    Very good pressing! Love the James Guthrie remastering. Silent, good soundstage, very balanced.

      Scored this a few years ago for less than 20 bucks new (lol!). I'm happy with it's playback, nice n quiet, flat pressing, and warrrrm. Cymbals and some highs could be a tad brighter in my opinion, maybe it's my elliptical stylus just not digging deep enough. Will eventually dig deeper with a fine line swap and hear if there's any difference...
      Just picked up the original UK pressing and can't wait to compare! Animals is one of the greatest albums ever released by anyone, anywhere, from any time, a testament to the peerless writing of Waters, and the formidable collaborative force that was once Waters/Gilmour (whether David got proper credit or not). Gilmour obviously had way more enthusiasm when contributing his guitar parts here than say, The Final Cut. Sucks that these two still hate one another, and with Wright gone it's now impossible to even think of a proper reunion tour :(
      I was too young to have seen this tour live (I was 7 when released), and that's just a low down dirty ass shame! Must have been something to brag about for sure!

        I have long been happy with my standard US and pink vinyl French pressings, but thought I would give this a go since the reviews are so good. It really is as good as people say. Amazing sound on this one. Really all these Floyd reissues are great, so I should not be surprised.

          I would like to say not all pressings are created equal.
          Nice clean flat pressing I like the soundstage over my British pressing this has way more balls...
          The bottom_end is not muddy like the uk cut nor do the high_hats sound like trash cans!
          Vocals are more forward in the mix rather then buried guitars have more presence without harshness..

            My copy is good A1 thru B2, sound is full and clear, vinyl is silent with only couple of tiny ticks barely audible. However, there are more problems with the 1:27 last cut with 20 or so repeating annoying zips and ticks. I ordered a second copy and I had exactly the same results. Wondering if I order another copy I will see any improvement in this area.
            Hate to have the entire suite of songs end with all the distracting noises. Is it because the manufacturer is trying to squeeze too many grooves on one side and we get infill issues on the inner grooves? Same issues on the 5 copies of Marvin Gaye 50th anniversary I have tried.

              My copy was clean, flat, and quiet. Audio is full and present. Fills the room. I can’t compare to an original UK as I don’t have one but this is recommended. Very nice pressing.

              UPDATE: I have since been fortunate enough to get an original UK pressing, so I can compare the two. Initial pressing is more "full", a little louder, and the drums hit a bit harder. One would expect this. However, the modern pressing is still recommended for those who just want a copy of this on vinyl or can't get original pressings for whatever reason. Nothing wrong with the 2016 releases at all.

                A superb flat and quiet pressing of a much overlooked album that lives in the tall shadows of WYWH and DSOTM. However, it stands up very well to the decades that have since passed us by. Such a glorious record that is well presented and even has the cardboard lyric inner as a throwback to the original. (Don’t keep it in there!)

                  This pressing is utterly stunning!! For the price it is fantastic. If you wanna shell out big bucks for UK go for it.
                  It’s not needed though save your money. This release is 90% of a mint UK first press as well 90% less in cost 😄.

                    First copy:
                    Yet another fantastic sounding Pink Floyd reissue, altho a tiny bit muddier than the others of the Big Four, it still sounds superb. Great dynamic sound, and no static to be found despite being in a cardboard sleeve
                    Second copy:
                    Sounds a lot better than I remember, definitely pick this up. I think I just got a slightly worse copy with my first one cuz this new one sounds great

                      Decent pressing quality, nice mastering, guitar has more body. Overall this pressing has better bass frequencies throughout the mix as compared to the US pressing. The Uk is held up as the gold standard
                      But at $30 bucks I really can’t complain. My pressing is flat and quiet (thankfully) seems that the image on the front has had the “brightness” cranked up on it, Kinda weird. Thin card stock cover. Is it disingenuous to put remastered from the analog master tapes on the hype, if it’s a digital transfer from those tapes? Is it in fact a transfer?
                      I would
