It’s not the pressing, it’s the recording. The cd is also awful. Real shame. I want to like this record, but don’t play it because of the compressed sound.

The problem is not the LP pressing. I have both LP and CD versions and they sound the same garbage. The problem is mastering: insane levels of dynamic compression. These modern studio gurus passing a signal through 100 DSP tasks in a minute should be sent to jail (to be polite). The problem is that I wonder how a musician (in this case Michael Kiwanuka) can let the producer to do such a shame. Do they have two ears like me and the rest of the humans? ‎I suspect they listen to the final masters sitting in the car with their iphone while doing some other distracting activities, this is the only explanation I have.

Fantastic record and pressing. Not sure what a lot of these negative reviews are about. My copy is flat, centered, and quiet. No sibilance and the dynamics shine.

Is this the same pressing as the Yellow vinyl version which has so many problems?

I'm very disappointed with this release. I had heard "Hero" played live on The Graham Norton Show and grabbed the 2 LP version from my local store. Yikes! The "Hero" track I loved in that live performance, has a terrible opening, sounds like wow and flutter from a 1950s rim drive player. The rest of the album has a very bright sound balance, I'm struggling to get through all of it. That's on my second best system, but I doubt it will be better if I try it on my main system. At the same time I picked up an earlier album of his, "Home Again" for only €14.99, which is sonically a lot better.

This, in my opinion, was the best album released in 2019. Truly a shame that the vinyl pressings aren't of the same quality.

Got to add my voice to the chorus of disapproval on the pressing here. I'm just listening to my second copy - this time the black vinyl, after swapping the yellow for it - and while it's significantly better than the previous copy, there's crackle and distortion during passages of vocal all across both sides of the first disc. Not as bad as the yellow one, but inescapable and intrusive and a real pity. I only got my act together to return the yellow vinyl version today because I've loaned my CD copy to a friend and had to turn to the vinyl to hear it today, but I don't think I'm going to get through it. A huge pity, because the music and the production are absolutely first rate - one of the best albums of the century. There really is no excuse, particularly when the price for vinyl copies now is so high.
