Performance:   Sonics:
Good performance, gotta add a little on sonics though. It sounds very muddy and non dynamic not a good recording at all and SACD just seems to enhcance what's bad here. Sounds like you have a bit of cotton in your ears when you listen to it.

Performance:   Sonics:
"In The Flesh" brings you an overview of Roger Water's music with early Pink Floyd material, songs from "The Wall", "Dark Side Of The Moon","Animals", "Wish You Were Here", and "The Final Cut", but also songs from the RW solo albums "Amused To Death" and "The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking". It also contains a brand new song called "Each Small Candle."

Sonically this is a good live recording with big sound (love those bass and drum notes!). It gives you a true live concert feeling. For all of us PF and RW fans I think this will be a treasure, even though David Gilmore's quitar work is sorely missed (They needed a couple of quitarists to replace him and although Snowy White and Doyle Bramhall do an admirable job - sometimes more than that - it just ain't the same, isn't it? I missed the bite of Gilmore's guitar...)

Roger Waters has been complaining that during the heady PF days he lost the connection between himself and the audience. The liner notes go into more detail about this and it is quite an interesting read. The In The Flesh Tour was partly made to restore that connection. I think the strongest part of the album are the early PF songs, like 'Dogs', 'Welcome To The Machine', 'Pigs On The Wing', 'Time' and 'Breathe'.

Performance:   Sonics:    
It's a shame. MCH mix is completely absent - just stereo + shy sounds on center and backs. Overal sound quality isn't high, espesially for SACD.
