Maybe the indiscretions of my youth just put me in a more appreciative state of mind for those albums. I don't know that I am more sophisticated in my musical tastes than I was back then, but I do know I have a lot less indiscretions that might put my mind in that appreciative state.

Re: Pink Floyd

Late to the party here but NEVER late with Pink Floyd.

"Remember That Night" Blu-Ray (concert footage) is fantastic, It's David's standard touring band but Wright is there on keyboards.
With other special guests adding just the right amount to some of Pink Floyd classics. I highly recommend it!

A sleeper great 2-channel CD is "The Division Bell", Poles Apart has great dynamics and really shows off your 2 channel.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Re: Pink Floyd

Greetings to all of the Pink Floyd fans on here! I am a huge Floyd fan. My whole sound system has been built around the Dark Side of the Moon SACD, it's my reference disc for any changes made. Wish you were here on SACD sounds absolutely amazing also.

On a side note Wish you were here was the first Pink Floyd album I ever heard. I was around 9 or 10 years old and my friends Dad told me to listen to it, played off LP with headphones. Was absolutely amazing. Nothing ever compared to that sound until I heard the Multi-channel SACD version and it was like hearing it for the first time again.

I am interested in seeing how the Blu-ray audio versions compare but I first have to get a proper Blu-ray player to replace the XBOX one as a player as it has serious limitations when it comes to outputting hi-resolution audio.

Re: Pink Floyd

The Blu Ray version of Wish You Were Here in the box set is far an away the best I have heard. Simply amazing and totally immersive. Ten thumbs up.

Good Listening

Ah, but the world has always been weird, and so will it always be.

Re: Pink Floyd

Just realized I was having a Floyd-free weekend. That'll never do. Time to break out The Division Bell.

On your recommendation I tracked it down and yes it certainly is impressive. I think the SACD version sounds just that little bit better but I think that's more psychological and probably wouldn't hold true in a blind listening test.

I actually put the Allan Parsons Quadrophonic version on by mistake and about 2 or 2 minutes in I was thinking "This sounds quite different" - it was only when I looked at my receiver and noticed the LFE channel missing that I realized that it wasn't the 5.1 mix.

But I kept listening to it and really enjoyed it. Makes me want to track down the Allan Parsons Dark Side of the Moon mix.

So do I, although weird and normal are relative terms

Yeah what were you thinking having a Floyd free weekend?

I actually just got the 20th Anniversary edition of Division Bell and the 5.1 mix has given me a whole new appreciation of that album. Hearing "Wearing the inside out" made me sad Rick Wright is no longer with us though.

Cool! I didn't realize that they released Division Bell with a 5.1 mix and wow 20th anniversary, I remember seeing this in concert when I was in college. Great show and a really underrated album IMO.
