Was excited to get my NEW so called improved mastered sound copy of The Wall on 180 gram. What a huge disapointment! Total dead sound, no highs, dull bass, but surface noise is nill seeing that it is new! Listened to it and kept adjusting bass, treble, went to 2 ch. stereo, 7ch. stereo, tried surround, stadium, live, everything! Had my vol. set on 20 tried louder 18, then pulled out my original and compared back to back with side 1 song two, when I put in the original had to kick the sound down to 24! The original has a outstanding sound, that the highs are ear tingling and the bass you can feel in your breast bone! Can not believe I waited 3 months to hear what I can best describe as MUD for sound. I find all these so called NEW releases are way over engineered, either too bright) (10 c.c. Original soundtrack) or crackly unadjusted mixing (Supertramps Crime) The only positive about this is the packaging! Do yourself a $44.00 favor look for a obi japan version or a german import or clean original copy and you will hear how the LP was meant to be heard!
