5 stars I'm the biggest Floyd fan in the world. I (unlike many people) have grew up with Floyd since the day I was born listening to their music. I have also met 3 out of the 4 band members so far.

I think it's Sooooooooooooo wrong that people judge their albums the way they do, just remember, if you're a true fan of Pink Floyd, you'll love every album just like me.

I think Pulse is the Definition of Pink Floyd. It is wihtout a doubt a follow up from the "delicate sound of thunder" tour (not to mention, years ahead too) so they had listened to what fans wanted to hear & what they wanted to see.

They had just released "The Division Bell" which is such an amazing album from start to finish (you've got to remember, this is Pink Floyd in the 90's, you can't live in the "Syd in 60's" days your whole life). I understood they would perform there new album live to the fans who stongly anticipated a new album. So putting a few songs from the new album in the first half of their set was good. I mean, they played classics too like "Shine on you crazy Diamond" and "Another brick in the Wall" & also some songs from the album "A momentary Lapse of Reason".

The second half of the show was for all the pure die hard Floyd fans. The entire Dark side of the Moon setlist all in one with no gaps, just one song into the other. Brilliant & also this was my first experience to Dark side of the moon in 1994 when I saw the gig as I was only 10 at the time.

The encore selection was perfect. Wish you were here, Comfortably Numb & Run like hell. Of course for me growing up with Pink Floyd, when I saw the gig I instantly knew what the last 2 tracks would be just becuase I had seen them play that kind of setlist so many times. What I didn't expect was how much BIGGER the crystal ball would be in the guitar solo of Comfortably Numb. I knew there would be one but not that big! It was huge!

I think the overall album is Pink Floyds finest work. They stopped having "fun" on the delicate sound of thunder tour & got back to basics with this album. The music in every song is spot on, the light show is out of this world & has not been matched ever since & the choice of songs is perfect for all types of Floyd fans.

All i can say is, if you're interested in Pink Floyd & are wondering what album to buy first? get this, it's Pink Floyd in a nutshell!!!!!!!!!!!
