4 stars This has remained as one of my all-time favorite live albums. It of course has to do with my love for Pink Floyd, so since the very first time I listen to it (and watched the DVD) felt trapped under its charm and power. This album does what a live release should do best, by involving the crowd and truly bringing across their enthusiasm for the event. "PULSE" is divided into 2 CD's. An obvious decision due to the amount of songs and the long length of some of them. The first CD has several songs from "The Division Bell", such as "Coming Back To Life", "High Hopes" and "What Do You Want From Me", and a couple of "Lapse of Reason" tracks that represented the Waters- less era. However, this first CD also features older songs, opening with a wonderful performance of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", which is followed by a surprisingly good "Astronomy Domine." Also featured here are "Hey You" and "Another Brick in the Wall" On the second CD they offer a complete performance of "Darkside of the Moon" which is probably their most recognized and successful album. For an encore the band offers three more representative songs, "Wish You Were Here", "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell", and once again, with excellent interpretations that with leave you with a huge smile. I recommend 'P.U.L.S.E' to anyone really, weather you're just getting into Floyd or if it's the only album missing from your collection. This is a great place to start, simply because it will help you understand just how great Floyd were live. Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
