Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Candy Santiago
Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters shepherded the band through its post-Syd Barrett era, along the way masterminding the concept-album landmarks Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall. The popular and critical praise heaped on Waters's Floyd work has overshadowed his stellar solo efforts. However, those in the know have long savored the mind-blowing ambition of such richly textured Waters works as The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking, an album-length dream diary, and Amused to Death, with its thoughtful philosophical ruminations. In the Flesh is Waters's definitive career retrospective and live statement. This compilation of West Coast performances from Waters's 1999-2000 U.S. tour spans his underrated solo work ("Every Stranger's Eyes," "Bravery of Being Out of Range"), well-loved classics ("Wish You Were Here," "Shine on You Crazy Diamond," "Another Brick in the Wall"), and vintage Pink Floyd album tracks ("Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun"). Featuring innovative arrangements fleshed out by the inspired playing of sidemen like Doyle Bramhall II and Andy Fairweather-Low, and packed with stunning visuals that are a Waters live trademark, In the Flesh is a must-have for Floyd and Waters acolytes alike. Tracks are as follows:
  • In the Flesh
  • The Happiest Days of Our Lives
  • Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2
  • Mother
  • Get Your Filthy Hands off My Desert
  • Southampton Dock
  • Pigs on the Wing, Part 1
  • Dogs
  • Welcome to the Machine
  • Wish You Were Here
  • Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-8)
  • Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun
  • Breathe (in the Air)
  • Time
  • Money
  • The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking, Part 11 (a.k.a. 5:06 AM -- Every Stranger's Eyes)
  • Perfect Sense (Parts 1 and II)
  • The Bravery of Being Out of Range
  • It's a Miracle
  • Amused to Death
  • Brain Damage
  • Eclipse
  • Comfortably Numb

    BOYCOTT ANYTHING BY ROGER WATERS. HE'S AN ANTI-SEMITE WHO IS BOYCOTTING ISRAEL. FIGHT BIGOTRY. Anyone who sides with Waters should go live in a Muslim country like Afghanistan or even the Palestinian territories - the darling of Waters' - where Christians are being murdered and churches burned. And Mr. Waters should lead the way. Join the Boyles in Afghanistan, prisoners since they were arrested for the crime of hiking in Afghanistan. But the main reason to boycott any music projects by Waters is that his music sucks. It was David Gilmour who was the musical genius of Pink Floyd.

    One of the most enjoyable DVD concerts I have purchased to date. Mr.Waters is a true professional and the Concert is first hand proof of that. The Pink Floyd songs are pure magic (not to mention his solo songs) and this DVD is a must weather you are a Floyd fan or not. Having surround sound makes you feel as though you have a front row seat at the show!!!!

    This DVD is just gorgeous musically and technically.The show was shooted in High Definition (probably 1080i) so the picture quality is top notch. The set is maybe lighted too much but on the other hand the camera angle and video editing is very fluid, almost every camera are operated on Jimmy Jib and moved slowly and mixed togheter just like a symphony. The musical performance of both guitarists and back vocals are very powerful and demonstrative. The sound mix is made in Quad and equilibrated, right from the start of teh show the back vocals are right in your face. Turn off the light, crank up the volume and enjoy. This production should be considered as the Dark Side of The Moon of DVD.

    For Roger Waters (like he reads this):I love the DVD, it was classic Floyd tracks and great solos. But the years, they are a passing, and I would LOVE to see something current, like in the last 2-3 years. I know you toured the States as recent as last year,2007, and the song you did for the movie The Last Mimzy was awesome, to say the very least! So for fans now, go ahead and get this DVD, if you are a Floyd fan, or just a fan of Roger Waters. It is standard must own material for us die hard Hammers. I keep mine between the DVDs Pulse, and of course The Wall.
