Superb re-press. Lovely, warm bass and crisp top-end. Beautifully done.

or late 2015.

I haven't weighed it, but this must be at least 180g vinyl.

Don't know what to say about this one.

Except that it is wonderful in every sense of the word. Sparkles all the way through.

Kieran Hebden, whom friends call a "bedroom producer" made me see colors, feel and smell his tunes. If I was to be sitting next to God on a parkbench, this is what he would say. Highlights for me include "She moves she," which will floor you once the awakening electronics enter and "My angel rocks back and forth" which brings back memories so lividly. There is a shift in "My angel rocks back and forth" that just brings everything together. Although its just a for a moment, that moment is the most euphoric bliss I've ever felt in all music I've listened to. A friend burned this CD for me and I fell in love with him for providing me with this emotional, beautiful, spiritual experience.

With <I>Rounds</I>, Four Tet has crafted a modern-day masterpiece. At once abstract and melodic, the tracks on <I>Rounds</I> skip and tinkle, like a fairy on angel dust. “Hands,” the opener, lets you know what you’re in for: some delicate instruments raked over a grater. “She Moves She” set some melancholy plucked strings to a beat, then throws in some stabs of harsh electronic noise; it’s one of my favorite tracks on the album. “My Angel Rocks Back and Forth,” my other favorite track, has a harpsichord line played both backwards and forwards, underlaid with a heavy beat. “Spirit Fingers” speeds up the tempo until the sound is shrill and eerie. “Unspoken” is a longer, using a piano line to create at atmosphere of sadness. For a different vibe, “As Serious As Your Life” adds some funk into the mix, while “Slow Jam” sounds like indie rock. Varied, but always beautiful.

This album is simply amazing. It reminds me of Jenkinson's "music is rotted.." stuff; definitely more analogue sounding. Its more atmospheric than squarepusher though, by far.

Am I the only person who was a little underwhelmed by this lp?
It's not quite as good as Pause but the hype is so big that it's already being mentioned as one of the greatest albums of all time...

It's groovy, She Moves She is a terrific single but some of the other tracks a little directionless.

Kieran Hebden is undoubtedly brilliant but I don't think there is anything on this lp that could rank with some of his finer Fridge moments like "Long Singing".

Good but it ain't gonna change the world.
