5 stars This is an absolute must for anyone who has an interest in Pink Floyd. I bought the DVD of the Earl's Court show and loved it. So I wasn't even planning to buy this one. Then I saw a shortened version of the show on BBC1 late at night and was impressed by the superb band Gilmour had put together. Next stop, I bought the DVD. It starts well, with some classic DSOTMoon and Gilmour's guitar and Wright's keyboard making you believe this is Floyd. The playing of the entire On An Island I wasn't too sure of... until I saw it. Guests include Crosby & Nash (sublime harmonies). Then we move into Pink Floyd territory again. There are some great moments here: Shine on you Crazy Diamond (C&N backing vocals again superb, Dick Parry on sax). High Hopes... they're all good - in fact, you are constantly reminded of just how brilliant Gilmour is on guitar because he makes it look effortless. Then comes THE TRACK. ... It's almost like a religious experience. ECHOES. The sound, the lights... it's astonishing and nothing will prepare you for it. When the second half of Echoes gets going with all the band playing out that driving, building sequence one is left utterly gobsmacked at how breathtakingly magnificent it is. It's a very emotional connection because you want to tell the world THIS is why I love prog. Absolutely unmissable. Then there's an emotional Wish You Were Here. It's not over yet though. A bit more C&N then on comes David Bowie. The audience are genuinely amazed by this and it's all friends together for Arnold Layne and Comfortably Numb. This is one hell of a DVD, the best I've bought (and I've got 35 concerts). The 2nd disc is also packed with goodies. Just buy this now. You will not regret it. I'm off to play Echoes again.
