4 stars Pulse was a 2-CD set recording of live material during Pink Floyd's Division Bell tour. Not having released much live material in their history (one LP of Ummagumma and 1988's Delicate Sound of Thunder, and later, 2000's Is There Anybody Out There?), Pulse is the most important work to acquire if you want to have a live recording by the band. There are probably countless bootlegs available out there that would contain much of their 1970s material, but none of it would compare with the sound quality of Pulse. Admittedly it would have been nice to hear material from Animals or more of their Pre-Dark Side era. Still you can only fit so much on 2 CDs and for as old as these guys were in 1994, you couldn't expect them to last more than the customary three hours on stage.

The first disc contains chiefly more recent material from Division Bell and A Momentary Lapse of Reason, but includes a resurrected Barrett-penned Astronomy Domine, the thrilling One of These Days, and a beautiful performance of Shine On You Crazy Diamond. The second disc contains an amazing performance of the Dark Side of the Moon album in its entirety, followed by their classic live closers of Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb and Run Like Hell.

An excellent acquisition that every Pink Floyd fan should have. It would have been a masterpiece if some of the Division Bell material was replaced with some of their better earlier stuff. Four stars. Highly recommended.
