4 stars This album occaisionally is better than the studio version in some aspects, especially instrumentation. It sports some much improved guitar and sythesizer work as well as the occaisional added drum improvisation and bass. The music here is more effective than the studio version, but the vocals are lacking a bit. WATERS just isn't a that good of a singer live. Since it is live, the message has less impact than the studio version, sacrificed for the stage feeling and better instrumentation. But still, it is wonderful.

Buy it even if you already own the studio version and like it and especially buy it if you thought that the musical instruments used in the studio were lacking. The added songs and MC are great as well, especially "What Shall We Do Now?". But by far the greatest song on here is the live "Run like Hell." AWESOME. One of the best PINK FLOYD songs ever, musically. Do not shrug off this album. The sound quality is great as well, studio quality on most of the songs except for "Mother," where a faint humming can be heard. All in all, it's just as good (if not better) than the studio version of "The Wall."
