4 stars This is a wonderful live set that worked perfectly where Delicate Sound of Thunder failed. It contains amazing versions of both the AMLOR and Division Bell albums, plus a neat disc with an entire performance of DSOTM and the best guitar solo ever done live by Dave on "Comfortably Numb", a true special moment (i don't have words to describe how that solo affects me emotionally, and seeing it live may be an even more out of this world experience). Tracks like "Astronomy Domine" are brought back in perfect shape, and even without Syd this song manages to be a magical psychedelic trip. "Another Brick in the Wall II" sounds great here, with an amazing new arrangement at the intro based on "The happiest days of our lives", and the live rendition of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" with part seven together is amazing, especially on part three's keyboard solo, carried with pure wonderful emotion. The highlight here, though, is of course "High Hopes". Magical as the studio version, here we have one of the most special moments at the ending solo together with an orchestra giving that extra feel. The violins work in a very neat way, and at the ending you'll feel that what your soul just experience was pure magic. The "Dark Side of the Moon" songs are well played, not as greatly as the others on disc one, but it is always convenient to have a live performance of such a great album. The extended time given to the applauses on "Speak To Me" really bothers me, but well the FLOYD surely deserve such praise - although waiting for almost one minute of clapping until the song's arrival is quite boring. The encore set, containing "Wish You Were Here", "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell" has amazing versions of its respective songs, and that intro on "Run Like Hell" shows that Dave is the definite master of guitar.

Overall an amazing set of live songs that can be very enjoyable if people remember that FLOYD without Waters is still quality FLOYD - as i pointed on my AMLOR review. So, get both the audio and video of this performance. You won't be disappointed, you'll be actually dazzled by how great this band is live.
