I disagree strongly.  Drowned is among my favorite studio Who songs, but I
haven't heard a live version played by the full band that comes close.  The
rhythm of the song turns into a very mechanical, monotonous march played
live, especially with Roger stomping around.  A lot of the intricacy from
the album version is lost.  Though the feel is completely different, I think
Pete gives it a whole new dimension when he plays it accoustically and it
works much better that way.

No comment.
