The Wall Immersion Box Set

Biography

In the early 1960s, a bunch of boys from Cambridge began jamming together, and out of those encounters were born the early incarnations of Pink Floyd. More than 40 years and 150 million album sales later, the band headlined the biggest global music event in history – Live 8 – and was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. You could say the Floyd has staying power.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inside The Floyd's Wall October 30, 2002
Format:Audio CD
"The Wall," Pink Floyd's 1979 concept album about a rock star's mental breakdown, is a towering monster. It's an album with SO many audio, lyrical, musical & emotional nooks and crannies contained within, that one listen simply will not cut it. "The Wall" is not just an album to listen to, it's an album to be *explored*. It was inspired by then-bandleader Roger Waters' own mental collapse at the end of the Floyd's tour for the "Animals" album. Due to the grind of the mammoth stadium tour for "Animals," and sickened by seeing his own band, in his opinion, become part of the rock business "circus," Waters was mentally & emotionally exhausted beyond comprehension. At the final gig in Montreal, Waters finally snapped, spitting in the face of a young fan sitting up front. Coming home to England to recover, Waters finally decided to exorcise his demons by writing a conceptual piece about his disgust with his life as a rock star, and he began building "The Wall"....With the bulk of the double-album composed by Waters (with a few co-writing contributions from guitarist David Gilmour & producer Bob Ezrin), "The Wall" tells the story of a rock star named Pink and his downward spiral into madness, and all the things in his life that led him there: his father killed in the war when he was only a baby ("Another Brick In The Wall Part 1"), being smothered by his overbearing mother ("Mother"), subjected to abuse at school ("The Happiest Days Of Our Lives"/"Another Brick In The Wall Part 2"), and later, the pressures of his rock-star lifestyle ("One Of My Turns") and the breakdown of his marriage ("Don't Leave Me Now"). Quite simply, "The Wall" is a rock masterwork, and arguably Roger Waters' greatest achievement as a composer. However, to think of the album simply as a "Roger Waters production" would be wrong.

Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Immersion Set Review - Slight Disappointment February 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When the Immersion sets were announced, I was quite excited by the fact that included in the sets were to be the original quad mixes, along with a Blu Ray of the stereo, quad and 5.1 mixes for these albums. Unfortunately this set does NOT come with a Blu Ray, which IS disappointing as it means we are not treated to phenomenal lossless audio at higher quality as we had with previous Immersion sets. For me, the price just isn't worth what you get as what I wanted wasn't included.

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.

No Blu-ray or surround like WYWH and DSOTM = no purchase
If there really is no Blu-ray version, I'm probably going to have to cancel my pre-order. Why tease us with it on Dark Side and WYWH, but not include it on The Wall??

HUGE MISTAKE -- No high resolution SACD versions.
If you really want this to happen, let EMI know! There are a number of efforts ongoing to make our opinions clear:
