The second live album by PINK FLOYD was recorded in 1994 and released in 1995 as a part of the "The division bell" tour. The album features songs from "The division bell", "Wish you were here", "The wall", "A momentary lapse of reason", one song from "The Piper at the gates of dawn" (Astronomy domine), and the whole performance of "The dark side of the Moon".

The songs do not change too much from their original studio versions; even when the absence of Roger WATERS is notorious, the band made a great job performing the classic songs in a very well-toned style. The first CD is more varied while the second album is the one with the whole performance of "The dark side of the Moon" and the three encores: "Wish you were here", "Comfortably numb" and "Run like hell".

This album is considerably more interesting and entertained than its predecessor "Delicate sound of thunder" but I don't think that makes this album an indispensable masterpiece of Progressive Rock music, maybe I'm not very much into live albums since there are not too many of them that I consider masterpieces, but I can't find anything in this album that makes a notable difference into PINK FLOYD's music, just a bunch of excellent old-songs with no innovation at all (not musically at least, the video of the show must be quite more interesting).
