My copy from Acoustic Sounds had the wrong stamper used for A side. It is One Direction. They said Sony admitted the mistake and replaced their stock.
First song is "Hey, Angel"

Agree. Bad pressing, noisy sound, nothing to enjoy. Try to get a different version.

I love the album.
But this review is about the por pressing this is the only record that just get noisier and noisier to now barely listening able. I use a nice turntable and a shibata needle with the recomended tracking force. I have tried cleaning it and with no results.. Also compared the cd and this LP pressing. This LP pressing/mastering is rather bright on the edge to be distorted on the highest notes. The CD is way darker and I wold like something in between actual..
The reason I am here is that i am looking for the American 180g pressing of this album. And the feedback on Discogs is better on that pressing than on this one.

Constant surface noise and a lot of distortion when you spin the last two ending songs of each side. The "21" EU pressing wss 180G and a clean one. The "25" EU pressing is just disappointing. I hope the US version is way better.

Actually i did not like the sound quality of this vinyl, is there another better version out there or just the recording process of this album is crappy??? Surely something is wrong about it...

Expensive album, great music off course from Adele. But 21 is a better album i think. I had a issue with this press. Hissing sounds and even scratching sounds. I have sent it back to the store. Maybe it was a bad pressed copy. I get a new copy next week, i get back then.

25 is the long awaited third Album, to be released by British soul singer, Adele. In the almost 5 years between her hit second Album 21 Adele has finally made her comeback. There is no doubting the talent that this Artist posseses as a soul singer. Her voice throughout the Album is almost perfect. However I have major isusse with this Album.

Firstly the instrumental feels very lacking. The music should explode with her voice but it instead feels like it's being held back and shoved in the back . Only really here because it has to be. I don't look down on you for purcashing this album, I just feel as though her wonderful voice would be perfect complimented by a equally wonderfull complete band.

Whilst I was listening I also found that the songs didn't really seem to go perfectly well together and it wasn't a smooth transition between tracks. It felt more like a collection of really good singles than an Album. I wasn't suprised to hear that this Album had nine different producers for an Album made up of eleven tracks.

The last isusse is not about the music completly though I think is very important. Adele's lyrics are absolutley amazing however the theme, lyrics and the style of this Album is so simmilar to her earlier works it is worrying. As an artist she isn't putting anything new on the table. This is not a problem initally but if Adele were to have a hiatus between now and her next album, as bettween 21 and 25. I would be worried that people will forget about Adele as an artist before her next album. She will have to release something very off the wall and strange we are not expecting within the next two or three years for her stay in the public eye.

I do think that Adele is a wonderful singer and this is a above average Album. I just feel as though Adele could achieve a lot more having so much talent.

If I would have to give this Album a score I'd say a 3/5
