I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Legacy Recordings artist: Pink Floyd - Animals (2018 Remix) - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Animals (2018 Remix) (September 16, 2022)  from Pink Floyd and its terrific. I had the opportunity to play this newly redone 5.1 mix on a half plus million dollar hifi system and it really shines. I am lucky to have frequent access to this system so I have heard a lot of music through it but rarely review my cds through it. The music is really immersive and special effects like random dogs, birds (and barnyard animals) appear in different places in space throughout the listening space. Drum thumps are immense and seem much more crisp and more real, twin guitar leads are more distinct, Wrights synthesized keys are more floating  … a fabulous experience. Gilmores prime lead solo on opening track, Dogs seems to be placed squarely in front of me and live. Very cool. On Pigs on the Wing 1 Gilmore’s acoustic guitar and vocals are very present. On Pigs On the Wing 2 the vocal mix is even dryer and more real sounding. Very nice. Feature track, Pigs, is much more dynamic than I've ever heard with Gilmore's guitar lead sailing about behind my head and accent riffs drift throughout the ether around a firmly anchored Waters' bass and Mason's drum set mid stage. Gilmore's most rich layered leads are center stage along with acoustic work which is dramatically more evident. Waters' lead vocals are well balanced but distinct from backing vocals. Wright's synth work is clear and wild. Yes. I was one of the fortunate probably over a million people who saw this tour in the flesh but I have to say, even though there are no flying pigs in this room, not much else is missing. Wow! 

 'Animals 2018 Remix' will be released on CD, LP (with gatefold artwork), Blu-ray, SACD and Deluxe Gatefold formats. The Deluxe Gatefold version includes LP, CD, audio Blu-ray, audio DVD and a 32-page book.
