EDITORS’ NOTES

As sprawling as their earlier epic The Dark Side of the Moon yet more focused, this 1975 jewel featured lengthy, left-of-center excursions (“Shine on You Crazy Diamond”) that were both majestic and reverent—along with a couple barbs thrown at the music industry ("Have a Cigar," "Welcome to the Machine"). It's also partly Pink Floyd’s anguished and glorious tribute to the gifted Syd Barrett—whose career with the band ended seven years earlier—and a moving set from top to bottom.

Excellent Sound Quality

Let me start by saying that I do still have my vinyl copy, I had it on 8 track, cassette and finally on CD. That being said the question for me wasn't is this an album I should get because it is great, but rather, is the sound quality any better than the CD copy that I have transfered to my iTunes library that has a very muddy sound? Well I am here to say that YES it is remarkably better, a huge improvement over my CD copy. I also got Dark Side Of The Moon for the same reason and I am not disappointed. Who ever is incharge of Apple's Re-Mastering did a GREAT job. So if you are like me and already own all the previous lesser quality versions you will not be wasting your money if you purchase this copy.
