Delicate Sound of Thunder

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
In the late '80s, fans were thirsting for a live spectacle from Pink Floyd, where they could hear the old tunes and see all the old stunts. That's what they got on the 1987/1988 Pink Floyd world tour, which is documented on the double-disc set Delicate Sound of Thunder. David Gilmour's reunited Floyd minus Roger Waters was intent on re-creating the sound and feel of classic Floyd, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that the oldies feel like the classic records, only with Gilmour taking each vocal. He and Floyd deliver well with professional, competent, and often enjoyable music -- an adequate souvenir of the tour.

    A reviewer

    I bought this album when it came out, giving the post Roger Waters Floyd a chance. Gilmour's playing is excellent as usual, but he should have toured as David Gilmour, not Pink Floyd. Roger Waters' vocals are sorely missed. The songs from Momentary Lapse are not worthy of the Floyd name. This album has no heart. Awful.

    What's better than Floyd? Floyd live!!

    This is one of the best Floyd records ever. It truly captures what a great band can do when not bound by the constraints of the studio. Take great tracks like Comfortably Numb and On the Turning Away and playing live just makes them better. In fact, the solo from On the Turning Away is one of the best I have ever heard. The version on this record is ten times better than on Momentary Lapse of Reason.

    Aewsome. Their best live recording

    This album is by far their best live recording, and I can't believe how underrated it is. David Gilmour's guitar playing is top-notch, (this version of Comfortably Numb is by far their best). Sorrow is also great. One Of These Days has great lap-steel playing and Nick Mason's drums sound really good. I like the atmosphere in this album a little better than Pulse (which is also a great album)

    Who needs Roger Waters?

    The guitar solo from Comfortably Numb is worth the price itself. Other higlights are Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Wish You Were Here and Us and Them. If you are interested in buying a live Floyd CD, this is much better than Pulse which also rates very highly.

    Fantastic--definative Floyd!

    If you were lucky enough to see the concert, (still airs on cable arts & PBS--have that vcr ready!) This is one concert you will watch (VHS) and listen to again and again. BUY this cd--It's pure Floyd genius and well worth raving about.
