2 stars Not bad album, but having it is only heavy fans interest. In fact, Waters plays mostly well known Pink Floyd songs ( ok, and few own songs from solo albums, but its are even less interesting there). Sound is uninspired and down tempo. Main instrument sounding is acoustic guitar.

Yes, any Pink Floyd fan will hear there almost all his beloved songs. But nothing new or different at all. The musicians are all competent, but not innovative. And there is not drive at all!

I think it is interestning for heavy PF/Waters fans to hear that one of greatest rock musicians is still in quite good form, and plays live his great songs. But all of them are better when played but Pink Floyd ( in studio or live). And his solo songs ( which are mainly of heavy fans interest in studio version) don't sound better there as well. Even musicians participated ( as Fairweather Low and Snowy White) added nothing special or new to album's music.

For me, this album is a monument ( in form of recorded live sound) Roger Waters build to himself at the possibly end of his great career. Listenable, but would be interesting for heavy fans only.
