    One of, if not, the best live Pink Floyd album, October 8, 2000

    When I first saw “Pulse” in stores I thought it was a greatest hits album released so that the remaining Pink members could make one last cash grab. Was I mistaken. The live “Pulse” album consists of the entire “Dark Side Of The Moon” album along with some of the best cuts from “The Wall” and “Wish You Were Here”. It also includes excellent selections from post-Waters albums, “A Momentary Lapse Of Reason” and “The Division Bell”. Another aspect that makes this album even more complete is the appearence of Astronomy Domine from their debut album, “Piper At The Gates Of Dawn”. Overall, Gilmour and company belt out great versions of Pink classics with “random precision” and prove they still have what got them called “the best conceptual album writers of all time and one of the top three bands in history”. The choice cuts would definitely have to be Comfotably Numb, Wish You Were Here, Run Like Hell, Brain Damage, Eclipse and from the 1994 “Division Bell” album High Hopes. As an added bonus, the two CD set comes in a deluxe slipcase package with an extensive booklet complete with tour pictures, equipment and track listings. An absolute must. Listen and you will understand why.

    Transported once again, a surprise ride!, June 3, 2006

    Like so many others, I reluctantly and sadly gave up on Pink Floyd after The Wall. Final Cut is too dismal, and without Roger Waters, how could they possibly still be the true Pink Floyd we all know and love? I missed them terribly, and I wanted more. In my bias (and I’m not proud of this), Momentary Lapse seemed more a solo album, or perhaps an offshoot of PF, but not the real Pink Floyd, and I scarcely gave it a chance. Not long ago, a friend loaned me Pulse, mainly to hear the entire performance of Dark Side (which is excellent). The other familiar songs were good, too, even the singles I had heard from Momentary Lapse.

    Before returning the CD to my friend, I felt obliged from loyalty to the great years to at least give the unknowns a serious ear. Randomly, I started with “Keep Talking.” To my complete wonder and amazement, here was a true Pink Floyd song, as pure and as enthralling as anything from Animals or Wish You Were Here. It must be a lucky fluke, I thought. My second choice was “Sorrow,” simply because it is long. Again, I found myself grinning and drawn in exactly like during their prime. It was wonderful to realize that the mistake was mine. These songs definitely ARE true Pink Floyd, and taking nothing away from Roger Waters, he is NOT an essential ingredient after all. So I went back – “What Do You Want With Me,” “Coming Back to Life,” “A Great Day For Freedom,” “High Hopes,” and “Sorrow” again (even better the second time). I felt like I had discovered a rare gem I never knew existed – another lost Pink Floyd masterpiece. How could I have been so blind and so deaf? Since 1980, I have thirsted for more Pink Floyd, and here it has been all along!

    To those others like me who may have given up on them and have always wanted more, give Pulse a chance. Listen closely, turn it up, and see if you are not transported to the same place that PF has always been able to take us. I defy you to hear that little concert within the concert and not run out and buy Division Bell and Momentary Lapse. Gilmour, Mason, and Wright, please forgive my own lapse. Thank you all once again.

    Forget the three stars shown — I voted five, but Amazon’s website goofed. This one’s a five, believe me!

    Somehow, I skipped over Pink Floyd while getting older and never really noticed them. A longing for some good British band music led me to give Pulse a shot and boy was I surprised. I’d always thought their songs that I heard on pop radio were sort of ‘down’ because of the lyrics. Yes, there are negative themes here, but there are an equal number of passages where the minor keys are resolved into beautiful, shining majors. Gilmour is a stupendous, versatile guitar player. I have to rate him as one of the best lead guitarists I’ve ever heard — intelligent work that doesn’t rely on cliches that are repeated over and over (Ever take a close listen to Clapton, even going back to the original Layla? I honestly don’t know what all the fuss is about him. He’s smooth, but not really very inventive — and he plays off pitch, as well!). These two CD’s will satisfy anyone thirsting for guitar elevated to an art form.

    At first I was disappointed because Gilmour’s voice on these CD’s doesn’t sound like I was expecting. It’s not as clear as the studio versions of these songs that were recorded 25 years ago. But after listening several times, I actually like his mature voice better. It has a nice quality to it.

    What amazes me is that these three remaining Floyds have played these songs live countless times. But there is not even a hint of jadedness here. They really put everything they had into the music and that’s impressive. The recordings are superb for live recordings.

    I could go on — great backup vocals, great bass, neat interchanges between the fans and the band. The version of “Money” on this album is just really great. It makes the original studio version sound very canned. This one breathes with interesting parts that’ll have the darned thing going through your head over and over and over again.

    If you’re even half interested in Pink Floyd, you won’t be sorry with this purchase.
