Music From The Body

While i was incredibly glad to have a very nice forum member send me a copy on tape, it is almost certainly the weakest album in my opinion. Where there are songs, the songs do work though so its certainly not all bad

Next worst one would be Radio Kaos in my opinion, put simply i can't stand the music to it

I vote Identity. With the exception of Confusion and Seems We Were Dreaming, virtually everything on the album is unlistenable; even Music For The Body can be listened to in the background for some ambience, but Identity can't even be elevator music without embarassing the listener for being associated with it.

At least Profiles has a truly catchy lead single (Lie For A Lie) and most of the instrumental album is well-arranged and memorable.

How do I go about obtaining Zee and Nick Mason's stuff?

I was curious to know if somebody here might post the songs on Youtube or something. I know a lot of people put music on there with just a blank background or just one picture and call it a video. So far Youtube hasn't pulled the plug on that and all I want to do is have a listen.

There's a video of Mason/Fenn/Gilmour collaboration on "Lie For A Lie" on youtube. I watched it just the other day.
