Pink Floyd

    This was my 5th Pink Floyd 2016 Reissue/Remaster vinyl AlbumI had bought because the other four were absolutely perfect. "The Wall" was exceptional as well. The sound is absolutely incredible and packaging was exactly as it was in 1979 and if I dare say so, even better quality. I've never been disappointed with these reissues so you can bet that I will buy another one! My next will be "Meddle." Highly recommended!

    2016 Reissue/Remaster-Pink Floyd The Wall(vinyl)

    Pink Floyd's eleventh studio album The Wall was released in December of 1979 and is a classic and regarded as the band's most ambitious masterwork.
    This double album ranks up there with other noted classic rock double studio albums like The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, Tommy, Exile on Main Street, Quadrophenia, Blonde on Blonde, London Calling, The White Album, Physical Graffiti, Electric Ladyland and many others.
    The concept for The Wall still holds up over 30 years after its initial release.
    The idea came to bass player/singer Roger Waters whom was upset with himself after spitting on a fan on the last gig of the Animals tour at Montreal's Olympic Stadium.
    In 1978, Roger was writing and recording demos that would become The Wall (many to appear on the Immersion Version in 2012). Meanwhile, drummer Nick Mason was off producing other acts (ranging from punk rockers The Damned to prog rocker Steve Hillage) whilst the other two principle Pink Floyd songwriters whom were guitarist/singer David Gilmour and keyboard player Rick Wright were recording their first solo albums in France which both came out in 1978.
    In late 1978 the band, along with KISS/Alice Cooper/Peter Gabriel/Lou Reed producer Bob Ezrin, began demoing the songs for The Wall at Britannia Row Studios in London (these too are to appear on the Immersion Version in 2012).
    The band properly began recording The Wall in April of 1979 in two studios in France (and later at studios in Los Angeles and New York) with Waters, Gilmour, Ezrin and engineer James Guthrie producing to avoid the crazy English tax laws as the band was almost bankrupt due to their agents stealing the money in a way that they still owed the British tax companies taxes.
    All of the songs, save four, were written by Roger. The album's three best tracks "Young Lust", "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell" were co-written by Gilmour. Then, "The Trial" was co-written by Ezrin.
    The Wall was a concept album which told the story of a character named Pink (a composite of Roger Waters and Floyd co-founder Syd Barrett).
    After we begin with the bombast rock of "In the Flesh?", The Wall story begins when Pink goes through a traumatic childhood of losing his father in war ("The Thin Ice" and "Another Brick in the Wall (pt.1)"), cruel sarcastic teachers ("The Happiest Days of Our Lives", the chart-topping single "Another Brick in the Wall (pt.2)"), an overbearing mother ("Mother"), problems with adolescence ("Goodbye Blue Sky") problems with success ("Empty Spaces"), relationship troubles ("Young Lust" (wife leaves him), "One of My Turns" (snapping when the groupie comes in room and many other problems (like the wife beating in "Don't Leave Me Now") one goes through before walling himself off from the rest of the world ("Another Brick in the Wall (pt. 3)" and "Goodbye Cruel World").
    The second disc starts with Pink walled off from society (starting with the classic "Hey You" and "Is There Anybody Out There?") then ponders his life in a hotel room ("Nobody Home") and thinks back to his father's death ("Vera" and "Bring the Boys Back Home"). The highlight of the album is "Comfortably Numb" which tells the tale of Pink being confronted by a doctor to take something before he could go on with the show. The song was first intended for David Gilmour's 1978 solo debut but was thankfully left off and saved for The Wall. The track is a classic and is always in the Top 10 greatest rock song/guitar solo polls! The track "The Show Must Go On" is Pink being led to the show and then as a fascist dictator Pink is performing like a madman as depicted in "In the Flesh", "Run Like Hell" and "Waiting For the Worms" before having his own trial ("Stop" and "The Trial") and is ordered to knock down his wall to start life fresh ("Outside the Wall").
    Band turmoil during 1979 reached an all-time high and Roger eventually kicked Rick Wright out of the band citing Rick wasn't doing squat when in fact Roger was setting Rick up to fail from the word go. Rick was let go but stayed to finish the album and did The Wall shows in 1980/81 as a paid musician (the other three members lost money from staging the shows). Rick played on most of the album (even co-producer James Guthrie stated Rick played on more of The Wall than given credit) as does Nick whom is not on drums for half the record (Jeff Porcaro played drums on Mother, Jeff's father Joe played snare drum on Bring the Boys Back Home and there's no drums on some of the tracks).
    Despite the band turmoil, The Wall became Pink Floyd's third US chart-topping album (stayed at #1 for 15 weeks), sold over 25 million in the US alone (second highest selling album of original material of all time here in the US and best selling double album ever though some configurations were on one cassette and one heavily edited 8-track cartridge), spawned the greatest rock concerts ever produced (documented on Is There Anybody Out There and many boots available) and a classic film.
    As part of the 2011 Why Pink Floyd? campaign, the band re-release this masterwork with a remastered CD painstakingly done by James Guthrie (one of the original co-producers of the album and the engineer of the album) and Joel Plante. Out of the CD issues I have owned of this album, this is probably my favorite version (sure beats the lifeless EMI Europe remasters from 1994) apart from the original vinyl record. Also the booklet is excellent and does a great job replicating the original vinyl LP art apart from the change in color text of front cover writing.
    As of 2016, the album has been re-released on Pink Floyd Records (distributed by Sony Music) with different artwork on the CD compared to the Discovery edition from 2011 and 36 plus years on is still the best album of the 1976-83 phase of Pink Floyd (the Roger Waters power trip).
    The Wall is still a classic today and is highly recommended!

    Pink Floyd's magnum opus gets a re-press fitting for a king! Pink Floyd's magnum opus gets a re-press fitting for a king! Pink Floyd's magnum opus gets a re-press fitting for a king!

    Grew up listening to Pink Floyd, so of course I had to have this. Definitely worth the money.

    Everything I want and more

    This is a freaking masterpiece.

    Absolutely incredible. Absolutely incredible.

    Considering somehow my original digital purchase of much of this album has vanished from my library after the innovation of the "cloud", I decided to finally buy another copy of the whole thing. IT would be NICE if the damned thing would load correctly. Meaning that the differentiation between album one and album two does not translate into mp3 players or media players, so the albums are overlaid with the SECOND albums tracks playing first, track 1 from album 2, then track 1 from album 1, then track 2 from album 2, and so on. So I have to go in and renumber the tracks, potentially messing up their metadata.

    Thanks, as usual, for delivering half-good products and service.

    Be nice if digital song order wasn't a mess.

    Like fast shipping. Dislike lack of acoustic dynamics there have been many printings of this album. It’s not exactly the same but maybe it’s my CD player. That’s right. I just blamed it on the equipment.

    Pink Floyd the wall cd review

    Let me start by saying that this review reflects more the products description and Amazon's handling of this product. The music is awesome and timeless and I will include a section reviewing the actual product that I received below.

    Ok, so as some other reviewers have pointed out, there seems to be some kind of mess up on Amazon's side and the "Product Description" section of the items page despite the version that you are actually looking at for purchase is for The Wall - Immersion Box Set. This is a box set with all kinds of little goodies in it, the regular studio recording (remastered), a live recording, demo recordings, a DVD and just all kinds of fun stuff (currently $107.88 on Amazon). I, however was looking to buy The Wall on vinyl and was under the impression from the description that I would be getting all of this great stuff, but in a vinyl format instead of on CD. Simply opening the Amazon box proved me wrong. What I received is exactly what is in the picture that I posted. 2 records and a code to download the mp3's. This is still nice and great, but not what I was expecting.

    Once I saw this, I looked into it and found that ALL of The Wall items have the same description which really only describes ONE item. Also, any review left for one item shows on all of the item pages. I would not be surprised if someone reading this is looking at the regular CD, another at the vinyl and maybe even another considering buying a cassette tape. So, as FAIR WARNING, look look look and make sure that you are buying what you think you are buying.

    Now, to review the actual item that I received. Mmmmmm Nice! 180 gram vinyl of a classic. It looks, feels and sounds amazing. The only thing even slightly disappointing is that the album cover is just "the wall" bricks and the text "Pink Floyd The Wall" is a sticker stuck to the front. It looks a little cheesy and you can even see the brick lines through the thin sticker. It was a pretty lame choice by the manufacturer, but whatever.
    After removing it from the plastic, there is a sticker that falls off of the back. This sticker accurately describes exactly what is included in the package. I am really not sure why it is a sticker, but I am glad that it was not stuck to the back of the album cover.
    Opening the package reveals a large poster with The Wall bricks and the lyrics to every song between the folds of the cover. Very nice. :)
    Each album is in it's own plastic bag, but also has a thin cardboard slip cover with the lyrics to each side of each disk, very similar to the poster.
    Finally, there is another small piece of paper that includes a code for downloading the high quality mp3's.

    This is probably the eighth copy of The Wall that I have bought over my life, but the first vinyl copy. Over all, I would say that it was $50 well spent.

    Pink Floyd's The Wall double-album is not just a collection of pop and rock songs. It is a sonic saga meant to be auditioned, not just played, from beginning to end. The songs are organized with varying tempos and styles and lyrics in such a way that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. In between the sequences are a very creative use of spoken words and sound effects. The small handful of singles are meaningless by themselves other than for marketing and promotional purposes. Some of the songs are truly unforgettable like "Vera" and the David Gilmore's amazing guitar-solo in "Comfortably Numb" will leave you awestruck. This is a must-

    An Epic Listening Journey like NO OTHER!

    I received the order and there was 3 damaged vinyl.
    The box wasn't damaged.
    I am your regular customer and was unplesant surprised.

For one, they are packaged like they were when they originally came out and two, to get a fresher perspective with the remastering. I'm so glad I did. Like the original, it came with the original notes, posters and stickers along with an extra wax sleeve to protect your vinyl while leaving the other in tact for collectibility. The sound didn't disappoint either, incredible, rich sound that to me, is perfectly balanced. I previously received the LP, "Wish You Were Here," and it too, gave me the same satisfaction. Whether you're a new or old fan, I promise these remasters are worth it and at a great price.

    2016 Pink Floyd

    PINK FLOYD/ THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON: first impression is that the cd case is a junky, recyclable cardboard sleeve; I paid $18.11 for this cd, not fifty cents; it puts a bad taste in my mouth before I even start to listen to the cd
    The music is pretty uneventful; there is nothing spectacular about this cd in comparison to the cassette I had of this same album when I was a teenager.
    Peaceful, calm, somewhat soothing music; nice to listen to before going to bed
    Overall, a good cd but it is not worth the $18.11 I paid for it. This would have rated better however it is a total rip off.

    Not worth the money Not worth the money Not worth the money Not worth the money

    (This review refers to the LP Record version)
    (I really wish I could have just posted this on the page for the [[ASIN:B00008AWNY Dark Side of the Moon LP Record]] instead)

    That's right, no further nastiness about how bad the CD layer is on the 30th anniversary re-release. No debate over the goofy stained glass cover which isn't actually on this version. I'm not even going to explain how many copies this album has sold and why (like every other reviewer on Amazon). This is The Dark Side of the Moon as you should have been hearing it all along.

    The actual record is pressed on "heavyweight virgin vinyl," which I assume means vinyl that hasn't been recycled previously. Even on my hundred dollar [[ASIN:B00005T3XH Sony PSLX250H Turntable]], Dark Side of the Moon played at a very consistent, steady 33 1/3 RPM and with very little noise. Nick Mason's cymbals come through high and clear as if he's playing in the same room, and Roger Waters' bass is equally clear on the other end of the spectrum. Right in the middle are Richard Wright's keyboards and David Gilmour's vocals and guitar, which are undistorted and quite sweet. From the 96/24 digital backup I made with my [[ASIN:B0002ZH6QY Creative Labs SoundBlaster Audigy 2 Platinum 6.1-Channel Sound Card]], it appears this vinyl version has an even better dynamic range than the stereo SACD.

    As for the package, have they missed ANYTHING? I mean the original cover art is reproduced down to the gatefold and all the original posters, they've included two additional posters, though one was miniature and slid under the shrink wrap in front of the prism and just says what's in the package with another pyramid photo. The only unfortunate thing is NONE are going to end up on any of my walls!

    I give this release an overall resounding five stars, as nothing has been retouched, simulated, digitized, or omitted from what I can tell. Well ok, if they wanted us to all die happy they would have re-released the quad version as a companion, but... naaah. I'm happy.

    I've been VINYL for freaking years....

    Damaged album cover, thankfully not the record itself. The only reason I won't be sending it back is because I really, really want to listen to this album.

    Damage to product

    Well. The LP arrived in due time, very reasonable price (product + mail), very nice moments with friends, listening again all those sounds. Great, thanks!

    With a little help from our friends

    Cassette arrived without the tape! It’s just a shell. Beware. I think this is a scam.

    Empty shell - could be a scam

    Received this set today but it seems kind of sketchy. Everything, including the box it came in, is labled as the property of a library.

Record it in software like AUDACITY; save it in highest resolution FLAC format! Put the album away for posterity and LISTEN to the rip! Cheers! :D

    Rip Your Album In FLAC Format!  Then, put the ALBUM away for safekeeping!!!  :D

    One of the great albums of all time. Time being relative as well in the case of this music it's a part of a mathematical equation of goodness. Something unique and evolving with you. A good listen is an Vinlyl which is how it was meant to be heard.

Pink Floyd

    Pink Floyd's ninth studio album entitled Wish You Were Here was released in September of 1975.
    I first received this album on cassette tape (Columbia/CBS JCT 33453) for my ninth birthday on January 24, 1985 from my parents accidentally instead of the compilation A Collection of Great Dance Songs but I thank both of them (especially my mom, may she rest in peace) that they did as today (over 26 years after I first acquired the album on cassette and many copies later, including the remastered CD), it is my all time favorite Pink Floyd album (I apologize to those who like Dark Side, Animals and The Wall more than this), it's also the favorite of Pink Floyd's singer and guitarist David Gilmour and the late co-founder/keyboard player/occasional singer Rick Wright (who passed away in September of 2008).
    The Wish You Were Here album was the band's first for their new deal with Columbia/CBS for most of the world save Europe where they remained with Harvest/EMI.
    The sessions for Wish You Were Here took place between January and July of 1975 at Abbey Road Studios in London with the band once again producing and engineer Brian Humphries engineering.
    The lyrics were once again penned by bass player/singer Roger Waters whom came up with the theme of absence in response to the overwhelming success of their predecessor, 1973's 40 million copies worldwide plus selling The Dark Side of the Moon. It also dealt with the greed of the entertainment business.
    Wish You Were Here only technically contained four tracks as one of the tracks was split in half, but it is nothing but 44 and a half minutes of sonic bliss.
    Wish You Were Here kicks off with "Shine On You Crazy Diamond (parts 1-5)". The music is just amazing and was written by Rick, David and Roger. Rick's synthesizer work on part 1 was very atmospheric before David plays a beautiful sad bluesy guitar solo. Then the four note motif from David's guitar signals Part 2 and Rick's stellar Hammond organ work, Roger's great bass playing and drummer Nick Mason's drumming to come in and play. David is at his bluesiest as far as guitar solos go on part 2. Part 3 has a beautiful Wright synthesizer solo and classic Gilmour solo before segueing into Part 4 at the 8:45 mark. Part 4 is where Roger's lead vocal comes in and he sings the band's epic tribute to fallen Floyd comrade Syd Barrett. Dick Parry's baritone and tenor sax solos on Part 5 end this half of the track which segues into superb machine noises created by the VCS3 to go into the next song. The song "Welcome to the Machine" was the first of two attacks on the record industry with Wright and Waters' synthesizers, David's multi-tracked vocals and acoustic guitars and drummer Nick Mason's tympani flourishes playing flawlessly before ending with superb sound effects thanks to the VCS3 and people laughing.
    The second half of the Wish You Were Here album starts with the rocker "Have a Cigar", another biting commentary on the record business. The track featured the band's Harvest/EMI labelmate Roy Harper on lead vocals (and he did a stellar job). The song was released as a single in the US but didn't chart but a classic nevertheless. Gilmour's ending distorted guitar solo disappears into radio sounds which were recorded in David's car and segues into the album's title track. The title cut was spawned from a riff David had played at Abbey Road and Roger liked it so much that the two sat down and wrote the second best loved Floyd track in the band's repertoire. The lyrics reflect on Syd and wishing he was still together mentally. The coughing fit in the beginning was David's then-smoking habits. He thankfully quit smoking immediately for good after the initial playback during mixing at Abbey Road in 1975 because he was embarrased about the cough but was left in there as a sort of reminder. The wind swirls at the end leads into "Shine On You Crazy Diamond (parts 6-9)". Part 6 of the epic nine-part track is dominated by David's superb guitar work on both the Stratocaster and lap steel and Rick's Solina String and Mini-Moog synthesizer flourishes. We then segue into Part 7 from the guitar solo of Part 4. Roger sings part 7 very passionately. Parts 8 and 9 to Shine On You Crazy Diamond is one of the most powerful pieces of music I ever heard with the former a funky exercise and the latter is one of Wright's best pieces of music.
    When mixing Shine On You Crazy Diamond (which was also the day David married his first wife Ginger), Syd mysteriously showed up at Abbey Road with a shaved bald head and very plump. The band hadn't seen him since 1970 and wouldn't see him again (Syd sadly passed away in 2006).
    When Wish You Were here was released, the album rightfully hit #1 in the band's native UK in its first week and topped the charts here in the US with a bullet in its second week and has sold over 7 million copies to date here in the US (13 million worldwide).
    Sales notwithstanding, this is Pink Floyd at its best musically, lyrically and cohesive as a unit despite the fact the feud in the band was starting to brew and the album still sounds great over 35 years later.
    Now in 2016, this classic album is re-released with the 2011 remaster this time on Pink Floyd's own record label Pink Floyd Records (distributed by Sony Music). The remastering on this is incredible. What James Guthrie and Joel Plante did with this album is excellent. I've owned the 1992 remaster (which was used for the 1994 UK remaster and the 1990s Sony Gold disc), the 1997 and 2000 remaster (which are identical) and the sound is like night and day. This easily is the best sounding Wish You Were Here since the first vinyl issue (which I'm proud to own). The booklet is rather nice as well. The packaging on this trumps the Discovery Edition from 2011 with the CD looking like the original vinyl LP and also the booklet having updated credits and the sticker recreates the original sticker on the LP!
    Highly recommended!

    2016 Reissue/Remaster-Pink Floyd The Wall(vinyl)

    Pink Floyd's eleventh studio album The Wall was released in December of 1979 and is a classic and regarded as the band's most ambitious masterwork.
    This double album ranks up there with other noted classic rock double studio albums like The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, Tommy, Exile on Main Street, Quadrophenia, Blonde on Blonde, London Calling, The White Album, Physical Graffiti, Electric Ladyland and many others.
    The concept for The Wall still holds up over 30 years after its initial release.
    The idea came to bass player/singer Roger Waters whom was upset with himself after spitting on a fan on the last gig of the Animals tour at Montreal's Olympic Stadium.
    In 1978, Roger was writing and recording demos that would become The Wall (many to appear on the Immersion Version in 2012). Meanwhile, drummer Nick Mason was off producing other acts (ranging from punk rockers The Damned to prog rocker Steve Hillage) whilst the other two principle Pink Floyd songwriters whom were guitarist/singer David Gilmour and keyboard player Rick Wright were recording their first solo albums in France which both came out in 1978.
    In late 1978 the band, along with KISS/Alice Cooper/Peter Gabriel/Lou Reed producer Bob Ezrin, began demoing the songs for The Wall at Britannia Row Studios in London (these too are to appear on the Immersion Version in 2012).
    The band properly began recording The Wall in April of 1979 in two studios in France (and later at studios in Los Angeles and New York) with Waters, Gilmour, Ezrin and engineer James Guthrie producing to avoid the crazy English tax laws as the band was almost bankrupt due to their agents stealing the money in a way that they still owed the British tax companies taxes.
    All of the songs, save four, were written by Roger. The album's three best tracks "Young Lust", "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell" were co-written by Gilmour. Then, "The Trial" was co-written by Ezrin.
    The Wall was a concept album which told the story of a character named Pink (a composite of Roger Waters and Floyd co-founder Syd Barrett).
    After we begin with the bombast rock of "In the Flesh?", The Wall story begins when Pink goes through a traumatic childhood of losing his father in war ("The Thin Ice" and "Another Brick in the Wall (pt.1)"), cruel sarcastic teachers ("The Happiest Days of Our Lives", the chart-topping single "Another Brick in the Wall (pt.2)"), an overbearing mother ("Mother"), problems with adolescence ("Goodbye Blue Sky") problems with success ("Empty Spaces"), relationship troubles ("Young Lust" (wife leaves him), "One of My Turns" (snapping when the groupie comes in room and many other problems (like the wife beating in "Don't Leave Me Now") one goes through before walling himself off from the rest of the world ("Another Brick in the Wall (pt. 3)" and "Goodbye Cruel World").
    The second disc starts with Pink walled off from society (starting with the classic "Hey You" and "Is There Anybody Out There?") then ponders his life in a hotel room ("Nobody Home") and thinks back to his father's death ("Vera" and "Bring the Boys Back Home"). The highlight of the album is "Comfortably Numb" which tells the tale of Pink being confronted by a doctor to take something before he could go on with the show. The song was first intended for David Gilmour's 1978 solo debut but was thankfully left off and saved for The Wall. The track is a classic and is always in the Top 10 greatest rock song/guitar solo polls! The track "The Show Must Go On" is Pink being led to the show and then as a fascist dictator Pink is performing like a madman as depicted in "In the Flesh", "Run Like Hell" and "Waiting For the Worms" before having his own trial ("Stop" and "The Trial") and is ordered to knock down his wall to start life fresh ("Outside the Wall").
    Band turmoil during 1979 reached an all-time high and Roger eventually kicked Rick Wright out of the band citing Rick wasn't doing squat when in fact Roger was setting Rick up to fail from the word go. Rick was let go but stayed to finish the album and did The Wall shows in 1980/81 as a paid musician (the other three members lost money from staging the shows). Rick played on most of the album (even co-producer James Guthrie stated Rick played on more of The Wall than given credit) as does Nick whom is not on drums for half the record (Jeff Porcaro played drums on Mother, Jeff's father Joe played snare drum on Bring the Boys Back Home and there's no drums on some of the tracks).
    Despite the band turmoil, The Wall became Pink Floyd's third US chart-topping album (stayed at #1 for 15 weeks), sold over 25 million in the US alone (second highest selling album of original material of all time here in the US and best selling double album ever though some configurations were on one cassette and one heavily edited 8-track cartridge), spawned the greatest rock concerts ever produced (documented on Is There Anybody Out There and many boots available) and a classic film.
    As part of the 2011 Why Pink Floyd? campaign, the band re-release this masterwork with a remastered CD painstakingly done by James Guthrie (one of the original co-producers of the album and the engineer of the album) and Joel Plante. Out of the CD issues I have owned of this album, this is probably my favorite version (sure beats the lifeless EMI Europe remasters from 1994) apart from the original vinyl record. Also the booklet is excellent and does a great job replicating the original vinyl LP art apart from the change in color text of front cover writing.
    As of 2016, the album has been re-released on Pink Floyd Records (distributed by Sony Music) with different artwork on the CD compared to the Discovery edition from 2011 and 36 plus years on is still the best album of the 1976-83 phase of Pink Floyd (the Roger Waters power trip).
    The Wall is still a classic today and is highly recommended!

    Grew up listening to Pink Floyd, so of course I had to have this. Definitely worth the money.

    Everything I want and more

    This is a freaking masterpiece.

    Absolutely incredible. Absolutely incredible.

    Considering somehow my original digital purchase of much of this album has vanished from my library after the innovation of the "cloud", I decided to finally buy another copy of the whole thing. IT would be NICE if the damned thing would load correctly. Meaning that the differentiation between album one and album two does not translate into mp3 players or media players, so the albums are overlaid with the SECOND albums tracks playing first, track 1 from album 2, then track 1 from album 1, then track 2 from album 2, and so on. So I have to go in and renumber the tracks, potentially messing up their metadata.

    Thanks, as usual, for delivering half-good products and service.

    Be nice if digital song order wasn't a mess.

    Like fast shipping. Dislike lack of acoustic dynamics there have been many printings of this album. It’s not exactly the same but maybe it’s my CD player. That’s right. I just blamed it on the equipment.

    Pink Floyd the wall cd review

    Let me start by saying that this review reflects more the products description and Amazon's handling of this product. The music is awesome and timeless and I will include a section reviewing the actual product that I received below.

    Ok, so as some other reviewers have pointed out, there seems to be some kind of mess up on Amazon's side and the "Product Description" section of the items page despite the version that you are actually looking at for purchase is for The Wall - Immersion Box Set. This is a box set with all kinds of little goodies in it, the regular studio recording (remastered), a live recording, demo recordings, a DVD and just all kinds of fun stuff (currently $107.88 on Amazon). I, however was looking to buy The Wall on vinyl and was under the impression from the description that I would be getting all of this great stuff, but in a vinyl format instead of on CD. Simply opening the Amazon box proved me wrong. What I received is exactly what is in the picture that I posted. 2 records and a code to download the mp3's. This is still nice and great, but not what I was expecting.

    Once I saw this, I looked into it and found that ALL of The Wall items have the same description which really only describes ONE item. Also, any review left for one item shows on all of the item pages. I would not be surprised if someone reading this is looking at the regular CD, another at the vinyl and maybe even another considering buying a cassette tape. So, as FAIR WARNING, look look look and make sure that you are buying what you think you are buying.

    Now, to review the actual item that I received. Mmmmmm Nice! 180 gram vinyl of a classic. It looks, feels and sounds amazing. The only thing even slightly disappointing is that the album cover is just "the wall" bricks and the text "Pink Floyd The Wall" is a sticker stuck to the front. It looks a little cheesy and you can even see the brick lines through the thin sticker. It was a pretty lame choice by the manufacturer, but whatever.
    After removing it from the plastic, there is a sticker that falls off of the back. This sticker accurately describes exactly what is included in the package. I am really not sure why it is a sticker, but I am glad that it was not stuck to the back of the album cover.
    Opening the package reveals a large poster with The Wall bricks and the lyrics to every song between the folds of the cover. Very nice. :)
    Each album is in it's own plastic bag, but also has a thin cardboard slip cover with the lyrics to each side of each disk, very similar to the poster.
    Finally, there is another small piece of paper that includes a code for downloading the high quality mp3's.

    This is probably the eighth copy of The Wall that I have bought over my life, but the first vinyl copy. Over all, I would say that it was $50 well spent.

    Pink Floyd's The Wall double-album is not just a collection of pop and rock songs. It is a sonic saga meant to be auditioned, not just played, from beginning to end. The songs are organized with varying tempos and styles and lyrics in such a way that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. In between the sequences are a very creative use of spoken words and sound effects. The small handful of singles are meaningless by themselves other than for marketing and promotional purposes. Some of the songs are truly unforgettable like "Vera" and the David Gilmore's amazing guitar-solo in "Comfortably Numb" will leave you awestruck. This is a must-

    An Epic Listening Journey like NO OTHER!

    I was glad to finally receive me first copy of "Animals." Packaged like the original and has a phenomenal sound quality. Although only five songs on this particular LP, all are long playing up to 45 minutes plus, each standing on their own. Great songs, especially "Dogs." I've always thought this record was underrated, but people are starting to see that. The reissue/remaster is as just as good as the others I've received-spectacular!

    Pink Floyd Pink Floyd Pink Floyd Pink Floyd

    Pink Floyd's Animals album was released in February of 1977 here in the US and the previous month in Europe (as they were on EMI Europe and Columbia/CBS for the rest of the world).
    I first got this album on cassette in February of 1985 (when I was 9 and had Pigs (Three Different Ones) cut in half but on CD the track is uncut) and I have had the remastered CDs, LP and cassette and 8-track.
    The Animals album was coming hot off of the heels of two chart-topping studio classics, 1973's Dark Side of the Moon and 1975's Wish You Were Here.
    The sessions for Animals took place between April and December of 1976 at the band's own studio Britannia Row Studios in London and like the last few albums was produced by the band members themselves.
    If tensions were bad during Wish You Were Here, they got worse during Animals.
    This was the first album where bass player/singer Roger Waters wrote practically every tune on the album and vetoed anything keyboard player Rick Wright came up with and restricted guitarist/singer/songwriter David Gilmour's contributions to one track, the classic "Dogs".
    The album kicks off with "Pigs on the Wing (pt. 1)" which was a love song to Roger's then-wife Carolyne. Part two of Pigs on the Wing ends the album. Next, was the aforementioned 17 minute epic "Dogs". This song was originally called "You Gotta Be Crazy" but the lyrics were changed to tell the tale of the Donald Trump tycoon types whom are power-hungry people whom kick, bite and claw their way to the top and then eventually grow old and die of cancer caused by the weight of their self-importance.
    The album's second half kicks off with the 11 and a half minute epic "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" which talks about bigoted political leaders. The last verse, "hey you Whitehouse" was misconstrued as an attack on President Ford but is about the late moral majority leader Mary Whitehouse. That track had great guitar work from David (whose guitar dominates throughout the album as a contrast to synthesizers, saxophones and choral sounding backing vocals that dominated DSotM and WYWH). The track "Sheep", originally called "Raving and Drooling", is the final epic on the album and is about the weak-minded people who follow what the dogs and pigs say before finally rebelling at song's end parodying one of the psalms in the bible. We end with "Pigs On the Wing (pt. 2)" which is a reprise of part 1 with different lyrics.
    When Animals was initially released, the album was seen as a critical and commercial disappointment compared to its two predecessors due to the three awkwardly long songs on this album. Animals quickly went Platinum (eventually 4 million in US sales, should be 5 million by now) and shot to #3 but quickly fell from view because the songs were too long, big deal!
    With this 2011 remaster painstakingly done by James Guthrie and Joel Plante (it rivals the 1992 mastering that Doug Sax did for the Shine On box set), Animals today sounds fresh and competent unlike most albums that came out in 1977. The album was just re-released on Pink Floyd's own label called Pink Floyd Records and now has some changes to the artwork (now it has the gatefold pictures in the CD for the first time in years) and also the disc has the Side 1 photo of the dog in field and is superior to the shoddy Discovery CD art and pictures on the Discovery edition.
    The tour to support this album was not a memorable tour for the band. Whilst the rest of the band got used to larger crowds and stadiums, Waters' persona changed from a happy person into a mean, embittered sourpuss (which he is slowly dwindling away from today). On the final night of the Animals tour, Waters admitted to spitting on a fan which would give birth to The Wall (review soon).
    Animals is highly recommended!

    I ordered the Album Animals by Pink Floyd, as the description says, but I received piper at the gates of dawn. I’m fond of the album, so instead of returning it i will add it to the collection. I’m still pretty disappointed by this, and im sure most others would return the product.

    I received the wrong album!!

    Despite (or perhaps because of) a musical landscape utterly blown open by the sheer violence and life-by-the-throat nature of Punk – good old misery guts Roger Waters of Rock Dinosaurs PINK FLOYD didn't seem to notice nor give a rat’s ass.

    Recorded in 1976 and then released into a poisonous British landscape in January 1977 on Harvest SHVL 815 – even its dower Battersea Power Station 'industrial monolith' artwork seemed as grime-grubby as the portentous contents within where our cheery chappies blathered on about Orwellian things like Pigs and Sheep and the occasional Dog to the backdrop of an immaculately recorded guitar. It's coming from the sky – we're all going to die – nice. But none of that stops me from admiring the 2011 James Guthrie and Joel Plante Remaster on this more acidic of Floyd albums – relaunched January 2016 on Pink Floyd Records – the lads now just as corporate as the machine they so raged against nearly 40 years ago.

    "Animals" remastered on CD is a huge improvement over the LP original – an album that sported a hard card inner sleeve itself inside a gatefold cover and has for years been notoriously difficult to get a good vinyl pressing of. This CD is 'massive' – and for all the right reasons – beautiful clarity that's made me reassess my loathing of both it and the 'the system is killing the kids' knob that followed – 1979's double "The Wall". Here are the newly floated Piggies...

    UK re-released 8 January 2016 – "Animals" by PINK FLOYD on Pink Floyd Records PFR10 (Barcode 5099902895123) is a straightforward 5-track reissue CD using the Remaster from 2011. It's once again housed in a gatefold card digipak, has a stickered sleeve (on the outer shrinkwrap) and 12-page colour booklet (41:44 minutes).

    The original version of this Remaster was released 26 September 2011 as a 'Discovery Edition' single CD on EMI/Harvest 50999 028951 2 3 (Barcode 5099902895123) – this 2016 version on Pink Floyd Records uses that 2011 remaster and the same artwork. The 'Discovery Edition' sticker is gone as is the horrible 'green Ds' reinvented CD artwork that came with the 2011 issue – that's thankfully been replaced on the CD with the Side 1 'Dog' label artwork of the original LP. The 'Sheep and Pig' label of Side 2 is nowhere to be seen.

    1. Pigs On The Wing 1 (1:26 minutes)
    2. Dogs (17:05 minutes)
    3. Pigs (Three Different Ones) (11:26 minutes) – Side 2
    4. Sheep (10:20 minutes)
    5. Pigs On The Wing 2 (1:29 minutes)

    PINK FLOYD was:
    ROGER WATERS – Bass, Guitar and Lead Vocals
    DAVID GILMOUR – Lead Guitar and Vocals
    RICHARD WRIGHT – Keyboards
    NICK MASON – Drums

    Mastered by JAMES GUTHRIE and JOEL PLANTE at Das Boot Recording Studios in Tahoe in California in 2011 - the original 1st generation master tapes have been given a thorough going over (Guthrie is a Sound Engineer associated with the band since 1978). In fact - each song feels like these experts have spent a staggering amount of time worrying over every single nuance - because the audio result is truly impressive. That remaster has been reused for the January 2016 reissues.

    Essentially three long pieces of music (17, 11 and 10 minutes) bookended by the short one-and-half minute acoustic strums of "Pigs On The Wing" Part 1 and 2 – the Audio improvement is immediate on hearing the opening. This is a beautiful remaster and when we enter the Waters/Gilmour written "Dogs" and its various Guitar-Solo parts – you're clobbered with the Production values Floyd and Engineer BRIAN HUMPHRIES brought to the original 1976 recordings (done at Britannia Row Studios in London). When Waters sings the verse beginning with "...and after a while you can work on points for style..." – the band kicks in, as does Gilmour's fabulous axework that makes the whole seventeen minutes so edgy. You can hear this version. The lyrics are incredibly bleak – old men dying of cancer – people born in a house full of pain – souls trying to shake of the creeping malaise. And when those dogs do start barking and Richard Wright gets a chance to make his keyboard presence felt – the effect is brilliant – ably supporting Gilmour as he rips into his Strat for the first of many solos.

    Side 2 opens with treated piggy grunts and very clear Bass and Keyboard parts before Gilmour flicks that guitar on "Pigs (Three Different Ones)". I can never work out if Roger Waters blatantly vicious attack of England's Mary Whitehouse and her moral-crusading is either smart thinking or a petulant child with too much money. And when he sings "...ha ha charade you are..." or "...Mary you're nearly a treat...but you're really a cry..." - he sounds like a wordsmith who can't get his words out. But there's absolutely no doubting the clarity of the Remaster and when it breaks down into more Pig noises and that slow Guitar strum - the rhythm instruments are better than ever – and that wild soloing towards the end is great. Many have commented on the similarity between Meddle’s "One Of These Days" and Animal’s "Sheep" - that same backbeat driving the song on. And it ends on the second variant of "Pigs On The Wing" – essentially a slightly different re-run of Part 1.

    Even now I can understand why Punk Rockers (also enjoying a 40th Anniversary or two) despised Pink Floyd and "Animals" – it still reeks of establishment supposedly ribbing itself. But that aside – the CD Remaster is a thing of wonder after all these years of less than great originals and half-assed reissues on newer formats.

    Fan – or just curious - "Animals" on CD is a must buy. Apple (who are finally going to corporate the Battersea Power Station into a multi-media selling powerhouse) will be pleased...

  6. Pink Floyd's ninth studio album entitled Wish You Were Here was released in September of 1975.
    I first received this album on cassette tape (Columbia/CBS JCT 33453) for my ninth birthday on January 24, 1985 from my parents accidentally instead of the compilation A Collection of Great Dance Songs but I thank both of them (especially my mom, may she rest in peace) that they did as today (over 26 years after I first acquired the album on cassette and many copies later, including the remastered CD), it is my all time favorite Pink Floyd album (I apologize to those who like Dark Side, Animals and The Wall more than this), it's also the favorite of Pink Floyd's singer and guitarist David Gilmour and the late co-founder/keyboard player/occasional singer Rick Wright (who passed away in September of 2008).
    The Wish You Were Here album was the band's first for their new deal with Columbia/CBS for most of the world save Europe where they remained with Harvest/EMI.
    The sessions for Wish You Were Here took place between January and July of 1975 at Abbey Road Studios in London with the band once again producing and engineer Brian Humphries engineering.
    The lyrics were once again penned by bass player/singer Roger Waters whom came up with the theme of absence in response to the overwhelming success of their predecessor, 1973's 40 million copies worldwide plus selling The Dark Side of the Moon. It also dealt with the greed of the entertainment business.
    Wish You Were Here only technically contained four tracks as one of the tracks was split in half, but it is nothing but 44 and a half minutes of sonic bliss.
    Wish You Were Here kicks off with "Shine On You Crazy Diamond (parts 1-5)". The music is just amazing and was written by Rick, David and Roger. Rick's synthesizer work on part 1 was very atmospheric before David plays a beautiful sad bluesy guitar solo. Then the four note motif from David's guitar signals Part 2 and Rick's stellar Hammond organ work, Roger's great bass playing and drummer Nick Mason's drumming to come in and play. David is at his bluesiest as far as guitar solos go on part 2. Part 3 has a beautiful Wright synthesizer solo and classic Gilmour solo before segueing into Part 4 at the 8:45 mark. Part 4 is where Roger's lead vocal comes in and he sings the band's epic tribute to fallen Floyd comrade Syd Barrett. Dick Parry's baritone and tenor sax solos on Part 5 end this half of the track which segues into superb machine noises created by the VCS3 to go into the next song. The song "Welcome to the Machine" was the first of two attacks on the record industry with Wright and Waters' synthesizers, David's multi-tracked vocals and acoustic guitars and drummer Nick Mason's tympani flourishes playing flawlessly before ending with superb sound effects thanks to the VCS3 and people laughing.
    The second half of the Wish You Were Here album starts with the rocker "Have a Cigar", another biting commentary on the record business. The track featured the band's Harvest/EMI labelmate Roy Harper on lead vocals (and he did a stellar job). The song was released as a single in the US but didn't chart but a classic nevertheless. Gilmour's ending distorted guitar solo disappears into radio sounds which were recorded in David's car and segues into the album's title track. The title cut was spawned from a riff David had played at Abbey Road and Roger liked it so much that the two sat down and wrote the second best loved Floyd track in the band's repertoire. The lyrics reflect on Syd and wishing he was still together mentally. The coughing fit in the beginning was David's then-smoking habits. He thankfully quit smoking immediately for good after the initial playback during mixing at Abbey Road in 1975 because he was embarrased about the cough but was left in there as a sort of reminder. The wind swirls at the end leads into "Shine On You Crazy Diamond (parts 6-9)". Part 6 of the epic nine-part track is dominated by David's superb guitar work on both the Stratocaster and lap steel and Rick's Solina String and Mini-Moog synthesizer flourishes. We then segue into Part 7 from the guitar solo of Part 4. Roger sings part 7 very passionately. Parts 8 and 9 to Shine On You Crazy Diamond is one of the most powerful pieces of music I ever heard with the former a funky exercise and the latter is one of Wright's best pieces of music.
    When mixing Shine On You Crazy Diamond (which was also the day David married his first wife Ginger), Syd mysteriously showed up at Abbey Road with a shaved bald head and very plump. The band hadn't seen him since 1970 and wouldn't see him again (Syd sadly passed away in 2006).
    When Wish You Were here was released, the album rightfully hit #1 in the band's native UK in its first week and topped the charts here in the US with a bullet in its second week and has sold over 7 million copies to date here in the US (13 million worldwide).
    Sales notwithstanding, this is Pink Floyd at its best musically, lyrically and cohesive as a unit despite the fact the feud in the band was starting to brew and the album still sounds great over 35 years later.
    Now in 2016, this classic album is re-released with the 2011 remaster this time on Pink Floyd's own record label Pink Floyd Records (distributed by Sony Music). The remastering on this is incredible. What James Guthrie and Joel Plante did with this album is excellent. I've owned the 1992 remaster (which was used for the 1994 UK remaster and the 1990s Sony Gold disc), the 1997 and 2000 remaster (which are identical) and the sound is like night and day. This easily is the best sounding Wish You Were Here since the first vinyl issue (which I'm proud to own). The booklet is rather nice as well. The packaging on this trumps the Discovery Edition from 2011 with the CD looking like the original vinyl LP and also the booklet having updated credits and the sticker recreates the original sticker on the LP!
    Highly recommended!

    This is freaking awsome!

    What a great audiophile reissue of Pink Floyd's Pulse, the live album from their Division Bell tour. I wish they would have added another LP with the tracks from the DVD that did not make the vinyl cut, such as One Slip and US and Them. Gilmour's guitar is the star of the show, and these are some of his best recorded live performances. Well worth the price. It is well packaged for delivery.

Pink Floyd

    Emerging from the Syd Barrett-led 60ts phase – PINK FLOYD started the new decade with the frankly bizarre "Atom Heart Mother" – a late 1970 album that signalled the new more Prog sound to come - but in "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast" held onto the lunacy of old. And you have to give them credit for the name "Atom Heart Mother" and the wacky utterly unforgettable artwork – a lone moo-moo staring out at us from a field wondering what in God’s name is that man doing pointing a camera at my posterior when I’m just trying to graze some grass here? Curiouser and Curiouser...

    Always a task trying to find a decent vinyl copy original – the length of the LP at just over 52 minutes did for its fidelity too. But all of that is thankfully part of the past because this 2011 James Guthrie and Joel Plante CD Remaster is a massive improvement on a dog’s ear of a recording (relaunched January 2016 on Pink Floyd Records). Here are the Holy Cows and the Funky Dung...

    UK re-released 8 January 2016 – "Atom Heart Mother" by PINK FLOYD on Pink Floyd Records PFR5 (Barcode 5099902894027) is a straightforward 5-track reissue CD using the Remaster from 2011. It's once again housed in a gatefold card digipak, has a stickered sleeve (on the outer shrinkwrap) with the new catalogue number PFR5, a 12-page colour booklet with photos and lyrics and the same barcode as the 2011 issue (52:06 minutes). The original album gatefold is the centre pages of the booklet while the lyrics (never on the original) are now featured over new photographs of shovels and a pair of boots and other useless and pointless images. It looks nice for sure but informs you of nothing – no history – no liner notes – no updates or insights. It’s a damn shame that 2016 wasn’t used as a way to pump up the booklet into something special from their laughable 'discover nothing' from our 'discovery' editions of 2011. In fact you could argue that this 'Pink Floyd Records' 2016 reissue is in itself 'corporate' – the very thing they raged so much against on "Animals" and "The Wall" in 1977 and 1979.

    The original version of this Remaster was released 26 September 2011 as a 'Discovery Edition' single CD on EMI/Harvest 50999 028940 2 7 (Barcode 5099902894027) – this 2016 version on Pink Floyd Records uses that 2011 remaster and the same artwork. The 'Discovery Edition' sticker is gone as is the horrible 'green and blue Ds' reinvented CD artwork that came with the 2011 issue – that's thankfully been replaced on the CD with the front album cover artwork.

    Tracks 1 to 5 are their 5th album "Atom Heart Mother" – released 10 October 1970 in the UK on Harvest SHVL 781 and in the USA on Harvest SKAO-382. Produced by PINK FLOYD and NORMAN SMITH – Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London in 1970 – it peaked at No. 1 in the UK and No. 55 in the USA.

    Guests: JOHN ALLDIS CHOIR on parts of "Atom Heart Mother"

    Mastered by JAMES GUTHRIE and JOEL PLANTE at Das Boot Recording Studios in Tahoe in California in 2011 - the original 1st generation master tapes have been given a thorough going over (Guthrie is a Sound Engineer associated with the band since 1978). In fact - each song feels like these experts have spent a staggering amount of time worrying over every single nuance - because the audio result is truly impressive. That 2011 remaster has been reused for the January 2016 reissues.

    The entirely instrumental Side 1 six-part suite "Atom Heart Mother" runs to 23:42 minutes and typically fades in with mad brass and a droning synth note. Avant Garde artist RON GEESIN being the fifth accredited writer along with the four boys in the band – gives us a cornucopia of sounds - cars starting up – engines turning over – until it all settles down into a "Meddle" like duo of Richard Wright on Organ and Gilmour on Guitar. The clarity as Gilmour solos over that brass and lone organ is impressive – and as the still unidentified leading lady of the John Aldiss Choir comes sailing in – you can so hear where Mike Oldfield got some of his more orchestral ideas for "Tubular Bells" and "Ommadawn" from. When they fade out and we’re in "Funky Dung" – the Remastered Wright/Gilmour combo of Organ and Guitar is superb and certainly more muscular than I’ve ever heard it - and I still can’t make out what the Kate Bush-mad chanting voices are saying (very cool though).

    After the indulgence of Side 1 - Side 2’s "If" comes as an Acoustic relief – Roger Water's delightfully upbeat "...if I go insane...please don't put your wires in my brain..." lyrics feeling like 1977 and not 1970. The audio on Gilmour's guitar is beautiful and even the background Richard Wright Organ/Piano playing is more evident. Richard Wright then stumps up "Summer '68" which feels like the kind of pretty song that would have not been out of place on 1972's "Obscured By Clouds" or even Kevin Ayers 1971 Harvest Records LP "Whatevershebringswesing". The brass and piano are loud and open for all the right reasons. Gilmour vocals his own "Fat Old Sun" but I've always felt it was not a great song. The album ends on the nutty 13-minutes of "Alan Psychedelic Breakfast" where someone babbles on about liking Marmalade and Porridge as they potter about in a kitchen before keyboards take over. After the musical interlude - it returns to our still unidentified hero warbling this time about 'breakfast in Los Angeles' with 'macrobiotic stuff'. It's fun but that's about all and you can't help thinking that they would have been better just allowing those lovely Acoustic Guitars in the centre passage simply play out the album (music boys - remember).

    "Atom Heart Mother" is part genius, part knob and very much an example of an experimental time and a label prepared to let their artists go a bit bonkers for the sake of their art. But at least on this 2011/2016 CD Remaster - you can now hear it. And that faucet tap dripping that looped on the Side 2 run-out groove as your needle went over to the label can now be heard too. Moo moo indeed...

    PS: OK - Cue the cow jokes:
    I'd review this if only I 'cud' - you should see the 'udder' guy - let's 'milk' this one again - I'd lift this CD but it's too 'heffer' - check out the 'teats' on this one - I think we're 'dung' here...

    I agreed with all the choices included in this Album as the best of the best. I especially liked the new remix of Echoes, an early Floyd song! The guitar level was increased creating a much better song in the Floyd Library. A great collection of all things Floyd, from early works written by Syd, to the best sellers of the 70's. A good representation of the group's works. Pioneers of the Progressive Rock movement!

    a Best compilation of Pink Floyd Music

    In the last year or so, I have read in various places that the vinyl LP is making a comeback, a resurgence, or just not dying out altogether in the CD and MP3 age. As someone who grew up with vinyl as the medium where I heard my favorite music (the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Yes, etc), this comes as little surprise and much delight for me -- the whole experience of the vinyl LP encompassed not just the music on the 12" vinyl slab, but the artwork, graphics, and visual component that was the album cover. and countless PInk Floyd fans who held onto their LPs of 'Dark Side of the Moon' (and kept replacing them as they wore out) and just about any of their other albums would concur with me that they are among the top bands who excelled at providing as compelling visuals as the music itself. Granted, having long now been accustomed to CDs, hearing an entire album in one sitting without having to deal with changing a side of a record, admittedly is a nice convenience, itself more or less rendering the idea of vinyl LPs (with their nasty ticks, pops, and scratches) to the dustbin of audio history. Once Pink Floyd decided to issue as comprehensive a 'best of' career-spanning compilation in 2001, it was released as a two-CD set, and was a very good, non-chronologically sequenced set of Floyd classics that flowed particually well in two sets of thirteen songs apiece -- starting and ending with a Syd Barrett-era track.

    However, much to the delight of this particular fan of the vinyl LP, the 2-CD set was issued some time later as a four-LP box set, on heavyweight vinyl. Both discs' track listing of course is broken up to be spread out over eight sides of vinyl -- this, plus that each LP is wrapped in an individual cover and inner sleeve resplendent with superb Storm Thurgesen visuals (right down to each record's label -- see my images I provided), the 'Echoes' LP box set is very much a winner for any Pink Floyd fan who would prefer to hear this set the way the original albums (except for 'The Division Bell' for which the LP was limited and by then, CDs were de facto) were issued, and the sound of the remastered tracks on fresh vinyl is something to look forward to, for you analog, vinyl fans. The 'Echoes' LP box is the closest way to hear almost all of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" on one side of an LP (they present parts I to VII -- some day it would be nice to hear all nine parts as one cohesive track).

  6. I was glad to finally receive me first copy of "Animals." Packaged like the original and has a phenomenal sound quality. Although only five songs on this particular LP, all are long playing up to 45 minutes plus, each standing on their own. Great songs, especially "Dogs." I've always thought this record was underrated, but people are starting to see that. The reissue/remaster is as just as good as the others I've received-spectacular!

    Pink Floyd Pink Floyd Pink Floyd Pink Floyd

    Pink Floyd's Animals album was released in February of 1977 here in the US and the previous month in Europe (as they were on EMI Europe and Columbia/CBS for the rest of the world).
    I first got this album on cassette in February of 1985 (when I was 9 and had Pigs (Three Different Ones) cut in half but on CD the track is uncut) and I have had the remastered CDs, LP and cassette and 8-track.
    The Animals album was coming hot off of the heels of two chart-topping studio classics, 1973's Dark Side of the Moon and 1975's Wish You Were Here.
    The sessions for Animals took place between April and December of 1976 at the band's own studio Britannia Row Studios in London and like the last few albums was produced by the band members themselves.
    If tensions were bad during Wish You Were Here, they got worse during Animals.
    This was the first album where bass player/singer Roger Waters wrote practically every tune on the album and vetoed anything keyboard player Rick Wright came up with and restricted guitarist/singer/songwriter David Gilmour's contributions to one track, the classic "Dogs".
    The album kicks off with "Pigs on the Wing (pt. 1)" which was a love song to Roger's then-wife Carolyne. Part two of Pigs on the Wing ends the album. Next, was the aforementioned 17 minute epic "Dogs". This song was originally called "You Gotta Be Crazy" but the lyrics were changed to tell the tale of the Donald Trump tycoon types whom are power-hungry people whom kick, bite and claw their way to the top and then eventually grow old and die of cancer caused by the weight of their self-importance.
    The album's second half kicks off with the 11 and a half minute epic "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" which talks about bigoted political leaders. The last verse, "hey you Whitehouse" was misconstrued as an attack on President Ford but is about the late moral majority leader Mary Whitehouse. That track had great guitar work from David (whose guitar dominates throughout the album as a contrast to synthesizers, saxophones and choral sounding backing vocals that dominated DSotM and WYWH). The track "Sheep", originally called "Raving and Drooling", is the final epic on the album and is about the weak-minded people who follow what the dogs and pigs say before finally rebelling at song's end parodying one of the psalms in the bible. We end with "Pigs On the Wing (pt. 2)" which is a reprise of part 1 with different lyrics.
    When Animals was initially released, the album was seen as a critical and commercial disappointment compared to its two predecessors due to the three awkwardly long songs on this album. Animals quickly went Platinum (eventually 4 million in US sales, should be 5 million by now) and shot to #3 but quickly fell from view because the songs were too long, big deal!
    With this 2011 remaster painstakingly done by James Guthrie and Joel Plante (it rivals the 1992 mastering that Doug Sax did for the Shine On box set), Animals today sounds fresh and competent unlike most albums that came out in 1977. The album was just re-released on Pink Floyd's own label called Pink Floyd Records and now has some changes to the artwork (now it has the gatefold pictures in the CD for the first time in years) and also the disc has the Side 1 photo of the dog in field and is superior to the shoddy Discovery CD art and pictures on the Discovery edition.
    The tour to support this album was not a memorable tour for the band. Whilst the rest of the band got used to larger crowds and stadiums, Waters' persona changed from a happy person into a mean, embittered sourpuss (which he is slowly dwindling away from today). On the final night of the Animals tour, Waters admitted to spitting on a fan which would give birth to The Wall (review soon).
    Animals is highly recommended!

    I ordered the Album Animals by Pink Floyd, as the description says, but I received piper at the gates of dawn. I’m fond of the album, so instead of returning it i will add it to the collection. I’m still pretty disappointed by this, and im sure most others would return the product.

    I received the wrong album!!

    Despite (or perhaps because of) a musical landscape utterly blown open by the sheer violence and life-by-the-throat nature of Punk – good old misery guts Roger Waters of Rock Dinosaurs PINK FLOYD didn't seem to notice nor give a rat’s ass.

    Recorded in 1976 and then released into a poisonous British landscape in January 1977 on Harvest SHVL 815 – even its dower Battersea Power Station 'industrial monolith' artwork seemed as grime-grubby as the portentous contents within where our cheery chappies blathered on about Orwellian things like Pigs and Sheep and the occasional Dog to the backdrop of an immaculately recorded guitar. It's coming from the sky – we're all going to die – nice. But none of that stops me from admiring the 2011 James Guthrie and Joel Plante Remaster on this more acidic of Floyd albums – relaunched January 2016 on Pink Floyd Records – the lads now just as corporate as the machine they so raged against nearly 40 years ago.

    "Animals" remastered on CD is a huge improvement over the LP original – an album that sported a hard card inner sleeve itself inside a gatefold cover and has for years been notoriously difficult to get a good vinyl pressing of. This CD is 'massive' – and for all the right reasons – beautiful clarity that's made me reassess my loathing of both it and the 'the system is killing the kids' knob that followed – 1979's double "The Wall". Here are the newly floated Piggies...

    UK re-released 8 January 2016 – "Animals" by PINK FLOYD on Pink Floyd Records PFR10 (Barcode 5099902895123) is a straightforward 5-track reissue CD using the Remaster from 2011. It's once again housed in a gatefold card digipak, has a stickered sleeve (on the outer shrinkwrap) and 12-page colour booklet (41:44 minutes).

    The original version of this Remaster was released 26 September 2011 as a 'Discovery Edition' single CD on EMI/Harvest 50999 028951 2 3 (Barcode 5099902895123) – this 2016 version on Pink Floyd Records uses that 2011 remaster and the same artwork. The 'Discovery Edition' sticker is gone as is the horrible 'green Ds' reinvented CD artwork that came with the 2011 issue – that's thankfully been replaced on the CD with the Side 1 'Dog' label artwork of the original LP. The 'Sheep and Pig' label of Side 2 is nowhere to be seen.

    1. Pigs On The Wing 1 (1:26 minutes)
    2. Dogs (17:05 minutes)
    3. Pigs (Three Different Ones) (11:26 minutes) – Side 2
    4. Sheep (10:20 minutes)

    PINK FLOYD was:
    ROGER WATERS – Bass, Guitar and Lead Vocals
    DAVID GILMOUR – Lead Guitar and Vocals
    RICHARD WRIGHT – Keyboards
    NICK MASON – Drums

    Mastered by JAMES GUTHRIE and JOEL PLANTE at Das Boot Recording Studios in Tahoe in California in 2011 - the original 1st generation master tapes have been given a thorough going over (Guthrie is a Sound Engineer associated with the band since 1978). In fact - each song feels like these experts have spent a staggering amount of time worrying over every single nuance - because the audio result is truly impressive. That remaster has been reused for the January 2016 reissues.

    Essentially three long pieces of music (17, 11 and 10 minutes) bookended by the short one-and-half minute acoustic strums of "Pigs On The Wing" Part 1 and 2 – the Audio improvement is immediate on hearing the opening. This is a beautiful remaster and when we enter the Waters/Gilmour written "Dogs" and its various Guitar-Solo parts – you're clobbered with the Production values Floyd and Engineer BRIAN HUMPHRIES brought to the original 1976 recordings (done at Britannia Row Studios in London). When Waters sings the verse beginning with "...and after a while you can work on points for style..." – the band kicks in, as does Gilmour's fabulous axework that makes the whole seventeen minutes so edgy. You can hear this version. The lyrics are incredibly bleak – old men dying of cancer – people born in a house full of pain – souls trying to shake of the creeping malaise. And when those dogs do start barking and Richard Wright gets a chance to make his keyboard presence felt – the effect is brilliant – ably supporting Gilmour as he rips into his Strat for the first of many solos.

    Side 2 opens with treated piggy grunts and very clear Bass and Keyboard parts before Gilmour flicks that guitar on "Pigs (Three Different Ones)". I can never work out if Roger Waters blatantly vicious attack of England's Mary Whitehouse and her moral-crusading is either smart thinking or a petulant child with too much money. And when he sings "...ha ha charade you are..." or "...Mary you're nearly a treat...but you're really a cry..." - he sounds like a wordsmith who can't get his words out. But there's absolutely no doubting the clarity of the Remaster and when it breaks down into more Pig noises and that slow Guitar strum - the rhythm instruments are better than ever – and that wild soloing towards the end is great. Many have commented on the similarity between Meddle’s "One Of These Days" and Animal’s "Sheep" - that same backbeat driving the song on. And it ends on the second variant of "Pigs On The Wing" – essentially a slightly different re-run of Part 1.

    Even now I can understand why Punk Rockers (also enjoying a 40th Anniversary or two) despised Pink Floyd and "Animals" – it still reeks of establishment supposedly ribbing itself. But that aside – the CD Remaster is a thing of wonder after all these years of less than great originals and half-assed reissues on newer formats.

    Fan – or just curious - "Animals" on CD is a must buy. Apple (who are finally going to corporate the Battersea Power Station into a multi-media selling powerhouse) will be pleased...

    This is the finest tribute to an exceptional musician, Richard Wright. It's also a fitting end of the remaining "Floyd"
    members, with the help of friends, to say goodbye to Richard and his creativity, that will never be equaled by anyone again.

    Rest in Peace Richard

    This is truly one of my favorite CD's by Pink Floyd. Pink Floyd has for many years been one of my favorite bands....... wasn't so sure at first how I would like this one, but took a chance and bought it anyway. So happy I did, as I have played this quite a bit since buying it 3 days ago.
    If you like Pink Floyd you will not be disappointed. This CD is nice easy music with a twist or two, not so much for vocals, but in my opinion a great band does not have to have vocals! Highly recommend!

    This is truly one of my favorite CD's by Pink Floyd

    I just got this Pink Floyd's The Endless River double vinyl album's,lp.And It & they sound Great!

    And It & they sound Great!

    The End, But The Endless River Shall Continue to Flow!
    How weird it is to listen to music recorded by Pink Floyd in 1993, music which marks the end of the greatest group there is (was). And yet in 1994 I saw them live in New Jersey at the Giants Stadium, a show which featured a full Dark Side Of The Moon. Incidentally it was Dark Side Of The Moon which was my first contact with Pink Floyd back in 1973.
    Thank you David, Roger, Rick and Nick for years of wonderful music.

    The End, But The Endless River Shall Continue to Flow!

    Wow! What a disappointment, especially in regards to the hype of the 'new' "Pink FLoyd" album, which itself is a very misleading title. The 'ambient' music (a term I see that is being used quite frequently in reviews for this release) is good music to do yardwork, that is if nothing else is playing! There is not enough of David Gilmour's ethereal guitar sound on this album. He recently did some soundtrack music for a movie called "Vile People" that starred Donald Sutherland. It was scored by Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead fame. It was amazing, Gilmour's work was. I absolutely do not like Radiohead but Dave brought that score to life, folks! Where is that playing here?

    Oh, the poor souls who spent $30 on the deluxe version, I feel for you guys...You will be payin that dough for packaging, which is basically a box, two postcards, a hologram and a "hardback book" that contains track notes and some '94 photos of the group.

    The music is mainly FILLER, which given that is Pink Floyd means GOOD filler, but filler nonetheless. A lack of searing Gilmour Strat is sorely absent. Only one track has vocals and lyrics, which Mr Gilmour sings, in usual appealing tenor. One reviewer stated it perfectly, that this material should have been release as some sort of companion disc for the reissue of "Division Bell." Shoulda woulda coulda! This material is yet another Christmas cash grab. I've actually listened to the album twice, and the main highlight is the only proper song, "Louder Than Words."

    Final Verdict: 4 on a scale of 1 to ten. And for the deluxe package, 2, due to the $30 price tag and lack of anything of substance.

    This is not worth $30, unless you are a completist. I wouldn't buyit.

    I am old enough to remember how big and exciting news was the release of "The division bell", back in 1994, but young enough to think of the subsequent 20 years as a lifetime. The impact of that album was tremendous. So much, in fact, that I felt almost obliged to purchase [[ASIN:B00KBNRZ9K The Division Bell 20th Deluxe Box]]. Whenever the name Pink Floyd comes up, I genuinely feel nothing but utmost respect for this band who has remained consistent throughout their 49-year course, showcasing unique talent and vision in their discography, and exhibiting integrity like very few other bands have. "The endless river", athough featuring mostly instrumental pieces, presents everything that defines Pink Floyd: it is psychedelic, ambitious, emotional, haunting, occasionally self-indulgent, ultimately distinctive. As this is their final record, I am excited to be able to enjoy the first new Pink Floyd album in 20 years, hoping that, in another 20 years from now, I will be reminiscing about the past, thinking about how excited I am feeling now, just like I did back in 1994.
