The Pink Floyd catalog, back on vinyl, 180-gram pressing

Mastered by James Guthrie, Joel Plante and Bernie Grundman

Pink Floyd Records — along with Sony Music and Warner Music Group —is reintroducing the band's classic catalog on vinyl. Coming in August 2016, The Wall and The Division Bell. Pink Floyd Records is reproducing the vinyl catalog throughout the year with release dates at regular intervals.

Each of these two releases constitutes a double LP. Special care has been taken to replicate the original packaging.

One of the most acclaimed concept albums of all time, The Wall is renowned as Roger Waters' Rock Opera, dealing with abandonment and personal isolation. Featuring the unique artwork of Gerald Scarfe, the album also yielded the U.S. and U.K. No. 1 hit "Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2" and was subsequently adapted for cinema by Alan Parker featuring Bob Geldof in the lead role.

I was very disappointed listening to this for the first, and only time. I have a swedish pressing, that I love. number:7C 156-63 410 My old swedish pressing sound real and much punch. The helicopter comes right up to your face. This nev digital from analog master, sounds dull, and lazy. There is a lot of details in this new reissue,,,if you want to hear details,,by the cd.

I have to go back and change my review for the EMI version of this album - from 5 stars to 4 stars. While this one plays at about the same volume as the EMI record, the detail is far superior. It has great depth and much more slam. The drums hit with more authority and the guitars more screamness than the EMI version. In short, the EMI version now sounds dulled compared to this record.

Roger Waters has a way of singing that makes it hard to understand a lot of his words. Here, he sounds clearer than I've ever heard, and he sounds right there in front (centered, but a little above the plane of listening). It's possible that because I've listened to this album a great deal, that I simply hear more of the words. But I don't want to give that impression. Waters' voice is very sharply defined on this record. Same for the drums and guitar.

If this is representative of the other Pink Floyd reissues, then I will buy them all. This one is great.


Fantastic Remaster

Reviewer: Joey
Pink Floyd have been re-releasing their catalogue on their own record label, and the results have been magnificent!

I own a fairly flawless original Canadian pressing from 1979, and this master is definitely cut at a lower volume. I don't own the 2012 re-master, but have read unfavourable reviews. That said, the clarity of this new reissue beats my original. Nuances are noted now, mainly because my original pressing is "in your face," and muddled as a result (although, to be honest, I enjoy that kind of sound for this record).

Is it a worthwhile replacement? Absolutely. Particularly if you can't find a clean original pressing (nearly impossible, unless you want to pay big bucks.) I don't know if this is worth $50, but if you can find this for a deal, you will certainly NOT be disappointed. It sounds incredible! I'm looking forward to more releases in this chain.
