Definitely looking forward to it...Just went through his solo work. I have a feeling this could be his best. It seems he's an artist who would do well with age....

I always thought he did better with GIlmour and co. than without...the rest of the band seemed to give him a bit of a needed focus. He seems to have mellowed a bit and it might be for the better. I can't wait to see!


And I can't wait to see him in concert in September :)

Look at my status on the board (the text in the white space under my avatar).

What do you reckon? Am I looking forward to it?

What is the deal with this album? I keep checking for the pre-order and can't find it on Amazon or iTunes. Checked out his site and it just says coming soon. May 19th is just around the corner so I hope it's not getting delayed.

First thing I thought. I dug it - Typical Waters middle section that goes a bit off rambling - but all in all a decent track (after one listen)

I really like it. IMO it's the most Floyd sounding Waters song.

^ I'd agree there. It was certainly his most accessible song since the Tide Is Turning...
