The best-sounding vinyl in my collection along with Sweetener from Ariana Grande.

Unbelievable sound quality. A real pearl in muddy waters of modern "heavyweight collector blah" vinyl with pressings that crack, pop, warp whatever. Looks like mastering was done very carefully to articulate each possible sound: bass is thick, voice is crystal clear, every note is heard. Even inner sleeves are anti-static - thanks for the care. 45 rpm dead quiet breathing with life record, recommended.

Is this Netherlands version a 45 rpm or 33 rpm set?

WOW! I am so excited about how wonderful this pressing it!! It brings every song to life in a way that no CD or MP3 ever could. The sound is HUGE, especially the bass which is clear and booming but not overwhelming. Every range of the sonic spectrum comes across with unbelievable clarity. What a fantastic album from Janelle Monáe! Every song is a keeper. A++++

An extraordinary pressing! Every song is crisp and clear, and this pressing makes the case for why a properly mastered record should be pressed as 45rpm instead of 33rpm

This pressing sounds great! No issues whatsoever. Records came packaged in poly lined inner sleeves. Very nice artwork too. This is how new vinyl releases should be done.
