Pink Floyd Aficionados

So as we progress on our audiophile journey one of the greatest rewards is hearing something new in a recording that we've never heard before; at least it is for me.

I have heard Animals easily a hundred times since it's release.

This has to do with the Sheep track.

I placed a new to me preamp in the chain recently. In the last 20 seconds there is a ghost vocal that I had never heard. Originally it was 4 notes which were indistinguishable but clearly there. 

Even more recently I upgraded my speakers from Von Schweikert VR4 Jrs to VS VR4 SRMKIII. Now those same notes, while still indistinguishable, have expanded to what seems to be a shepherd faintly directing the flock from a distance.

Has anyone else heard these? I know there are more resolving systems than mine by a wide margin so my question is does it become even more resolved to the point of being able to make out the words?


Disappointingly only Birds and Sheep while listening at a very high volume .

twice so I can listen to each speaker .


Man, I don't know.  I put my "regular" CD in, Couldnt find my SACD at the moment.  Turned up my Focal Aria's and only heard some mumbling with the Birds and Sheep.  Need to put the headphones on and hook up the Project PS2 amp..... will report back.  LOL


You really think it's bad?  Curious why the band would have approved it if it was bad.  


Yes, it is horrible!
 And to answer your question,  Roger Waters did the album on his own, without any of the remaining PF members, and because he wrote all the songs in the first place,  the band didn’t need to approve.  

@curiousjim, waters did not write all the songs, the lyrics yes but all the music compositions, no it was a joint effort.  It is the worst pile of s*** and even worse than his last POS "Is this the life we really want".  Waters needs to put his pen away for good.
