    I received this version but this is not the original 2016 release, the black cover with the 2016 sticker is missing and there is only a black plastic cover and inside the album with a white cover and the man on fire. So be aware of it when ordering.

      Love the remastered sound, just as the Animals remastered edition. It is bigger than ever! I am not disappointed.

        Picked up a brand new, sealed copy for 18 euros. I don't really get it why some people are bashing this reissue so hard, I might be lucky with my copy, but it sounds great and it is dead quiet. James Guthrie and Bernie Grundman surely made a briliant job on this one. No doubt that the first UK pressing would sound better but those originals are pricey and I reckon it is nearly impossible to find a decent copy wich is not worn out and still sounds at least this good. If listening experience is more important for you than the collecting passion, do yourself a favour and get this reissue. In my opinion it is great.

          A lot of pops and clicks even after multiple cleanings.
          Sound-wise also not impressed: to me it sounds base-focused. lacking dynamics

            deadly quiet. probably the best quality record in my humble collection

              Perfect sounding reissue. DEAD silent, no clicks/pops, no distortion, absolute high quality.

                In a way, this is the most Floydian Pink Floyd record they made. The opening track (SHINE ON…) is a slow canoe trip down a river of melody. Followed by Orwellian darkness and the reprieve of the classic WYWH. I grew up listening to this on CD in the mid-to-late 90s and this 2016 BG cut is close to flawless and sounds absolutely wonderful. DSD pressed well is the future of reissues anyway, once all the tapes are dead, so we’ll probably shelve our analogue stridency.

                I replaced this with a much more expensive UK 1st press (-1 -5), but I honestly can’t say it’s better than this 2016. It’s just an historical artifact with a little more value.

                I also owned the 2016 cut of DSOTM and, in the spirit of finding analogue cuts, I bought NM copies of MoFi’s 1979 and Kevin Gray’s 2003 pressings. While I ultimately replaced this 2016 with a UK 1st press Quadraphonic, I admit the 2016 sounds better than both of the previous analogue cuts I had. That’s not to say it’s the best cut out there - obviously - but it is to say these 2016 remasters are really phenomenal, especially if you just want great sounding cuts of these records. I also have the 2016 cuts of THE WALL and had ANIMALS before I replaced it with the “2018” remix (which is the best version of ANIMALS to my ears due to the remix).

                You really won’t go wrong with these 2016 reissues.

                  Fantastic record but terrible mastering - sounds flat and soulless when comparing to other versions, no Pink Floyd "oomph!" in the sound.
                  Played it side by side on the same system with a flac rip of an older release, completely different experience.

                    my first contact with Pink Floyd in the early 80’s and still my favorite album. the pressing is fantastic. killer sound. very nice reproduction worth the money. only recommendation: clean it good and put it in Nagaoka inner sleeves. the LP is a dust magnet.

                      No noise worth mentioning and overall just excellent sound. Nothing to complain about.
