My copy is clean and silent. It sounds perfect. A very satisfactory listening for a wonderful album.

I do not have the same issues as the other reviewers have. Mine played flawlessly. Perhaps it is their setup? I'm on a AT-LP120x and AT-VM95ML cartridge (upgraded from the stock AT-VM95E).

Beautiful album, but this press has some problems. Ulla on Side A has multiple needle-jumping skips that render the track listenable. Was excited to add this to my collection, but will be looking to sell this one and hope for a better re-issue later. Disappointing.

When this fantastic album, 'Tales of Us' was released in September of 2013 I purchased it on CD. A few years later I moved and could only take a few things with me. This album made it of course. Now in 2019 I decided to purchase 'Tales of Us' on vinyl. I find that recently the record player gets more use since Cd's have been slowly fazed out from homes, cars, and personal spaces. There has been a lot of warnings about quality of vinyl pressings with few places offering an honest review. Rest assured fans of Goldfrapp as this is an excellent pressing. The second the needle hit the record the sound enveloped the room. It was a gorgeous experience. Since 'Tales of Us' is an intimate recording it is important that the quality of the vinyl is top notch just like this. It is a must have experience on vinyl for any Goldfrapp fan. The gatefold sleeve is thick and printed in high quality ink. The poster is an image I hadn't seen during this era of Goldfrapp which was a nice surprise. My copy didn't come with a CD but it did include a download code on the sleeve near the credits. Overall it is a treasure to behold. A+++

So, I just received a copy of this, sealed and beautiful. Opened it up and ran a velvet brush over it to remove the factor particulates. All normal procedure. Played amazing! THEN... hit the last track on Side 1, "Alvar". 2/3 of the way through the song it hits a looping skip. Pulled it off, brushed and wiped with a microfiber and record cleaner solution. Same outcome. So disappointed! I am now working out details for a return. I have read on Discogs that the US pressing is much better. Ironic, huh. Oh well.

Mine also came without a CD. Do the CD-containing copies really have this catalog-numbers? Or the barcode? Is there a sticker etc. which indicates the CD?

I saw mention that the poster included in the vinyl edition within the box is different from the (EU) vinyl edition released separately. I see the separate release sometimes has a hype sticker, but, otherwise, Is this the case? Also is the EAN/UPC and/or catalogue number different?

TALES OF US sees Goldfrapp operating between the stripped down folk of SEVENTH TREE and the moody electronics of FELT MOUNTAIN. Building each track as a narrative around a name, this album sees the band engaging in poetic storytelling, from the delicate “Jo” to the quiet exploration of gender identity on “Annabel.” The folksiness blossoms fullest at the start of “Drew,” bolstered by thick strums of double bass, before it culminates in an orchestral fantasia. The general atmosphere of the album leans definitely towards the contemplative, though “Thea” brings in the refracted electronics and plodding percussion. But the acoustic guitar returns for the melancholy “Simone” and the lo-fi echoes and whistles of “Stranger.” The cinematics of “Laurel” evoke a foggy parting between two lovers, while the strumming of “Clay” ends the album on a hopeful note. Gorgeous.
