    Wetton routinely donated his fee for such projects to charity.

    That's impressive.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Animals is my favorite Pink Floyd as well, but I really dislike this cover and listening to Dogs, I'm not convinced.
    Perhaps if I see it in the thrift-store, I might take it.

    I think I prefere the Lamb tribute from Rewiring Genesis.

    I don't know, I'm always very suspicious of these versions, especially due to the hype around the stellar participation and therefore the high expectations... However, after a few listens and while I think that the "Sheep" version is absolute crap (a pity because for a long time it was my favourite track on the original), both "Dogs" and "Pigs - Three different kinds" are very damn good, possibly because while staying quite close to the originals as far as the framework is concerned, the "stellar participation" really does shine on both of these tracks..

    Not really a "reimagining."

    I did see The Who playing Quadrophenia at the Royal Albert Hall with Roger supplemented with Eddie Vedder (The a rocker) and Tom from Kasabian (The Mod), and it worked well in the theatrical setting as you point out. I wouldn’t need a Quadrophenia reimagined album though.

    I fail to see how you could 're-imagine' this when its perfect as is. Shrug. No interest at all. In fact - you could put Gilmour on it again - and I'd pass.

    I spoke with Vinnie Moore about his participation in this. I'll post that interview when it goes live next week.

    That one was really cool, and tried to do a few different things with the source material. I've got a copy of it somewhere, signed by Nick.

    Shortly after it came out, I was fortunate enough to go to a live gig they did in a Nashville bar where they performed most of the album. It was a blast.

    There are parts, especially the keyboards (without excluding the guitar work), where I think that there is truely an attempt to add something quite new; therefore, for me, a good and interesting reimagining.

    Again, the framework is very similar, but there is an infusion of something "new", which makes it very grabbing or interesting. And again again, this is only as far as "Dogs" and "Pigs (TDK)" are concerned; "Sheep" is indeed the only one that I would say is very different from the original (therefore the only reimagining?), but it's an absolute mess, and I'm very sorry, but not even Arthur Brown's growls can resurrect a "dog" like this (AFAIC). it ain't "The Tell-tale Heart" by anyone's stretch of imagination, not even Edgar Allan's...).

    Cheers

    I love the addition of brass and strings.
