  • Summary: Live album featuring Waters' solo material and numberous Pink Floyd tracks.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 4
  2. Negative: 0 out of 4
  1. As the man who wrote Pink Floyd's lyrics, he is far more concerned with their meaning than his old bandmates, and you can hear that in his singing, which is emphasized without robbing the music of its magisterial power. In fact, with a band boasting several guitarists - primarily Doyle Bramhall II, Andy Fairweather Low, and Snowy White - to make up for the lack of Pink Floyd's David Gilmour, Waters effectively recreates the sound of his Pink Floyd work.
  2. Bereft of the spectacle that is Pink Floyd these days, it's hard to work up much enthusiasm for still another round of new versions of old classics.
  3. There's admirable sonic purity to these live recordings, but that only underscores the astonishing lack of verve in the performances.
  4. A couple of hours negotiating the treacherous whirlpools of Waters's fears, paranoia and loathing can still prove a slog, mind, no matter how stately the settings.
