    Is this not a slower version of the first few bars of Mother ?

    Basically yes. If my hearing is not completely off, this should be the same chord progression ( G, C, G, D and back to C) like in Mother. It's pretty common for Roger to use these chords, but as you pointed out this sounds a lot like a slowed down version of Mother.

    A useful site for floydians (many thanks Snsik) :

    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you, no one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

    There's a real opportunity here to do something striking with the mix with the initial release now that HD and surround sound formats have matured.

    Imagine if Amused To Death could have hit the world in the form of the 5.1 remix. The cinematic presentation there really adds to it and makes it stand up as a more complete and unique album as a whole. I'm not suggesting that suddenly puts it at the level of Animals or anything like that (IMHO). Just that it was obviously an intentional element of the overall presentation and it was initially released with that element stepped on by the then current level of technology with release formats.

    Pretty different music, but the same experience is true with Kink Crimson THRAK. If the world could have been hit over the head with the 5.1 remix people would have been much more properly floored!

    These two examples I mentioned are listening experiences that are ONLY possible to deliver and experience with full surround sound. These are cutting edge surround mixes even for surround sound.

    If this new album is presented like THAT it might really be something!

    I notice that "If I Had Been God" is missing. Or maybe renamed?

Whatever your stance is politically with Rog, I can at least appreciate and respeft the fact that he has a strong opinion and isn't afraid to share it.

    Peace
    right on

    Crystal Clear Brooks is missing.
    And there's a new song, Smell the Roses, on iTunes and Spotify. Have a Cigarish - not impressed.
