    Default Roger Waters - Is this the life we really want?

    Gents, new album with short teaser formally announced at rogerwaters.com
    In a previous interview for ATD in surround launch, Roger said he thought his new album in 5.1 will sound great, so fingers crossed for it to become reality.
    No release date yet, just "coming soon"

    Isn't it the only new material in the last 20 years? Or did I miss something?

    And opera and four of five new songs (leaving Beirut, to kill the child, hello I love you, each small candle, the ballad of Jean Charles de menezes, clear crystal Brooks...)

    Other than the opera, which I don't care for, did the others get a formal release? Are they on disc?

    The first three were issued as singles, each small candle appears on a best of, the ballad in the last live iteration of the wall and Brooks will likely appear on the new record

    I was forgetting about flickering flame and lost boys calling, both appearing on flickering flame compilation together with each small candle.
    Lost boys calling is a good song with a nice eddie van Halen solo (if my memory is not failing), but the solo was cut from this release

    He could (and hopefully will sometime down the road) release a compilation of all his studio recordings between ATD and this new record.

    Nigel Godrich is producing this record, and the clip released sounds more like Radiohead than anything Roger's ever done, so this could be quite different which could be good. Has Godrich ever produced anything in 5.1? I would imagine that whether or not this is released in surround will be as much to his discretion as the artist.

    Someone must have had that idea before, as the first compilation is called Flickering Flame - The Solo Years Volume I !

    Yes, but that was more a "greatest hits" compilation, including material from the other solo albums. I'm talking about a more "odds & sods" collection.

    New clip, fantastic teaser! Now I have higher hopes for the album (although I'm a bit suspicious of not having listened to any snippet of Roger singing yet)

    That is excellent! To me, this feels like a return to his Pros and Cons days. It's my favourite album of his so I seriously hope that we're getting something in the same vein and with a 5.1 mix.

    It may be premature to do so, but I'm going into full Snood mode here.

    I'm really looking forward to both the new album (hopefully in 5.1) and the tour. Rog may be a cantankerous old sod, but he sure has written some great music and the other tours of his I've seen have all been great.

    Yep, AFAIK, all of Roger Waters' tours since 1999 have been mixed in Quadraphonic surround sound.
    The live Quadraphonic mix at the Wall shows was the best live sound I have ever heard, so I'm expecting nothing but the best sound out of Roger's new tour.

    More news coming in today: http://teamrock.com/news/2017-04-20/...um-in-25-years
    Album will be released on June 2nd and the formats mentioned in the article do not include any surround.
    Preorders will start tomorrow so there's a little bit of hope

    Default Re: Roger Waters - Is this the life we really want?

    There's a real opportunity here to do something striking with the mix with the initial release now that HD and surround sound formats have matured.

    Imagine if Amused To Death could have hit the world in the form of the 5.1 remix. The cinematic presentation there really adds to it and makes it stand up as a more complete and unique album as a whole. I'm not suggesting that suddenly puts it at the level of Animals or anything like that (IMHO). Just that it was obviously an intentional element of the overall presentation and it was initially released with that element stepped on by the then current level of technology with release formats.

    Pretty different music, but the same experience is true with King Crimson THRAK. If the world could have been hit over the head with the 5.1 remix people would have been much more properly floored!

    These two examples I mentioned are listening experiences that are ONLY possible to deliver and experience with full surround sound. These are cutting edge surround mixes even for surround sound.

    If this new album is presented like THAT it might really be something!

    Has Godrich ever produced something with a 5.1 mix? It feels like this could have been his call not to do one.
