Terrible sound quality, terrible mastering (sounds like they used the crushed digital master for the vinyl cut), and terrible pressing. No visible problems but audible distortion in many places, especially where it gets loud. Virgin vinyl bought new in France when it first came out. Played on high end system with ATC speakers in a mastering room. And no, I'm not talking about the US press but the EU press. Definitely not recommended.

EU pressing white vinyl disc is awful. 3 copies so far and dreadful hiss across both sides. Side C is worse.

The LP color scheme matched the wig on the cover.

People reading these comments should be aware that the ones complaining about the quality of the pressing might be referring to the U.S. version, which was pressed by United Record Pressing, a notoriously awful pressing company. This listing (the one you are viewing right now) was originally identified as the U.S. version, then someone changed the listing to include both U.S. and European versions. The two versions are now split into separate listings, and this listing is limited to the European version.

I'm not sure what everyone's problem is with the pressing. Mine has no visible or audible abrasions. It sounds great! The only issue I had was the second record's (white vinyl, sides C/D) center hole was a little tight. After putting it on once or twice, however, it fixed itself.

As far as the album itself goes, this is a solid record. Sia is, in my opinion, one of the VERY few artists out there who use electronic music as their backup and still sound good. Granted, her AOL Sessions and her acoustic stuff is much better, but I digress. She is an incredible songwriter, of that there is no doubt. Her words are passionate and from the heart, and her voice lends a haunting quality to many of the words, while her ability to switch between tempo and pitch makes for some very entertaining singing. As I mentioned before, I would prefer if she would make music without all the synth-pop sounding shit, but she makes up for it with her absolutely gorgeous vocals and moving lyrics.
Recommended.

Sound quality imo is great, you can tell that this mix was expertly mastered... however the pressing is bad like others have said. Records came with small abrasions even though it was brand new and both records have tons of surface noise.

i have the album on vinyl and the sound quality isnt terrible. alot of compression. The records are pressed slightly off center, doesnt affect playability They dont appear to be warped. The edges are very rough though. Im certainly not impressed by the quality of the pressing. And besides that the album could have fit on one lp rather than three songs on each side. the records remind me alot of rcheap dj 12" singles.

My copy has a pretty good sound quality but the pressing is poor. Vinyls have visible marks and hearable scratches.

The album comes with two records that match the hair colors on the cover (black and white) and poster, which is very cool. Unfortunately, the sound quality is very poor, only side D has a decent quality. My copy of the second record (white) doesn't have the hole in the center, so the record moves a lot and skips. The gate fold comes with all the lyrics. Such a good album, but such a bad pressing.
