Meanwhile, The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains runs from May 13 – October 1, 2017 at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.

Being a Floyd fanatic I will obviously buy this. I have everything they have done since Ummagumma days - either as a group or solo. For me they are simply the most creative group the planet has produced so far. I don't care for the earlier stuff with Syd at all. You can rest assured there will be some controversial statements contained in this release.

Can't help feeling that at some point he is going to reveal what the other words are on the album cover that have been blacked out.

As the veterans here on MD know, I am a Beatle fanatic but not quite a fool yet! lol,,Yes J Man ,Pink Floyd to me are the perfect and complete band for certain ! You have no argument from me! Not exactly a Hits Top 40 band like the Beatles but a tremendously masterful band and that guitar sound from Gilmour !!!!! Also I do like Syd's contributions on The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and A Saucerful Of Secrets! Time to listen to Floyd's entire discography!QUOTE=Jerome;146145]Being a Floyd fanatic I will obviously buy this. I have everything they have done since Ummagumma days - either as a group or solo.

At the end of the day I did not buy this album. I listened to some stuff on YT and to be quite honest Mr Waters has had his day. It was nice while it lasted Roger but the thrill has gone baby.

and he has still held on to his grudge with Mr Gilmour for 40 odd years now...
the grumpy old man needs to get over it before its too late to do so!
