I'm not voting for Free Four.... it's very San Tropez like, despite a good little solo, and but marginally better than Lucifer Sam.

Now this one's for Axver.... I know you find The Final Cut (song) boring, but Set the Controls is no more 'exciting', really, when you think about it. Why is it better? It's something I can't explaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaain.

Cymbaline needs to stick around for another round, so Lucifer Sam for me, too.

The Final Cut, for the reasons I outlined in the previous thread.

But Set The Controls has great atmosphere and ... I can't explaaaaaaaain. It's just good. Not going to appear on any of my lists of favourite Floyd songs, but I like to hear it, especially the Pompeii version.

Cymbaline. Pretty but slightly boring compared to the rest.

Sorrow. Good song but not on par with classic Pink Floyd.

I'm learning about album production (looking to become an album producer), I have to say Comfortably Numb and Set Controls are the two most wonderfully produced Floyd tracks. So whoever is voting for them, stop and appreciate that master production.

Good to see you back Screwtape.

See I can't tell when it comes to production.

Absolutely.

When I listen to any music, I listen to it with an ear to what, if anything, I'd do differently if I had produced the song myself. Usually I'd change the drums, or cut different samples in if it's a hip hop track, maybe a different mix...I can pick at least a few things out of 99% of all music I hear. The other 1% of songs are absolutely perfect already, and if they were changed in the slightest, that change would only serve to reduce that song's greatness. Both those songs you mentioned, Screwtape, are in that 1%. I hope both at least get to the last five (although I'll be shocked if CN doesn't win the whole enchilada).

Oh yeah, I voted for Lucifer Sam. Cymbaline is fantastic.
