At long last Pink Floyd: Pulse has arrived on DVD, and Floyd fans already know it's a major cause to celebrate. The original VHS release was a milestone bestseller, but it seemed to take forever for the DVD to arrive, with numerous delays while Floyd guitarist David Gilmour and long-time Floyd producer James Guthrie labored to restore, re-edit, and remix this legendary concert video in 5.1-channel Dolby Surround Sound. The resulting two-disc set was well worth the wait: While the limitations of the original video source are still evident in the sometimes-hazy image quality (Gilmour would later admit the concert should have been captured on film), Floyd fans will unanimously agree that Pulse has never looked or sounded better, and only the absence of group co-founder Roger Waters prevents this from being the ultimate document of Pink Floyd in performance. (Even without Waters, it's easily one of the group's most impressive stage productions.) Gracefully directed with minimal intrusion by veteran music video and concert director David Mallet, and shot on video during Pink Floyd's two-week stint at London's Earls Court Exhibition Centre in October 1994, this 145-minute performance (from Floyd's Division Bell tour) is a sonic marvel to behold. Under a massive arch festooned with then-state-of-the-art laser, lighting, and projection systems, the 1987 incarnation of Pink Floyd (Gilmour, keyboardist Richard Wright, and drummer Nick Mason) and their stellar supporting band kicks off with "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" (a loving tribute to Floyd co-founder Syd Barrett), followed by four tracks from The Division Bell, two from 1987's A Momentary Lapse of Reason, "Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)" from 1979's magnum opus The Wall, and leading into intermission with absolutely stunning performance of "One of These Days," the timeless opening track from 1971's Meddle.

The centerpiece of Disc 2 is a near-perfect performance of 1974's Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety--reason enough to make this a must-have DVD for even the most casual Floyd admirers. And while no one will ever re-create the sheer magnificence of Clare Torry's original tour de force vocals on "The Great Gig in the Sky," it's safe to say that backup singers Sam Brown, Claudia Fontaine, and Durga McBroom deliver the next best thing, in addition to seamless contributions throughout the concert. After the closing heartbeat of "Eclipse," the concert ends with encore performances of "Wish You Were Here," "Comfortably Numb," and a no-holds-barred, pyrotechnically explosive rendition of The Wall's "Run Like Hell," all showcasing Gilmour's guitar mastery with frequent close-ups of his picking and fret-work as seen throughout the concert. (Like Gilmour, Mason and Wright were never dynamic onstage, and that's true here as well, but their technical precision is fully evident, and while guitarist Tim Renwick and saxophonist Dick Parry are each given moments to shine, bassist Guy Pratt is a worthy substitution for Waters, especially when vocally sparring with Gilmour on "Run Like Hell.")

With beautiful packaging, an 8-page booklet, and menu designs by long-time Floyd associate Storm Thorgerson, the DVDs offer an abundance of bonus features including "Bootlegging the Bootleggers," featuring surprisingly good-quality "boot" video performances of "What Do You Want From Me?," "On the Turning Away," "Poles Apart," and "Marooned." The surreal round-ratio screen films seen throughout the concert can all be viewed independently (still in round format, and several offered in both original and alternate versions). Music videos for "Learning to Fly" and "Take It Back" are included on Disc 1, along with "Tour Stuff" including maps, itineraries, and stage plans for the 1994 tour. "Say Goodbye to Life as We Know It" is a playful backstage video (mostly involving the production staff's ongoing quest for a good pint of beer), and after delivering a heartfelt introduction to Pink Floyd's 1996 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (with Roger Waters and Syd Barrett acknowledged by Gilmour), Smashing Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan joins Gilmour and Wright for a moving acoustic performance of "Wish You Were Here" (directed at Waters, perhaps?). Additional features include album cover art, a photo gallery, and the concert-only audio choice between a 448kbps audio bitstream or a higher-quality 640kbps stream for higher-quality DVD players. The system set-up feature ensures that audiophiles will achieve optimum speaker performance in keeping with Pink Floyd's exacting technical standards. In tandem with the superior concert presentation, these features make Pulse one of the best--if not the best--music DVDs of 2006, guaranteed to satisfy Floyd fans for many years to come. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD... HORRIBLE PRICE July 13 2006
By Tom
Format:DVD
If any of you have checked amazon.com you'll notice that instead of the whopping $27.99 they post here in canada, the price is $14.99. Now I'm no mathematician , but that seems to me like its a whole heck of a lot more money than the 10% difference between our currencies. This DVD is great, but don't buy it here, or anywhere in canada for that matter, because the bloodletting record companies are screwing us out of our hard earned money just because we're a few miles north of the border. I personally would rather pay a few extra bucks in shipping for overall savings than give these cheapskates an extra $13 just for being in Canada. Get it from the american site, and stop letting these greedy pigs make us pay more for being Canadian.

I had forgotten how great a major concert can be. Over the years I'd lost some interest in Pink Floyd, too commercial, slick, etc, but this show is GREAT, the music, lighting, props, and film at the show as well as production value of this DVD is top notch. I'd gladly spend big bucks to see a show like this. I'm used to much smaller venues these days, but getting 30 to 40 thousand people together for a Vegas style sound and light experience is really something special and remarkable. The crowd looks suitably blown away, it got me high too, (and brought tears to my eyes during the vocal solos of Great Gig in the Sky). Having Dark Side Of the Moon performed in entirety is great (lots attention to the trippy film and light show). The encore (Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb and Run Like Hell) is powerful, with the finale' of lights and explosions being over the top but fun too. The only other DVD I've seen close to this is Peter Gabriel's GROWING UP tour, but this is much more intense and cohesive.

The DVD has alot of special features that I haven't yet explored, but I'm sure they will be fun.

What impressed me most was the way the band appeard to have fun, playing consciously, relaxed and yet restrained, fully aware of their effect... It made me seriously think this is a good expression of the peak of our civilization (union of technology, art and consciousness, materiality and spirituality presented as entertainment, but delivering much more.) While I missed Waters and wondered how much better or different it would have been with him, the overall, overwhelming experience of the show is complete.

For even a casual fan of Pink Floyd this is a must see.

Amazing news! Here is the lastest on the P.U.L.S.E. DVD from Brain Damage:
"PULSE DVD DATE!: Here's the news that many of you have been eagerly awaiting: the release date of the PULSE DVD! With a double-G sound production (Gilmour and Guthrie!) the DVD has been in production for some time, but the good news is that (in Europe at least) you only have to wait for the 4th November to get your hands on it. We are currently trying to get worldwide dates, and as soon as these, and details of the complete package, are available, we'll let you know!
-- Posted 14 September 2003 © Brain Damage --"
Beautiful. ALSO - "Pompeii" will be on DVD October 21. NICE! Finally.

5.0 out of 5 stars PULSE - A perfect farewell to Pink Floyd July 12 2006
By Stones
Format:DVD
This is the one DVD that just about any Pink Floyd fan has been anticipating for the last 11 years or so. And with all the bonus features included in this package, they will probably not be disappointed. When I initially looked at the package and it said 're-edited', right away I was a bit worried. As it turns out, I didn't really need to be worried about this feature. Most of the concert video uses the same shots as the original VHS edit, however there are some exceptions.

Generally the exceptions are very subtle. Where in the original edit the conceptual films on the circular screen were given more attention (on this edition as a bonus feature, they are all included in their entirety ' some with alternate versions), the re-edit has more shots of the band playing. This change should be welcome by fans, chances are the reason they're watching...is to watch the band.

There is one un-welcomed change for me personally, during 'Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2', when the screen is being 'scribbled out' with a pen (if you don't know what I'm talking about, you'll just have to watch), the word 'ENIGMA' was doctored out of the shot. Back in 1994, there was a discussion among Pink Floyd hard core fans as to the identity of this so-called 'Enigma'. Clues were given via the Pink Floyd Official site (you can probably still read about it on fan sites), this was apparently the boldest 'appearance' of Enigma when this concert was originally broadcast live on pay-per-view.

Besides the conceptual film(s) feature, other worth-while features include unreleased performances of 'What Do You Want From Me', 'On The Turning Away', 'Poles Apart', and 'Marooned.

I bought PULSE today, and so far, so good. Sounds pretty great so far, and looks alright. It's too bad it couldn't have been in widescreen, but fullscreen will have to do. One thing I HAVE to comment on, however, are the factual errors with the tour map and itinerary. If you are going to include a list of the tour dates, as well as a map of tour cities, then take the time to get it right. The map shows like two Canadian dates--there were many more than that. Also, the DVD provides a listing of what is supposed to be a comprehensive list of all cities on the tour. I went to see them on June 28, 1994, in Edmonton, AB, Canada, but according to the DVD tour listing, I guess they weren't even in Edmonton at all! They just skipped right over that date. Doesn't make much sense to me--it's not like they RUSHED this product out. They took months and months to release this thing. A little quality control should have been in order. So, I have to give them a bit of a beating over that, even though it is a miniscule point. It is a [lack of] quality issue, nevertheless...
