This version sounds really good and the color is really nice. Unlike my two copies of Homogenic, this copy doesn't skip at all.

How does this release sound?
I wasn't happy with the sound of the white vinyl reissue in 2015.

My white vinyl is pristine to look at... pure white, sounds great - practically no surface noise clicks or pops... HOWEVER - I have (2x) copies of LP1 in mine, and no LP2.... not just mis-labelled - actually (2x) Side A/B discs ... Anyone else????

Unlike the 2015 coloured reissue, this is not cut from the DMM stampers (There is no mention of 'DMM' anywhere in the runout grooves). It sounds pretty good for the most part.The packaging is great, the gatefold sleeve is glossy and the printed inner sleeves uncoated stock.

Mine is ;

Disc 1 - 160g actually
Disc 2 - 180g actually

What about yours?

I guess mine is original press and I bought second hand so might be switched but the number is both TPLP101.

Aside from the good sound quality, the pressing quality of this release is really bad.
I'm waiting for my fourth copy right now. Each of the three I had before had similar defects:
- side A had weird matte stains which could not be cleaned off and produced loud noise
- black plastic chunks were pressed into the records which produced loud clicks

Unlike the Post and Homogenic coloured vinyl reissues (I haven't seen Debut so can't comment) this does not use reproduction artwork - it seems to be printed from the original masters while the text is newly typeset (unnoticeable except that 'Unison' is misprinted as 'Unisona' on the back, which wasn't the case on the original issue). In addition the vinyl is cut from the DMM stampers created for the 2008 reissue series, meaning you get significantly improved sound quality over the 2001 TPLP101 issue, which distorts badly in several places, even on high-end equipment. If you're tempted by the coloured vinyl series, this, Medulla and Volta are the ones to get - steer clear of the early albums, which have reproduction artwork of varying qualities (reasonable on the Post cover but terrible on the labels; not great on the Homogenic cover but good or possibly even first generation on the inner sleeve and labels). For definitive issues of those, pick up the originals or the 2000 heavy vinyl reissues.

Klein en intiem, dat is de sfeer op Vespertine. Het vierde officiële album van Björk is een fragiel web van trage beats, harp, viool, cello, piano en Björks kinderlijke, ontwapenende stem. In Cocoon is Björk zo dichtbij dat je haar adem naast je hoort ruisen. In It's Not Up To You is ze weer het kleine meisje van Debut met haar elastieken keeltje, zichzelf toezingend en geruststellend: 'het is niet aan jou wat mensen je geven'. Pagan Poetry ontroert, herinneringen oproepend aan zangeres Liz Fraser van Cocteau Twins, met een bijna wanhopige, schreeuwende zanglijn. Het instrumentale Frosti is een klingelende speeldoos, een melancholiek geluid en de toon zet voor het volgende werkje Aurora, dat klinkt als een prachtige kerkhymne. Dan Sun In My Mouth, een sensueel relaas waarin Björk een tekst uit 1925 van de Amerikaanse dichter E.E. Cummings zingt, of eigenlijk vertelt. Tergend eerlijk, kwetsbaar maar sterk, dat is Vespertine. Björk lijkt zichzelf teruggebracht te hebben tot een singer-songwriter met dit - bijna concept - album vol kinderlijke vrolijkheid van een meisje dat huppelt door de krakende sneeuw, die zich met warme melk nestelt bij de open haard, haar speeldoos opent en zichzelf toezingt: 'I laf him, I laf him'.

Yes. My copy also says "Unisona".
