Wow...really wouldn't have expected this much dislike over this album.

I think it's one of the better solo albums. Far better than Profiles, IMHO. And by far a hell of a lot better than Rick Wrights ZEE outing. Now that's a dismal recording.

Nick's playing on Fictitious Sports is some of his best. When I first heard the album in the mid-80's it made me wonder what the hell Roger Waters was thinking when he mad the comment that Nick's playing at the time was not up to snuff during the Final Cut album...which was recorded not much later.

Always had a soft spot form Nick. Loved a lot of the production work he did for others like Gong, The Damned and Steve Hillage.

One of the true greats

I'm glad to say I had the opportunity of meeting Mr. Mason and had him sign my vinyl copy.

Does humor belong in music? Love this album. Just really great fun. This is a 4 from me.
