Pink Floyd, 'The Wall: Immersion Edition'
By |

In this week's slate of Rolling Stone reviews, David Fricke raves about the "Immersion Edition" of Pink Floyd's landmark album The Wall, noting that "immersion" is "a good way to characterize the grip and whirl of construction recounted on the two CDs of demos in this seven-disc box." Also, Jon Dolan praises the "cardigan-cozy jangle" of the Cranberries' comeback record Roses, Chuck Eddy pans Chiddy Bang's "self-consciously cute" debut and Jody Rosen hails the sci-fi quiet storm of Usher's new single "Climax."
