    Is there a a2u b2u first press UK, which does not skip one groove further at the middle of PIGS, side 2? [ I mean without a repair]

      This pressing's really nice, the music comes with it. Beautifully done, oh yes! To be honest, it did not crack a SINGLE time or pop. Simply superb!

        A few references to the 2018 re-mix here." If it ain`t broke..."

        This is the original and the best.Some records don`t need to be dragged into the 21st century.

          I have a nice one but it is 2u/3u... wouldnt mind a 2u/2u if one ever pops up

          I have the 2018 and the mix is ok, very modern. The vinyl pressing is so bad though.

          A nice clean 77 is all you need.

              THE version to listen to.

              The remix is fine, but they made it sound like “Wish You Were Here” which is not the right tone for this album.

              Dark, dank and relevant as ever.

                I love my pressing. Not even tempted to check out the 2018 remix.

                  I'm relieved to report that despite the reviews below I went ahead and bought this lp and it is fine - a tiny bit of non-fill at the beginning of side 2 that is quite listenable, silent otherwise. I do miss a bit the dark and murky atmosphere of the original but this one is clearer and the bassline is much easier to follow. The anthemic chiming guitar at the end has never sounded as triumphant. All in all, one of the very rare worthwhile reissues, most of which is thanks to the fantastic tube equipment and mastering chops of the estimable Bernie Grundman in my opinion. So it is back to anthropocentrism city for me and the Pink Floyd and I'm wondering just how much Orwell they read in the 70s?

                    I have a UK pressing with HMT etched on the dead wax and see that it says it's similar to this pressing but wanted anyone's second opinion?
                    Thank you!
