end of Pink Floyd, fans are constantly reminded of their greatness through those two memorable figures on the album’s cover, which are now on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
