Roger Waters: Amused To Death 2 LP 200 Gram Vinyl Quality Record Pressings 2016 Includes Shipping USA
200-gram gatefold double LP pressed at Quality Record Pressings!
"In some ways, this is even better than The Wall. Waters got a lot of top performers to play on the album, usually behind his singing and speaking of the lyrics .... Guitarist Jeff Beck is heard frequently in the album, with his special virtuosity on eight of the tracks. ... (Waters is) certainly at his cynical best here - and without him Pink Floyd — never mind the general doom and gloom — wouldn't have been the top rock group it is and was." — Audiophile Audition, Jan. 12, 2016.
"Despite the bombast and conceit, this long-time audiophile favorite sounds outstanding in this 200-gram vinyl edition. Back in the day you needed some pretty heady drugs to make DSOTM sound this good, and the stellar line-up of musicians, with Jeff Beck on eight tracks, makes for a pharmaceutical-free audiophile amusement ride. The LP surfaces are dead quiet too, allowing you to hear every nuance of cricket chirp and dog bark." Recording = 9.5/10; Music = 8.5/10 - Dennis D. Davis, Hi-Fi +, Issue 128
"I have the original double vinyl issue of this, that until recently went for upwards of $600, and this reissue beats that one in every possible way ... The QSoundTM "surround sound" is more intensely drawn, dynamics are staggering, deep bass is monumental and the depth and width of the cinematic soundstage is beyond that of every other record I can think of in my collection. The 200g QRP pressing I got (sealed) was perfectly quiet and flat and after sitting through all four sides I felt as if I'd experienced a 3D IMAX movie, only with greater sonic intensity and dimensionality." — Music = 9/11; Sound
