Ive got the same issues as I do with PULSE, the performances are too sterile and too close to the studio originals to qualify as a decent live album
Ive posted further thoughts on this album (and its video counterpart) on the MLoR thread
but I did see them on this tour, two nights in a row, so the official live album release can never live up to my memories anyway

as with PULSE, I think the outofprint VHS concert video is more essential, as the thing they could give us in concert you cant get on your hifi at home is that legendary visual experience
fortunately there is a welldistributed slicklooking pirate dvd of the old VHS video currently available in respectable mainstream stores, its kind of cool to compare and contrast with the more posterity-minded PULSE
Too close to the studio originals? Really? Have you even listened to this live album? On the Turning Away is about two minutes longer than the original and has a much better guitar solo here. I can say the same thing about Comfortably Numb. All the Momentary tracks have a beautiful live mood on this album, which makes them sound an awful lot better than the studio originals, where they have this distinctive eighties feel all over them.

I can't tell you how much I disagree with you here. But I guess we are all entitled to our opinions.

Agreed about, there is a world of difference between Sorrow live and studio, especially.

Was so excited when this was released. To re-live those concerts at the time was so wonderful. I was SOOOOO into it all back then.
Much prefer this over 'Pulse' as this was the more polished record. Overdubs galore in the studio?

Delicate Sound of Thunder - in cinemas October 15th, one night only!

Just announced - Pink Floyd: Delicate Sound of Thunder will be shown in cinemas for the first time on October 15th. You can experience the restored, remixed and re-edited film of the 1988 New York performance in your nearest participating cinema. Those of you who have seen the new version via the Later Years box set will know what an incredible job has been done with this, so a great opportunity to see it on a large screen, with a great sound system (including Dolby Atmos at participating cinemas).

This was announced on the 20th, postponed on the 21st, and copied from an internet article on the 29th. Gee thanks. Make sure you let us know a month after they reschedule it so we miss out entirely.

Maybe they should stop this nonsense and just release it on Blu-Ray as a standalone concert like Pulse.

That would certainly make the YouTube channels uploading snippets of it and such look like fools, and plus they pretty much uploaded the entirety of Pulse "remastered" individually.

Definitely think it should be sold standalone, there would be a lot of demand for it, more so than the big box of goodies which is beyond reach for many. Pretty impressive box-set.

I think I might spin up the DSoT bluray this weekend actually with a nice beer. 8)

I watched DSOT Blu-Ray other day and it was so good. I agree it really should be released standalone as it would generate good sales Its amazing what they have done with the footage with the re-edit so crisp and clear.

I got the boxset at the end of January but i'm surprised how the price has not gone down at all over the year.
