    Hey, Jamie, hope this sounds really good. The last UK version I bought was as flat and dull as fXXk. I have not been impressed by the quality of this album for quite some time.

    Isn't this, ... "The Wall" is one of Floyd's best recordings, and always impresses, ... where we came in.

    In fact, the recent re-release I have on CD is even worse than the vinyl with respect to overall sound quality and tone. I have no idea why the copy I have sounds so bad but when compared to TDSOTM this album is tragic.

    The spotify stream of the wall is very flat too. Dsotm is much better on it so its maybe just bad dynamics of the mastering ....you get that with vinyl too. Ive an old vinyl of ds and although not all that early, its probably a 5th, it sounds the best ive heard it. The sacd is not great in comparison to the original cd either.

    Yes, I have the SACD of TDSOTM and it is just wrong in many ways when compared to the ordinary vinyl version. I have an early barcode free copy and a recent issue and both sound bloody wonderful. My re-issue of WYWH is also incredibly poor tonally. I can't comment on mastering and mixing but something is just wrong with these albums and it appears to be very variable.

    I have a jap copy too. Very good.
    I recently bought the new pressing hoping it might be better. I don't think it is, just a slightly different mix.

    A good purchase, the jap copy.

    I have several copies,but still,when I play it, much prefer my original UK release,clicks and scratches included,it's just so much more alive than any re-issues I have heard.

    I have heard every digital version of the wall available and they are all crap compared with the original vinyl which is simple stunning. I suspect its all to do with the mixing and mastering. The 24 bit version is even worse than 16 bit.
