Roger's new album

Post by JeffX » Wed Jan 28, 2015 12:44 am

Do you think we'll actually see it this year? I wonder if it's going to be based off of the "Heartland" album that was rumored years ago or will it be something else?

I thought we would see it in 2015, but Roger seems to have his hands full with the Amused To Death SACD 5.1 and all the Possible Wall releases like the DVD and broadway show incarnation. Personally I would really like to see him distance himself a bit from anything that has to do with The Wall. I need something new.................

I love The Wall and it's one of my favorite albums. I agree though as I have his Berlin performance, the live edition that was released years ago, and the studio version. He toured with for several years. I know it's his baby, but he's a great song writer and could be doing so much more.

Yep, I agree. Legally it is his baby and although he's largely responsible for the writng of it, my personal favorite songs are the ones that David influenced. I don't want to go as far as to say that he's "milked" it , but its getting close for me. Selfishly, because he is such as great writer I would like to see him pursue another solo record as aggresively as he's does any Wall project. And who knows? maybe he has all the material ready to go and he just needs to find the time to record it.

I get the feeling that his Heartland project won't really be an epic thing like The Wall was. His past solo albums gave me the impression that he simply doesn't have the drive to do that kind of thing anymore. Part of it is having a good idea that just magically works (which he had for The Wall), but the other part is working hard to turn the music into a piece that will devastate the world because it's so original and unique. It's something Roger used to do like clockwork, but it's been 30 years since he last had a go at it.

I would love to see Roger do something in the same vein as Pro's & Con's. A concept that has less to do with social or political issues, but rather the human condition. I love that record.

I'm definitely going to buy his new album, but I'm much more interested in Dave's album. I get the feeling that this Homeland or whatever he calls it is simply going to be more "my Dad died in the war, war is bad, everyone stop fighting, I hate Israel, oi - Neil Young - stop doing concerts in Israel because I don't like it.... blah blah blah".

To be honest I'd rather see The Wall Live Blu-ray hit my doormat and see an exhaustive remastering of his back-catalogue and possibly 5.1 mixes.
