The 180g 2-LP vinyl edition, remastered by Doug Sax at The Mastering Lab from the original analogue tapes, presents on vinyl for the first time all the full length tracks. The original LP featured edited versions in order to fit onto just two sides of vinyl. Here’s how the tracks are presented:

  • Disc 1/Side 1:
    1. Cluster One
    2. What Do You Want From Me
    3. Poles Apart
  • Disc 1/Side 2:
    1. Marooned
    2. A Great Day For Freedom
    3. Wearing The Inside Out
  • Disc 2/Side 3:
    1. Take It Back
    2. Coming Back To Life
    3. Keep Talking
  • Disc 2/Side 4:
    1. Lost For Words
    2. High Hopes

What makes a really amazing record? Great analog recordings and their subsequent vinyl pressings are coveted by music fans for their many positive characteristics. The warmth and soul of a great record is absolutely timeless. Records today remain as vital today as ever, with no regard to decades of technological change. As vinyl junkies dig for the old wax, younger fans send sales of new LPs skyward. Some records are sleepers, but many have real attitude. It is a fact that many records have changed the trajectory of human history. I think most would agree that every ounce of human emotion can be found in their grooves. In their purest form, records are actual physical containers of recorded sound; real musical waveforms are pressed into its vinyl grooves. They simply sound better. As any serious music lover will tell you, vinyl LPs scream to be taken off the shelf and played!

Many see the vinyl LP as collectable, some as a time capsule, while many consider the venerable vinyl LP as the best example of art in Western Civilization. While not every album cover qualifies as art, The Division Bell has aged very well over the last 20 years. The iconic 'twin heads' sculpture is just as striking now as its first appearance back in 1994. It was not really a surprise the album cover was chosen as one of the iconic British LPs represented by a series of commemorative British stamps.

The Division Bell's graphics were one of Storm Thorgerson's crowning achievements. I wish he could have been here to see his 'twin heads' concept revitalized for the new editions. His 'twin heads' are everywhere; four panels from both sides of the gatefold cover, plus two from the inner sleeves. Both the steel and stone heads are represented. Close-ups of the former and latter faces comprise the remaining two panels.

There are no words anywhere inside the Division Bell LP… No musician, production or engineering credits. Not even lyrics are provided. Anything else would have been superfluous. Nothing that is except 'Record 1' and 'Record 2' below the miniature "PF' script icon on each inner sleeve are provided. A closer look at the spine reveals 'Pink Floyd - The Division Bell' printed twice in opposite directions, separated by two small bullseyes… Why? So you can turn the cover upside down to use the 'stone heads' image on the back cover as an alternate front cover! The 2014 2-LP edition also passes the album cover construction grade with a thick gatefold cover stock and a high quality glossy finish. Moreover, the graphic colors are rich and well defined, plus the two inner-sleeves are also top shelf quality. As it is, the album cover design is simply perfect.

The original Division Bell LP had quite a maligned history on vinyl when first issued in 1994. It is hard to believe it could happen to the Floyd on a original studio LP, but several of their songs were actually edited down to fit the album on one vinyl LP! Two LP editions were available at the time; the original UK version was pressed on black vinyl, and the original USA version pressed on transparent blue vinyl. My USA pressing sounds just ok but because of the truncated songs I can't bear to listen to it. The Division Bell's songs have now been restored to their full length and properly formatted on two 180 gram virgin vinyl LPs.
