One of the greatest albums of all time. On a good system, this release sounds absolutely jaw-dropping (just make sure to use speakers, the QSound tech makes it sound a bit strange on headphones). HOWEVER, it does have occasional clicks and surface noise (even after 2 very thorough wet cleanings) which you wouldn't expect from a release of this caliber. Honestly, I have 80's vinyl with quieter surfaces. I'd take a properly pressed standard weight over all this 200g nonsense any day.

An album like this, with many quiet passages, is better suited to the CD format.

Even though the sound is magnificent, there was quite a lot of crackles first. However, after a good wood glue cleaning most of the crackles disappeared and the sound is nearly dead quiet now!

Fairly good issue, but I have expected more. I used to have this album on a CD ever since it came out in the nineties, one of my dearest albums in collection. Now for the first time I have heard it on vinyl - far better sound than CD, it is more dynamic, very smooth and warm. However, at the price I paid, I would like it to be cleaner, with less cracks and noise. I will have to try and wash it, then I might edit this review. In any case, anyone who loves Roger Waters, this album is a must have, but it is worth considering other re-issues, I heard there is a 45 RPM version in the pipeline.

No ( colur ) booklet ! No embossed front cover ! Gatefold ( original was a single cover ), so when you open it
there's songs" texst all over it, which looks s....y!
This way costs are definitely minimized and it's soundwise not as same as original was, i.e. instrument passages missing.
Well, it's cheaper to get then Original.

So...now you know it.

A lot of the album has been changed. Some of Jeff Beck's guitar had been removed, why ?????. Disappointed, although the pressing is top notch.

Purchased new, my copy of this record was perfect as far as pressing and surface noise go. One of the best sounding records I have heard on vinyl (the music is anyone's taste, I think it's very much in the vein of The Wall, and I enjoy it very much on this LP). Anyway, fantastic sonics, great reissue by AP.

I'm actually a bit disappointed about this pressing. The cover is fine and the vinyls look nice and I know it's a delicate and very dynamic album, but sadly there are a lot of pops and clicks throughout it. Considering the advertisement of being the best of the best in regards to pressing and a cost around 45€ I think the end result could/should have been much better.
