'Back to Black' is the second studio album by English recording artist Amy Winehouse, released October 4, 2006 on Island Records.

It incorporates 1960s soul music styles and modern R&B production, with subjective lyrics that concern relationships and reflect on Winehouse's experiences with drinking, sex, and drugs. The album produced several singles, including 'Rehab', 'You Know I'm No Good', 'Back to Black', 'Tears Dry on Their Own', and 'Love Is a Losing Game'.

'Back to Black' received positive reviews from most music critics, earning praise for its classicist soul influences, Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson's production, and Winehouse's songwriting and emotive singing style. At the 50th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, 'Back to Black' won five awards, tying the record (with Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Beyoncé Knowles, Norah Jones, and Alison Krauss) for the second-most awards won by a female artist in a single ceremony. The album won Best Pop Vocal Album, while 'Rehab' won Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Song of the Year and Record of the Year with Amy Winehouse winning Best New Artist. The album was also nominated for Album of the Year. To date, 'Back to Black' has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

In 2004 Amy Winehouse scored Platinum with her jazzy debut Frank. Her powerful voice that cracks in concrete can bring, it turned out wonderfully well to combine with subtle compositions. After two years of worldwide to have occurred with the repertoire of Frank had they had enough of jazz. For the much needed inspiration for Back To Black they listened a lot to girls groups from the 1950s and 1960s. Especially The Supremes and the work of producer Phil Spector had her preference. Once again she drew for her own production Salaam Remi, but also Mark Ronson, the man behind the success of Robbie Williams and Christina Aguilera. The three of them do they know the sound of the fifties and sixties perfectly with a modern twist. Also the short playing time of tracks from the time is being maintained, because Winehouse knows her repertoire of ten songs in a tight turning 33 minutes.

Amazing voice indeed and to me Amy Winehouse is already a legend, but I got the feeling she will be worshiped even more in 20 or 30 years... I also can recommend everyone to read Amy, My daughter, if you haven't already.

Unfortunately, this pressing sounds just as muddy and bad as the original 2007 GZ version.

Both discs sound really good to my ears. Much nicer than the CD versions. The packaging is also quality BUT don't go expecting much from the download. I purchased in December only to find that the DL wasn't ready. Checked again today and it's there but a 128bit MP3 of the first disc only! If you're buying with the hope of getting high quality MP3s then think again...

This is an improvement on the original U.K./Euro release. It sounds quite different and the Half-Speed mastering makes a considerable difference. The bonus disc is particularly good in terms of sound quality. Both records are flat / 'no warp.' The sleeves are good quality. The vinyl had no paper scuffs and was clean (although I wet clean new records and give them new poly/paper inner sleeves)
Overall this is the definitive vinyl edition so far, in terms of sound quality.

'Frank' would benefit from the same half-speed mastering at Abbey Road.

same here, terrible treble and just a bad pressing, there is a new remastered at abbey roads, will order that one instead and see if its better. Otherwise if you want to hear a good pressing of Amy Winehouse check out https://www.discogs.com/Amy-Winehouse-Lioness-Hidden-Treasures/release/3262495 , Wake Up Alone (Original Recording) is amazing!

Anyone able to comment on the quality of this remaster?

Some good info here: http://www.udiscovermusic.com/halfspeed .... it's a digital remaster. Was it recorded digitally? (I think it was).

173 412 Universal - brandnew unpacked and an overall noise carpet as if there's sticky dirt in the groves. Nothing visible by eye... washed 3 or 4 times - no change. Will try discofilm once - but I really hate this. Have Diana Krall that has visible "something" spilled over, no chance to wash it, restist. sounds similar like this one.
