I received my signed copy of this superb album from the Universal EU store-- shipped to CA. It was (of course!) totally under-packed and arrived bent, split, scuffed, and mangled with blown seams on the outer and both inner jackets. What a freaking disappointment. I wrote customer service about this and expect to be offered a refund AT BEST. What is it with the EU and SHITTY packaging of overseas shipments? If you're not going to do it right, which leads to very high rates of damaged shipments, why sell overseas at all Universal?

Mine has a noticeable bit of sibilance. Nothing terrible, but not quite up to some of the standards described below.

Apart from the musicianship that is subjective to each one, the mastering has a dark character of a bygone era that does not align with today’s standards.
Has an old fashioned theme to it, almost a vintage soul sound.
Haven’t made my mind yet if I like it... but is sipping in nicely so far.
It surely does not sound like a studio album of this era, and I am not sure if this intentional character is adding to the overall impression or it is a failure to reproduce a sound of another era.

Un excellent compositeur et musicien, une voix terrible qu'il module au gré des thèmes de ses chansons, un des meilleurs artiste actuel.

Two perfectly flat, silent, dynamic pieces of vinyl in a gorgeous gatefold with stunning music. Probably the best sounding and best packaged new record I’ve got in a long time!
