Free Four is the shit, I love this song.

It's tied with Stay as my favorite on the album.

I'm gonna vote Free Four. I like both but Wots is the underdog here and it's truly a beautiful song!

It was tough. Both are great songs. I went for Wot's...Uh The Deal in the end. Free Four just makes me feel happy in a very paradoxical way when you consider the lyrics. I think it's the clapping.

It's definitely the intro.

One, two, FREE FOUR!

I think it's the intro AND the clapping.

And maybe the melody too.

Damn, it's all so good.

Parts of OBC are somewhat growing on me. Free Four is one of those parts. Goodbye, Deal.

Not if you don't have More, Atom Heart Mother, or Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking (yes, it's Roger, but I prefer it over the Wall on some days). I find those more interesting, and there are only about 5 good songs on this thing, with 2 of them being "great" (the two battling it out right now).

If you're a completist, sure. Otherwise, there's plenty of other stuff to download (or, I suppose, buy) beforehand.

The only band so far I've been a completist of is U2. Beatles? Hate their early work. Bowie? Some very weird and out there stuff. Floyd? Maybe down the road.
