Ok. First. This pressing is VERY very good. I actually love it. IF this were the only pressing I had I would be very happy with it and it has its merits. I do have a couple issues. My 2011 version came with a post card a mp3 download a heavy cardboard inner and a poster. This version deleted the poster and the download card. Ok no big deal I guess. So being a huge PF fan and having performed their music for years...I decided to do a 3 album shootout. Using my 1980s Columbia pressing the 2011 Doug Sax pressing and this version. I will say that this version came in last place. Gone is the 3d soundstage of the 80s copy and you can barely hear RW's bass guitar...it is uncanny actually. At least the 2011 version kept the bass guitar in the mix. The 2011 does manage to keep some of the soundstage. This version- as with most remasters- keeps the soundstage panoramic with each instrument -except the bass guitar- flat across...almost like a flat screen tv. Aka Modern remasters where every instrument is pushed up front. Problem with that is what happened to the bass guitar...as a bassist I am perplexed as to why PF would allow the mix to change and almost delete the accurate bass lines and push them into the bass drum. Again its a mater of taste I guess. The biggest revelation is during the Sax solo on Shine on.. on the Columbia version it sounds "real" you can immediately hear the difference...it really is shocking...so... Again I am being critical. Basically if you like the modern remaster sound you will probably love this. So do I. But...check out an earlier mix an see what I am getting at. BTW even the 90s DS cd remasters kept much of the imaging and 3d view. Unlike the new remasters from which this is derived. Again Its just my opinion. PS I wish I had a first pressing available...that would be even more interesting.

The pressing is wonderful but for the presence of a fair bit of crackle at the outset of both sides. Things settle down relatively quickly and from then on, it's a better play by far than my original copy from the 70s. Nice to have the postcard back after having lost the original to the ages!

I now put new records through a deep clean before playing and it solves 90% of noise issues. This pressing is fantastic. Clear! Punchy base! Great dynamic range. A great chill out album.

My copy sounds great, no noise or pops, awesome pressing.

Purchased three 2016 BG remasters Meddle, DSOTM, and WYWH. Wet cleaned with my record cleaning machine and each record was loaded with loud ticks and crackle throughout.
I haven’t had this experience with other modern LP remasters. The music itself is more alive than other versions of LP or SACD copies. Can’t stand all the distractions.

Purchased by copy from Plaid Room Records, absolute peach of a record! very minor surface noise at the beginning few seconds but rest sounds amazing!

I was dreading getting my copy after reading these reviews. I rolled the dice and my copy showed up the same day as my new TT. Very clean and vibrant.

My copy has some popping during the opening of the title track, and seems to attract a lot of dust, but the rest is real smooth. (Score refelcts the music itself).

Is there any way to tell which of the three 2016 pressings I have? Seems like all the identifying information is pretty much identical between them.

My copy starts of with an high noise level and for the first few minutes in the track very loud pops. Despite cleaning with a knosti device and using special nagaoka anti static sleeves. It really aches my heart to hear this when the record comes out of the shrinkwrap sounding like this. Side two is better in all aspects but it's a disapointing experience as a whote. Equipment: Rega P6 with apheta2 MC cartridge and Naim amps.
