PINK FLOYD – A Momentary Lapse Of Reason [Japanese Ltd. miniLP remastered] (2017)
This just released Japanese Cardboard sleeve remastered reissue of PINK FLOYD ’80s album “A Momentary Lapse Of Reason” is presented in a mini LP format which faithfully replicates its original UK LP design. The OBI also faithfully replicates its Japan first pressing edition.
“A Momentary Lapse Of Reason” is the ‘different’ Pink Floyd album, considered a David Gilmour solo effort, with that typical 1987 glossy, bombastic production and commercial melodies. Many Floyd rabid fans do not like this record … for me, an ’80s sound sucker, this is a terrific recording.
Call me nuts, but this is Pink Floyd / David Gilmour goes AOR.
The layers of multi-track melodies are simply awesome, one of the best produced albums from the ’80s. Period.
Oh, and this Japanese Limited Edition reissue sounds fan-damn-tastic.
A MUST HAVE for any ’80s fan.
