...this incredibly special event serves as a potent reminder of David Gilmour’s immense contribution to music and, more importantly, of his continuing development as an artist. With hours of content, and an incredible attention to detail, this is an essential purchase for any Floyd fan. 10
For Floyd fans and newcomers alike, Roger Waters has delivered an album that casts a weary and frequently horrified eye over the societal changes of the last thirty years and whilst the view is not pretty, it most assuredly is compelling. 9
I have no doubt that Floyd fans like myself will still snap this album up, and will, to an extent, enjoy it. The experience, however, is ultimately marred by the myriad niggles that are present in this vinyl set. A shame.
...there’s a feeling that this is the album that Roger always wanted to release and it is surely deserving of the title ‘masterpiece’.
If you want to celebrate with the Mule you won’t be disappointed, but the uninitiated should probably explore one of their studio albums first.
A modern classic, Freedom to glide have created a true masterpiece that mingles beauty with sadness over its fifty gorgeous minutes.
A worthwhile, if flawed purchase that sheds greater light on one of the most enigmatic albums ever made.
...for the 5.1 mix, the books and the extras, this is worth a fair mark at worst and certainly not the reams of criticism currently devoted to it.
