Not a nice thing to say - something five year old kids might do. I wonder what has happened to society that some of us have so much anger and hatred bottled up inside ...

^ I'll listen to it at least once, then we'll see. Based on the songs to date, I doubt I'll play it much. I much prefer the lockdown sessions.

Hi,

This is such a weird set of conversations and discussions.

There are many versions of this and that in classical music and for many years, it was the Conductor's take on the music that made it special for many of us ... and no one went out and thought that one conductor was better than the other or their version of this or that was better or worse. Comparing Karajan to Bernstein is ridiculous, and you won't exactly know how to detail the differences in the music that make them special. (Hint!!! Neither will I!). But it will sound great anyway.

Here we are, almost 50 years later, and we're stuck on something that was done then, and no one can redo it differently ... well, I like that guy from Tool's (gosh ... not even sure now!) versions of the PF material ... that was really cool and enjoyable ... but to say that RW's versions of this or that are not right, is wrong. 

It's a new day, and time, and a different take that might give the piece of music some different emphasis ... but the sad side of it? We've already condemned everything to death and threw stones ... like we weren't sinners ourselves.

It's sad, because if you were an artist, you might want to do something different 50 years later ... heck, Bob Dylan does it, so why not Roger Waters?

It just shows how we have become completely disrespectful of artists, not that it did not happen in their time, but for something that has lasted at least that long and is still being appreciated, I think we should cut the artist some slack! Not the vitriol that is visible here. It's like folks are comparing apples to oranges ... !!!
Music is not just for listening ... it is for LIVING ... you got to feel it to know what's it about! Not being told!

You cannot improve on a classic - tho this is a thoughtful re-imagining of the original. I find it OK but not great.

I have tried to write a review, but for some reason the site won't let me publish it, so I stick with the star rating. 2 and half to 3. Musically disappointing.

Musically, I could see myself doing something like it (although maybe slightly more exciting, I don't want people falling asleep) and as it's been a busy week for me, this album isn't helping. I'm a huge fan of poetry (even named after a famous one) but please, make it good

Listened to The Flaming Lips with Henry Rollins version of DSOTM today, it's quite good.

OK, I just heard it in Spotify. It's not so terrible, but I don't expect I'll listen to it again, let alone buy it. I see absolutley no reason to listen to this new one instead of the original (or the live at Wembley, or even the PULSE version).

I've not heard the whole thing yet - and certainly not in one shot (don't intend to either).

All I've heard are the bits published over the last three months (I guess that now amounts to 2/3 of the album) and will try to listen to the rest at least once, but I doubt I'll be listening a second time to anything or parts and even less buy it.

Waters had balls to do what he did , but ultimately, it's a failure.
