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.

It will take awhile to get through this one.

I think, side by side comparison to previous sets, you would probably really struggle to hear a difference between this release and past releases.

Of course I'd love to have a full live concert video in Blu - Ray or a remaster of the movie; but all the extras were great.

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.

I love floyd but i think this is a big rip off for the price. The first two discs are basically last years remasters, the next 2 are a re-release of the live "Is there anybody out there" from 2000, quality is more or less the same, slightly better. The 4th and 5th discs are great and DVD is ok. So essentially, only real floyd fans are going to buy this and they will already have discs 1-4, so they are paying big money for 2 cds and dvd basically.

If you never had the Wall its probably reasonable value, still think its over priced

I must start with the fact that I am a huge fan of Pink Floyd, and already have every scrap of material that I can own from them. So why purchase this? For me it was to be a completist. I have the other two new immersion box sets, so I have to get this. If you are not like me, and just want what is absolutely new (the two demo discs), then the experience 4 disc version would do just fine for you, and save you a lot of cash. The contents of 4 of the discs are previously release (the wall album and is there anybody out there live cd's), but remixed. The remixing is really not that special for me. The 2 demo discs were the must haves for me, and they are pretty cool to hear what was going on through the evolution of this album. The dvd was not that great, has a documentary on the movie that was previously released on 20th anniversary wall dvd and concert films, but not worth extra cash from casual listeners. The packaging is good, artwork excellent, and coasters, marbles, and scarf neat also. This would have been the be-all, end all box set and gotten 5 Stars from me had they just took the time and put a blu ray version of The Wall film in here or a live recording of the wall performance with the original members from that time period, or best if both. Overall, get the experience edition unless you get the good deal I did and have the shelf space and extra cash to purchase this.

This set is not like the previous immersion sets. No surround or super high fidelity stuff. Just the same The Wall and The Wall Live discs, remastered to Roger Waters' high standards. Which is great. But for this kind of money, one would expect some new recordings of these songs. Discs 5 & 6 are filled with mostly snippets of the raw, unpolished "demos" that were the basis for the songs we all recognize. Honestly, they suck, and I can't, for the life of me, understand why Mr. Waters would even want us to hear them. Here is an opportunity for him to share with his fans some of the miles and miles of tape he has from all the concerts Pink Floyd performed. But no, not even one song! If you are looking for something new, don't look here. If you want the remastered versions of these two albumns, then, by all means, buy it. Come on Roger, share a little!

Probably the most famous and complete of Pink Floyd's many concept albums. In fact, it's a full-blown rock opera, about a rock star's descent into madness and isolation. An interesting theme, and it's executed a lot better than I thought it was, with plenty of psychological manipulation, musical impact points, and big-deal radio hits. It also features arguably the greatest opening in any album ever, the beginning of "In the Flesh?" It opens with some barely audible keyboard noise, which dares you to turn the volume up, just so you can make sure there's nothing wrong with your stereo. And, once you have turned it up, it kicks into the blaring, bombastic but wonderful riff. And that is how you start an album, especially an album as psychological as this one. There are also all kinds of sound effects, just to really mess with your head: helicopter noises, a baby crying in" the famous "how can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?" recitation, anguished screams, answering machines beeping, TV sets being destroyed, backwards messages to Syd Barrett, a naïve "Look, mummy, there's an aeroplane up in the sky!"... The album is packed with classic songs: "Another Brick in the Wall, pt. 2," a strident disco-rocker with a brilliant guitar solo; the disquieting, folksy "Mother;" the desolate "Hey You," with some of the best guitar work on the record, hard rockers "Young Lust" and "Run Like Hell," and especially "Comfortably Numb," with a brilliant guitar solo and swooning strings. Besides the hits, the best songs are usually on the eerie side ("Goodbye Blue Sky," "The Thin Ice," "Another Brick in the Wall pt. 1," "Empty Spaces," which could be an excerpt of "Welcome to the Machine," "Don't Leave Me Now," "Is There Anybody Out There?Read more ›

If I was to change it up, me thinks a Ralph Steadman interpretation would have been cool.

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.
