Pink Floyd claim they had no intention of recording another live album when they began the Division Bell tour, but performing The Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety convinced the group to release another double-live set, called Pulse.

There's no question that the group is comprised of talented musicians, including the number of studio professionals that augmented the trio on tour. Whether they're inspired musicians is up to debate. A large part of Pink Floyd's live show is based on the always impressive visuals; on the Division Bell tour, they closed each show with an unprecedented laser extravaganza. In order for the visuals and the music to coincide, the group needed to play the sets as tightly as possible, with little improvisation. Consequently, an audio version of this concert, separated from the visuals, is disappointing. Pink Floyd play the greatest hits and the new songs professionally, yet the versions differ only slightly from the original recordings, making Pulse a tepid experience.

    absolutely amazing!! crystal clear!!

    I saw this DVD when my dad bought it, and my girlfriend just recently bought me the CD. It is unbelievable how clear the show sounds, and how the band is not drowned out by the crowd. Not to mention Pink Floyd is one of my favorite bands of all time. David Gilmore is one of the best guitarists EVER, and this show proves it!! Trust me, this CD is worth every penny.

    bone chilling

    At long last this album completes my pink floyd collection...is it the last brick? The performance and audio quality is absolutely amazing with incredible solos. Hearing some of my favourite songs played a little bit differently made my passion for pink floyd even greater. a must have in any collection

    Floyd at their best...

    I was at this concert and while a concert CD can never bring you back to the show, this one definitely comes close. This CD will not disapoint.

    A must have for Pink Floyd fans

    I bought this cd when I was 15 and I still listen to it almost religiously. There is no album quite like this one in my cd collection.I would recommend this album to anybody.There is not one song on this album that I do not like but, I do have my favorites on disk one I like Shine On You Crazy Diamond, What Do You Want From Me, Hey You,and High Hopes. On disk two my favorites are On The Run(because of the weird way they blend together diffrent sounds),Money,Wish You Were Here,and Comfortably Numb. This was the first Pink Floyd album I ever bought and worth every penny.

    This album has come in a heartbeat

    A Must Have, featuring a great deal of Pink Floyd songs old and new. Opening up with the greatest version of ''Shine On You Crazy Diamond'' I've ever heard, and then continuing into ''Astronomy Domine'', then a tour de force of newer stuff from A Momentary Lapse Of Reason and The Division Bell: ''What Do You Want From Me'', ''Learning To Fly'', ''Keep Talking'', and ''Coming Back To Life'', after that a stunning performance of ''Hey You'', and then back to newer songs: ''A Great Day For Freedom'', a truly wonderful version of ''Sorrow'', and ''High Hopes'', and then an extended version of ''Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2'' beginning with a medley of ''Pt. 1'', and ''The Happiest Days Of Our Lives'', and that's just Disc 1. Disc 2 is comprised of a Collection of songs, that seem to be on the same album, in fact that whole album was performed, what is this album? I Guess it must be, ''DARK SIDE OF THE MOON''!!!!!!!!!!! All the songs sound better than the original, and afterwards, an encore of 3 other Floyd Classics: ''Wish You Were Here'', ''Comfortably Numb'', and ''Run Like Hell'', they all sound better as well, a great way to end a show, and the album. So basically what I'm saying is ''GET THIS ALBUM''.

    If you only buy one Pink Floyd album...

    Pink Floyd is an utterly amazing band, in the studio and on the stage. Pulse is a staggering collection of Pink Floyd's best while they are at their best. It is almost impossible to just like one song on the CDs; both of them are like a very long and emotional journey. I loved it.
