After many re-issues with no improvement in sound PINK FLOYD's / ANIMALS finally sounds excellent.
James Guthrie and Co. , did a fantastic job remastering 1 of PINK FLOYD's best albums.
They DID turn up the volume on this 2011 remaster and it is louder [but not too loud] than the 1992 and Japanese versions. It is even better than the OH BY THE WAY versions which were mostly a collection of older remasters.
What you hear on this 2011 remaster is more bass , more drums and a lot more clarity from each instrument. Very crisp at the high ends.
These are not the STEVE HOFFMAN kind of too quiet CDs nor are they as loud as LED ZEPPELIN : MOTHERSHIP CDs. They are the perfect balance between those two. No over compression. Just warm and joyful. I wish that JAMES GUTHRIE would remaster even more older CDs for other bands too.
I could apply this same review to the single CDs , The Dark Side Of The Moon , Wish You Were Here , Meddle , The Wall and A Momentary Lapse Of Reason , as well.
AMLoR , was not only remastered but it was re-mixed as well. If you loved The BEATLES remasters volume and sound , you will just love thses CDs.
Other reviewers at Amazon.ca have written just how great the PINK FLOYD : DISCOVERY box set is and going by the sound of these 6 CDs those reviewers are right on!
I know that many others and I will never have to buy these regular PINK FLOYD CDs again. They are that excellent!
