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.Read more ›
HOWEVER, that being said, what you get is some amazing stuff. You just don't get lossless 96/24 Blu Rays.
First up is The Wall, digitally remastered by James Guthrie, just like we had with the previous sets. It's a two disc set, so this encompasses discs 1 and 2. You won't hear anything you haven't heard before and the audio doesn't have its dynamics compressed. I think, side by side comparison to previous sets, you would probably really struggle to hear a difference between this release and past releases.
Discs 3 and 4 contain The Wall demo tracks, which are actually nice to hear given alternate takes of songs.
Discs 5 and 6 are what the set really needed. They are remastered CDs of the Is There Anybody Out There: The Wall Live. This is, as far as I can tell, the best these tracks have ever sounded.
Disc 7 is a DVD. I'm kind of on the fence with this one. You get a promo video for Another Brick in the Wall prt 2, a pretty good Behind the Wall documentary and an odd short film from the Earls Court Concert. Why excerpts? Why not a complete performance? I don't know. Oh, there's also a Geral Scarfe interview included, which was a nice watch but not something I'll sit through again.Read more ›

|How 'bout that cover, eh?||
If I was to change it up, me thinks a Ralph Steadman interpretation would have been cool.

|What about the Wall Movie Soundtrack?????||
Couldn't agree more. This really seems like a missed opportunity to release those "Spare Bricks".

|How about the film itself?||
What I think would be even MORE awesome is to include the film on Blu-ray, along with another disc that includes the album tracks that were altered just for the film. That would mean we could get to hear the studio version of "What Shall We Do Now?" for the first time without having to... Read More

|As usual Animals is overlooked.||
I would buy an Animals immersion set without hesitation, provided it included live tracks, unreleased studio material and high resolution stereo and multichannel mixes.
