I see often that many fans dislike the DSOT live album very extremly. I often wonder if I could be really the only floyd fan which enjoys this album (in fact I like it almost better than PULSE).
For me it`s maybe lesser perfect and maybe lesser true to the studio albums but for that it sounds (at least for my ears) more live than PULSE. Harder and rougher than usual. And it has my altime favourite version of Confortably Numb.
IĀ´m really curious: IĀ´m the onyl one who likes this album? And why itĀ´s so unpopular (even with fans who are not completly against the Roger-less Floyd)?
well, DSOT is great, but PULSE has the whole DSOTM and personally I like the songs from The Division Bell more than the songs from AMLOR
I love them both, they're both fabulous imho.
Well I do not have the Pulse album so by default Delicate Sound Of Thunder is one of the best live Pink Floyd albums in my collection.
I saw performances of that tour twice so when I do listen to it, I have some memories of the live experience. But I must admit that in the past 20 years, some of that experience and the tracks from that album have lost a bit of their shine for me.
Is There Anybody Out There? gets a little more love from me these days but DSOT is still a good live album from the boys.
I've honestly listened to DSOT so little that I'm not sure which songs I liked. I do remember thinking it was pretty good, but I think I like Pulse better just because it has more of TDB which is much better than AMLOR imo.

I always thought that the performances on DSOT sounded a bit tired. They got a lot more dynamic later on.
I've always liked DSOT too; that octave-doubled bass solo and the call-and-response in Money is the bomb! The whole album feels good; the band is just fantastic (that is really what I think
) and the whole thing just sounds organic and real.

I love this album - the guitar sounds much rawer, and the Money performance is phenomenal, I just love the improvised section.
And that Cream performance is great in my opinion . . .

IĀ´ve never heard the record, IĀ´ll have to admit, but I love the video. ItĀ´s full of energy and the boys seem to have a lot of fun.
I, too, think that the version of Money is great and IĀ´ve never understood why so many people dislike Dogs of War. That one comes out really strong live.
I belong to the minority that prefers AMLOR to TDB.
