I have dozens of VMP releases, MoFi releases, even some Analogue Productions albums, and this one sounds better than 99% of the albums I own. It's truly expansive, impressively deep, crisp and absolutely immersive.

This album became an instant reference for my vinyl system, because it does everything well. When I change a component or add some kind of isolation or any other tweak, this is one of the first albums I play to hear the acoustic effect of the change, because I know the record is mastered and pressed well enough to let me hear any nuanced characteristic that may have changed.

If you enjoy this music at all, I can't recommend this pressing enough. It's one of those showcase albums you can throw on to help folks new to vinyl understand why we go through all this trouble. It truly is one of the best examples within the format.

Really happy with the quality of the VMP edition and it sounds fantastic. I would play it more if I didn’t have to flip it over after 2 songs on side B and D. That’s just annoying. I get it, but it’s still annoying.

I guess my copy was pressed at the wrong time of day because there is quite a bit of surface noise off and on throughout both discs. The actual audio sounds perfect, but the surface noise is irritating. I love this album, though. Fiona Apple Rocks.

One of the best sounding records I own. I enjoyed this album while streaming it but it blew my mind when my physical copy arrived. Sounds so rich and full. Brought this amazing album to the next level for me. Well done VMP.

The Release: Presenting this as an album on 45rpm as opposed to 33 1/3rpm is actually really smart. The length of the record may not make it feel that way, but the sound is very rich from start to finish, and, as comments below have eluded to, this is a much superior presentation than any other previous to it, apart from maybe the original VMP press as I don't have that to compare it to. Criminal, in particular, is so vibrant. The packaging is sturdy and the gatefold is very nice. It also comes with a booklet that was a nice touch and certainly one of the more enjoyable VMP Essential extras. Haven't tried the cocktail recipe yet - maybe in the future, I'll get around to it - but on the whole, I'm really happy with how this vinyl looks, feels, and plays.

The Music: As "the record that started it all", Fiona Apple's debut album is an essential release in the 90s singer/songwriter cannon. She's gone on to make four more magnificent albums, but there are singular moments on Tidal, such as Shadowboxer, Sleep to Dream, Criminal, and Never Is a Promise that easily rank among her best work ever. Its an album that shows her has an artist mature in her years and worldview and, ultimately, would see her shunned by the mainstream as she was seen as too "caustic" or "controversial" to remain a commercially-reliable force, despite making music that her contemporaries couldn't even hope to equal. A wonderful record that, as mentioned above, has never sounded better, Tidal is both an essential in anyones collection, and an ideal entry point into one of the most consistently wonderful catalogues in modern music.

Maybe it's just me, but sounds a little flat and soft, not dynamic or the revealing soundscape that others have said. The instruments don't really jump out, no separation, but no surface noise; pretty quiet vinyl. Vocals are crisp but kinda buried in the mix. Not bad, but not glorious.

its sound great! my only critic is that the copy i got was not cut well as the edges are sharp. i was surprised as everything else was quality. so it's not hard to believe when others have gotten copies in not such great of a shape.

I just got this today, and gave it a spin while we were preparing dinner. Wow! I can't wait to sit down in front of the stereo and give it a good, dedicated listen. No issues on my copies. Dead quiet, and no dust or marks. This could turn out to be a reference quality album.
In the summer / fall I had purchased VMP's Fetch the Bolt Cutters and When the Pawn, and thought both were absolutely terrific, and didn't understand why people were complaining about them in comparison to VMP's Tidal. Now I understand. The packaging and presentation here are way above and beyond what I'd expect. The art print, the gatefold sleeve, the lovely booklet and overall packaging are superb. I now also wish they gave When the Pawn this kind of treatment.
Buying this album is is a no-brainer. Buy it while you still can.
