PINK FLOYD / Is There Anybody Out There? The Wall Live [2000]

I'm going to get this out of the way, and I'm going to get crucified for this as well, but I think Pink Floyd's live recording of The Wall is better than the studio album.
Hear me out, before you grab your pitchforks and torches. Now, The Wall was meant to mimic that of a theatrical extravaganza and the studio album did a mighty fine job at it but the live version does better as theatrics are meant to be live. The bitter passion of performing in front of a live audience is very evident in Roger Waters' voice. With excellent sound quality, perfect performances, extended songs and 2 new songs how can you go wrong? This is the next best thing to the real theatrical deal you're going to get these days.

Studio or Live doesn't matter to me. It's Roger at his best and that's 5 persecuted rock star complexes out of 5 any day of the week. Nice review.
