I think it looks beautiful! What about you people? It is not finally confirmed as the final cover but looks probable. :-)

Nice! Not as good as the original LP version, though. Well, obviously. :wink:

I think it looks pretty nice, I mean they had to make a few changes to differentiate from the original. I wonder if it will come with any inserts like the first?

What's wrong with the origional look just slap a 30th anniversary sticker on it and be done.It ain't like a cd and album are the same size.I think I could tell the difference anyway.

I think it gives it a new lease of life and looks rather beautiful. A matt black cover with a beautiful rough texture would have been better though. :lol:

Ok, call me a bit thick or whatever, but what's an SACD? If it's just a rere;ease of the cd then why bother? Anyone who wants it will already have it.

No you're right i don't. I hardly doubt anything worth while is ever going to happen in the world of pink floyd when the band pretty much stopped years ago.

Although i will read it now :lol:

I don't think the album cover should be changed. The black background contributed to the album's atmosphere.

I'm not quite sure why I like it. There's something... seminal about it. I mean, the original is MORE seminal, obviously, but... blabbum con charlie gone bogus mandate ludolf signia molesti boll. That's why. :arrow:
