4 stars Since this acquisition, I actually have been listening to this boxset more often than my original studio vinyl but then again Comfortably Numb (user-friendliness) is the name of the game. Outside the supreb hey You (future absent in the movie), there is an extra track (not present on the studio album), which is obviously the main (but not the only one) interest of this release and it is great but I am still waiting for Floyd to release the very first number in the film on CD (you know, the one showing Pink's father getting killed). The fake Pink Floyd group plying is another strange invention, also one of the interesting features of this album, and frankly, you couldn't tell them apart from the real ones. Outside of these particularities, this release had the dubious honour of a terrible face/mask artwork in both formats, the normal jewel case and the much nicer "boxset" where the pictures of the shows are definitely helping to understand what Roger was trying to build, before the movie would appear a few years later.
