The Wall Read, Look and Research before you buy!

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.
