My copy is flawless! Although not my favourite Gorillaz album, definitely one of the best sounding pressing I have of any album! Hugely recommend if you like it!

Its a collection of random mediocre songs taken from a collection of random mediocre unreleased albums jammed together under the facsimile of Gorillaz. This couldn't be any less of a Gorillaz album if they tried

Just got this today. Love the crisp, beautiful printing of Jamie Hewlett's art all throughout the gatefold cover and the printed inner sleeves.

As for the wax itself, first thing I noticed as soon as "Ascension" came blasting out the speakers is the vinyl is audibly mastered at an ever so slightly higher pitch than the CD, probably a 0.5-1% pitch difference. It's subtle enough not to be bothersome for most people, but it is definitely noticeable to my pitch-sensitive ear.

The sound, as you would expect from Gorillaz vinyl, is HOT and bass-heavy, and splitting the 49-minute album onto two discs is definitely beneficial in that respect - I always enjoy seeing wide and deep grooves on my vinyl.

The sound quality is very good and dancefloor-ready. Mind you, the mastering is pretty loud and compressed like the CD (although it does sound better than the CD likely because of the acoustic properties of the vinyl mastering), so some of the more densely-arranged sections don't sound as impactful as they ought to be, and overall the sound is definitely not as good as Gorillaz S/T on vinyl. Nice job by John Davies though - of course it's best when you turn it up LOUD! I'm pretty sure putting it on my Akai will bring out more detail especially in the high frequencies, and I will report on that later.

The Optimal-pressed vinyl is pristine and quiet - no traces of a noise floor in the quietest musical segments on the album, and the loud mastering only helps the cause. There is some low-frequency noise on the run-ins for all four sides, and the second disc has visible patches of non-fill, but none of these defects are bothersome and they aren't detrimental to the listening experience. It IS a very high-quality pressing - thank GOD neither of the records had any scratches straight out of the shrinkwrap, unlike two other Optimal pressings with printed inner sleeves I got recently that do.

EDIT: Another interesting thing to note - unlike typical EU vinyl (even the typical Optimal pressing!) neither of the 2 LPs here had any noticeable static charge from the first time I took them out of the printed inner sleeves. I think Optimal might be upping their act a bit...

The music itself is a bit disappointing but hopefully in time I'd appreciate this LP. Pressing & packaging are top notch!

all this lost wax that could have been used for a worlwide repress of Demon Days...

Disappointed by the record, probably the long hype period beforehand raised the bar too much. "We got the power" on D4 sounds very noisy.

Pretty uninspired album, and disappointed they couldn't put the extra tracks on here. In any case, pressing sounds great.
