"There are several re-issues and 2 remasters I think, maybe you got a duff version ?
The vinyl I got sounds great and the steven wilson remaster is sposed to be really good."

I have 'original master edition' CD from 2004. Everything on there sounds great, very clean and open and crisp with nice bass. I was just referring specifically to the drum sound which doesn't have enough oomph for my liking. The snare is very rat-a-tat-tat. Maybe I've just been listening to to too much Zeppelin!

Yeah no denying it's extremely skilful playing. Perhaps it's because I do most of my listening through headphones that I notice this stuff more. I'll blast it through speakers and see what happens.

if Bruford and Bonzo were cops - Bruford would be trying to pick the lock with some intricate clever gizmo while bonzo just says 'fook it' and hits it down in one blow with a sledgehammer

I have the same version and I agree about the drums. They sound better on Poseidon imo (I'm talking about the sound, not the playing).

Yeah man it's especially noticeable during the jam section of '21st Century Schizoid Man'. I'm not bagging the playing at all, quite the opposite. The playing is phenomenal.

I haven't heard Poseidon yet. I only have this, Larks and Red. Which one(s) do you guys recommend I check next if so far I like Red the best?

@Tommy: If you like Red the best I'd say get Starless and Bible Black next.
