An incredibly epic song by Pink Floyd
. It varies from thirteen minutes (the Best of cd) to around 27 minutes (the live David Gilmour
version). From the opening solo, where the guitar is just lovely, to David and Richard Wright
(R.I.P.) (or whatever various live keyboardist) trading solos, to the strangely beautiful echo noises in the middle, and then the incredible bass swell, all the way to the end, where the guitar sounds like drops of golden fire from heaven, this is, musically, a stunning vista with much variance. Roger Water
's beautiful lyrics are just bloody incredible.
