Notes:
'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.

My copy also has the sticker "Britain's best female artist Brit Awards 2007 Includes the singles Rehab, You No I'm No Good, Back To Black and Tears Dry On Their Own 173 412 8" as shown on http://www.discogs.com/Amy-Winehouse-Back-To-Black/release/7264443 (but the record itself has these matrixnumbers). Bought new (somewhere back in time, 2007 I think).

I just had a listen to a couple tracks and agree with the comments below, this is a bad pressing and sounds really off; it sounds tinny. Fairly dirty when I opened it...lots of pops and creaks for a brand new vinyl. Going to have to buy another pressing I guess...

I got my new copy and it got the same number as this release but it came without the sticker. It was a bad surprise to see the new vinyl was really really dirty. But after I washed it, the sound quality is okay but not good.

scratch what I wrote before - this is terrible. The first track played not too badly but then I noticed how warped it was - the needle JUST stays in the grooves and a deep rasping sound every rotation from the warping. Avoid this pressing at all costs. And from that I can tell, it is not 180 - I'll be returning this asap - god knows how it got past QC

half agree with moonwave - it's not 'terrible' but it certainly doesn't come to life like you'd like it to. Listening to this version reminds me of listening to the CD in my car. It's fine but I feel like I'll end up by another, hopefully better, version in the future.

Not sure if the version with the left-side parental advistory sticker is a repress. I think that might be the original. The above version with the small parental advisory sticker on the right is still in print.
