5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 9 Jun 2005
This review is from: P.U.L.S.E (Audio CD)
Many people might think that this album is worth having for the live performance of 'Dark Side of the Moon' in it's entirety. Sadly though, the crowds interaction means the album loses a litte bit of the charachter that made the studio version so great.
Don't feel though, that I'm in any way trying to knock this album. Even without either Roger Waters or Syd Barret the band are still on top form.
The first disk opens with 'Shine on you Crazy Diamond', a fitting piece that builds up in intensity to prepare the crowd for a memorable cross section of pink floyds careers, stretching from 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn', through 'The Wall' and 'Wish you Were Here', right up to the bands post-Waters 'the Division Bell'. Certain songs really lend themselves to being performed live, most notably 'Another Brick in the Wall' and the outstanding 'Hey You', which in my opinion is worth buying the album for alone.
The second disk, is where you'll find Dark Side of the Moon, which is still exceptional, even if it falls short of its origonal recording. The real treat though comes in the wake of 'eclipse'. Three songs any Floyd fan wouldn't want to go home without hearing: 'Wish You Were Here', 'Run Like Hell' and ' Comfortably Numb'. Hearing the crowd sing along to the first is inspiring, while Gilmour makes his guitar sing in a significantly extended solo on Comfortably numb.
All in all this album is a must for any Floyd fan.
