Biography

In the early 1960s, a bunch of boys from Cambridge began jamming together, and out of those encounters were born the early incarnations of Pink Floyd. More than 40 years and 150 million album sales later, the band headlined the biggest global music event in history – Live 8 – and was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. You could say the Floyd has staying power.

Pulse was the last time Pink Floyd set oput onto the stage and was the last release of an original album.
Before even slipping the CD into your player you can't help but be impressed with Pulse. The case and inner sleeve contain great shots taken by the legendary Storm Thorgerson. And inside the inner sleeve is a book of ohotos from the tour that realy capture the atmosphere and scale of Pink Floyd in concert (well, I can only assume that, having been too young to have ever been to see Floyd live).
The first disc is essentially a collection of "Greatest Hits" (if one may be so crude), starting with Shine On You Crazy Diamond. Gilmour provides the vocals, backed up ably by bassist Guy Pratt and an array of backing singers. Gilmour revives and makes his own Syd Barrets classic Astronomy Domine. next follows a selection of tracks from A Momentaryt Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell, all taken to another level in live performamce. Disc One ends with the Floyd hit ANother Brick in the Wall Part Two. This is a little disappointing in my opinion, but still a great listen.
What can I say about Disc 2? Well, very little, in fact. Dark Side of the Moon live was the perfect ending to the carrer of Pink Floyd spanning nearly forty years. The tone is warm and rich, with many moments exceeding the studio version and some not quite delivering the perfection of the 1973 album. "Time" is a fantastic development on the original, with the immense solo bettered in Concert.. Great Gig in the Sky is the best attempt since 1973 and easily matches the vocals of Clare Torry. "Money" is a little disappointing, despite the extended guitar solo. Gilmour, after immense build up, refuses to push his Strat up to top E (you know the bit!) and it becomes a bit of an anti-climax.

Even after the very first time of listening to this album, it was already my joint favourite live album of all time (tied with Led Zeppelin's How the West Was Won). Pink Floyd has been one of my favourite bands for a while now, but unfortunately, as I am only 14, I never had the chance to go and see them live. I'd always heard they were fantastic live, and that as a good a studio band they were, to get the proper Floyd experience, they had to be heard live. So after their amazing and triumphant reunion at live8 (highlight of the show!), I placed p.u.l.s.e at the top of my birthday list, hoping I'd get it. Sure enough I was in luck, and ever since then I've pretty much been playing it everyday.
When I first heard about this album, I was a little unsure of whether to get it or not. This concert was after all done by a Waters-less Pink Floyd, and I thought what is Pink Floyd without the genius that is Roger Waters? But, after hearing p.u.l.s.e, no offence to the man, but you don't notice that he isn't there. Guy Pratt does an excellent job filling in, and even on songs such as Money and Comfortably Numb, where Rogers' superb bass playing and distinctive vocals respectively make the songs what they are, you don't realise that it is someone else playing or singing, which I think is a good thing.
Disc one is mainly post-Waters stuff, but with a handful of 'classic' Floyd songs scattered here and there, and all performed brilliantly, I might add! It kicks off with a spine-tingling Shine on You crazy Diamond, a tribute to ex-band mate Syd Barrett, who went insane. Dave Gilmour really does give it his all in this song, and it gives me goose bumps every time! The next song is the very early Syd-era Astronomy Domine, again performed brilliantly.

This album is a hair tingling journey of Floyd's live performances in the 90's.

For any Rock lover there is a SINGULAR reason why this 2CD live album is a must buy. We'll come to that later.....

Pulse is an excellent live album covering a multitude of classic Pink Floyd tracks from Dark Side of the Moon (DSOM) and onwards. With few exceptions the musical quality is sparkling, fresh and scintillating.

CD1 covers the bands post DSOM music with some particularly outstanding performances, noticeably `Coming Back to Life', `Sorrow', `A Great Day for Freedom' and `High Hopes'.

CD2 Dark Side of the Moon live stirs memories of one of the 70's great albums. The band venture skilfully through the full rendition with one major disappointment: `Time'. This live version is so disenchanting that it is rumoured the real Floyd were on secondment at this juncture. Nevertheless during the Finale everything is rectified........

Which brings us to the SINGULAR reason why one should buy this album:

`Comfortably Numb'.

Already recognised as the masterpiece on The Wall `Comfortably Numb' is taken to new heights beyond the Stratosphere, Galaxy and Heavens on this live album. The four minutes guitar solo by Dave Gilmour is simply the best you will ever listen to. Words are meaningless in attempting to describe this uniquely brilliant performance by Gilmour.

To mention first of all the opening track "Shine on you crazy Diamond" Brilliant version...It exspressed every feeling and emotion that the song contains and multiplied the feeling by 10.
Then to mention the sound....very well made, quality is pin sharp,almost the feeling of actually been there.For a live album to do that...it has to be pretty amazing. To hear the likes of "hey you" and "High Hopes" and many more played to perfection and given it all.many people reckon as a band get older they lose their abilty they once had...this is not the case...unlike the embarrasing "the wall live in berlin" by rodger waters...which in fairness to rodger would have been brillaint if he'd stayed on stage for more than 5 mins and notletting everyone cover for him....but in any case was terrible (in my opinion) Cd 2 ...an amzing live version of "DARK SIDE OF THE MOON" which gave a twist and extra feeling to the original album...with arguably modern affects.
To make a long story short and not to sound like a pink floyd freak if I could give this album 10 stars I would......tips: GET IT
