In 1986, David Gilmour announced that Waters had left the band and that he was taking control. Waters’ departure cleared the way for Wright to come back and contribute on the next record. Gilmour expressed his goals for that album:
“I had a number of problems with the direction of the band in our recent past, before Roger left. I thought the songs were very wordy and that, because the specific meanings of those words were so important, the music became a mere vehicle for lyrics, and not a very inspiring one. .. Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here were so successful not just because of Roger’s contributions, but also because there was a better balance between the music and the lyrics than there has been in more recent albums. That’s what I’m trying to do with A Momentary Lapse of Reason; more focus on the music, restore the balance.”
Wright re-joined the band full time for the bands final studio album, 1994’s “The Division Bell”. David and Wright both felt that the newest album was the best effort since the 1975 release of “Wish You Were Here”. “Marooned”, a track from the album ,won a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.
