Used to listen to this CD many a time while taking a nap on the couch when it was first released.

A very prescient song, given what is happening in the world today.

Its not quite that bad but definitely not one of the best tracks on the album.

Pink Floyd without Roger? Yuck...Paul and Ringo might as well get back together and call themselves the Beatles.

 
I've always refereed to this as "dry Floyd" - without Waters.

On the suny side there are peaceful sleepers in another time zone. Anyways it was a catalyst in my case.

Yes , this happens because the American spirit that is invading Europe right now. Muslims = Terrorists (I don't think that barbarity). So the 99% of refugees are muslims, for Europe is a dangerous invasion. For people with a brain inside the head this is a fucking barbarity, a crime, an uncompassion method. The history is full of refugees with protection. When we are more advanced than never, right now, the behaviour of the goverments are the opposite of the people opinion. Go out, Europe gobernators! Go to hell fucking idiots! 

 
Unfortunately, this sentiment is not unique to America, nor was it the only place that was happening before the Syrian refugee crisis.  I agree that it is a horrible trend, but don't blame America alone on this one.

I'm thrilled to announce that Mr. Gilmour has decided to give every last quid of his earnings to the homeless!!!

The sentiment might be worthy, but the music doesn't do much for me. A shadow of former greatness.

First listen to Pink Floyd in my '57 Ford Coup on a 4/8 track tape player a loong time ago.  This song resonates well with me.
