Just a quick word from me: Thank you to everyone who participated in this competition, whilst it has dragged in places and the thread participation has been average in the finals, it's been good fun...

and now it comes down to Time and Comfortably Numb, I'm listening to both now.

tough choice.

It's also a bit humouros I reckon that most of us agree Shine on You Crazy Diamond should be in the final.

I'm voting for Comfortably Numb here... it is indeed magical and deserves to be here... but there is just something otherworldy about Time.

You get an awesome four minutes or so of fantastic melancholic vocals and lyrics coupled with two mindbending solos, and then you get a reprise of Breathe.

Pink Floyd knew how to treat their fans on an album.

Comfortably Numb

It of course has that killer guitar solo, but as a whole, I think Time is ahead of it. Just the production, with the idea of putting the clocks at the beginning for sound effect, was just way, way ahead of its time. And you've got both Gilmour and Wright on vocals. Just an absolute masterpiece all around.

I voted off Time. I love it, but the solo in CN is just the best. I can't vote it out.

Cheers for all the Python references throughout COBL_04! Some great lines amongst em!

Is it just me, or does it not say whether you are voting something off, or for the winner here?

It doesn't say, but it's been the same thing all along. You vote for the one you want voted off.

Voting off Comfortably Numb. It's good but overrated. I love Time.

I voted off Time. Both are great songs. I just feel CN is the pinnacle of David Gilmour's career. It is just stunningly beautiful though Set Controls is the best Pink Floyd song in my opinion.

Thanks for running this COBL.

Comfortably Numb in my opinion is the crowning achievement of modern music, and the perfect fusion of the individual talents of Waters and Gilmour. Time, for all of its brilliance, as well as the searing guitar work, cannot compete with it.

Time.

IMO, it shouldn't have been the winner off DSotM (Us & Them, FTMFW), and isn't in Numb's league.
