4 stars Same old problem: how to evaluate Pink Floyd without Waters? I like very much this release: when I first heard it, my cd had a problem and there was, on the hi-fi screen, a single track encorpsing all...So I heard the whole tracklist doing nothing else! I was really charmed; it was my first PFs' live album, and for that reason it stayed in my heart until today.

But at that time I ignored that Roger wasn't there and at the end I felt there were something wrong: sound was of course wonderful and songs performed in the usual magic way. Anyway, I didn't find, somewhere between Richard's epic keyboards and David's mitic riffs, solos and voice, Roger's bass notes. It's weird: Waters has not a peculiar sound, in the sense that if he played alone, it would not be recognizable like, don't know, RHCP' Flea or Iron Maiden's Steve Harris. It's NOT an insult (I consider him a genius)!!! Because in this Delicate Sound of Thunder I recognize that he's not here, a gap which make lost something I can't explain ( reminds me something...) to the whole performance.

Thus I can't really rate five star, despite there's the most beautiful version of Comfortably Numb I've ever heard....Without Waters, of course. Understand, David?
