The production and mastering are immense - lot's of headroom, great stereo-imaging. And as others said it was really crafted to sound great on vinyl. I am really amazed by the quality of this pressing. I am not going to do an album review, but it's a fantastic debut album. Beautiful stuff.

This album sounds absolutely amazing. It's very quiet and the stereo separation is incredible. This is one of those rare cases in which new artists put out on vinyl and they actually care for the media. Highly recommend on vinyl.

Everything on my copy seems identical, but it has different matrix runouts and its missing the etched quote. The runouts are YTLP-118 A WG/NRP and YTLP-118 B WG/NRP

Phenomenal pressing. It sounds fantastic. Super low noise floor. Really 3 dimensional. Lots of detail. No distortion. Also love the extra artwork.

Great production on this one, great singing, and the pressing itself is excellent. Highly recommended!

My copy sounds very distorted, both the lp and the bonus 7" disk. All the songs sound like having been recorded in a different key from the original mastering. Does anyone else have the same problem?

Anybody else got switched labels? My copy has the label of side A on side B and vice versa

I'm usually avoiding records featuring (often annoyingly) dreamy, mellow, seductive female vocals, especially due to the computerised "sexiness" that is so omnipresent in most of what is tagged "modern" r'n'b - its commercially expendable image in the last 20 years which on the other hand is dangerously bordering (if not entirely crossing into) porn, rather than accentuating the erotic and the sensual.

With FKA Twigs, things are audibly and obviously - different. And the equivalent of "mindfuck" - in the broadest sense of the word "sensual". Her videos and lyrics are so explicitly sexual, but where she appears as if to be blown off into the vulgar territory, the performance appears so strong that it leaves you gasping for breath. Although her mellow vocal deliveries might make you feel pretty dizzy at times, she does pull it off tremendously and to great effect, fully in control. Of course, the main ingredient to this success is the FKA's personal taste for weird music that's adding to the pleasant confusion, her voice blending nicely with the often spliced-up and burbling electronics that defy categorisation - turning "seductive" and "sensual" into "threatening" and "challenging".

Sounds too good to be true, but it is.

Fantastic album, could play on repeat for hours. The quality of the pressing is excellent, no surface noise and the crispy production really stands out on the vinyl release.

The record label does not specify the weight of the standard edition to make everyone buy the deluxe edition :( Anyone knows?
