I meant what exactly do you disagree with in what I said there. 

Nick thinks it's brilliant?! Good for him. Is this supposed to change my opinion?!

If you liked the album, it's fine, not the issue here. 

It contradicts your  "this is disrespectful to the other three PF members" remark, doesn't it? One passed away, the other one probably doesn't like it, the third one loves it. 

Even knowing that Nick likes the redux version, I still think the same thing. Roger treats the original DSOTM like it's his achievement, and not the band's (4 musicians). 

Listening to the redux version made me miss Rick and David especially. Rick that sings on two songs, wrote most of Us & Them with Roger (his lyrics) and Great Gig in the Sky was his song. 

The magic is gone on the redux version. On the original album, Roger, David and Rick sing. That's one great thing about it, they complement each other greatly. On the redux version, just a grumpy old man, at least that's how it feels. 

(For example, the main reason why i disliked Dream Theater's version of DSOTM was that only LaBrie does the singing, and it does not have three vocals interaction like the original album does). 


At this time he was pulling the strings in the band, pretty much like Frank Zappa did on almost all his releases. That doesn't mean that these releases would have worked had Frank played all the instruments. Similarily, DSOTM Redux is a completely different album - it's not even in the same league as the original. RW has himself aid that it's not, so I don't get the constant negativity in the comments, suggesting that it takes away from the original. It IS "DSOTM in grumpy old man mode". Most negative reviews read like it was meant to replace the original, which it's not.

^The REDUX was meant to be a companion piece, or a re-imagining i believe. Still, I'm not a fan of that style of music, doesn't matter what it is, I'm not a fan. It could've been a completely different album, not a re-imagining of DSOTM, but it still wouldn't have gotten a good rating from me

'Cause it's only knock and know all, but I like it...

Working on a New Album, might be one huge track |Bandcamp

^ Sure, that's totally fair! I've given it three stars here, and I would not recommend it to anyone, nor will I listen to it a lot.
