5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best live album ever!, 19 Nov 2007
This remastered and expanded version of 'The Song Remains The Same' is probably the best live album I have ever heared. The original album was always one of my favourites but this re-release surpasses it by a country mile! It is also even better than the superb 'How The West Was Won' album. The sound quality has been vastly improved and the inclusion of the previously missing tracks and corrected running order makes a huge difference! What also adds to the value of this album is that the majority of songs that were included in the previous release (e.g. Stairway to Heaven, No Quarter, Dazed and Confused etc.) are different versions of the songs taken from another night of the Garden concerts. So you are not listening to a song you have already heard before.

The stand out song of the whole album is definately 'Since I've Been Loving You.' This performance solidifies my belief that Jimmy Page is the greatest guitarist who ever lived!!! Just listen to that intro!

All in all this is truly an outstanding performance from the greatest rock band of all time and is definately well worth buying!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Brilliance!, 6 April 2003
This review is from: Wish You Were Here (Audio CD)
This has to be one of the greatest albums of all time. A favourite of most Floyd fans and a great place to start for newcomers to the band. If you have heared the rap version of Wish you were Here please do not be put off, as it shows no indication whatsoever to the true magnificence of this album.
"Shine on you crazy diamond" is one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever made and it is followed up by Roger Waters' dig at the evils of the music business "welcome to the machine". The next track, "Have a cigar" displays Dave Gilmour's guitaring at its absolute best.
The final two songs, "Wish you were here" and "...crazy diamond part 2" do not lower the standard at all. "WYWH" in particular has become an all time classic. This album has to be listend to as a whole in order to truly appreciate the atmosphere that is created by it. It is definately one of the greatest albums ever made, buy it!
