If the end of the 80’s sounded the death knell for many sacred monsters at the top of their art a decade or even fifteen years ago, they were the synonym of a new birth for Pink Floyd. The band has already had two lives, one with and then without Syd Barrett. When in 1985, Roger Waters left the adventure, he tried at all costs to prevent his former Playmates from retaining the name of the formation for their future projects. After a long legal battle, Gilmour, Mason, and Wright won the right to continue using Pink Floyd’s surname. In 1987, A Momentary Lapse of Reason was released, the first album of the post-Waters era. This was followed by a pharaonic tour that gave birth to the live Delicate Sound of Thunder the following year. A one-of-a-kind album in the band’s history for several reasons. First because it is the first real official Floyd live (although Ummagumma released in 1969 included two records, a live and a studio). Then because it was a huge success at the time on two levels, thanks to its different audio and video formats, new proof that the group has long grasped the primordial role played by images to accompany its music (the film Live At Pompeii released sixteen years earlier is a perfect example). Finally because it is the first album to have been played in space thanks to Soviet cosmonauts having taken it with them aboard the Soyuz TM-7 shuttle towards the Space station Mir. Its remixed and especially completed reissue brings this live having made debate into a new era.
