    I need to wash mine even though its new and it would probably sound perfect- as of now the is a dozen


    pops but the mix and mastering iss great- every bit as good as my original 70s pressing

      This is one of the few albums that I have the original pressing as well as the most recent version. I have to say this remaster is truly holding its own against the first pressing! Brilliant pressing! I always clean my records before I play them so I don’t experience any pops n clicks. It is a very good pressing!

        Wonderful Pressing! Sounds beautiful! Some light surface noise between tracks but minimal effect on playback. The only issue I had was a slight click on SOYCD 6-9. Overall great album and brilliant pressing!

          Found this at a little shop in town got it for a good price and sounds great. My copy has no surface noise thankfully.

            Was nice to find this at a store do wish Meddle was in their selection but nonetheless this is a great album too was a bit noisy at the start but I could give a dam when the musics able to shine through love they put all the attention to detail to have it be on par with the original Pink Floyd 4 Life.

              No noise on my copy.

              WYWH was the first PF album I ever bought - but it was on cassette!! Played it non stop on my knockoff walkman while walking to the pool and mowing lawns all that summer (1983 maybe).

              Anyhow, later picked up a used LP version in like '85 and played it on crappy equip. Then had a CD that seemed to have worse sound that either the beat LP or the cassette.

              Play this on a DENON 300 with Sumiko Olympia through a vintage 1974 Yamaha integrated amp and a pair of original Bose 901 Series 1. It is wide and deep and clear and balanced. I played the cd (bought in 1990s) against it and the cd is flat and lacks lustre compared to this pressing.

                I’ve had my copy for a couple years and was always a bit disappointed with the surface noise, especially on the intro on side 1.
                I just bought an inexpensive ($200) ultrasonic cleaner and gave copy a good cleaning.
                What an amazing difference, Dead quiet even when playing at 80 some dB.

                  This would be a great pressing if not for the significant amount of surface noise. As many others have experienced, my copy has very distracting popping and crackling throughout the title track and into the final Shine On movements, which absolutely breaks any spell the music is attempting to cast. Multiple cleanings of both record and stylus have helped, but I think that this manufacturing run was just not up to snuff, and it shows. It's a shame, as everything else about this release is wonderful.

                  Considering asking the label for a replacement.

                  4/5.

                    This is a very good pressing. I do notice the bass is a bit muted, but I wouldn't change it. The guitars sound amazing on this album. highly recommended...great value.
