Oh, and the music reminds me of something from Rocky IV. The lyrics are OK.

There is nothing clear about it.

Greatest guitar solo & outro ever in all of Floyd's history.

It's a great song, but I don't hold it in the same regard as Shine On..., Sheep, Comfortably Numb, or any other Floyd epics of that ilk.

Comfortably Numb not only has the best solo ever, it has to go and have two of them. Imagining Dave on top of a giant wall makes it better.

The guitar in the High Hopes outro is buried so far in the mix you can barely hear it. And even if you crank it up, it's still something Gilmour has done 50 times before.

But I'm splitting hairs. It's an OK song. Just 3 minutes too long and not nearly as good as the rest.

High Hopes.

I was watching Roger Waters In the Flesh DVD last night. It's pretty good stuff... except he and his band, consisting of about 10 people, absolutely butcher Wish You Were Here. Terrible rendition. Also I think the lead guitarist loves himself a fair bit. Up to Shine On (if you play the frist eight parts, why not play part nine as well? ) with Set the Controls and the rest to come.

Still holding hope for a reunion... :Pray: which reminds me... what's your dream Pink Floyd setlist??
Yeah, no-one liked Doyle (the guitarist)...not even Roger! Dave Kilminster is much better. I don't have time to come up with a dream reunion setlist, but all I can say is that it would be extremely unrealistic to hope for anything from The Final Cut, AMLOR or Division Bell. Dave wouldn't want to play anything from TFC (and Rick certainly wouldn't want to either) and Roger wouldn't want to play anything from the last two.

Guys, guys... I didn't even mean it really when I said this...

Echoes.
I was just trying to mimic Screwtape if you can scroll up and see the green wink smiley. That said, I disagree completely that High Hopes and Set The Controls are the most boring songs here!

Let's see... ranking of what's left...

1. Time / Breathe(reprise)
2. Comfortably Numb
3. Dogs
4. High Hopes
5. Wish You Were Here
6. Set The Controls
7. Echoes

I guess something like that. Echoes would be higher if it didn't have the pointless collage of sounds in the middle.

I agree. Only Echoes is superior to this one.

Speaking of which... is there a shortened version of Echoes without the whale sounds in the middle? Was there a shorter version on that compilation Echoes?

Yeah, Snowy's fucking awesome too. I could listen to him play Set the Controls on repeat.

While we're talking about guitars and such, check out this guy's interpretation of High Hopes:

Love it!

EDIT: His video for Marooned is also amazing.

High Hopes, after hearing Set the Controls live last year it's become one of my favorites

by the way the latin site of msn.com anounced yesterday that Pink Floyd are reuniting for some charity shows later this year

Gotta go with Lemel here. Dogs, Pigs and Sheep are three of the best outros I've ever heard.
