    Sure. But TER was essentially stuff in the vaults from TDB already. I’m sure there’s more, and maybe it’s better than that. But this is where it starts to feel like they’re selling leftovers of leftovers. I’d have loved a big Division Bell box with all the outtakes, but it feels instead like they’re squeezing fans: here’s a big Division Bell box you have to buy to get the 5.1 mix, but nothing else! Oh, they’re complaining, ok, here’s the 5.1 mix you can order. Now here’s our new, final album, comprised of Division Bell outtakes! Now get ready for The Later Years, where we’ll release, uh, OTHER Division Bell outtakes.

    This could have easily been handled with one good deluxe set, and I’d have plunked my money down like I did for the Immersion sets. That’s all I’m saying.

    New mix? Is a remix of A Momentary Lapse of Reason in the works?

    I’m glad there will be a new mix of AMLOR as I was disappointed when it seemed to be scrapped a few years ago

    I’m assuming there is a distinction between “a new mix” from the original recording (hopefully with a 5.1 version) and the “de-80s” project which involved new recordings.

    It's a new mix with new drums and keyboards.

    I thought they canned that project? Weren't they doing a more modern re record of Lapse and then canned it?

    To be honest I like the mix and atmosphere of lapse as it is a very dark album and I suspect they would lighten it up which I would not like.

    Hope they make the best to make this new mix sound less 80s.

    I hope they don't change the mood from dark and foreboding to light and airy like Division Bell.

    Lapse is a dark dreary album and I love that about it.

    I have never disliked Momentary Lapse Of Reason personally. It is an eighties album, but it was made in the eighties, so I would expect that

    rontoon's statement isn't an assumption.

    The project was apparently resurrected. I wouldn't judge the new mix w/o first hearing it. I've only heard good things about it so far.
    Yes.

    Good advice. Just as you should never assume you know who you're having a conversation with. ;)

    So we have confirmation of some of the contents of the box then!

    Yeah, I'd love to get a Wright box at some point. 2 solo albums, plus some of Rick's unreleased stuff would be fantastic.

    I wonder if "new keyboards and drums" means new personnel came in to play instruments, or if they've got the original analog drum stems and MIDI sequences and set them to new effects and samples.

    I'd prefer the latter.

    Nick played the new drum parts and they used Rick's keyboards from the tour multitracks.
    And then some if you've been keeping up. :D

    I'm looking forward to listening to the About Face out-takes from this box!

    I hope that solo stuff is not included.

    Well I’m excited for this box. I think the remix of Momentary makes it a must have.

    I hope they make an Immersion-sized box to match the others. I wasn’t keen on the oversized Early Year box.

    Why would it be? This is labeled as Floyd, not Gilmour.
