Side 1 skips a lot sadly because of the marbling, thinking about you and sweet life suffer from it... but it might be because of my copy

11 June 2019 "Nile Rodgers presses Ocean on when his 2012 album Channel Orange is coming out on vinyl — a question that’s bothered fans for years — and Ocean simply says “ASAP.”"

Bar none the best sounding vinyl pressing of Channel Orange available. Serious punch, impeccable clarity, zero surface noise and a huge open sound field... you'll have a hard time finding any other bootleg that sounds this good period. I’ve heard them all and most have tons of noise, weak bass, clicks, pops etc. Until there’s an official release (if ever), this is the one to get.

I can’t speak for everyone else, and perhaps I just got lucky, but my copy of this pressing sounds surprisingly great? I was expecting the worst after reading all the reviews and was floored when this ended up sounding so good, almost like an official release. The only flaw I can detect is a very low grade, occasional crackling when played at very high volumes.

Overall, color me impressed. I own the official pressing of Blond and this sounds almost as nice. My copy is solid orange, not translucent like the photo - perhaps this also has something to do with it?

Very wonderful, beautiful album. Plenty of songs on here for you to enjoy. Deserves the grammy it won. ISSUES: The huge sticker on the front is annoying, as its a cardboard cd sleeve so when you try to take the sticker off it rips it.

My copy sounds pretty good for a bootleg. 1st vinyl is translucent with pink streaks scattered about the record; 2nd vinyl is a deep pink color.

Is Australasia a real place or is that a typo

Surprised at how good this sounds! I got mine used so I'm not sure if the static is just from use but other than that I find the pressing quality great. Well balanced, no hissing, great dynamics.

Got two copies of the third pressing on clear vinyl. Both skipped a few times on Lost. Also a super irritating high pitched squeaking throughout the Intro.
Love the album, don't recommend this pressing.

Was their ever an official release, or is it just bootlegs
