Just got round to hearing this and what a fine job they have done. Sounds absolutely incredible. Dynamic, tight, no surface noice. Would be better as a gate fold instead of single sleeve but other than that its faultless.

Yep, only two on mine also. Getting Matty to sign mine has now been added to the bucket list.

Sounds amazing. Punchy and dynamic with hardly any surface noise. Haven't heard an original pressing but I can't imagine it sounds any better. This blows the cd version away in terms of how it sounds. Great to hear this and to find it's a decent pressing. See full review

Looks great. Gatefold sleeve is lovely and thick. Nice touch with the 3D lenticular and sticker sheet and also the coloured vinyl. Sound is OK but not as punchy and dynamic as you would hope which is a massive let down. I agree with others that it is... See full review

How have people got this already? The vinyl isn't being released until end of October.

If this is limited to just 500, how comes three years after release it is still so widely available?

Maybe you have been unlucky. Mine sounds great with hardly any surface noise at all. Maybe try exchanging for another copy.

I bought a copy a while back and I couldn't agree more. Sounds great.

Sounds perfect to my ears. Clean, clear, crisp, dynamic. Incredible quality. Nice job on this. Can't fault it.

Hi just noticed another variant of this from Bear Tree Records has become available for pre order at Norman Records and it's limited to 300 copies. If you can't get hold of this then it's probably worth the preorder.

Nice quiet pressing. Surface noise almost non excistant. Nice sounding record over all. Bass is nice and tight. Sounds as vinyl should. Looks great too and with a poly lined inner sleeve. A lot of care and effort has gone into this release and I'm... See full review

Beautiful album. Very much like Pink Floyd's Meddle meets Dark Side of the Moon Meets Ray Lamontagne, and that can't be a bad thing. Very dreamy in places and great to chill out to. Not quite 5 stars for me but very close to it.

The mastering and... See full review

Not Foo Fighters best album but after a few listens it starts to sound quite good. I do feel however that this is Foo Fighters trying not to sound too much like themselves. For me personally this sounds like foo fighters trying to replicate the sounds... See full review

I have to say this reissue sounds amazing. Nice quiet pressing and the audio is very clear and punchy with all the dynamics you expect from vinyl. Can't fault it! Perfect!
posted a comment on Arcade Fire - Everything Now. over 3 years ago
If somebody had told me that Arcade Fire were releasing an album of mainly electro pop funky disco with a slight bit of reggae I would have been intrigued but probably would have decided to give it a miss. They actually do it rather well and although... See full review

I used to own the Music on Vinyl version of this record and I was never happy with the sound quality. Sounded like it was poorly mastered (flat and slugdy) a bit like I was listening to it under water if that makes sense. This reissue is really well... See full review

Mastered to perfection and pressed to the highest of standards. If you want to hear this album sounding as good as it gets then I couldn't recommend this version any higher. Thumbs up from me!
posted a comment on Oasis (2) - Definitely Maybe. over 3 years ago
Everything sounds flat and lifeless. Even the mastering on the downloads is far far too loud. The only good thing to say about this release is the inclusion of all the bonus material. Vinyl sounds awful though.

I was excited to play this on vinyl but this reissue is so bad I thought somebody had changed the settings on my hifi system. Sounds extremely bass heavy and everything sounds flat and lifeless. Even the mastering on the downloads is far far too loud.... See full review

I'm happy with this pressing. I think it's very well done, sounds incredibly good and the addition of the extra track is a nice touch too. Definitely worth adding to the collection.
posted a comment on Ben Howard (2) - Every Kingdom. over 3 years ago
Album is great. This vinyl release doesn't sound bad but it doesn't sound great either. I was expecting it to blow me away but it just sounds quite flat with hardly any dynamics. No distortion and the pressing is nice and quiet though. 😁

If you like this album then it is well worth getting on vinyl. I haven't got a bad word to say about the quality of the mastering, pressing or the packaging. Just 100% perfect and an example of how music should sound on vinyl.

Perfect pressing. Sounds rediculously good. Good job XL. Nice packaging too. If only this effort and attention to detail went into all vinyl releases.

I have the white vinyl and I don't have any issues with the sound at all. I think it's a great pressing. My only complaint is how tight the sleeve is which makes getting the vinyl in and out more difficult than most. An antistatic inner sleeves has... See full review

I agree with killbot754. My copy of this sounds amazing. I can't hear any faults in the pressing. Hardly any background noise and the mastering has been done to perfection.

I have rated the music and the album is great. However I find the audio quality of this pressing very bad. No dynamics at all and Adele's voice sounds very distant when compared to the CD version. Even the Mp3 sounds better to my ears.

This fantastic album is made to sound very average with this horrendously bad pressing. Far too much compression and there Quite a bit of surface noise. If I hadn't been so quick to get this I would have probably been better off getting the 2xLP... See full review

Truly wonderful pressing. No surface noise and you can hear every detail down to every squeak of Nick Drakes guitar strings.
