If I had to give a vinyl to someone who had never listened to vinyl before, I would give them this record to listen to. An absolutely unreal sonic experience. Top notch reissue.

One of the best sounding records in my whole collection purely based on sound. And the songs themselves fit their theme fantastically, with no silence in between, there is always a transition of noise. Even if it is only 4-5 songs I can not recommend this album enough to any listeners. A true masterpiece!
My only gripe would be that the inner sleeve is a bit too tight, even so it looks stunning, like all the art included.

Wonderful album and a fantastic reissue. Superb quality, both packaging and sound quality-wise. There may be better, more premium or super audiophile, versions of this but for me it sounds pretty damn good. Highly recommended.

I don't have any other pressings to compare this to but I can tell you that this one is DEAD quiet and sounds fantastic all around. My one and only complaint is that the record comes tightly packed into a cheap cardboard sleeve and full of static. Definitely brush and wash before you play.

Mine didn't come wrapped in pink plastic ;). But in my humble opinion it sounds great. Being only 40 years I only heard this LP on CD before... And this vinyl version is a revelation. It's beautiful. Very detailed, warm, nice bass but not too much. I absolutely love it.

This is a review about the sound quality, not the music.

I used to have an original 1975 LP back in the day (which I no longer have) and since getting back into vinyl I got this reissue/remaster.
However it just did not seem as good as I remember, it sounded a bit dead, unexciting or engaging.
I was not sure why and then I stumbled across a review by Michael Fremer on Analog Planet which explained why it sounds dead.
See review here http://www.analogplanet.com/content/which-wish-you-were-here-do-you-want#04xgu9x7KzgSmvPV.97

Since reading that review I got a 1975 pressing and proved to myself that MF is correct.
The 1975 issue has more life and very enjoyable, so I prefer the old version despite it having a little less bass and a few crackles.
