I just listened to Pink Floyd's "The Wall" on CD for the first time in a long time. I might have the original Columbia 2-CD issue, I don't know. But it sounded like crap. Muddy and thick.


And so I went and did a search for remastered CDs of it... and I can't figure out if there has been a remaster, or even which pressing of this CD I should be listening to! I don't want to pay hundreds for the gold CDs, and I am purely SDCD, not SA or DVD-A.


I can't believe that there's no better CD pressing of this album from such a sonically important band!


Can you help me by telling me (linking me to) which CD I need to buy to get the best possible rendition of "The Wall"?


Thanks for your help!

If you can find it, the OOP Mobile Fidelity version but it's pricey:

If it's out of your range (I can completely understand this), you may wanna try the 1994 remaster.  Never heard it but here's what Amazon says:
