Top notch pressing. I've been hearing something new with every spin. The dynamics, channel seperation, and overall tone & timbre of this thing are breathtaking. When vinyl pressings get it right, they beat digital almost every time. This is one of those situations, so please, don't hesitate to scoop up a copy of this.

Purest sound , I’ve ever heard. Really great quality , clean sound, you can enjoy all layers of each song, lively and full record.

Great album from Bonobo, terrible quality control of pressing. Had to return 3 copies because of deep scratches on vinyl. Be cautious of copies that have the black sticker that says "Download Code Inside".

anyone else getting a static-like noise in the right channel? it's in and out on all four sides for me.

One of Bonobo's best albums by far.

After listening to Bonobo for quite some time, this release had to be a stunner to even compare to its predecessors. So when I first listened to 'The North Borders', I was disappointed. It lacked a coherency that his other albums, like Black Sands, had. However, this album requires multiple listens because a month went by and then this was on repeat for months. My personal standouts are First Fires, Jets, Know You, Ten Tigers, and Transits. It really grows.

"Heaven For The Sinner" & "Sapphire" are the only stand out tracks, IMO...the rest lacks originality of Simon. Deffo not even one 100th of Animal Magic...sorry

why the need to evolve when you're already doing great music (and original)???? bonobo, please reconsider!

I'm editing my review a year later because I just recently gained an appreciation for this album. I listened to the whole thing again (minus the first track which I still don't like) whilst driving down part of California Highway 1 along the Pacific. It made a great soundtrack for that experience and I really enjoyed it.

I like the album very much. It has a new genre to it in some tracks and hence the reason of a new album.
The album has a ''mature-eclectic sounding'' feel to it.
Also, tracks like ''First Fires'', ''Emkay'' and ''Sapphire'' brings a more hyped, ''mount kimbie-ish'' vibes, which usually I'm not big fan of, but bonobo makes a great job integrating his style making them sound amazing.
The track that really corresponds to my style is ''Antenna''.
Hats off bonobo for another wonderful album!
