5 stars Amazing video with an overall mystic effect and very focused on Nick Mason, Live at Pompeii shows amazing versions of the respective studio ones of some of the FLOYD's most remarkable songs. "Echoes" is amazing here, both parts making a cyclic effect with an awesome intro on the second part, much better than the studio version. "Careful with axe, Eugene" is not so great as in Ummagumma or some ROIOS, but it still doesn't disappoint. "Sauceful of Secrets" is pure brilliance here, it is the kind of song that HAS to be seen live to be fully enjoyed, and "Celestial Voices" is the climax of the entire set. Roger goes crazy on that gong, and the scene with the sun reflecting at him hitting the gong is the best one from the film. "Set the controls..." is amazing as always, Nick's drumming is great and the "ooohh" done by Dave harmonizing with Roger's vocals is very well done. "One of These Days" shows Nick going nuts on his drums, proving that his talents do exist and that he is one of the most underrated drummers ever. He has a style of his own, since the FLOYD's music is actually more melodic, so we can expect more slight drumming works. Unfortunately that's often misunderstood as "lack of talent", but it is only Nick's style and people have to understand that. "Mademoiselle Nobs" is actually "Seamus", and it is a very fun part as the original is on Meddle. The other video parts show great shots of the band working on their equipments and having fun together, making the video even more awesome as we know more of each member on each scene (there's that classic one where Roger starts having fun with his cigarrete's smoke, a very cool part indeed!).

So, this is my favorite PINK FLOYD video and i watch it a lot often, and never get bored of it! Truly addicting and trippy from the first space travel showing on the video's intro to the outro of the second part of "Echoes". GET THIS DVD NOW!

And it has to be without the crust!
