Cedars of Lebanon - Roger Waters

Whenever I listen to Cedars of Lebanon I think of Roger Waters. That song is practically 'channeling' him. Musically sparse. Bitter and twisted and hard to interpret lyrics. Reminds me a lot of It's a Miracle.

Yeah, you're right. the song would fit on the "amused to death" album.

Funny you mention this...

I heard Roger Waters in Bono's singing in NLOTH 2

Yeah I did notice this as well. Partly because of Bono's more restrained, low register vocal, but also in the 3rd person angle of the lyrics. I've always wondered what Roger Waters thought of U2...

An excellent point- yes I hear the similarities. I bet U2 Station memebers don't come up with intelligent perceptions like these!
