Interesting to note that the back cover of the CD indicates that the album comprises 15 distinct tracks but as noted above it is, in reality, just 6 with the Roger Waters and the Bleeding Heart 'ten element' material presented as one 24m26s piece.

"The real problem is that there is no problem. It goes back, well, you know the whole When the Wind Blows thing? The situation is, is that Virgin wanted to release the soundtrack, and in order to do so, CBS or EMI made him sign a piece of paper on the case saying essentially, if you want to put this soundtrack out on another label, not to interfere with Pink Floyd being Pink Floyd, or pursuing any activities in the name of Pink Floyd, which Roger signed and agreed to. So, although there is still a court case, it really is all over." - Gilmour, 1987

Well, My Swedish friend hasn't answered me yet...

Perhaps it's too many fish or he's putting together a cabinet.

I finally got this on CD lately and 1) I liked the non-Waters songs (I knew some of them before), 2) I think Roger's part is great. Towers of Faith is one of his best solo songs ever, Folded Flags is nice and the instrumental parts are atmospheric and moving. All in all, it's a surprisingly great soundtrack.

Well, it took about a month for it to arrive, but hey, good things come to those who wait I guess.
