Yet another victim of cutesy, impractical packaging. The inner sleeve is so tight and rough, it scratched the record to death. There's also the fact that the vinyl is very poorly mastered (as people have indicated below). This is one release to AVOID.

Imho this is a great album but as stated here, the quality of the vinyl is a disgrace. I guess the very soft sound and terrible pressing together results in an unplayable record. The mp3 download at least allows me to listen on my mp3 player but thats not the reason I payed 20 euros for the album! Although lots of vinyl pressings these days are not that good as they used to be, this is by far my worst vinyl experience ever!

Great album but it sounds like they didn't master for vinyl. Very quiet...I would avoid buying this on vinyl, but it is music worth checking out in other mediums.

This album is some of the exciting music I've heard in quite a while.
The sound on my copy is delightful, surface noise is only heard between tracks. My only problem is that the bass could be a bit heavier, thus making it more dynamic. Other than that, I really enjoy this beautiful record. The cover is pretty annoying though. Original, cool and aesthetic, but really not practical in any way.

Painfully dull. After about half-way through, you'll say, "OK, I get it. Where are we going to?" Women with pretty voices singing, dull as watching paint dry. pranzo_oltranzista's remarks are valid. Early Tricky is a better route if you're into this sort of thing.

Oddly enough, the two Japanese bonus tracks are more interesting than the whole of the album-proper.

The sound in this vinyl is SO SO low, my volume is on maximum level and I can barely hear anything
