5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 29 Sep 2008
By Nick Huckle VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Superb production values, as you'd expect from the Pink Floyd camp. Both sound on the CDs and sound and visuals on the DVDs and DVDs are fautless.
The band appear relaxed and play as a well knit unit throughout, clearly enjoying themselves.
Gilmour's guitar playing, as ever, is precise and dynamic. Perhaps even better than on his "Remember The Night" DVD. He's not a guitarist from the fast and flash camp, but he always plays the right note at the right time with the right tone. I lost count of the shivers he sent down my spine. Most impressive of all though is the fact that this was the only show the band played with a string section. The strings are used magnificently. They don't intrude on any number, but always compliment the songs perfectly. I've had this CD/DVD package for three days now but have already watched the show twice as well as listening to the CDs twice. I think that's nearly 12 hours in all.

Sadly this show is also one of the last, if not the last, recording of a performance by Richard Wright. On the DVD he appears to be really at ease and enjoying himself. A craftsman of the highest order. He will be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Echoes 1 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This seemed like a pretty competent live album, especially if you start with disc 1 and its replication of the 'On An Island' album. From that album 'Take a Deep Breath' is pretty powerful.

But like a lot of other people, I bought this because I love Pink Floyd and I was keen to hear some old favourites, hence disc 2. 'Shine On...' is slightly different, more mellow (if that is possible) but more interesting after two previous live renditions on the last two Floyd albums.

However, if you are a Floyd fan then you need to buy this album for another classic, 'Echoes'. Quite simply, it is stunning, from Rick Wright's opening keyboards, to the vocals, Gilmour's funky guitar, the ambient section and then the return with Gilmour showing why he is the greatest guitar player in the world.

As if that wasn't enough, watching the concert on DVD only adds to the occassion of this magnificent song.

Oh yes, and after that there is an emotional rendition of 'Great Day for Freedom' although I do beg as to why Jon Carin's piano and the orchestra seem to dominate the sound over any keyboards Rick plays. Gilmour's solo on the other hand is majestic, and likewise on the final track 'Comfortably Numb'. Although, it's been done before, there is still something unique about this version and its particularly poignant on the DVD when you see Rick singing Waters' vocals.

4.0 out of 5 stars ummm. packaging nightmare 30 Sep 2008
By Me
Format:Audio CD
This is not a criticism of the music, nothing wrong there at all, but the packaging. The discs are stored in tight cardboard sleeves and are terrible to get out if you are not careful there others can fall out by accident whilst you're trying to extract another. The cardboard has already ripped on mine. It's so fiddley and badly designed. They really could have done better designing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just go and buy it! 29 Sep 2008
By Simon
Format:Audio CD
This set is worth the price of admission just to hear Dave dust off Fat Old Sun, which was a shameful omission from PF's Echoes collection. A beautiful melody which is played acoustically but just when you think it's over Dave plays a blistering electric solo. Just awesome!

5.0 out of 5 stars SHEER CLASS - SUPERB ALBUM 23 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
David Gilmour once again shows his incredible talent, by collating an exceptional live set, that will delight both Floyd fans and those(if any)who lean to his solo work. Poignantly, this album features Rick on keyboards, and also vocals (he solo's on Comfortably Numb, covering Roger's pieces)so is a lasting memory as his last recording.

Now,what makes this album so great, is not only the superb balance of songs over the Floyd era (from Astronomy, Echoes, Dark Side, WYWH through The Wall and ending up with Division Bell, and the best of his more recent solo album "On an Island", but the production quality and final arrangement are amazing for a live album.

The Floyd tracks are perfectly reproduced, with the exception of "Shine On" which starts as per the original, but the chorus is simply David, Guitar and Piano - it works beautifully!. Comfortably Numb is probably even better than the "Pulse" version, with Gilmour squealing the guitar through the epic ending riff - superb. The only Floyd track missing which I would have expected to hear is "Sorrow".

As mentioned, the solo set list misses out completley David's first two albums and focuses on a selection of tracks from On an Island - tracks I have slated on this website for being dull and boring, yet on this new live album they seem to have come to life and fit in with the set so well.

Live albums by the nature need some crowd sing - along to the opening verses, but the Polish crowd listen intentley and clap politely, with no oversinging the opening verses!(Wish you were here comes to mind where at Earls Court the crowd can be heard singing every word - on this album silence!)

Some people ask why Gdansk?

5.0 out of 5 stars Gilmour may not be God,but he comes close. 30 April 2009
Format:Vinyl
An excellent outing from Mr Gilmour and band. The use of the orchestra is inspired as is the venue. All in all a totally involving experience for the vinyl buff.

Many from the various incarnations of Floyd were there & it shows. I think this may have been Richard Wright's last tour, so a little added poingancy in retrospect too.

I`m a BIG Floyd fan so I give this a 10/10 rating. To me, it was a shame that Roger Water`s was not there with them, but it did not spoil my enjoyment of the gig.
