5 stars I have this album since it came out, and it was one of the last monster live albums (Genesis Live over Europe was the other). The overall thing here is great. The package, the set list, and the performance of the band. Of course the main goal is the inclusion of The Dark Side of the Moon in a complete way.

Disc 1 includes mainly tracks from A momentary lapse of reason and Division Bell, with some old ones as Shine on you crazy diamond, Astronomy domine and Another brick on the wall part II. Shine on you is a good version, a bit longer than the one in Delicate sound of the thunder (DSOTT), but not better in my opinion. Here Wright seems to be improvising a bit more. Astronomy Domine is in a nice version. The new songs are played in a really good way. Some of them as Keep talking and High hopes are outstanding versions. Another brick is far better here than in DSOTT.

Disc II includes the overall Dark side of the moon (DSOTM) album and the encores. DSOTM is very well performed and those tracks originally sung by Waters, shines here sung by Gilmour, as Brain Damage and Eclipse. Simply amazing. The rest of the DSOTM performing sounds really good too. At the encores we have Wish you were here, in which the crowd sing with the band in a great version. Comfortably numb sounds more like than the original track here than in DSOTT and Run like hell is far weaker than the one in the DSOTT album.

The band sounds really polished, with Rick Wright in a full shape and demonstrating that they didn't need Waters anymore. Pulse is in my opinion between the best live albums that I ever heard.
