That’s true, but the volume isn’t the only noticeable difference. The 2006 pressing is much more dynamic, higher highs, lower lows, vocals are punchier, etc. It’s also dead silent with no noise or crackling. The UO pressing isn’t bad at all but on my ... See full review

This is the indie exclusive pressing, I was told 1,000 copies by the manager at Amoeba Music but take that with a grain of salt.

Sounds surprisingly excellent for a boot, full and dynamic. And it’s great to have the extra four deluxe tracks that weren’t on the original vinyl pressing. Worth seeking out for Toni fans.

Are Runaway Horses and Real actually on silver and white vinyl, respectively, or is that a misprint and they’re green and clear, same as the separate color reissues? Unless this is an early mock-up that was later changed, it’s strange to me that Heaven ... See full review

Agreed - sounds much better, with very little surface noise. My black copy was so noisy, I ended up giving it away.

Great collection of tunes, abysmal pressing. There’s simply too many songs on each side for this to sound even halfway decent - it needed to be a 2LP set. I’ve never heard Upside Down sound so limp and neutered in my life - I didn’t know it was ... See full review

Beware the fact that many copies of this pressing were mistakenly packed with sides A/B twice, no sides C/D. My brand new copy arrived like this, the seller had another, checked it and found it was the same with that one too. If you’re buying this here, ... See full review

Confirmed to be on violet colored vinyl. I was told this would never receive a reissue, so very pleasantly surprised to see it appear on this year’s list!
posted a comment on Changing Faces - All Day, All Night. 3 months ago
The majority of this album is forgettable, middling R&B (there’s thousands of acts that do this sound better), but their cover of Time After Time is a true stunner. Worth the price of admission for that track alone.
posted a comment on Rhianna - Get On. 3 months ago
A severely underrated album, entirely self-funded and produced, from pop music’s other, much less famous yet equally talented Rhianna. Get On is such a hidden gem, similar in soundscape to someone like Corinne Bailey Rae or early Nelly Furtado, ranging ... See full review

Superb pressing, sounds official (it’s not, but may as well be). My copy has zero surface noise/clicks/pops - crystal clear with deep bass and shimmering vocals. Such a pleasant surprise when a boot sounds this great. Until there’s an official vinyl ... See full review

I see there are mixed reviews for this clear pressing but my copy sounds fantastic. Like another user said - it’s not audiophile grade, but there’s almost no surface noise/static/pops etc. And that’s pre-cleaning, right out of the sleeve. Very ... See full review

No vinyl release for this Sia-penned soundtrack? Wrapped Up is an absolute stunner, and while admittedly the rest of the tracks are the kind of trashy throwaway radio fodder the film seemed to be parodying, the melodies lodge themselves in your brain and ... See full review

An appalling sounding record, like a radio rip recorded to tape recorded to vinyl. So tinny, muffled and distorted that you can barely make out the lyrics. Don’t Hold Your Breath isn’t even Nicole singing, it’s a demo version performed by a session ... See full review

Memory of You slaps on vinyl. It’s not often the B-side is better than the (still very good) A-side. Worth the exorbitant resale prices for that track alone - a shimmery, glittery slice of electro pop heaven.

Fantastic body of work - this is perhaps Dawn’s most accessible and instant album, and I say that as a huge fan of her more experimental records. The production is lush and quite a few of these tracks wouldn’t sound out of place on ANTI or Ctrl.
