Is it that good? I've heard the cd remasters weren't all that great sounding (not to mention they destroyed the iconic cover), but I don't know anyone who got the vinyl.

Although I love Pink Floyd's Dark Side of The Moon (and MUCH more) I never thought it was recorded/sounded that good on Vinyl/Tape/Cd/SACD…its just not recorded/mixed well IMO.

I've always thought like you Joseph, never thought it sounded as good as people say. I even have the mofi gold disc. This reissue is the real deal on vinyl though. Not sure if it was ear fatigue, listened pretty loud, but side two wasn't as impressive sounding. I'll listen again. As to the cover, the speckled ugly cover peals off and the regular cool looking cover is underneath. I was annoyed when I saw it too lol

I've also been impressed by the Zeppelin reissues on vinyl. So far I've picked up 2 and 3, and they're the best I've heard them sound.

I'm going to put forward Archive - You All Look The Same To Me (2002) to the others I've suggested. Complex layering beautifully produced. They sound very similar to Pink Floyd at times. It's mesmerizing me more and more every time I play it :bigsmile_face:

That's good to know. I've been trying to find out how they sound (The newest reissue, right? Not the 90's one?), but they seem to be either loved or hated by everyone.

I think some people hate them on principal because they are cut from a hi res digital source. I've read that the analog masters were fragile, so they made hi res copies and used those. I've only heard them on crappy 80's vinyl, and these blow them away, so I don't care...
post #268 of 381
And yes, the newest ones. Most of what I've read says that the only ones that sound better are the first pressings from the 60's and 70's. Good luck finding them in good shape for 25 bucks! I'm happy with them and I'm definitely not easy to please when it comes to this stuff...

Daft Punk - Random Access Memories

 

A modern electronic album which is brilliantly recorded. Engineered by Bob Ludwig I think this is a classic in the making.

"Daft Punk spent four years and over a million dollars on their quest to revisit the golden age of record production." -soundonsound.com

 

Well you can hear it!
