3 stars Roger Waters' in the flesh live is a very interesting concert DVD. Not at all essential, but certainly very entertaining and fun. With a great line of musicians (all more than capable musicians) and a varied set list (ranging from the classic Floyd era, all the way to Roger's more recent solo material, a bits in between). All the familiar songs are re-arranged, all the new songs are played convincingly, with sincere and emotional playing and clear singing.

A lot of the production is interesting, with all the Floyd sound effects, a really extravagant light show, interesting projector show, and even some more stage tricks to keep it interesting. For example, during the spacey instrumental segment of Dogs, the entire band (except keyboards and drums) leave the main area of the stage, and move towards a round table and begin a game of cards. A few moments of back stage footage at the beginning makes it even more interesting. Overall, it's a very good DVD, but little more. There's nothing painfully creative, nothing overwhelmingly fresh, and nothing wholly exciting.
