Roger Waters - In the Flesh Live (DVD)

With nothing new forthcoming from the Pink Floyd camp, I've been on a bit of a side project binge lately. I chanced upon Roger Waters' 'In the Flesh' DVD today at best buy and snatched it up. I am happy to say that I was very pleasently surprised with the content.

The concert is made up of mostly Pink Floyd material, and mostly the hits at that (with a few nice nuggets tossed in for some fun flavoring... "Southampton Dock" in particular is incredible!), andthe musicians that adorn the stage alongside Roger are extremely talented.

As the band play through such classics as the overplayed "Another Brick In the Wall, Pt. 2", a fiery rendition of "Comfortably Numb", "Welcome to the Machine", and a version of "Dogs" that could actually rival any PF boots I have heard, I was held enthralled by the sheer talent of the act.

There are also some Waters solo tunes in the set, like "Perfect Sense", "Amused To Death" and a personal favorite of mine "The Bravery of Being Out of Range". From start to finish the show is top notch.

Also of note are the extras which include a very cool Behind the Scenes documentary, some photgraphs, and lyrics, and band biographies as well.

The production on the DVD is fantastic, with a crisp clear sound, and a stunning picture, this is one you have to see to believe. If you are in need of a Pink Floyd fix, and sick of holding your breath for anything new, check out this disc (that is, if you haven't already).
