Product description

Product Description

Out of print in the U.S.! Delicate Sound of Thunder is a 1988 two CD live document of the band's successful Momentary Lapse of Reason tour. Apart from playing songs from that album, the band generously offer up a host of old classics as well. Though Roger Waters had departed the band, the remaining trio (David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason) carried on with the band name, releasing successful albums and undertaking record-breaking tours. The Delicate Sound of Thunder remains one of their most popular live releases. EMI.

After Roger Waters's departure from Pink Floyd in 1985, remaining members David Gilmore and Nick Mason decided to continue. The massive 155-date world tour that they embarked on in 1988 in the wake of the success of the Momentary Lapse Of Reason album featured one of the most spectacular live shows ever put together. With state-of-the-art lights and lasers perfectly synchronised with the music, a stage festooned with huge inflatable beds and pigs and a band featuring up to 10 musicians (including former keyboardist Rick Wright), it all had to be organised and executed with military precision. As a consequence, the music on this double live album does not contain much room for innovation or departure from the already scrupulously structured studio tracks. In some cases, as on "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" and "Wish You Were Here" the results are relatively disappointing. In others, as on "The Dogs Of War", "Money" and "Another Brick In The Wall" there is enough added zest and energy to justify new versions. In general, the tracks taken from Momentary Lapse Of Reason appear in somewhat enhanced renditions. Mainly, however, this was an album directed at people who attended the tour and were able to fill in the otherwise missing onstage spectacle from memory. --James Swift
