Alison has a beautiful voice. It is on this album her voice rests most beautifully.

It's a very strange - alien - album, beguiling with its beauty; under its surface many other creatures lurk. When you listen to the lyrics and strange noises, you notice the album is more experimental than it first seems with its seamless beauty.

The whistling on Lovely Head is an example of the album's brilliance; it is timeless, the stuff of classics. (So good it could be exploited for a major commercial - luckily we can forget the product they were selling and the sound remains.) "Fascist baby" with a candy sweetener; this is an album to listen to and dream along with.

[Regarding the white vinyl pressing; STUMM188X. Barcode: 5-414939-924460. Not the RSD pressing which some have complained about. It's rarely something with which I notice a difference, but the sound quality is astounding. Of course you have to turn the volume up from the CD setting. Volume up, the vinyl sounds better than the CD - gut reaction. It genuinely made me wonder . . . I am not a techno head, why can't they always get it right like this?]

My copy seems to be a good pressing - clear as a bell.

A beautiful and fitting repress on 180gram White Vinyl of this album was created nearly 15 years after it's original release. It was cut at a lower volume than this 1st press, making for silky smooth playback with plenty of room to crank. This 2000 Black Vinyl release was also 180gram (not advertised as such), but often came with different pressing flaws such as pre-echo and noisy runnin divots. Other differences between the two pressings is that the Black Vinyl came in a heavy-duty printed inner that was less likely to get seam-splits, unlike the flimsy inners that the Whites come in.

I pretty much stay right away from 180gram reissues, more often than not they are very disappointing, ( usual reasons, they can sound like someone has smothered your speakers with a blanket, they can sound way too tinny, sibilance issues, horrible distortion from being pressed too loud etc)
Even though I have the original pressing of Goldfrapps Felt Mountain which has some serious distortion issues (whether it was a pressing fault or the fact I bought it 2nd hand and previous owner damaged it with a worn stylus or something I'm not sure) I thought this excellent album was worth taking a chance on with the 180 gram reissue even just out of curiosity.
I have just purchased and listened to the european white vinyl 180 gram reissue and I am extremely impressed.
It just felt right to my ears straight away, not pressed too quiet or too loud, no dreaded sibilance or inner groove distortion.
The real test was the high frequency sounds, again very little to absolutely no distortion.
I was even surprised at how well it handled the brilliant track Deer Stop, even the distorted vocals didn't get over distorted which is even more remarkable considering it closes out side 1 ( anyone familiar with vinyl will know that distortion is much more evident towards the end of each side)
I think I heard maybe 2 very faint ticks on the whole album and background noise was almost non existent, it was beautifully quiet throughout.
No vinyl pressing is ever going to be perfect there's always gonna be some surface noise, distortion, sibilance etc, either there will be very little and hardly noticeable,somewhere inbetween or alot, that's just the nature and charm of vinyl, but the quality of the pressing and how it's treated on repeated spins can make a huge difference.
In closing I would definitely recommend this european 180gram reissue to anyone who wants this album on vinyl, hopefully a vinyl reissue of Goldfrapps Seventh Tree can be done this well, I'd buy it in a flash.

Skip this and get the European pressing. Returned my RSD copy and did just that. Better quality all around and a heavyweight pressing (with accurate reproduction of the original labels, unlike this one). I'm over these rush-released Record Store Day "exclusives." All hype and rarely high quality due to the overburdening of pressing plants. Goldfrapp had NO idea this was even coming out (tellingly released through BMG) but thankfully were able to rectify the poor quality control with the Mute version. Oh, and if you're concerned about collecting a "limited edition" version that will rise in value over time - don't be. 4000 copies for a 15-year-old reissue by completely niche artist (in the US) on vinyl is a LOT, especially with an equivalent, higher quality version also on the market.

Excellent album and really nice white vinyl. Sound quality is really good and it doesn't skip.

Amazing quality. This is probably one of the best sounding albums that I own (not that I have a large collection). The white vinyl is also gorgeous in and of itself. So glad that one of my favorite albums turned out this good.

Thanks y'all for the comments here and on the other vinyl re-releases about the quality.
I waited and waited and now I am listening to a perfect copy (STUMM188X) and I am very happy!

At last... 2 copies I've tried of this european Mute release, both PERFECT.
After returning 3 terrible copies of the american RSD LPs (all were noisy as hell), This is the one to get!
