artto Posted September 21, 2022 Share Posted September 21, 2022 The short story........If you're a Pink Floyd fan - GET IT. If you're not a Pink Floyd fan, just another audio nut GET IT. Baring the subjective difference preferences between the original 1977 LP and the 2018, I think this is one of the absolutely best remix/remastering of an aging rock album I've ever heard. Personally, I find everything about it better. There's plenty of YouTube reviews out there already, and they all pretty much say the same things as my impressions. The original recording on LP or any of the subsequent reissues on LP, CD or Hi-Res streaming with or without MQA are notably inferior compared to this new release (IMHO). Everything is much better defined, clear, spacious. You will need a truly full range system to hear all the improvements. I always felt like turning the bass up on Animals, regardless of the media. Not here. Rick Wright's synths go DOWN DEEP, WAY DOWN. No need to turn the bass up. I bypassed all EQ/tone controls on my system. Now I wish Floyd would do the same to DSOTM, The Wall, Wish You Were Here, and Meddle. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
