5.0 out of 5 stars Still a harsh listen??, 27 Sep 2011
This review is from: Animals [Discovery Edition] (Audio CD)
A quick summary would be a simple NO !!

So , my advice , don't dither. If you love this album , as i do , but have previously found the sound harsh , tinny & all in all, a general let down . Rest assured your new umpteenth re purchase will provide you with the best sounding version.
Its not hugely loud , like some re issues (Zep)for instance.this is i think a good thing.

The previous ultra harsh sound has largely gone . The bass de la Rog is full & resonant, There is so much more detail , what was mushy is now clear.The band sound great. Balanced & enjoyable.

Don't get me wrong this is not light & day, but it is a vast improvement.
Pigs 3 different ones , in particular is fantastic.

Buy , Listen & Enjoy

I agree with reviewer; it sounds great. This is the third time I've bought Animals and the clarity is good on this version. Maybe it's a subtle difference but the guitars seem to sound brighter with more detail throughout the tracks. Only downside is the cardboard sleeve packaging.

I don't think the original was even that bad at all to be honest, just a little bit flat. I think it depends on the equipment you play it back on. Not sure whether to go for this, although it is my favourite floyd album.

You should bear with the digipacks. If you treat them with the care they deserve they become more accessible. My copy of Meddle is digipack and is still fine. More storage room for other CDs. mick Jones.
