We've gotten 2 copies back from customers from being noisy, out of the three we sold.

I think it sounds good overall, bass is a little too loud, and some songs can get a little too noisy. Sadly, my copy came a little off-centered on both discs. I believe this does not affect the sound on this case.

I would avoid this one. It looks nice, but there's a lot of surface noise especially at the beginning of each side and there seems to be a slight distortion throughout. My needle bounces side to side trying to play it. I plan to return this and get the standard black pressing

5 stars for the music, 1 star for yet another garbage pressing done by United. I gave up after 3 copies that arrived warped, scratched, and noisy. Bummer.

The vinyl is really quiet, but I wish more care would've been taken with the mastering, especially when it comes to Solange's vocals. If the sound they were going for was mid-range, pre-'80s production, they got it (and that's totally okay, punk vinyl records have that sound, and it's perfect for their stuff). The vocals and bass feel really compressed on a song like "Cranes in the Sky," where every element should really stand out and feel dynamic--like you can hear various parts floating in and out of the track. This is one of the greatest soul records of the 2010s, so I hope someday someone makes the effort to give it the vinyl mastering it deserves.

(I'm not just being stingy. Check out the Amazon reviews for the vinyl version of this album, and most are two to three stars or less. If you compare this version to the Spotify high quality streaming, that version also sounds much less compressed, and better than this purple vinyl pressing.)

I know this is a digital-era album, and we shouldn't expect too much, but if you compare the compressed sound of this album to a similar-era record like Janelle Monae's "Electric Lady," the differences are night and day. Someone could've taken the time at Colombia to make Solange's voice sound like she is singing right to you on the vinyl.

This album has everything - voice, arrangements, production, mastering, brilliant songs with real meaning. By modern day standards, especially in this genre, it stands out for dynamic range, no compression, no autotuning, this production would grace any era, a masterpiece.

Mine sounds fantastic on the purple wax. Not a single extra noise to be found.
