Terminal Frost

Album: A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987)
  • songfacts ®
  • Artistfacts ®
  • One of three instrumentals on A Momentary Lapse of Reason, this is the last one and also the longest. The rhythm tracks were laid down using a drum machine, as Nick Mason did not feel very confident in his drumming at the time. The saxophone parts were performed by Tom Scott and John Helliwell of Supertramp. >>

  • Fulvio from Naples, ItalyThe saxophone played by Tom Scott in Terminal Frost also remember me some atmosphere from Joni Mitchel 80's album. One question: what kind of guitar played David Gilmour in Terminal Frost ? Someone recognizes it? Does not seems his usual instrument ... Thx!
  • Mike from Matawan, NjOne of the only decent things by PF post Roger Waters...and the only reason for that is that it sounds like a combination of 'Great Gig in the Sky' and parts of 'Us and Them'.

    Just about everything that Gilmore attempted with PF sounds so....sanitized. Musically and technically competent but with absolutely no soul.

Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"They're Playing My Song

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
