I'm pleasantly surprised to see Pink Floyd's The Division Bell on this list. It seems like its reputation has slowly improved since the initial middling reviews in the 90s. David Gilmour's solos are extraordinarily melodic, even by his standards, and his subtle use of the EBow adds an ethereal texture to a few songs.
