180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - 2 LPs Sealed
Ranked 87/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Sourced from the original master tapes, cut by noted engineer Doug Sax, and overseen by resident Pink Floyd producer James Guthrie, this pressing bests anything you've heard. Teeming with stunning dynamics, an immense front-to-back soundstage, newly uncovered details, balanced transients, and tube-amplifier warmth, this dead-quiet pressing will have you truly hearing this all-time classic with fresh ears. Whether you already have The Wall on an older analog pressing or on one of myriad CD versions, YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS PRESSING
One of the most acclaimed concept albums of all time, The Wall is renowned as Roger Waters rock opera dealing with the abandonment and personal isolation of a rock star. Replete with smooth production, complex vignettes, and lacerating self-pity, the album yielded the U.S. and U.K. #1 hit "Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2," and was subsequently adapted for cinema by Alan Parker featuring Bob Geldof in the lead role.
No matter your generation, you've heard of and will relate to The Wall. Treat yourself and experience it like never before with this pressing, sourced from the original master tapes and finally back on LP after being out of print for many years. Having taken one year to make, Rolling Stone nailed the record's genius when the magazine called it "Rock's ultimate self-pity opera, The Wall is also hypnotic in its indulgence: the totalitarian thunder of "In the Flesh?" the suicidal languor of "Comfortably Numb," the Brechtian drama of "The Trial.""
The vinyl remastering is sourced from the original analog master tapes for these amazing transfers. Cut by expert cutting engineer, Doug Sax and overseen by James Guthrie for the best sound quality possible.

I've owed The Wall in various forms over the years. From the original vinyl pressing, MFSL vinyl pressing, to CD, to MFSL gold disc/SACD. This remastered, 180g edition BLOWS THEM ALL AWAY. I'm very impressed with Doug Sax. Usually I'm skeptical when anything is hyped, but I gave it a shot and I'm very glad I did. When it says, "YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS PRESSING", in the description, believe me, YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS PRESSING! Added bonus is the free 320kbs high quality Mp3 digital download. There is a new, added poster, but it's of the lyrics, which are already printed on the heavy weight card stock inner sleeves. Kind of pointless, if you ask me. But, it's the only negative thing I have to say about it. This is an AAAA++++ platinum pressing and EVERY Floyd fan should own it.
Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
