Kick-ass album; quality, intrigue, and variety aplenty. My copy has practically 0 defects or damage. Sounds excellent! Glad to see Plaid is still pumping out great ones

Beautiful release, artistically speaking. Unfortunately my copy has a bunch of scratches. It was factory sealed from Bleep. Pops and clicks in certain sections.

My copy has significant distortion in the left-hand channel. Wonder if any others are like this?

Amazing album.
One of their best... and that's high praise, as their releases are consistently great.

One little request, though. How about releasing the bonus tracks on the UK/US releases, and having the Japanese versions have 3 LESS tracks? Kinda tired of getting stiffed on the last several albums.
Maybe tongue-in-cheek, but at least make the bonus track(s) accessible with a download code included in the album.

Or release a compilation album of Japanese Bonus Tracks and download only versions...

As a hardcore fan of Plaid since “Mbuki Mvuki”, I’m incredibly impressed with this album. Dare I say this is their best album? I can’t remember the last time a Plaid release had such a strong effect upon the first few listens, but “Polymer” is arguably their best and most focused work yet. It has all the classic builds and quirkiness they’re known for, but it’s their most beat-heavy record they’ve ever done, and it sounds all the better for it.

I’m listening to the album for the third time as I write this, and my heart is warming at the thought of all the joy this band has brought me for the past nearly 30 years, and the fact they only get better.

Yes, Yes, Yes. My rude boys back again & ain't let me down. Gave it 4 stars at first but gonna change it to 5, cos i think i should allow them to get away with 2 so so tunes & Maru i just can't stop bussing.
Just a foot note for the boys, next time take a leaf from Barry White when he knew he got a bad riddim & went on like he don't wanna quit the vibe.
