PINK FLOYD / Delicate Sound Of Thunder [1988]

While on tour for their...ahem...Water-ed down new record A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, Pink Floyd recorded a few of their stadium packed shows for their first official live album, 1988's Delicate Sound Of Thunder.
A collection of a few songs from Momentary Lapse and all the obvious hits from their more successful records, Floyd recreate the sound of their albums perfectly. So perfectly it's actually quite boring to sit through nearly 2 hours of listening to David Gilmour and an army of hired help on auto-pilot. While they capture the sound, they seem to forget about the passion and it hurts the listening pleasure quite a bit. Skip this snooze-fest.
