Customer Reviews

One of my favorite albums ever!
jterrell
And I listened to a lot of their stuff because it was different and, (like the album Medal) was kinda FAR OUT!
Michael Cast
No, but for a new remaster it actually sounds pretty good.

My main purpose in purchasing this CD was for the bonus material. However, the Experience Version contains three CDs, not four as stated by Amazon. Furthermore, this edition contains twenty-seven demos on one disc, not thirty-five demos over two discs. So, unless Amazon is selling a special edition (I did extensive research in deciding whether to purchase this or the $119 Immersion version, and did not see any mention of this anywhere), this version contains three CDs.

Discs 1 and 2 are the 2011 James Guthrie remasters of the album. Disc 3 contains 27 demos, all of which are "band" demos rather than Roger or David's "home demos." Since the demos were my main interest and reason for buying this, I will address that topic first. The Immersion version does contain two CDs worth of demos, containing a total of 64. Since I do not have that version, I will not address whether I am lacking anything essential by not having the 37 additional demos that appear on that version. Based on my research I am not. At least 22 of the 37 demos on Immersion are excerpts of Roger's home recordings totaling about 15 minutes. Two others are David's demos of "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell." Other than that, the remainder appear to be additional band demos at various stages of development, all of which appear in at least one form or another on Experience. The actual demos themselves are titled "Work in Progress" and are aimed at giving a glimpse into how the project came to its final form. My interest was more in hearing alternate versions of songs and the two songs that did not make the album. In my opinion, except for completists, the Experience version does a good job at this.

This remaster of "The Wall" is a bit louder than the Mofi version of the album but, on the whole, James Guthrie (a long time collaborator with Pink Floyd) has done a nice job of eliciting as much detail and depth for a 16 bit CD as possible. Unfortunately, as much as I would have liked to wait on the "Immersion" set because of the extras (demos, Blu-ray, previously released live discs), I can't justify spending that kind of money to myself so ended up picking this up again to replace my Mofi which was damaged.

I purchased this set to replace my Mofi version of the album on CD. Is this as good as the Mofi? No, but for a new remaster it actually sounds pretty good. The packaging is qutie nice redesigned for this latest CD release.

I am disappointed that EMI has chosen (and the band members) NOT to reissue this with bonus tracks for the regular edition (the the two discs run around 81 minutes combined)is pretty inexcusable but not a surprise given that this is Floyd which, The Beatles, Stones and Eagles aside, are among the biggest selling artists out there.

Although this isn't my favorite Pink Floyd album, there's no denying the power of the music the band came up with on its last release to feature Gilmour, Mason, Waters and Wright. As most fans are aware Wright was no more than a hired hand here (he had been fired by the band)and Waters who had increasingly begun to dominate the band's musical and lyrical direction continues to do so here. It's still very much a band effort though (as much as I love and enjoy "The Final Cut" the final effort from the Waters led edition of the band, it's almost a Waters solo album with Gilmour and Mason more in the role of sidemen).

Bottom line: Is it worthwhile buying this again if you have it?

This review will contain strictly my thoughts on the Guthrie remaster and NOT on the the album's lyrical or conceptual qualities. Lets start off with my equipment; I'm testing this cd on my full british hifi system ( Musical Fidelity A1 CD Pro, Musical Fideltiy A1 Integrated Amp, Bower and Wilkins 805 speaker). Forget the Doug Sax version along with the previous Guthrie 1994 remastered disc set; if you want audiophile sonic quality this is the version to buy. This copy of the remaster retains all the character and essence of the original LP with added dynamic punch and texture lost in the previous versions. It is evident that much time was spent refining this album as its overall product is significantly different from past remasters. Especially on "Hey You" and "One of my turns" the imaging and sound stage really shine and show the real remastering magic from Guthrie. I don't care much for the miniaturized LP paper packaging sleeve; honestly I would have preferred an actual cd case but that is a very minor problem. I would recommend this album to anyone with at least an entry level hifi system or hifi level headphones. This is a must have for die hard pink floyd fans personally I enjoy more of the remastered disc found on the discovery sets instead of the live performance discs or other miscellaneous recordings which in my opinion are neither here nor there; they just don't hit that spot for me and are neither of any high sonic qualities. And for those who already have all the previous "The Wall" albums the difference with this 2011 remaster are definitely worth the cash. Great sounding hifi quality music will always deserve my hard earned money.
