A two-CD live collection from a band left splintered by the departure of bassist-songwriter Roger Waters, Pulse is perhaps best noted for the blinking red light that was set in its spine upon initial release. It contains the remaining band (with guest musicians) performing the entire Dark Side of the Moon album, the novelty of which wears off soon after the crowd noise interrupts any potential intimacy. The crowd also sings along for several songs, which makes this either a great audio-video document or a misguided attempt at replicating the live experience. --Rob O'Connor --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The claim to fame of Pulse, Pink Floyd's two-CD live album released in 1995, is the live performance of Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety. If you're a casual Pink Floyd fan, that's great; if you're a devoted fan, you're apt to be disappointed by the lack of nuance expressed in a concert setting. It has obviously been a few years since I listened to Pulse because my memory told me it was superior to 1988's Delicate Sound of Thunder live two-CD album - my memory was wrong. I'm not saying Pulse isn't a quality performance or that fans won't enjoy it, but to my ears it clearly lacks the sort of passion and energy that was captured on Delicate Sounds of Thunder. The two live albums of the reconstituted, post-Waters Pink Floyd share a number of songs in common, and I prefer the Thunder versions in almost every single case. Here, the long instrumental sections of Shine on You Crazy Diamond, for example, seem to drag on interminably, while on Delicate Sound of Thunder each minute of the music built up toward a pressurized unleashing of vocals.

The first disc features a healthy portion of material originating after Waters' acrimonious exit from the band. There are two tracks from 1987's A Momentary Lapse of Region (Sorrow and Learning to Fly) and five from 1994's The Division Bell (What Do You Want from Me, A Great Day for Freedom, High Hopes, Keep Talking, and Coming Back to Life). These are intermixed alongside some older Pink Floyd tracks: Shine on You Crazy Diamond from Wish You Were Here, Astronomy Domine from 1967's The Piper at the Gates, and two classic cuts from The Wall. Another Brick in the Wall (Part Two) is good but seems to lack a little oomph, but Hey You is delivered with the passion and energy that make it easily the most impressive song on either of the Pulse CDs.

The creatively and (by this point) morally bankrupt Pink Floyd stagger ahead. With the black light poster market effectively cornered by them and Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd have, as of 2000, released three live albums in the past twelve years. Three of their last five records have been live albums. I suppose if you want yet another version of Run Like Hell to go with the other four (The Wall, Delicate Sound of Thunder, Is There Anybody Out There, and the new DVD of The Wall), go ahead.

Pink Floyd's Pulse was released in June of 1995. The album was recorded on the band's 1994 European tour to support The Division Bell album. The reason for this album was at the end of the American leg of the tour(I saw them in Foxboro, MA in May of 1994 with 55,000 fans embracing them on one of their three nights in Mass), they decided to resurrect something they had not done since their 1975 US Tour, Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety. Pulse was superbly produced by guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour and longtime engineer James Guthrie whom also engineered and mixed the album. Some songs had solos dubbed in from other shows because either the playing was awful or the solo came in a bar late. Hence, the album was not re-recorded in the studio unlike many live albums. The first disc is a potpourri of material from Astronomy Domine, Hey You, Shine on You Crazy Diamond(pts. 1-5, 7) and a stellar Another Brick in the Wall(pt.2) to Learning to Fly, Sorrow, What Do You Want From Me and High Hopes. The second disc is the complete Dark Side album in its entirety plus encores of Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb and Run Like Hell. Except for the jam in the middle of Money, the whole of Dark Side of the Moon sounds just like the studio LP, but almost better in some cases like Time, The Great Gig in the Sky(sorry but Sam Brown did the first part way better than Clare Torry IMHO) and Us and Them. The rest is superb as well. The album originally came packaged with a blinking light on the spine of the CD artwork. The album was an instant smash hitting #1 in both the US and UK and selling over three million in the US alone immediately. This is the best live album ever.

I'm not a fan of THE DIVISION BELL by a long shot. A few good songs on an hour-plus long album just doesn't cut it, even if it does complete my Pink Floyd Studio album collection. But the DIVISION BELL tour, as captured on this CD set, must have been a sight to behold. True, it does contain "Keep Talking" and "What Do You Want From Me," which I hate, but overall it's a terrific album.
The version of "Shine On" is fantastic and almost makes me wish Dave had handled the vocals on the original. "Astronomy Domine" is an okay version, but the UMMAGUMMA live version is much better. I really like the versions of "Hey You" and "Another Brick in the Wall (Part II)." Whoever handled Roger's vocals on "Hey You" was very good.
The live version of DARK SIDE OF THE MOON on Disk Two is fantastic. I like the version of "Speak to Me" very much. It was nice to have it actually building suspense. The album version was too short, really. "Great Gig in The Sky" is a great version as well. Whichever 'woo-woo' girl handled the second portion of it was better than the original singer. "Money"s breakdown section was pretty good. My only problem with this version is "Any Colour You Like." The album version is one of my favorite instrumentals, but the version contained here is fairly boring. I've heard bootlegs from other shows of the tour, and I wish they had used a different date's version. Dave handles "Brain Damage/Eclipse" fairly well, but Roger is missed.
The encores are pretty good versions of "Wish You Were Here," "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell.
