I didn't really notice Mason's drumming. Makes me wonder whether or not it's a disadvantage being a musician when listening to other people's music? Like a top chef always knows what's wrong with the food when they're in someone else's restaurant when other people there are just enjoying it.Right from the very start with the dodgy time-keeping by Mason it's difficult to listen to, and compared to 'Meddle' it's a bit of a shambles. I don't know much about the history of this album, but since it was a movie soundtrack, perhaps they were short on recording time.
Anyway, this track came up in my Youtube comments just now so it's a good time to post it;
