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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astounding, Beyond the Heavens...... 5 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Floyd on top form. 25 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
This review is based upon the old release CD which has the same tracks.

Personally I believe the songs on PULSE are a better starting base for the Floyd beginner than the Echoes: Best Of from the early 2000's. This is due to the trippy 60s tracks being excluded in favour of David Gilmour's guitar driven anthems from the 80s and mid-90s along with WHOLE of Floyd's most experimental album, "The Dark Side of the Moon".

Starting with the eternal classic "Shine On..." the first CD is a collection of Gilmour's greatest hits including the anthemic "Learning to Fly" and "Sorrow" mixed with classics from the Wall, "Hey You" and "Brick in the Wall Pt.II".

However, Disc 2 is where the album elevates to another level. Beginning with an entire performance of DSOTM, the experimental album which really concreted the foundations which Floyd would develop on in the 70s. The CD closes with greatest hits from WYWH and the Wall, check out the extended solo on "Comfortably Numb" and "Money".

Pink Floyd were on fine form throughout these live performances which make the album. The full-time return of Richard Wright boosted confidence compared with the previous live offering, "Delicate Sound of Thunder".

Pink Floyd were a fantastic studio and album band, however these songs evolve in a Live environment. Stick PULSE in your car and feel the energy these talented experienced musicians deliver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pulse 13 Aug 2008
By Penny
Format:Audio CD
This is quite possibly the greatest rock CD out there. I have always been a fan of the British Rock from the 70s and 80s, with my 2 favourite bands being Pink Floyd and Dire Straits. What Alchemy is to Dire Straits, Pulse is to Pink Floyd. 'Coming Back To Life', 'Another Brick in The Wall', and of course 'Comfortably Numb' are quite simply sensational. The album is a must have for anyone who appreciates a fantastic guitar solo, or for those who think that music is just not the same as it was.

Honestly buy this album, put it on a great stereo, and you can just sit back and be amazed. Without doubt my favourite album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pulse 9 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of the greatest bands on the planet, and nothing comes close to the voice of David Gilmour. If you can find the original version of the CD with the pulsating light, it would be a collector's item. I would also recommend "Live at Gdansk" Cd with DVD.
Worth every penny

5.0 out of 5 stars Floyd in their prime 31 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
An incredible live album, crystal clear sound, amazing performance, great set. It may as well be a greatest hits album. Just do yourselves a favour and purchase this cd- even if you have never heard floyd before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highs and Mediums 9 Oct 2007
By fleet22
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have to disagree with the earlier comments about 'Time'. I think the reviewer must have been comparing it with the immaculate and awe-inspiring version on DSOTM which is still one of the all time classic tracks ever recorded by anyone. OK the Pulse version does not quite meet the levels of perfection achieved in the studio but it is still pretty good for a 'live' version. I suppose the missing ingredient is Roger Waters, without whom Floyd are not quite the Real Floyd. My highlight is the extended Gilmour guitar work on 'Money'. My one slight disappointment is Great Gig the Sky - on which the female vocals fail to match the iconic voice of Clare Torry on the DSOTM original. All in all this album is well worth owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album - even for the Floyd cynic 19 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pink Floyd are timeless and their live performances offer a different perspective on some of their songs. A slightly rawer sound and an edginess to Gilmour's unbelievable guitar talents. Worth buying even as a non-floyd die hard, as Money, Comfortably Numb, Run like hell, Sorrow etc are all good Floyd standards.
The only downside is "Any Colour you like" which seems to have been troubled by the inability to get the synths loud enough.
