This is gunna be sooo good. Cheers Dave! Saved me again.

Gotta give On the Run the boot here, pretty easy first up, but from then on it's gunna be bloody hard.

What do we all want to win? For me it's either Time or Us and Them. Haven't decided yet. If Brain Damage/Eclipse were joined then I'd vote for that. But they're not. Carry on!

On the Run is a no-brainer, but after that, this will become impossible.

Rooting for Breathe.

The Great Gig In The Sky is the worst, most unlistenable song in Pink Floyd's entire catalogue.

Haha, I wondered about that connection for ages, but then I realised nah, probably not.

Is it not the best ending to an album ever?

Nothing on Ummagumma has that painfully hideous wailing.

No, no it's not. I've never met a single person offline who can stand more than a minute or two of that song. I've been surprised to see that some people here like it. I wish it were an instrumental.

Well, neither have I but I don't know of anyone that is as appreciative of music (or at least Pink Floyd) as I am. The wailing is perfectly crafted and Rick's work is genious.

Personally, the wailing makes me wish I were deaf. It utterly butchers the entire song. Any good qualities the instrumentation may have just fade into irrelevancy under the weight of "my ears, my poor ears!"
