    Praise to Chris Bellman for his mastering job on this fabulous work. He should remaster all of her albums. Great tonality& balance.

      Amazing sound. It seems like Tori is right here next to you, vocals are soooo cool. Very immersive mastering. Digital version has no life in comparison with this.
      Some light clicks and pops here and there and whooshing background, noticeable between most tracks when the volume is turned up.

        And no voucher for digital copy. Can't say I'm disappointed, but it seems strange

          I've received my copy, both discs heavily warped. So pitty, cause otherwise extremely clean and noiseless copy. Also mastering phenomenal. But 7mm high warp times two is unacceptable. I need to claim it. Don't understand how can the producers of records waste som much energy and other's people time just for their internal incompetence and breaking the basic production process rules. Such a shame. This time shame on the Optimal again. Based on my 2021 claims, it's the worst pressing plant actually!

            There's a lot of light pops and constant surface noise throughout the vinyl, but the pressing is somehow rich and dynamic. (I wish it was a gatefold with a booklet or printed inner sleeves)

              Love the way this pressing sounds. The vocals shine at the forefront, open & natural sound stage, and the clarity of each piano note sounds just superb.

                o álbum é perfeito, só deveria ser capa dupla (gatefold - double cover), ia ser demais!!!

                  No questions that they threw the packaging together which is unfortunate.

                    For my copy, Side A, B and Con Stereo. Side D on Mono !!! it's normal ?

                      Gotta say I'm not a huge fan of the packaging, seems like two records squeezed into a flimsy cardboard sleeve.
