3 stars After Roger Waters left the band, Gilmour took the leadership of Pink Floyd, creating a controversial album named A Momentary Lapse of Reason, several people think of it as a work lack of creativity and give to it less credit as if Waters were with the band.

One year later, Pink Floyd were touring and introducing this album to their fans and people, the title of this tour/live album/DVD is The Delicate Sound of Thunder, luckily counting with the great Storm Thorgerson`s artwork, and with the support of the Floyd lovers who despite feel sad because of Waters exclusion, they were always with the band, assisting to their concerts and buying their later days albums.

This video containts 15 songs, with the great and beautiful Shine on You Crazy Diamond as an Intro and Outro of the video, i wouldd prefer to watch a complete performance of this song, but anyway i think if this works as an intro and outro, is because they decided to make it only as a representative song.

The first 5 songs of the concert, is what we are expecting of this precise tour, a batch of 5-A Momentary Lapse of Reason songs, an intrroduction to their newest album in that time, i think those moments were well accepted by the audience, me as a fan, expect another kind of songs, but knowing as the tour is made to promote an album, it`s ok for me, also i like Lapse of Reason, not my favorite at all, but i consider it as a good album, "Signs of Life","Learning to Fly","Sorrow", "Dogs of War" and "On the Turning Away" are the songs performanced here, i`ll take "Sorrow" as my favorite here, also Learning to Fly which is maybe the people`s favorite song of Lapse of Reason.

Back to the 70`s, and just what people asked for, Pink Floyd pleased them with some extraordinary tracks such as "One of These Days" excellent bass playing by Guy Pratt, "Time" which is a peak moment of the concert, because all the people loves it and because its very well played, "On the Run" where we can see images of a kind of movie of video clip, "The Great Gig in the Sky" as usual with Gilmour tours, here we find a trio of ladies as backing vocals, this time they show us their power and beuty of their voices,"Wish You Were Here", "Money", "Us and Them" and the always kick ass "Comfortably Numb" complete the beloved batch of Pink Floyd songs, i enjoy them all a lot, the version of Time is great also because of the guitar versus saxophone duel.

The final two songs are "One Slip" anopther Lapse of Reason song, which i like so much but i think is not what you wish to see, and the last song is "Run Like Hell" a crazy and awesome performance of that song, as i said above Shine On sounds again when the DVD finishes and the credits are on air.

I recommend this concert a lot, maybe the quality of the video is not th best, i think is a bit dark but the sound is pretty good, if you "accept" the post Waters albums, you should get this DVD and enjoy it, i personally give it 3 because is pretty good, but never essential.
