5 stars Ranestrane plays a fantastic and loving tribute to PF and "The Wall." They have written and added two new songs that are noteworthy, "When the Tigers Broke Free, Parts 1 & 2. These two songs tell the general story regarding the death of Roger Waters's father in WWII, 1944. Great songs. The album also starts with a snippet of a Vera Lynn song. I read that that was Roger's desire but it was axed by the record company. A couple of PF songs are not here and some are in a different order. The vocals and instrumentation are superb. As always, with Ranestrane, production is crystal clear. Hesitated giving a tribute album five stars but can't stop listening to this A+ version. I like it better than the original. Compare, for example, the two takes on "Mother." I find Ranestrane's version much more dynamic. May the gods of prog forgive me, but it's that way with every song. Sacrilege?!?!? Let the stoning begin.
