I've got 3 versions of AMLOR here.
1. A rip of the original CD version. Sadly done in my early days of ripping and I didn't include any info on exactly what release it was. I bought it in the very earliest days after the CD first hit the stores.
2. The 2 ch mix from The Later Years box
3. The 5.1 mix from the same box set.
Here's the DR files from all three. Sadly it appears as the Later Years 2ch file took a bit of a hit in dynamic range?

Interesting David saying they re-recorded some parts to make it more "timeless" with instruments they are more familiar with?

This is my least favourite Pink Floyd album, mostly because of the instrumentation. I never liked the synth sounds, or the drum sounds on this.

Oh well: it was the 80's and everyone seemed to be into that stuff.

We all have our preferences.
I'm quite fond of MLOR, my least fav is The Final Cut.

Of the two Gilmour era releases, this was always the one I preferred. The title track on Division Bell was pretty much the only song I liked on it.

There is no track on the Division Bell called the Division Bell. Do you mean High Hopes?

Yes, that was it. That's an indication of how little I thought of the album, I couldn't remember the name of the one song I really liked.. Skimming through the rest, I remember also liking Keep Talking.

I hate to be picky but i’m going to be anyway, I just received my Marillion - Fugazi 3 cd and blu-ray set in a lovely book with 62 glossy pages £30, Pink floyd are charging £42 for one cd and blu-ray without the lovely box set. Both are from EMI so the price difference is horrendous, you do get a few stickers from PF for your £12 mind you!

I don't disagree with you, but what do you think you'd pay for a concert ticket to Marillion VS Pink Floyd? :eek:

It's the Pink Floyd tax

surely the cost of something like a reissued CD box set should be reasonably similar regardless of the band?

However the cost of putting on a Pink Floyd tour would be huge compared to Marillion’s (the Division Bell tour had 50+ lorries, 150+ personnel etc) and that would be reflected in the higher concert ticket prices between the two bands

I’ve seen both Pink Floyd and Mariilion live more than once, I realise that PF are a much bigger band but I absolutely refuse to believe that a PF cd costs more to make than a Marillion one, EMI will wring every last penny out of us for certain bands, have you ever seen a mid-price Beatles cd?, no me neither
