Did anyone else accidentally listen to track A1 (title track) on 45RPM, and it still sounds perfect and beautiful? I don't think I've ever encountered another song like this. When it got to A2 and it sounded like Roots Manuva had inhaled helium, I was all "whaaaat?" But I digress... This vinyl release and the music it contains are transcendent. Find it at the record store under "electronica" but, in reality it completely defies categorization. Probably CO's best effort to date.

I lucked out with a flawless copy. Have to agree with others, side a is a real step over the edge into presenting the record, Roots Manuva is superb, but the whole album just flows really really well, I'd say it's up there with their best and a welcome return after 7 years!
Further addition after a few months, each time I listen to this it just gets better and better, I'm now set on the fact that this is their best record yet and one of my favourites.

The King's Magician is only 3:06 but it's worth getting the Japanese edition for it, since it's a solid instrumental. I'm sure it will crop up later elsewhere, but I think the album would sound weird without it.

First off - the music is excellent I really enjoyed it. But the pressing is bang average. Sound quality is nothing mesmerising. But, what the hell is going on at pressing plants these days. I cant recall buying records during the 80s and 90s and having so many mild or heavy warp and dirt issues. This is just another fine release marred by poor quality handling and manufacturing processes. This is the 10th new record Ive bought this year and none have been perfect.

Unfortunately, my record also doesn´t sound good :( Side D sounds like, as it would be dirty or scratched all over. The content still great. But i will return it though, as it not a romantic vinyl crickeling anymore.

My copy sounds immaculate, thankfully. Silent and rich over all four sides. (Great album too...)

I picked up the 180G pressing, and mine sounds really good. Solid pressing and a beautiful album!

Musically its bit of a mixed feeling to me. The beginning is absolute breathtaking, and side A is an instant classic. But through the first few listen I might get bored over 4 pages. It might be a bit too much of the same. If the A&R would have cut it down to a 12'' with just 4-5 tracks, it would become an instant classic. But right now it just feels too much of the same.
Saying that, there are great moments, and especially side A is very emotional.
The pressing with the clear & white vinyl is great. No problems here. no dust in the sound..
