Customer Reviews

Simply the greatest.

This album is one of my most cherished musical experiences. The emotional impact and feel of the tracks are simply stunning, and in some cases, are much better than the studio versions (especially "Every Stranger's Eyes" and "Amused to Death"). I simply cannot recommend this any higher, and I suggest you get a good pair of headphones and take yourself on this wonderful musical journey.

Easily one of the best live albums of all time

I don't know how anyone could possibly prefer "Pulse" or Gilmour's "Live in Gdansk" to this. Both of those albums are from hollow, money making, "greatest hits" stadium tours supporting mediocre new studio albums. Gilmour sounds like a constipated old man singing dry, emotionless vocals on both of those albums. Now tell me who's sold out. Now that's out of the way I can get on to actually reviewing this album. On this album, Waters reconnects with his Pink Floyd roots while at the same time playing his fantastic solo material, which is much more than I can say for anything David Gilmour has done since 1975. In some cases, the solo material, particularly the four songs from "Amused to Death" (Tracks 17-20), actually outshines the Pink Floyd material. However, the Pink Floyd material here is amazingly strong, much better than the pathetic renditions found on "Pulse" and "Live in Gdansk". This is in part because Waters, unlike Gilmour, actually wrote the songs, and actually cares about their meaning. It's also much better because Waters has a fantastic backing band, with guitarists that really give Gilmour's guitar work with Pink Floyd justice, as well as legends Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, who played on Waters' solo albums "The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking" and "Amused to Death". The vocalist who sings Gilmour's parts from Pink Floyd songs, particularly on "Dogs", actually often does better than Gilmour, who I've always considered a mediocre singer, especially when compared to Waters' unique, emotional vocal style. Ths song selection is not just a "greatest hits" set either, although Waters made sure to please casual fans by playing many of Pink Floyd's most well known songs. You don't see Gilmour attempting obscure Floyd classics such as "Southampton Dock" and "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun". It's apparent that all Gilmour wants from recent tours is money. Who cares if he actually plays well? At least Waters treats his fans with respect. All in all, if you have to choose just one Floyd related live album, I highly reccomend this one. I can gurantee you that it's a miracle!

Hosewater, the artist who performed this act was Roger Waters, a former band member of Pink Floyd. He's not a tribute. In fact, he composed most of these songs' lyrics.

Biography

Born: September 6, 1944 in Great Bookham, Cambridge, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Roger Waters was Pink Floyd's grand conceptualist, the driving force behind such albums as Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall. In the wake of Syd Barrett's departure, Waters emerged as a formidable songwriter, but it's this stretch of '70s albums — each one nearly symphonic in its reach — that established him as a distinctive, idiosyncratic voice within rock and, following his departure from Floyd in 1985, he continued to create new works in this vein (notably,...
