    Bet he finds a way to work in his Father, and The War.

    Creative genius maybe 1977-1980 but even then it's debatable

    Us, Them, Daddy and The War was, in fact, the original title but the record company talked Roger down.

    You have a better chance of a Roger spitting on a fan.

    So is this actually going to be a new album or just a "reimagining" of older work?

    So is it a new "concept" or a reworking of DSOTM?

    Edit: sorry, posted same question as above poster.

    Nobody knows.
    Could be a tour theme for all we know.
    The only thing that has been mentioned as news is a multi-year Roger Waters' tour, starting in May, with a new stage show.

    For those that don't like The Wall, it maybe a good time to catch him, as only a couple of those tunes (if any) maybe in the set.

    Why all the whining? The bitching and complaining about Waters is getting tired. If I have to listen to my family and neighbors discuss politics I can certainly handle anything Waters has to say. I look forward to any type of commercial releases he chooses to do. Enough ranting for now. Off to listen to F.E.A.R. ;)

    "Creative genius"? What modesty.

    I thought he wrote most of 1983's The Final Cut, too. So maybe 1976-1986. The debatable bit is, I think, 1972-1975.

    Your opinion might have a scintilla of validity if you told us who you thought was a creative genius.

    To me at least The Final Cut is more of a Roger Waters solo album than a Pink Floyd creation, I know the opinions on this can be polar opposite of others. Animals and The Wall to me is Roger's prime creative output as Pink Floyd the band. Pre Animals is still very much a group vibe. "Creative Genius of Pink Floyd" just comes off the wrong way when there is clearly different eras of creative peaks for all members of PF.

    At their best, Pink Floyd was a team effort. When Roger assumed the mantle of dominant "creative genius", they lost their way.

    I really really really want this to be a new album of original material, but it won't be.

    IMO, without Gilmour and Wright, Pink Floyd wouldn't have been successful.

    Waters just bums me out.
    they should have included a razor blade with THE WALL and THE FINAL CUT

    That would be Judas Priest.

    Saw Roger on the Wall tour in Finland in 2011, automatic purchase of new album if it contains new material.
