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.

I don't know if it is a first pressing or what. I bought it new in 2013 in Maine for 14$. This is a perfect pressing for me. Plenty of dynamics. Big controlled fat bass with no distortion, hissing or sibilance. My tired Rega Carbon (conical stylus) do not reveals any defect and produce clean and large soundstage. One of the best 14$ invested in audio related equipment.

It's a pity really, I love the style, arrangements, pacing, feeling, swing, whatever... but I can't stand her voice.

Does anyone know what pressing of this is good? Have had a look through comments and most say that UK pressing is much better than the US, but then comments here are saying its tinny? Can anyone say how the represses sound?

Bought it brand new and still sealed today. Mine comes with no sticker. It's 180g and has same barcode and label.
Matrix is different :
Side A is 133278E1/A1 1734128-A
Side B is 133278E2/A2 1734128-B
I have added the variant.

Flat vinyl. Pretty good & silent pressing. Pleasure for the ears. First time I ear Amy Winehouse on vinyl. Great experience.

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...
