I saw two different shows on this tour, one in an arena, the other in a football stadium. And the sound was incredible good, even in the outdoor venue. What you don't get on this album is the swirling surround sound used throughout the show. But the sound is still quite nice on this CD set.

As for the songs themselves, the abridges version of Shine On You Crazy Diamond is fine. But then, the remainder of the first disk is only songs from "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason". While the album would make a very good David Gilmour album, the other members of what was left of Pink Floyd just don't really add much to the music.

Disk 2 fares better, as it is the first official live release of those favorite Floyd fundamentals. Mason and Wright seem to perk up when playing the classics. Most of the songs are played fairly straight, but Money's solo section is where there is the most variation, with a reggae passage, and even a *gasp* bass solo. Another Brick In The Wall II (not one of my favorite Floyd songs), is okay, but bassist Guy Pratt gets a bit annoying with his pop and slap licks.

So this isn't a terrible album, but I still wish they had released a live recording of the "Animals" tour.
