4 stars Where does one start? You know when Gilmour is going to release a DVD it will be of the highest standard because he is a perfectionist. The venue for this concert, The Royal Albert Hall offers a magnificent setting for Floyd sound. The photography is crystal clear and everything about the production is fitting for any Floyd enthusiast. David Crosby and Graham Nash are having the time of their lives and provide great backing vocals. The Carol Kennyon's and the like are not present here which is not a bad thing because Crosby and Nash, Carin etc provide ample backing vocals. Last but not least the most enjoyable aspect to watching this DVD is Disc 2 with all the European and USA highlights and seeing a rejuvenated Rick Wright having the time of his life too. Rick Wright truly has come out of his shell here as David Gilmour puts it and his enthusiasm is very infectious throughout the whole band, tour and crew. There is one part where they are celebrating RW's birthday and Gilmour offers a very sincere and affectionate affirmation of his strong relationship with Rick Wright. Roger Waters even bumps into Polly Samson and Gilmour on one of the touring sets and evrything is pretty relaxed, atmosphere wise.Peace at last....

Musically there are quite a few highlights, the best definitely ' Echoes', Gilmour and Wright in vintage form. ' On an Island' excellently delivered, ' The Blue' but it was great to see David Bowie doing ' Arnold Layne' and ' Comfortably Numb'. As Rick Wright said Bowie made them his own!! This comes highly recommended, more enjoyable than his previous DVD. Excellent value.
