here is the list by the "music critic"
1. Wish You Were Here
2. Comfortably Numb
3. Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Parts 1-5 "..Gilmour is not an extravagant student of sounds, and he never creates an otherworldly moment; compare this, unquestionably his greatest work on record, with say, Steve Howe’s “Going for the One.” There’s really no comparison."
4. Welcome to the Machine
5. Bike
6. Echoes "..Lyrically, we start out with the albatross hanging motionless upon the air, a neat trick, and things go south from there words-wise"

29. Nobody Home
30. Sheep "..Sometimes you actually feel for Waters when it comes to his lazy bandmates"
31. Pigs (Three Different Ones) "..“Big man, pig man / Ha ha / Charade you are.” Charade you are? What the hell is that? Yoda as a drama queen?"
32. Dogs "..This is a very long song, 16 full minutes.."
33. Free Four
34. Not Now John ".. I really don’t get what The Final Cut is about, though I am given to understand that the cut in question was an unkind one indeed, though not as unkind as the one Waters was about to get from his longtime bandmates"

59. Ibiza Bar

80. Lost for Words
81. Keep Talking
82. A Great Day for Freedom "..The lyrics, provided by Gilmour squeeze Samson, contain convoluted constructions like “change, that even with regret, cannot be undone,” whatever that means. Odd that during the recording process no one suggested they be improved."
83. In the Flesh?
84. A Spanish Piece
85. Fat Old Sun
86. More Blues
87. Vera
88. A New Machine, Part 2 ".. Another 39 seconds of the unnecessary 1:45 of the jazz we’d been subjected to just before “Terminal Frost.”

90. Terminal Frost "...the second side of Momentary Lapse was shaping up to be by far the least interesting side of music .. since the dreadful days of Ummagumma."
