I do have some comments, which may align with comments by other members. I have the Europe variant 3 pressing so a little later on.

Vinyl pressing is ok, no real complaints, I have heard and own much better, but I have heard much worse in new pressings of late. The vinyl is fairly quiet and shown no real noise as commented by other members.

To my ears, this album is very loud, and does sound 'heavily' compressed , the quiet Adele piano section on Hello is fine, but when the track builds, much of the dynamics are lost. My view is 'a little too much' compression has been applied.

Unbearable pressing. Sounds like mp3s from the 90's with lowest sample rate.

"Bad pressing, noisy sound, crappy, etc."
Have no idea, what people listened to!?
Clear and deep sound! Just perfect vinyl mastering!

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.
