    This is without a doubt John Grant's masterpiece. I love the first album - but the decision of going more electro on this one was courageous - showing us his true colors. Saw him live a few times while touring this record, and the shows where amazing.

      The pale green vinyl is a great etching. Bought April '21 from HMV UK as standard vinyl plus CD, so the colour was a 'bonus'. Amazing depth and character from the vinyl. Kicks the arse off the CD and I've got a Marantz cd6006uk, so that's impressive.

          Initial Rough Trade copies also had a free 4-track promo CD containing edited/extended tracks: 5 (5:39), 4 (5:30), 11 (7:51) and 7 (6:16) in that order. https://www.discogs.com/John-Grant-Strongroom-EP/release/4775410

            Kind of disappointed about the not too exciting ballads but the electro tracks are beautiful.

              Kind of disappointed about the cheesier Electro tracks but the ballads are beautiful as ever.
