Pink Floyd--- Animals (remastered 2011 copy)

Incredible album. Excellent remaster by James Guthrie.

I have a question about that remaster: is it normal that the volume goes up and down on the talkbox solo of Pigs or is it just my copy? The other CD remaster and my vinyl copy don't do that Tongue

Good question. I haven't really paid attention to be honest, but now that you mention it, I'll have to give Pigs (Three Different Ones) a listen to hear this volume fluctuation.

Just bought:













I already own the Yes Studio Album box set but haven't been impressed at all with those remasters from Rhino. All of these I bought in this order are the 1994 Remasters and I heard they blow the Rhinos away. Really warm but plenty of clarity and no compression.

Also bought the deluxe set of this classic:

Per un Amico is what I meant to say. And yes...yes it is. I'm really happy with it as with the rest coming my way.

Thank you my friends. I was due for a good solid haul. We can add ALAN PARSONS: THE ART OF SOUND.
This is really cool. It's a 10 DVD instructional video on recording tips and other nicknacks.
I plan to learn a lot.

Also Audun. Fill me in on the SWANS whenever you like. Are they very different from THE SMITHS?
Just curious. Like to hear your take.

Prog on friends!

Just bought that last night and I was able to listen to it immediately thanks to Amazon's 'Auto-Rip' feature. Not a bad album. I like the direction Opeth are going in. What did you think about Heritage?

I haven't had a chance to really listen to the whole album all the way through yet, but I like what I hear so far, especially the first couple of songs.  The first has some ELP-esque keyboard work, too. Smile

Heritage was okay.  I felt like it was a little boring in the middle, but it was interesting nonetheless.  Strangley, though, my favorite song from that album was the bonus song, "Pyre".

Yeah, Heritage has some boring parts, but it does contains several good songs like Folklore and Devil's Orchard for example. I just hope Opeth continue on this path.

Agreed.  I love their proggy non-metal side just as much as their death metal side.  It helps that Mikael loves 70's prog, too.
