4 stars The only good Pink Floyd effort from the 80's saw the band attempting to recreate their epic concept album on stage. The task at hand was to create a fascinating visual opus as well as keeping the music to par. Of course for Pink Floyd this is no problem with the amount of equipment and technitions.

The Wall Live has to be one of the best stages of Pink Floyds life and one of the most draw dropping live shows of their career. It is nice to see some of the songs that didn't make the studio album here. "What Shall We Do Now?", i think is a crucial track off this live album and is excellently placed as an extension to "Empty Spaces". "The Last Few Bricks" is just a filler instrumental and is is understandable that this was cut from the album. These two tracks reappear in the film of the wall. The visuals in the huge booklet that comes with the limited edition boxset show are a feast for the eyes and this is definetly money well spent. The interviews with the band are great for the fans and its nice to see that Roger and Richard came to terms again. This is probably the best full live album by Pink Floyd although i have to admit that Ummagumma is still better.
