It's absolutely beautiful.

Doesn't stop me loving the SS version though, they're just trying to do very different things.

I don't know. To me their cover seemed to deny/destroy the meaning of the song. This one has a slightly different take than the Floyd version, but I think still remains very true to the sentiments expressed in the song, focusing on the unreality rather than the detachment. The Scissor Sisters version seemed to try to turn it into ambient, which for me betrayed the meaning of the song.

Mmm. That's nice :)

I think I'm a little spoilt having just been listening to Eddi Reader, but I definitely approve.
