    I think for that particular show David should've dusted out more songs from original Pompeii setlist. So what if some of them are Roger's.

    He has no qualm with playing songs solely credited to Roger, like "Money" which had been a staple the whole tour. The issue with him not doing "Echoes" was that it was as much Rick's, and to him David it didn't feel right to do it without him which I respect. This show does feature "Great Gig In The Sky" but I suspect that was done much more as a tribute, and a spotlight on his backing singers too.

    Plus, as much as he's willing to do a lot of the old songs, he's more interested in moving forward with his new material. He said as much in one video on this page, that it wouldn't feel right to him if he didn't tour without a new album to promote. I respect that, and it was a major reason why I was excited to see him live. He wasn't just doing a nostalgia show, but also doing something that was more important to him at that moment than his old band's songs.

    I saw Live at Pompeii at the cinema tonight. I was pretty impressed.

    I mean, it is just a bog standard David Gilmour concert in regards to the set list but the venue and lighting is incredible. One of These Days is the highlight

    Absolutely incredible! Even if it wasn't the whole concert, at 2h, it was amazing nonetheless.

    Yeah, it was pretty good, could be a bit louder. :-) And the public in cinema was much better than for your average cinema blockbuster. I had to walk 4 km for this. :-)

    I confess I did not know that song with war-zone animation... I somehow stopped following after On an Island, so this is new to me:

    Am I seeing this right- Live at Pompeii doesn't get a released on BRD until end of this month? I thought it was released already, maybe was looking at something else or just totally missed it and it's still pre-order.

    Yes, there will be an encore screening in some markets of the theatrical cut (which is missing several songs: "Faces of Stone", "The Blue", "Money", "Fat Old Sun", "Coming Back to Life", "On an Island", "Today", and "The Girl in the Yellow Dress" which is not on the standard version either) before the full Blu-ray/DVD/album version drops on the 29th. Looking forward to cranking up the complete video in 5.1 surround at home!

    Between Final Cut, AMLoR and Division Bell, which one do you guys prefer?

    I have tried many attempts in the past, but I can never remember what's going on, just that it's not great. I've always enjoyed High Hopes and now I have a new fascination for Sorrow since the David Gilmour Live at Pompeii screening.

    The Final Cut is absolutely worst piece of music that was ever released by PF/DG/RW so there you go.
    Division Bell is the best of them, ultimately. AMLOR is nice too, it just became an unfortunate victim of 80s sound design/production.

    I have great affection for The Final Cut. While it does disrupt the flow a little bit, adding "When the Tigers Broke Free" to the middle of the first side also made the album far stronger. Gilmour's solos are fantastic (even my least favourite, on the title track, is one that I can hum note-for-note), the drum sound is massive, and Waters' singing and lyrics are jaw-dropping.

    The later albums... not so much. The Division Bell is a fun listen in 5.1 however.

    „The Final Cut by Roger Waters, performed by Pink Floyd“ of course. :-)

    I think all three suffer from the same problem, which is that they are very good EPs buried in bloated full-lengths. So I can only really choose my favourite based on the strength of the 'hidden EPs,' which would probably render AMLOR the winner. I know, I know... convoluted. For the record:

    The Final Cut EP that shoulda been:
    Your Possible Pasts
    One of the Few
    The Hero's Return 1&2
    The Final Cut
    Not Now John

    A Momentary Lapse of Reason EP that shoulda been:
    Signs of Life
    Learning to Fly
    A New Machine 1
    Terminal Frost
    A New Machine 2
    Sorrow

    The Division Bell EP that shoulda been:
    Cluster One
    Keep Talking
    Marooned
    High Hopes

    Final Cut is definitely the best of the three. Probably among the most depressing albums I've ever heard, but I quite enjoy it.
