the mastering on this pressing in my opinion sounds awesome on my setup.i'm guessing i got lucky on receiving a clean copy as QC on modern pressings can be hit or miss very impressed with this reissue.

Just picked up a copy on Record Store Day since I didn't have it in my collection and it was there at the store. Though I am very disappointed with the quality control of the records here, as popping is extremely frequent on all sides, even after cleaning. Worst of all, as soon as I took the second record out of its sleeve, I found that there was a huge gash of a scratch of side 3. It's a shame really, because from what I hear the mix for this remaster sounds amazing, but it sorta pisses me off that I paid $50 for these low quality and extremely fragile records. I have an original pressing of DSoTM from 1973 and it sounds better than this remaster that I just bought last week. Extremely disappointed.

Holy fucking background noise Batman. Side 2 starts with a repetitive popping, but luckily it stops when Gilmour's guitar starts. A little obnoxious, but tolerable. But then, holy hell side 3. After "Hey You" there's a constant whooshing distortion that persists until "Comfortably Numb" (which is full of sibilance). All this coupled with intermittent pops (some far louder than others) and a general low volume forcing you to crank it up, thus making the pops even fucking louder. When you can actually hear the music clearly it sounds absolutely fantastic, it's startling how dynamic the mix is. Unfortunately, all that's overshadowed by the prep time I'll need for the deepest record cleaning of my life (which might not even help). Maybe after that I'll like this pressing better, but as it stands I'm very disappointed.

I have this exact same release (double-checked all bar code numbers, labels, etc...), but my version does not have the text "Pink Floyd The Wall" graffiti on the front cover. It is only the white brick wall, just as the rear cover.

And the pressing is not as good as all the other remasters I have (PFRLP6/8/9/10/12, which are just amazing), as this one contains much static, even after multiple thorough cleaning through a vinyl washer and stored in MoFi sleeves.

Hmm, obviously a digital pressing. Nothing sounds like the 1979 promo. Well worth the price if you can find one.

Not liking it right now. Played a used Black Sabbath reissue, not sure if it was a remaster. Sounded great! Put The Wall on. Brand new. In the Flesh. Thinking it's gonna kick in all dynamic. Right away, I was thinking is this analog? Maybe to compressed? Sounds flat and dull. No dynamics either. Put on side 2 popping bad right away. Record has a warp. So, I think maybe I should try cleaning. I look at surface first and there's a scratch. So, I clean and turn it up. Levels seem low. Thinking it may be a little better. Hear crackling already. Used Japanese reissue of Animals blows this away! Do you have to clean a coating off these or something? They also need to give it nice audiophile sleeves. Cardboard scuffs bad. I may return and get a beat original for $15 less. Is there a break-in period? BTW, Sabbath was warped too. Hear this is an issue with new LP's. Not my pricey Japanese pressing.

I purchased this album a few weeks ago at a Best Buy store. As soon as I got it home I put the records in anti-static sleeves. I finally listened to the entire album today and must say that I am very pleased with the sound quality.
(My audio system consists of a U-Turn Orbit Custom turntable with the Grado Black1 cartridge and built-in pre-amp; a Sony STR-DH540 multi-channel receiver; Klipsch HD Theatre 600 speakers [surround sound system]).
I did not wash my records before playing but did wipe them with a micro-fiber cloth sprayed with anti-static spray and used a carbon fiber brush to brush away surface dust, using a bright flashlight to really see the record surface to remove most all visible dust. As expected there were a few clicks during playing, but I believe those were from dust and not any defect in the pressing of the records. The discs were flat and not warped in any way.
The sound to me was fantastic. All instruments sounded good and clear. No background noise was heard. Vocals sounded natural.
I cannot compare this vinyl record to any other as I can't ever recall listening to it on vinyl in person. As I have read some people say, older pressings sound better but I really can't believe that because records will degrade with every play. So if you have a 1979 issue of this album I am sure it has been played many times and just does not have the sound of when it was new.
I recommend this pressing for anyone interested in getting it. I am extremely pleased with mine.

I've gone through 2 copies of this release that have had what sounds to me like non-fill spots for the first minute of track B1. Were the mastering job not absolutely stunning, I'd look for another release. However, this record is incredible. Curious to see if anyone else hears the same defect in track B1 though.
