Product Description

Amazon.com

It's nothing short of remarkable that Roger Waters has built a successful career on obsessive ruminations on alienation, megalomania, and guilty fame, largely on the backs of one of history's most long-lived arena acts. The musical legacy Waters has shared with "another band" (as he sharply refers to his former Pink Floyd mates in this collection's self-penned liner notes) has served two distinctly different functions: part and parcel of the latter's nostalgia act; autobiographical foundation for the former's ongoing, if decidedly egocentric, Rage at the World. That's essentially the rationale this live collection uses to lean heavily on Waters's Pink prime, from Dark Side of the Moon through The Final Cut. And if that frame sometimes overshadows the images of Waters's solo work--well, no one said he wasn't a pragmatic entertainer. Still, his cynical eye insures the juxtapositions work well; the Falkland-conflicted Britain of The Final Cut's "Get Your Filthy Hands off My Desert" and "Southampton Dock" is neatly bookended by Amused to Death's "Bravery of Being out of Range." There's a telling musical contrast with Floyd here, too, and it's one that goes beyond the album's stellar recording techniques. Waters's ensemble breathes new life into even the coldest of the Floydian dirges, while giving the hoary psychedelic romp "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" a welcome R&B groove. Waters concludes by offering up the previously unrecorded "Each Small Candle"--and an equally unexpected ray of hope. --Jerry McCulley

These [the cd's] were compiled from a handful of shows: Phoenix, Arizona; Las Vegas, Nevada; Irvine, California; and Portland, Oregon (the Portland show will be released in its entirety in a special DVD in the spring), and James Guthrie (the man we can thank for The Wall Live) did a great job here in choosing the best performances from each of these shows to compile the ultimate representation of this past year's tour. The explosive opener, "In the Flesh," gets us right into it, beginning an all-too-short but oh-so-sweet string of songs from The Wall, which Roger has always considered his greatest work. Doyle Bramhall and Snowy White, the two lead guitarists on this tour, leave stinging solos on "Another Brick in the Wall Part 2," thus pumping new life into an old and often wearing radio staple. "Mother" is also simply amazing, with Doyle adding his own unique flavor to Gilmour's powerful solo, and Katie Kissoon and P.P. Arnold singing Gilmour's verses are another great tweak to this Floyd classic.
Then it's on to Roger's traditional live representation of probably the least-listened Floyd album, "The Final Cut." Although I was hoping for "The Gunner's Dream" or the title track, I figured Rog would revert to this little acoustic segue, just as he did on his '87 KAOS tour, and I suppose it fits better into the flow of the performance. This is a touching set of acoustic tracks that really speaks to the heart of Roger's traditional anti-war sentiments. They lead us nicely into Pigs On the Wing (I was hoping for a Snowy White electric solo bridging parts 1 and 2, but hey, you can't always get what you want).
Now for one of the major highlights of this set. "Dogs" is 16 plus minutes of absolute sonic brilliance.

Roger Waters' latest double live album, "In The Flesh," documents Waters' 1999-2000 North American tour, and serves as a fantastic memento. I had the great privilege of seeing Mr. Waters and his fleet of top-notch musicians four times over a period of two summers, and was looking forward to a live document from the tour. I was not disappointed.
"In The Flesh," engineered by James Guthrie, who was responsible for the recent live Wall album, "Is There Anybody Out There?" is an incredible sounding recording. As Guthrie describes it, it "breathes." It has considerable depth and warmness. The songs themselves are executed brilliantly. Notable tracks on the first disc include "Dogs," which receives a full, unabridged workout and great guitar interplay between Doyle Bramhall II and Floyd-vet Snowy White, and "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun," which is given a very trippy re-working and may be the gem of the album.
The second disc is devoted, in large part, to Waters' solo work, including a chunk from Waters' 1992 masterpiece, "Amused To Death." The album closes out with a strong new composition from Waters entitled "Each Small Candle," which Waters performed as an encore for all the shows on the 2000 leg of the tour and which is expected to surface on a forthcoming studio album from Waters.
It is expected that a companion DVD will soon follow.

I couldn't stand Roger Waters. I didn't like him with Pink Floyd and I definately didn't like him as a solo artist. I thought he was nothing more than a whining,moaning, groaning, complaining child. After Pink Floyd, I hated his lyrics. The Wall, in my opinion, exposed him as an angry, hateful individual that wanted to take out his frustrations on everyone else. But lo and behold! My friend across the street is a very big Pink Floyd fan. He gave me copies of Roger's The Wall Live In Berlin and In The Flesh. Since I was sitting up late one night and there was nothing on the TV, I popped in The Wall. I thoroughly enjoyed it and got a whole new opinion and attitude toward Mr. Waters. The next night I popped in In The Flesh. I was totally blown away by his performance and gained a lot of respect for him. The documentary at the end of The Wall DVD was excellent. It showed Roger as a very cool, calm and collected individual. His solo versions of Pink Floyd tunes on this album are out of this world. He does a very good job on everything he did both in The Wall and this album. I am truely impressed with the way, unlike other musicians, he shared the stage with other performers and musicians. He didn't appear to take the attitude that "this is my show and don't you forget it." He shared the spotlight with others which is not seen very much from other musicians. I would highly recommend this album to any Pink Floyd or Roger Waters fan. Check it out, you won't regret it. After seeing the DVD, I had to purchase this album and I do not regret it for a minute.

This, Roger Waters' first album release in 8 years is a must own for any fans of his music or of classic Pink Floyd material. To be honest, I am a huge David Gilmour fan and was prepared to be disappointed with the guitar work on this album. I needn't have been. The triple guitar attack of Doyle Bramhall II, Snowy White, and Andy Fairweather-Low (augmented by Jon Carin and Roger himself) is a very potent axe outfit. Thus, not only is the solo work great as expected, but (unlike The Wall In Berlin) the Pink Floyd material actually sounds like Pink Floyd. As I mentioned the guitarists are competent, Jon Carin and Andy Wallace easily handle the keyboard parts, the backing vocalists are great, and Graham Broad is perhaps a better drummer than Nick Mason. Also, Roger himself is playing great and obviously enjoying performing for the first time in perhaps 25 years. His vocals may be occasionally rough around the edges, but as always he phrases them so that they come off as emotive and meaningful. The backing vocalists are also excellent, and it's hard not to be moved by PP Arnold's vocal break during Perfect Sense.
If you are wondering who plays what I will attempt to clarify that for you. The lead guitar work is handled mostly by Bramhall, who, despite his traditional blues stance, fills in ably for not only Gilmour but also Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton (on the solo material), and occasionally by Snowy White (Shine On, etc.). Andy Fairweather-Low is relegated to the role of rhythm guitarist for most of the songs, with occasional exception, such as his solo on Money. Roger plays bass or electric/acoustic guitars on many of the songs, as well as taking the lead on the Bravery of Being Out of Range. Jon Carin plays acoustic guitar on Dogs and slide on Shine On.
