Endless River is just nothing. I wont ever listen to it after the first attempt.


I think the idea was to honour Rick somehow but, yeah, it really wasn't worthy of release.

While I'm partial to a bit of Pink Floyd,  I'm happy never to hear Dark Side of the Moon (original album) again. I think this is partly because it was hard to ignore the album back in the day,  and I always found it a bit contrived and overblown anyway. So as regards a redux,  no.  Interesting that even keen Floyd fans aren't bothered 🤔 either.
I havent got enough hands to count the number , on my fingers, of Floyd albums I prefer to DSOTM.


Yep...good point.  I saw a ridiculous list of Best PF albums the other day which had the Endless River above the first two.  And the Division Bell seems to now be regarded as a major Top 5 piece rather than a really rather average but ok afterburp.  I dunno...It takes all sorts... Grin

Absolute tripe, they should have been ashamed to put it out, never mind charge for it.  It's not even good wallpaper

It's not as bad as is being portrayed (including probably by me), it's just a very flimsy concept and comes with a lot of filler attached.  It's just very minor, really...  I'd lump it in with something like the Orb and David Gilmour's Metallic Spheres.

A new version of Metallic Spheres is due for release today, I believe. About 40 mins of music for the price of a full CD. Think I'll wait for the price to come down. And they missed a trick by not including spatial mixes (5.1 or Atmos) of the origonal release and/or the new one...

In March 1973 I walked into Bonaparte Records in Croydon, the two hairy fellows behind the counter were staring wide-eyed and open mouthed at a record deck, where they were in the process of playing a record volume turned up to 11, eager for the next track to start playing . I was looking through the racks of records when suddenly Time played - all 3 of us jumped out of our skins,  not expecting to hear all the alarm clocks etc. I don't think I bought DSOTM that day but a few days later - early pressing with the posters and stuff. I have listened to it ever since.

I have has a listen to the few tracks of Roger's new offering and I doubt if I will buy it - not because I think its sacrilege to reimagine the album  (I absolutely love Easy Star All Stars Dub side of the moon) and not because I don't like Roger Waters stuff (Amused to Death is one of my favorite albums ever) - but it just didn't seem to work for me. Shame


At about the same time, I walked into a record shop in East Dulwich intending to buy DSOH and I saw “Sundown” album by Gordon Lightfoot and bought it.  Never been persuaded I made 5he wrong choice.

Just noticed that Kula Shaker have a new album coming out  Natural Magick which will be released on January 26th 2024

From what I can see reuniting the original K line up


I really liked a lot of songs on their last album 1st Congregational Church Of Eternal Love and Free Hugs But in the end I had to delete all the inter-track segues as they really really irritated me - hopefully they won't repeat something similar on this one.

A mate of mine is getting very hot under the collar about the fact that only one of the festivals mentioned in the blurb was actually a free festival.

A 32 disc super deluxe box set of Camel's albums from 1973-84, plus lots of extras, is coming out in November: https://burningshed.com/camel_air-born_boxset?filter_tag=Camel

I'm interested, but not sure I can afford it, although if anyone was wondering what to give me for Christmas...  Wink Grin

It's bloody good value to be fair - I think they realised from the Caravan box what these sort of things sell at.  I'm tempted, but will try and resist.

I am really tempted, though I have never knowingly heard a note of Caravan's music. I am just not sure that I have enough time to consume this much of it in a way that will make an impact.

It might be better to buy the first 3 or 4 albums individually  - the 2002 CD editions sound very good and have live bonus material- and see how you get on. Less of an investment.
