5 stars This is truly one of the greatest concert DVDs ever made, rivaled only by Peter Gabriel's similarly stellar "Growing Up Live".

Here the concert is as much about the performance (which is top notch) and the setlist (also terrific) as it is the visible soul-searching its star is doing on stage. David Gilmour, with each bend, is getting closer to Babylon, to self-discovery. His undeniably classic solos take on new life when he performs them with forty years of onstage experience and with the soul of a infant, ready to die at the end of each day and be reborn by dawn's first light.

Gilmour covers ground untouched by any other artist with one part technical prowess and nine parts soulful sensibility. His playing speaks, and his singing shouts. No one sings him lullabies, no one makes him close his eyes, and so he throws the windows wide and calls to us across the sky.

If guest appearances tickle your fancy, jazz fusionist Robert Wyatt is present, as are David Crosby and Graham Nash of CSNY fame, and David Bowie closes the set standing next to David. If the playing of old gems rarely dusted off for the stage are your thing, well, there's that too: "Fat Old Sun", "Echoes", and "Arnold Layne" all appear on Gilmour's setlist and are played with the youthful energy with which they were written.

I recommend this DVD to anyone. Anyone at all. Literally the most impressive thing I have ever set eyes and ears upon.
