3 stars In my opinion the recording (or mixing) could have been better (as it was so on P.U.L.S.E.). The saxophone can be hardly heard sometimes. The tracks of the Momentary Lapse of Reason album are much better on the studio album (exept for On the Turning Away, only because the guitar solo at the end is fully played and not faded out). Shine on You Crazy Diamond is good, but the PULSE and WYWH recording is better. Gilmour's vocals are simply not good in Learning to Fly (I am really sorry to write things like this, because I like Gilmour's music and voice). Yet Another Movie and The Dogs of War were the biggest disappointments for me. They just not appeal me. Sorrow is the only track that I can consider good, worth listening to. So, the 2nd CD is better. The 2nd side contains all the stuff that makes this album be worth buying. One of These Days proves that Pink Floyd is on stage. It is good to hear Time being played without Breathe(reprise). This track is very good quality. I think at this time is Gilmour at his best. And, after many years: we can hear Rick Wright's voice again! Wish You Were Here is a weaker moment (in my point of view the studio version is the only good one of the three of this(WYWH, DSoT and PULSE)). Us and Them... What can I say? Another classic. Not the best recording, but it can shine despite this fact. This long-verion Money is a bit other style. The Band's players does not do one-instrument solos. But in this case, Guy Pratt (bass) has got a half minute where he shows what he is capable of, and the Backing Vocals are in the Foreground for a while. These parts make the track be much other style than it was on Dark Side Of the Moon. Another Brick in the Wall Part II could have a better introduction (as it was on PULSE), but the guitar solo solves any bad feelings about this. Well, Comfortably Numb is one of the best Pink Floyd songs ever, but not at this time. It is not complete yet (again, PULSE is better, but there this song is the best track). This version of Run Like Hell is the best one. More touching than in The Wall, and not so long- introducted as it was on PULSE.
