4 stars My first version of this live concert video was a laser disc and it did help me to digest and appreciate more on the music of "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason" - the first album after the departure of the band's mastermind, Roger Waters. That's why, I love this one very much. I have now updated this live set video to a DVD format.

It opens wonderfully with an intro of a legendary track "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" through the work of David Gilmour's guitar overlaid on long sustain keyboard / synthesizer sounds. When the intro ends up the video turns into a scene of young man rowing a boat in a peaceful river with background music of "Signs of Life". It's very nice. At the end of the cast is the intro of "Learning To Fly" with David Gilmour's guitar work. Nick Mason is assisted by Garry Wallis on percussion that makes the percussion part of "Learning To Fly" much dynamic. On bass guitar is an energetic young lad by name of Guy Pratt who helps the band on concert / tour.

"Sorrow" is my favorite track and the band plays this track excellently. It kicks off with David Gilmour's guitar solo that rocks! The song moves in a natural way with tight bass lines and drums guide the music through smoothly from start to end. It's an accessible track that I'm sure most people would favor very much. The electric guitar work by Gilmour is top notch. Seeing Gilmour plays his guitar on stage is a good thread really. The other enjoyment is Nick's drum sets as well as Guy Pratt's stage act. Oh by the way, the stage lighting is also great! The crowd starts going crazy with this track.What follows is another good track "Dogs of War" performed excellently by the band. Gilmour pushes his envelope on singing style where he's kind like screaming at the opening part of the track. The Lapse thread ends with "On The Turning Away" and the band continues with classic songs.

From an atmospheric, spacey "One Of These Days" the band brings classic stuffs from "Dark Side of The Moon" album wonderfully with "Time", "On The Run", and "The Great Gig in The Sky". The band then moves into an acoustic outfit with classic "Wish You Were Here" track from the same album with very good acoustic guitar performed by Gilmour and Tim Renwick. Really a great one! It then moves back to DSOTM album with "Us and Them", The Wall's "Comfortably Numb", The Lapse "One Slip" and concluded with "Run Like Hell" from The Wall.

What do you expect from a hero of progressive rock? It's an excellent concert! Highly recommended. Keep on proggin' ..!
