To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a shame, it's a thick pressing but I have 50 year old records less warped that the 2 I was sent. Also the sound is poor, it's kind of hollow, lacking proper mid range. The piano on Great Gig in the Sky also sounds a bit fluttery, I thought it was me deck at first so I tried on a different deck and it was the same. So I guess this really is a cheap copy packaged to look like quality! I am super disappointed. I guess I need to find an old copy in a record shop or something.
This is my review of the vinyl product - not the music - which of course is superb! At first I was delighted to see that this is the gate fold version - like the original I purchased all those years ago! Complete with stickers and posters too! - then it was downhill from there! The pressing is terrible. Distortion on the vocals on Breathe then once you get to the end of On the Run and the explosion is taken over by ticking clocks, the repetitive crackles on this pressing are really bad. So it continues into Great Gig - ruining the piano and quiet vocal start to this great track. It is just as bad on side 2. Coming out of Money, we have the repetitive crackles again. So packed this up and it's being returned. I bought the new pressing of "Wish you were here" at the same time and that is chalk and cheese. That pressing is so much better than DSOTM.
What a load of boring, flat sounding rubbish. How on earth this has sold so many copies I don't know. The most boring musicians I can think of, they sound like they're giving lessons! Drums sound flat and over damped too, nothing like how real drums sound. I'd heard some of their music years ago on a friends hifi and I remember being unimpressed then but having heard a source comparison of the first part of 'money' on YouTube, I had some interest in giving them another go. What a waste of money I'm sorry to say, I had hoped I might enjoy them this time around but no, just as boring as I remember. I'll give it another listen but I doubt I'll change my mind?
Had to be returned due to scratches on the vinyl and having a slight bend that meant it wouldn't play well and skipped songs, from the moment it was unsealed. Very disappointing. The replacement I ordered was exactly the same, so both had to be returned.
la masterizzazione è terribile, ho cd riprodotti da master degli anni 50 che suonano divinamente. Questo è davvero acusticamente terribile, nonostante abbia mezzi decenti per l'ascolto, la riproduzione (a parte il volume) sembra provenire dalla filodiffusione della galleria ipercoop. Un'accozzaglia di suoni mal distinti. Il packaging, se possibile, è pure peggio, una fessura di cartone in cui inserire nudo e crudo il disco. Sembra un'edizione realizzata in forte economia. Peccato perché si tratta di una pietra miliare, avrebbe meritato molto ma molto di di più. Da denuncia soprattutto perché le aspettative erano alte.
