This truly is an amazing and I would wholeheartedly recommend it for any Pink Floyd or David Gilmour fan.
Reminiscent of the "Unplugged" series of concerts by Eric Clapton & co., this features the 1 hour long Meltdown concert and three tracks from the Royal Festival Hall 2002.
The show starts with a chilling acoustic Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-5). The opening few lines of Coming Back To Life put goosebumps on the back of your neck as if it was the first time you'd heard the song, and High Hopes has been tremedously adapted to an acoustic set with stunning Choir backing vocals.
The brand new track Smile is very Gilmour and very good, and as you'd expect, Wish You Were Here fits very well into this style of concert. I'd best describe Robert Wyatt's vocal contribution to Comfortably Numb as "interesting", but this is more than made up for by the usual brilliant ending. Later on we're treated to Shine On (Parts 6-8) which are, not suprisingly, wonderful.
The Royal Festival Hall tracks are great. Richard Wright joins for his own Breakthough from Broken China, and stays on when Bob Geldof guests on a far better Comfortably Numb. This one has the second goosebump-moment of the disc when David Gimour's delivery of "There is no pain, you are receding" sends shivers down your spine...
The extra's are good (I Put A Spell On You with Jools Holland & Mica Paris is far better than the release on Small World Big Band), Shakespeare's Sonnet 18 is beautifully performed, and strongly reminds me of the opening of On The Turning Away.
The menu style and backing track is pleasing. For the soundtrack, I have only listened to the 5.1 presentation and was very impressed - everything is well balanced and the channels aren't over used.
