2 stars Not the brightest record from Waters, honestly there are a couple of bootlegs from this time that where much better recorded, yet there are some good moments, the problem is the bad quality of Roger's vocals, specially on songs that he didn't originally sang, amazingly he's the man when we are talking about Comfortably Numb, no dubts about that.

What is a real pain for me is Doyle Bramhall II on guitars. He's such an exhibitionist and never get things right. Just look at Comfrotably Numb again, Roger Waters vocals are pretty good here, but Doyle kills the solos. The first one is acceptable, nothing like Gilmour, but somehow ends up handling it, the problem is the secong where he starts failing notes, and the end result is not good at all.

Jon Carin is a good vocalist, always have been, but the addition of the female singers along with others behind him doesn't help at all, by the contrary. If for one side we get finally some Animals songs officially recorded, the songs are somewhat putted randomly, at least for me it doens't make much sense the tracklist. Don't expect Pink Floyd quality, but comparing it to the Wall Live in Berlin this is much better.
