    I've had enough time to cogitate and ruminate over the worthiness of the new Pink Floyd "Discovery" box set. The bottom line is: is this any better than than the "Oh, By The Way" set released a couple of years back? The answer to that is simple: no.

    This is a short song dealing with the topic of addiction. Listen to those rock vocals, eh?
  88. That Is The Way It Is 2006 - Rough Mix 27 May 20062006/05/27
