This release is a winner on all levels. Spacious and airy, the record breathes like a living being. Total lifelike recreation of a chart-topping, pioneering, way-ahead-of-its-time blockbuster. As someone else has stated — the sound is subtle but amazing and the packaging is really well done. Some of the more interesting moments occur during Welcome to the Machine where the sound effects in the song's intro really come to life in a way I've never experienced.
Bid with total confidence as I provide only top-notch products and unparalleled customer service. It's as if they knew at the album's creation that this format would be available. It's dense with detail, but leisurely paced, creating its own dark, haunting world. I have head this album many a time over the years but never this dull or soft bodied. And that's before they heard it like this! Whenever I expect to be uplifted I am simply unmoved by the content.
Performance: Sonics: Just finished listening to it. . The dynamics have been spripped away. . Welcome to the machine was a tragic example of what Im talking about.
Something happened in the transfer process. Pink Floyd may have better albums than Dark Side of the Moon, but no other record defines them quite as well as this one. And oh how lucky we all are to still be around to hear this legendary studio recording in its full potential. . On the cd they spring forth in a more believable way. While this disc isnt nearly that bad.
Both Sound amazing and the surround mix which is the same on both media is truly putting you inside the music. Rick Wright had been fired during the making of The Wall -- he was hired as a contract player during the recording and tour -- and Waters split after the release of The Final Cut, assuming that it was the end of the band. The cresendo on this song flat lines. Was this review helpful to you? Compared to the cd it is limpid in the dynamic range area. Time and again there are so many examples of this negative quality on this disc. The primary revelation of Dark Side of the Moon is what a little focus does for the band. Shine On You Crazy Diamond Parts 6-9 5.
The same can be told of the 2. Wish You Were Here 5. Despite that big box containing a 5. Increasing the volume may help a bit as there is no compression but unlike many sacd's that do pop into focus this one never does. I can't recommend it enough.
Any fan of multichannel audio needs to be buy this. The Wall arrived in theaters in 1982 and turned into a midnight movie staple. Now to listen to the original quad! Who killed the Lady of the manor? And the companion book to the exhibition has a lenticular Dark Side inlay on it. Will we ever be able to purchase The Wall in surround or Meddle? Whatever instrument is heard on this sacd sounds ever so slightly muffled and restricted in sound. Shine On You Crazy Diamond Parts 1-5 2. Regardless of its surround sound aspect, this is a dazzling effort.
. Very smooth sounding and easy on the ears. And if there is a Media Mail option, why not be upfront about it with customers? This disc doesnt sound bad. While the cd is not as smooth as the sacd. Over time it is likely to become more widely available in Europe and other territories.
