    Splendid packaging and excellent press. No clicks or other strange noises on my version. Sturdy and beautiful packaging. My favorites Learning to Fly and Sorrow sounds absolutely gorgeous. As others have commented I am also unsure about the speed, even adjusting it on my player it often felt slightly fast - but I have not done any proper comparisons with other recordings. If someone is worried and like a proper comparison let me know and I might be able to help. Nice booklet as well.

      This may be the nicest jacket in my collection, it’s sturdy and of great material. Two black poly lined sleeves and a huge booklet.

        Over all this is great and i thoroughly enjoyed listening to this. I purchased after reading the reviews here. My only experenced flaw is on Yet another movie as it has 3 clicks at the beginning that do not belong there, but I am not gonna return it over that. This album sounds fantastic, and instrumental. I was never a fan of the original due to the 80s sound of it but this remix has opened my eyes to the album now.

          i'm obsessed with this remix and this pressing. i never really gave Momentary Lapse it a fair shake because of its reputation. it's like finding a lost pink floyd album. it sounds so friggin good.

            I agree with some others. After listening to the original since release, I just cannot get used to this. The LPs, sleeve, booklet and everything are amazing. The sound is clear, but speed seems off; no matter what tempo/speed adjustments I make on my AT-LP120XUSB.

            This one just isn't for me. I'll stick with the original mix.

              I agree with others, this release sounds incredible. Possibly the best sounding album in my collection. The mix takes some getting to, but I certainly enjoy it and will probably play this as often as the original going forward. I considered not getting this (why do I want a remix??) but am so glad I did.

                Amazing sounding record. High quality pressing. I think this album has actually aged quite well. My wife, who doesn’t like Floyd, was actually really digging it too. (Bonus for me)

                  I don't like the remix as much as the original. It is a high quality release on the 180g LPs and in a good cover and has a pretty thick 24 or 28 page booklet. All of that stuff is cool. Even the 45 RPM speed is not a problem and seems to be the way a few artists have been going lately. But for some reason, I don't know if the music is slower or if my pressing has an issue, but it sounds like it's playing a little bit slower. And yes, I am on 45 RPM and other 45 RPM 12" LPs sound just fine. So it doesn't seem to be my 8-month-old turntable either. The music just sounds slower. Has anybody else had this issue?

                  The fidelity sounds really good and I'm just wishing it was the original 1987 release versus the remixed release. Maybe if it was playing at a more regular sounding speed it would sound better?

                  I'm not a hater of it at all. It's interesting enough to hear things mixed differently but it's not my preference. I need to find a copy of the more recent release I see people mentioning.

                  My main interest in this post is knowing if anybody else thinks the music is just sounding slow? Did they slow it down a little bit? And again, the record player is definitely set on 45 RPM also :-)

                    Great remix and agree with previous contributors on the quality of the vinyl pressing. Sounds better than my latest re-release of the other version and there is a clear difference in many of the keyboard parts, in addition to the remix. Well worth the purchase, as this is a killer post-Waters Floyd album... in my opinion, the best of the post-Waters efforts.

                      I can confirm, Jesus Christ cut this pressing. Absolutely exquisite.
