It seems to being released with new artwork. I don't see anything listed for the US Amazon site.

I really need to listen to his solo stuff. I love that he says it's better than everything except Dark Side and the Wall - classic Roger! I'm actually very interested in this album, I would definitely have listened to it already if my internet connection wasn't so bad.

I've tried to listen to all three of his solo albums, and only Radio K.A.O.S. has ever stuck with me.

I love this album. It definitely would've been an even better album had Gilmour & Wright worked on it, for a Pink Floyd record.

I actually might pick this up if I see it anywhere. I do think this is his best solo album by a nautical mile.

I'm going to order it next week. I have all of his solo albums on vinyl, and this will complete it.

I've ordered the CD/Blu-ray. To be honest this album is too long and too busy. It would have made a great Pink Floyd album but when Roger controls everything this is what happens, an album with too much going on and not enough musical expression. I'm not shelling out £30+ for the LP.

I believe this is also a different mix than the original, with some things that were omitted in the original put back in, so it will be a slightly different album.

I picked it up this afternoon. I just grabbed the CD. I haven't listened to it all yet. I can definitely tell that it's been remastered.

Apparently they remixed the whole thing from scratch leading to all sorts of subtle changes, mostly in the clips that pepper the entire album. Did they remove that backmasking message that takes a shot at Kubrick? Is the funny foreign lady's speech in "Three Wishes" still there?
