Animals is brilliant. Have you ever read Animal Farm by George Orwell? Similar sort of idea in Animals. These songs aren't about farm animals at all... You have mail, by the way.

Have you seen this, LMP? Sheep synched up with Saving Private Ryan. It's awesome!

Have you heard Echoes synched up with 2001: A Space Odyssey?

1. Roger Waters - Amused To Death
2. Roger Waters - The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking
If we were talking about any projects that the various members have been involved in I'd put those two Waters solo albums at the top followed by this unknown classic:

3. Ca Ira



The Overture is so beautiful especially at the 50 second mark. Aw, Opera...the only thing less appreciated than prog on Interference.

This is all very interesting. Isn't there also some reported synchronicity between DSOTM and The Wizard of Oz?

I'm torrenting it right now, along with The Wall and Alice in Wonderland:

Ça Ira is lovely. I would have put it up there myself, but most people wouldn't really consider it a Roger Waters solo album as such. The Overture is brilliant - capable of shutting up all the people who think the only thing Roger's capable of is writing good lyrics. And In The Bushes Where They Survive sends shivers up my spine at the end...when there's the long, droning brass/strings in the background with the marching drums and flute on top. To The Windward Isles is just about the most fun you'll ever have when you're listening to an opera. "Equality, fraternity, and liberty are not just words after all!"

One of Roger's crowning achievements.

I might buy Ca Ira, Leaving Beirut, and Hello (I Love You) off iTunes tonight.

I'm in a big Roger mood right now.

Keep in mind that Ça Ira is an opera...in the full classical sense. So if you don't like classical music, you probably won't like it. Hello (I Love You) is a nice song, although a bit of a throwaway like most soundtrack songs are.

I love it that you're in a Roger mood right now, though. Look at my top artists for this week... http://www.last.fm/user/dysprosium/

I guess I'll torrent them then, 16 bucks for any album is pretty steep for me.

Roger is definitely pwning everyone else in your Last.Fm.

It's really like Screech wailing on Horshack, just a mismatch in every sense.

Oh, and is the In The Flesh live double album on the US iTunes? If so, you should buy Each Small Candle from that one. Great song. I wish Roger would have played it on his current tour.

Yes, it is. I'm glad it's the full album now, it used to only be partial.

Roger is so much more than a rock artist. You could tell in stuff like Great Gig and The Trial that he had opera in him. Roger is one of the greatest musical minds of the 20th Century. I think people will recognize that in 40 or 50 years. Amused To Death, Dark Side or The Wall might be considered his masterpeices but Ca Ira deserves mention. Hear Ye, The Fugitive King, But The Maquis and To Freeze In The Dead Of Night are my other favorites off that masterpeice. I'm really not sure what I'd prefer: a new Roger Waters solo album or opera.

It's one of my favourite live albums. The DVD itself is

Oh, I didn't see your earlier question...yes, I've seen the Echoes synch up! It's great. Fits it perfectly.
