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?

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?

The self-titled EP from last year was original, I find the LP full of recycled tracks from the EP

I read the same, limited edition 2000 copies. Beautiful packaging and awesome music, the more I listen to it the more I get addicted.

nobody ? aww c'mon. This is up there with 'Blue Lines' and the like. This is neo-soul for now. Intricate beats and sexy but emotional lyrics...a winning combination.

Funnily enough Tahliah's best stuff is not on this LP, e.g. the track on the bonus 7". Anyway, this feels like very much fresh pop music, as taking the R&B thing to somewhere I was waiting long to see it at. Production is beautiful and I see a lot of love was put here. Grand work.

Got the deluxe version of this, and the regular version. Is it true the deluxe is limited to 2000 copies?
