    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.
