I love the Trial.

I think you are right though that the concept took over the songwriting. The Final Cut and Amused To Death are much more thought out albums songwise.

Precisely my feelings. The music is sacrificed at the altar of Waters' oh so sacred concept.

Probably won't hear anything for a few hours - she woke me up about 2 hours ago to let me know she was about to leave for hospital.
i'm sorry, i hope she's okay. it's her pancreatitis, right? hopefully this'll fix it (if that's possible, i know little about it)

i know how you feel, since my dad's in the hospital as well.

To me the album would have been better if they put the songs together and made something more solid. There are great ideas but nothing is made of them for the most part.

It's not actually directly related to the pancreatitis, but to something else the doctors found last time she was in hospital. I'm not entirely clear on the details, but it's something to do with internal scar tissue that's creating pressure.

And how's your father doing?

Isn't there some kind of dispute between them? And aren't fans pretty split on them too?
