Track of the Day: 'General Hospital'

Past Tracks"Cardinal is back!" I'm not sure if this is a cheer being shouted from the rooftops of Rolling Stone HQ or if this will get heavy rotation on Friday Night Videos (that show is still on right?), but there is a small and faithful community of fans that has been waiting since 1994 for the day that songwriters Richard Davies and Eric Matthews would team up once again. Well that day has finally arrived and this dreamy and elegant piano led track is a fine result of their reunion. Making us feel as though we've been dropped in halfway through a concept album draughted by Roger Waters, or perhaps a lost song from The Bee Gees epic, Odessa, though on a bit more of a baritone vocal tip.
