4 stars Many of the songs are pretty much the same as their studio counterparts, so I'll cut the mentions to the ones that are different.

MC: Atmos 1 - This is a nice little intro to the album. I've heard that some of the introductions to the concert mentioned people who stood on their seats would be shot. I wish they would've used one of those instead.

Another brick in the wall, part two - I think this is a pretty cool adaptation of the original song. Kind of hard to describe, but a positive thing about the album. I'd say it's better than the original. Really!

Mother - Two minutes longer, but not much added here. Original is better.

What shall we do now? - Why wasn't this included on the original album? This is a nice addition of the Empty spaces/Young lust combo

Young lust - Time extended, but once again, not a lot added. Original is better.

The last few bricks - Sounds alright, but could've used more variation. Better off not being on the original.

Comfortably numb - Worse than the original based on the sole fact that the cool alarm-like noise near the start of the song is gone.

MC: Atmos 2 - Useless. At least the original was a nice lead-in that has a start you aren't really expecting. This is not only more of the same, but Yudman's voice is just stupid here.

Run like hell - For the second time on the album, the extended version is a positive addition. Well, the intro speech is kind of dumb, but the rest of the song is an improvement.

Outside the wall - This is another addition by time extension. Good times.

Overall, not as good as the original, but not far off. Same rating I'd give the original, 4/5.
