The exceptional atmosphere of this acoustic concert reflects not only in the music but also the familiar setting; candles instead of a laser show, a string section instead of keyboard sounds, reduction instead of inflation. Floydian grandeur turns into intimate music experience, borne by creativity, wit, charm and respect for the makers who are Pink Floyd. This DVD, recorded at the sold out Stadttheater Aschaffenburg, impressively documents the memorable evening and manifests the music of Pink Floyd in a way that it has not been heard before.

As tribute albums (vol. 1 & vol. 2) go, Electronic Tribute to Pink Floyd is a pretty interesting proposition, featuring big-beat, drum'n'bass, trance, and techno takes on some of the pioneering space-rockers' best-known material. In practice, some of the ideas work and some don't; the most disappointing are the versions that don't match the musical skill of the originals, as on the awkwardly recited, barely sung lyrics of "The Wall" or Dynamichrome's take on "Money," which smooths the 7/4 time signature of the original into a straight four-count beat. But some of the new arrangements are effective, bringing out either the ethereal atmosphere or the latent heaviness in the group's music, and recontextualizing it in electronic form. Classic-rock purists have a notorious distaste for any music not centered around guitars, but in truth, there's some pretty decent music to be found here.
