I'll break the review down into two sections, the music and the box itself.

The music-
It is incredible. I have owned every Pink Floyd album in various incarnation from UK pressings, to US dollar bin vinyl, and dubbed cassettes to various CD masters. I am rather estranged from most of my vinyl and mostly had MP3 and FLAC versions of recent reissues. Since I had a lot of ad hoc versions downloaded from various sources I was pretty psyched to get the whole collection in one nice newly remastered box. And sonically they are incredible. People are looking for a revelation in sound in the other reviews and you won't necessarily find it here. This is not the first time Pink Floyd's catalog has been well mastered. But it is extraordinary. It is neither over-compressed nor "brick-walled," the dynamics are super clear and this reminds me very much of my old vinyl. Especially albums like Wish You Were Here and Animals, which have always had a tremendous amount of depth and clarity. There is a bit of sonic unity through the masters which is also welcome. You can have a cut from the Division Bell follow in your changer after something from Obscured By Clouds without sounding overly jarring. But that is meant as a compliment to the excellent mastering work which just lets the original tapes shine.

The packaging-
This is where I'm less psyched, and why I am not giving this five stars. The albums are all housed in digi-packs which doesn't bother me as much as other reviewers. However the lack of art does bother me. This is PINK FREAKING FLOYD! The visual element has always been very important. The new booklets are all 8-12 pages long but are mostly lyrics. In some cases, notably Wish You Were Here and the Wall there is actually LESS art than in previous editions.

It was time. Now we got them to their well deserved glory.
I'm a huge fan of Pink Floyd from almost 35 years now, and I've waited for a remastering that was really appropriate since I turned from LP to CD. Now the time has come.
This final release of the Pink Floyd catalog finally makes justice to the music of Floyd. Now everything sounds exactly just like it always should have sound.
Reading the other reviews I discovered that there are people dissatisfied with the sound, and others even claim that there is no difference between the CDs of the 90's and those of this edition, as if the remastering work was not done.
Well, this is absurd and totally false. Openly. Unless their evaluation criterion is based on poor PC speakers.
I can only think about this possibility, really, because I don't want to think that they are not able to catch the big difference. The difference in terms of sound is really too big to be missed.

I have had both "Oh by the way" (which had no new remasters, so there was almost no difference with the editions of 1992 and 1994) and the releases from 1992 and 1994 - and here is really a world of difference between the CDs released in 1992 and those issued in 1994.

In 1992 there was a so called "remastering" editions and here are the conclusions:

1. A Saucerful Of Secrets: terrible sound as the very first release on CD of the album, sound dull and muffled (while the remastering on "Shine On" box released the same year is wonderful; I don't know why such things happen)
2. Meddle: it was an ADD like previous editions, good but nothing more
3. The Dark Side Of The Moon: just enough
4. Wish You Were Here: like the previous editions ADD
5.

Having owned Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Final Cut, Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell in their previously most recent remastered form (I still have DSOTM and The Wall on MoFi), I approached this set with a bit of apprehension. I had considered buying the "Oh, By the Way" box set when it was issued, but decided against it when I read that I already had the most recent remastered versions of the previously listed albums contained in that set. The pricing and numerous bootleg sets were cautionary as well. I bought this set after reading about the "painstaking" remastering supposedly taking place for the entire studio catalog. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed. I hear definite improvements on all of the releases I used to own, especially Animals and WYWH. On DSOTM the variation is not as pronounced, but there is a tad better depth to the soundscape than I could hear before. The same for the others as well. The older releases are great; they sound as if they belong in the here and now, not whispering in the ether banks of yesteryear. In short, an excellent, in some cases stellar remastering job and well worth purchasing for that reason alone. As for the packaging, it is, as some have pointed out, similar to the Beatles stereo box set, with an important difference. In the Beatles set, the discs are crammed so tightly into their sleeves that I bought some slim line disc jewel cases for alternative storage to prevent scratching them every time I wanted a listen. On the Discovery box, the CDs slip easily in and out of their sleeves. As long as you're careful, you should be able to avoid mussing up your discs. I agree that quality miniature LP sleeves ala "Oh,By the Way" would have been preferable (and more thought could have gone into the accompanying 60 page book; it adds little value), but I think the remastering work on Discovery more than offsets the packaging issue and earns this box set five stars from me on that virtue alone.
