    There's no need to critique the musical content on this album. It's Pink Floyd. If you didn't like them you wouldn't be reading this. The music is just as incredible as it was in 1975. This re-release is a very fitting tribute to the content on it. The vinyl is heavy, extremely well pressed, and gorgeous. It sounds velvet smooth, the highs are bright, lows are tight. It is simply pleasing, and stunning, to listen to. Turn the lights low and leave the cell phone in the other room. Close your eyes, relax, listen closely and enjoy. The jacket and sleeve are faithful reproductions of the original release. Even the post card is included. If you love Floyd, and have re-discovered the beauty of vinyl...or even if you're just now starting into vinyl...you must buy this album.

    Defective Vinyl

    Through no fault of Best Buy, the album had a series of pops and snaps which ruined the music. I returned the record and exchanged it for the same item. BB was very accommodating in making the exchange. Unfortunately,the second record had the same issue, but in a different location on the album. Very disappointing as I will now need to return this one, as well. I am confident my experience in making the return will be very good. In spite of this issue, I will recommend BB to a friend.

    I read reviews that some of these are knock-offs but decided to take the chance and purchase it anyway. If MG is etched in the vinyl, it's the good remastering. Fortunately for me, I got the correct version. It sounds amazing. I love all the layers of packaging as well. I was a bit bummed however because I thought a postcard would be included because other sites online advertised this. Upon my second time listening, I found the postcard. It was in a really conspicuous place but I was really happy to find it.

    Classic Floyd. What else needs to be said? Sounds great on vinyl. Just one thing. Though this is the 2016 release, the album is the 2011 pressing. You can tell from the signature of the mastering engineer on the album deadspace near the label. For whatever reason, the 2016 release in America has the 2011 album in it, but the European release contains the 2016 pressing... I don't care, but for some purists living in the states, it may matter.

    Loving the Remasters

    I got out of the vinyl game a LONG time ago but kept my collection. I'm back in the swing of things, and have come to appreciate clean-sounding vinyl. I've also learned to appreciate Pink Floyd in recent years. Now, I'm glad they're releasing these remasters and I really love how they're sounding on my simple record player. I can appreciate the collectors, but dang these sound exceptionally good.

    amazing album obviously. key to remember when buying the vinyl is to make sure it's release date is 10/14/16 and the sticker on the package says "mastered by bernie grundman from original analogue tapes" If it doesn't say that on the sticker (which should be on the right side) then you'll get the 2011 Doug Sax remaster which you DONT want.

    The album contains two radio classics: Have a Cigar and Wish You Were Here as well as the long tracks Shine on You Crazy Diamond (pts 1-5 and 6-9) that run over twelve minutes each. A good intro to the band.
