I did not check the setlist prior to ordering the DVD but I was disappointed with the Pink Floyd tracks as opening of the show. To me, it seems like David Gilmour was not confident enough to do a concert with his own solo album. I think, David Gilmour should learn a lot from Peter Gabriel who has never looked back on his glorious days with Genesis.
See, how Peter has always done with his concert? None of Genesis tune was performed, Speak To Me - Pink Floyd - A Generations Legacy (CD), at all! He was so confident about his solo albums even though he knew I am pretty sure that when he performed one of Genesis songs the crowd would be extremely happy and made the concert much more successful.
But he did not do it. I salute Peter Gabriel on this! Let me put things into perspective. But, have they ever thought that if Gilmour only played his music from his solo albums, would people still Speak To Me - Pink Floyd - A Generations Legacy (CD) him?
It's probably not. I am not saying that his solo albums are bad - not at all. But I think his charisma has been built around Pink Floyd. So, there must be plethora of good memories from the past that surround listeners experience watching this DVD.
I would rather urge Mr Gilmour more to focus on his own work rather than living in the past. If he is doing so, he would not start his show with "Dark Side of The Moon" tracks. It shows his lack of confidence with his own work.
The concert DVD itself is actually fine and I think most people would not have any problems digesting the music and the show. For me personally, nothing is so compelling that I can draw a lesson from this DVD. In fact, I only played it once and no desire to replay the DVD.
David has finally come home and even invited us in to take tea in a sense. For arguably the first time in his solo career it feels to me as if I can connect with a complete artist, free of the baggage of that history we all know about. Minus a few issues the critical side of me can't totally block out, there are moments here where DG breaks through the veneer like never before.
Neither he nor Roger has ever reached the heights separately that they did together, something no Floyd fan would argue. But here David isn't shooting for that and because of that actually succeeds beautifully with this show.
While there are the obligatory PF songs to placate the many there to see them, this DVD is not a "must for every Floyd fan" that many proclaim, it is a must for every DG fan and for any fan of progressive rock traditional.
Some of the finest moments here do not occur on the most predictable classics, but in the less obvious spaces that David is working hardest to sell. What comes through are moments of incredible poignancy and passion, of sides of DG and even Wright that have long been either hidden or simply not pronounced. Moments where everything is shed and Cambridge shines through, boyhood is felt, confusion is revealed but so is relief and wisdom.
Grief for a recently lost friend is shared. Emotions that may once have been kept hidden are let go. Glances of every color of his art seem to be touched on, and the fact that he stands there so emotionally open and so able to finally connect with many of us who have in the past questioned his post-Waters work sometimes with good reason is not just impressive but is really heartwarming to witness. That is what really makes this release so impressive to me.
There is a moment in "A Pocketful of Stones" where David is delivering the most amazing vocal with his head way back and Speak To Me - Pink Floyd - A Generations Legacy (CD) Wright's keys behind him; the level of intimacy and effectiveness in that moment is right up there with something from Joni Mitchell's finest hour. I've never quite felt such a moment from solo Gilmour and on this emotional level you realize that this is really "progressive" for them. They are showing a side beyond past regurgitations of their glory days as fun as they may be that are spectacular and that more than legitimize this release as something beyond "another quasi-Floyd concert.
The presentation could not be more perfect. The atmosphere was draped in a darkness which I really like, but with clean, sharp lights alternately breaking through sharply or bathing the band and audience is cloudy dreaminess; in both cases perfectly attuned to the music.
And the colors and clarity of the lights are the best I've ever witnessed: rather than the sometimes cheesy flashing lights you might find at the corner strip club, these lights have the most amazing colors I can only describe with words like calming and pure. Everything looks great, and the editing is slow but crisp, assuring you never miss anything but not flashing all over like a movie car chase.
Everything is captured in the best sound and visual imaginable. The near nuclear level lighting explosions during the climax of Echoes were really just unbelievable; I can't imagine the assault to the senses from the main floor. Just a few minor Speak To Me - Pink Floyd - A Generations Legacy (CD) I'll offer.
The initial Dark Side material came off as clearly the low point to me. I agree with Gatot that the choice to perform this material was wrong and that given the direction of the show there could have been much more effective openers, something more obscure, less obvious, less safe.
And while the valiant attempt to pull off Arnold Layne was certainly daring, I relish the thought that even the most professional musicians with all of their expensive equipment will never capture the pure essence of a young man named Syd, will never capture the wonder of that moment in time.
On the other hand, the version of "Dark Globe" performed alone by David on acoustic was truly beautiful, almost a musical eulogy to a person for whom words don't suffice. But set aside my criticisms and those of others and try this DVD.
Dave's playing is jubilant; the leads on the majority of tracks are absolutely breathtaking. His voice has held up remarkably well over these years, something many of his contemporaries not just Waters sadly cannot say. Beyond just hitting notes his voice has that velvety, comforting warmth it had in his youth, just seasoned a bit more with time. The band's performance was very professional though clearly acting as backdrop for the Big Dog.
Crosby and Nash offered some decent harmonies and Robert Wyatt's heartfelt solo was a very touching moment. As I mentioned, the material from his new album, performed in full, is quite strong. I haven't heard the studio version but here it was mostly very pleasing, emotionally engaging, and delivered with passion from everyone on the stage. And while delivering the concert-ending finale of his screaming Comfortably Numb guitar solo at a deafening roar, he allows a bit of humor to come through by showing something funny in the audience.
I won't give it away but it was a message perhaps that he doesn't take himself too seriously! This review is entirely a flash impression without many facts about the specifics of the songs or the boatload of extras on disc 2. Others will cover those in greater detail. While I will always harbor some ill-will towards artistic decisions DG has made regarding the Floyd I have to acknowledge his resilience and the success of this fine moment.
I can understand why some have given it 5 stars, though I will need repeated viewings over a few years to decide if I could proclaim it that. But it is not another piece of unnecessary middle-aged affluent-rock product that we should ignore. While it may be too mellow and long-winded in places for those seeking a real rock-show kick in the pants or cutting-edge wild prog, that's not what this one is intended for-let's face it, he's well into Speak To Me - Pink Floyd - A Generations Legacy (CD) 60s now.
While we may never get to experience the excitement of the true PF together again you'll realize watching this that we don't need to. This was likely as good as it gets for the David fan, so hopefully we won't have to watch the Floyd legacy degraded by a half-hearted catty reunion and the hype it would bring.
With this show Gilmour has left history a fine document to his past, which I appreciate. There must be a high quality video recording somewhere. I wish the two of them could finally get it to the fans who have waited long enough. Shine On. Watching David deliver this vocal about his old friend Roger Barrett, I thought of what he said in an interview after Syd passed: "I now have this lasting regret that I was so obedient to the family's wishes not to disturb his peace.
A few years ago my wife Polly said to me 'how would you feel if he dies? And I am. I should have gone down there, knocked on his door and said, Hey, let's go for a pint. Because we were friends. I can't see that seeing an old friend would have done any damage. All of us probably have someone we could say that about-under different circumstances Speak To Me - Pink Floyd - A Generations Legacy (CD) course.
Perhaps that's what makes the sentiments of the song so powerful to the listener. Nice to meet you David. I must admit that I've never been a big Pink Floyd fan. In fact, I think that they are one of the most overrated bands on this site and elsewhere.
This is indeed a high quality product! The picture and sound quality is as perfect as it gets. Well, one difference is that Remember That Night has a much warmer and more organic sound. This is due to the more extensive use of acoustic guitars, lap steel guitar, grand piano, Hammond organ and male harmony vocals by the band themselves and also on some songs by guests David Crosby and Graham Nash.
This approach is also reflected in the songs chosen, with Gilmore's most recent solo album On An Island performed in its entirety here having a much warmer and more organic and acoustic, down to earth sound compared to most Pink Floyd material.
And among the Pink Floyd songs played here we get things like the semi-acoustic Fat Old Sun which also has that warm, almost folky sound. This song is much better here than on the studio album Atom Heart Mother, on which it sounds rather boring in my opinion!
Here it really comes to life and the second electric part of the song is really good. The atmosphere on the stage is more personal, with Gilmour basically being surrounded by his best friends with David Bowie and Robert Wyatt as guests plus the presence of Wright.
The stage is smaller but not the audiencebringing the musicians closer together and giving the show more of a band feeling, almost as if they were playing in a smaller club even though it is in the enormous Royal Albert Hall. And most important of all, I think, the show is about the musicians and the music rather than things like huge video screens, inflatable pigs, aeroplanes flying across the auditorium crashing in the side of the stage and all of those in my opinion exaggerated and unnecessary!
Remember That Night is just about some very talented people playing their instruments with emotion and enthusiasm only supported by some great lighting, lasers and a bit of smoke and having fun on stage and off stage too, as can be seen on the documentaries on the bonus disc. For the Prog fan, I guess that the 20 minute plus Echoes is the most interesting moment in the show. I must say that this performance outshines the studio version by a wide margin.
Indeed, all the songs on Remember That Night tend to outshine their original studio versions! These are then, in my opinion, the ultimate versions of most of these songs. And the choice of songs could hardly be bettered, even though one could have expected a couple of songs from David's previous two solo albums. The On An Island tracks are very good, but hardly exceptional. It really shows great confidence to perform the whole new album live. David Bowie makes an excellent performance on Comfortably Numb.
He really makes this song his own. And it's really great to see Bowie so fit and extremely good-looking as always, I would like to look like that when I'm his age! Arnold Layne, is just fun. The other guest is Robert Wyatt, an artist I don't know very well.
His contribution here is very low key and he just plays a cornet solo. The extra material on the second disc is exactly like it should be; informative and entertaining - it really adds to the value of the product.
I like Gilmour's distinctive guitar sound and his vocals are really good as well it really makes you wonder why Roger Waters ever was allowed near the microphone! I'm now officially converted to Gilmour-ism. Though good, the weakest link lies in the On An Island tracks. They are not up to par with the rest. But this is still highly recommended and certainly my favourite Pink Floyd related product. While refusing to reform Floyd, possibly avoiding some possible bad blood with WatersGilmour took care of Wright's envy of Floyd by taking him on the road while promoting his latest solo album, the very soporific On An Island, which makes the second bulk of the set list, after the Floyd material.
It is hard to get to the center of it, or why the album is so popular. These essays try to get to the center of that mystery, but it still falls short. The essays are very thorough and well-written. Every piece on the album is dissected and examined with microscopic precision. Along with the examination of the album, the reader gets to learn about other interesting things such as Pink Floyd live shows and the 'The Wizard of Oz' phenomenon. The book has several weak parts though.
Also, the book does not have the opinions from the most important authors - the band members of Pink Floyd. We get to read very little from the band members and the recording process of the album. That would have enriched the book much more. The book is still worth reading if one can find it.
One good reason for reading it is because 'Dark Side of the Moon' is now emerging as arguably the most important rock album ever made. This is a very academic book that is only really for musical experts or people who know their Phyrigian from their Lydian! That aside, there are some interesting insights into the music of this innovative and influential band if you can only get past all the technical jargon or have a tame Professor of Musicology at hand!
