    General CommentNot typical Pink Floyd. But I find it very soothing/relaxing.

    General CommentDoes anyone seem to notice that every Pink Floyd instrumental has to have something spoken in the background? The only thing I could make out on this one is: "Never again!"

    General Commentif you think about it, the songs either side of it could be applied to cryogenics. Terminal Frost

    General Commentit's all in the name: terminal frost. the word terminal means the end of something, and the word frost is associated with cold. now, the coldness that could be referenced to in the song could refer to one's attitude toward the world/life.... so what it now means is the end of the cold / feelings of death. stop looking at the music and its aural aesthetics, instead look at the movement, as in a picture. the song clearly displays something that begins depressing, slow, cold, deathlike, then moves on to the climax which is the sax part, signifying a release from the cold.

    General CommentWow. i was going to say exactly what you said shasta, if i didn't read the comments first. hehe. I completely agree that this song is a landscape of imagery communicated through tension and release caused by timbre and layering of instruments. Isn't it so relaxing after the tension uplifts? i think so...

    General Commenti don't know why but this song i could EASILY picture in the David Bowie movie, the Labyrinth...it just seems like it could fit perfect for that movie?
