I have ordered two copies now and record 2 in both items have been extremely warped like 0,5cm up and down several times around the 360 degrees of a round. I’ll try a third time for better luck. Hopefully that will do it. I’ll come back with info. Good record overall otherwise so its a pity with warpage which seems a bit too common these days…

Wow. This is a perfect piece of art, from the exquisite packaging and attention to detail, to the cover/booklet art/layout, and finally the musical production, which is a solid cut above.

I'm new to DA but really digging the chill vibe and presence of acoustic drums, strings, actual guitars, horns, and fun layered vocals. I catch a Prince vibe, which is a compliment. DA is multi talented, as most of this is played by him. That nylon guitar on "Really Love", whoa.

The pressing is outstanding, one of the best if not THE best in my collection.

Wow, so impressed.

Pressing is of high quality. The album in itself, music and physical lp, is a piece of art!

Recommendation for this: turn up the volume 6 points, it sounds lower than any other vinyl. Turn down the bass a little bit to appreciate the details, bass should be at 0-1, it is recorded analogic. Then you will enjoy, this is supposed to sound raw.
Is a masterpiece

Anyone know where I can get a lossless digital copy of the 2nd CD? WAV/AIFF preferred, but will take FLAC/ALAC.

My pressing sound muddy like MP3 vinyl in the swamp. Much better streamed.

A great album, but a few tracks seem a little over-produced, like there is just a little too much going on in the background, and it takes away from the amazing vocals. Voodoo is still his best album, but it's nice just to have a new D'Angelo album after all these years.
