  • oh no...
  • Best Floyd song, hands down...
  • The most effective use of the inward scream on any Pink Floyd recording.
  • Raphael "Baker Street" Ravenscroft on the sax!

  • Relax Relax :)
  • Maravillosa canción.

  • As o.k. as I think this album is, I always get an empty feeling whenever the sax solo plays, like that feeling you get when you finish a good book.
  • my tears evaporate...
