Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason's only extra-Floydian album apart from "Fictitious Sports" was this tossed-off effort with guitarist Rick Fenn (10CC, Mike Oldfield). Mostly instrumental, and with hardly any musical content worth mentioning, it's probably the blandest thing ever released by any member of Floyd. There's not even that much guitar, what little there is merges into the background of aimless, soulless 80s synth twiddling. The pair were to go on to work on a few film and TV soundtracks, and this belongs with those, strictly for background muzak. Even for Pink Floyd completists, the only thing of any interest is "Lie for a Lie" a perky pop number sung by David Gilmour.
