This is a sonic and musical masterpiece. What the best sides of The Dark Side of The Moon have to offer is not hard to hear : the biggest, immediate staging in the largest acoustic space, the most Tubey Magic, without which you have almost nothing. Digital give you clean and clear, but only the best vintage vinyl pressings offer the kind of Tubey Magic that was on the Tapes in 1973. Correct amount of weight down low; natural tonality in the midrange - with all the instruments having the correct timbre; transparency, and resolution, critical to hearing into the three-dimensional space of the studio. The best copies are not brighter or hyped-up in any way, they are just bigger and clearer. You have to play as LOUD as possible, and then you will hear the difference ! Early british pressings are the best, forget modern , digitally sourced reissues !! ( just my opinion)

A very good copy, absolutely cleen, with great dynamics, but about this point, I remember the original pressing my dad had me listen to, I remember that there was more dynamic on "Money" for exemple, I think Pink Floyd always payed a lot of care about that it's part of the magic, close to classic/orchestral albums, very low volume and then boom, a music explosion...that brings all the emotion.
But all tracks have a really good dynamic, I really enjoy that, and some other tracks have maybe a bit more dynamic than the original pressing...they did some good work.
it's all about what I remember, the last time I listened to the original pressing was like 4 or 5 years ago..
But as about all the remastering, the bass are more prononced, but still there are not to high, and for that there are some passages of the album I enjoy more because of that, but for one or the other I think it was not necessary...
But about all remastering have a boost in the low frequency, and depending on your sound system (speakers..) you may notice less small details in the high frequency range...I listened it with crap speakers and it was worse than the original, but with a decent audio system I like it more (I'm speaking for this remastering, not all the others, it's not true for all of them).
Sometimes I ask myself "but why did they work on something that is great ? What do they want more?"

In my opinion there are plenty of albums wich should not have been remastered...they where good as they where...
Maybe they enjoy to try new thinks.

But overall, don't forget it was a top selling for years, a master piece...and still now it's selling good, it's a "must have" album.

All good !

To be honest, I have several different releases of TDOTM. But this one here sound very clean, but somehow lifeless and for my taste too much bass. The bass shouldn't be as dominant as it is on this release, because it covers all the details. I compared it to my original pressing (UK 1973) and the CD from 1994. In my opinion is the original LP from 1973 and the CD a better choice due to the details of the music. Less bass seems to be old fashioned in these days.

I own multiple versions of this album. I have a Canadian first press, a Mofi 'italicized' version, a 100th anniversary EMI copy, a 20th anniversary edition, and a few others as well. To my ears, all of them kill this newer remaster. I found my copy to be dead, lifeless, and lacking in soundstage. Separation and definition were also weak. I should state, however, that my equipment is extremely discriminating. If you have a run of the mill system, you probably won't hear much of a difference. If that is the case, this is definitely an inexpensive way to introduce yourself to Pink Floyd on vinyl but, this remaster is by no means comparable to most of the earlier analogue presses. If you have a great system, don't waste your money. There are plenty of earlier analogue copies available which will smoke this edition. Yes, you might spend a little more but, I believe it's worth it if you own quality stereo components. This remaster is a thumbs down for me. I gave my copy away.

While it's not an AAA pressing, this might be the best modern iteration of this iconic album. Outstanding packaging and a high quality, black as night (silent) pressing. Oh, and did I mention that it sounds amazing? Seriously, the remaster is amazing.

Created with love for mere mortals with modest budgets.

It's a good reprint, a wonderfull alternative for expensive originals. It sounds quite simmilar to the original, at least to my unproffessional ear.
