Great pressing, but is not 180gm. Its actually around 150gm.

Is someone able to compare this with the original OLI UK pressing? They do not come from the same matrix or pressing company so I'm just wondering.

Very muddy vinyl, I believe the mastering or the cutting process of the album has gone utterly wrong for this LP. It lacks this sharpness of the instruments found on the album and it is low on treble and vocal instrumentation. This is one of her best albums to date and yet this version of the LP is bad. (I read that all of them are bad, which is a huge bummer)

So, how does it sound?
