Too much Waters, not enough Gilmour.
on 27 February 2001
As a Pink Floyd fan who stands in the middle ground of whether Waters is Floyd or Gilmour is, then I'm afraid this offering doesnt help me in any way to make a decision. It only adds to my belief that one without the other is only half of a bigger picture. It may be true that Waters wrote the larger part of Floyds material, but I feel that Gilmour was an anchor to him that stopped him from going on for too long, as I'm afraid happens on the one new track on this offering 'Each Small Candle'.
I also find the interview with Waters in the inner booklet just too sad for words, he can't even bring himself to use the name Pink Floyd, he simply refers to them as 'another band'. As for when he tells us that the band and him would join hands before these gigs and shout 'Genuine Love', please give me the good old hate ridden days of The Wall any time.
Only for the most hardened of Floyd fans.
