This is one of the best albums of the last few years. There's a lot of people trying to make new soul music and some of it sounds very contrived, this just sounds natural, effortless and fresh. A great balance of future and classic sounds and those ... See full review

This record seems to have had a repress in 2019 as there were no copies available until recently, when they did turn up they were expensive, now there's lots and they're quite cheap. Can someone verify this and maybe submit the repress as a seperate ... See full review

yes, it's annoying, some loud crackles and pops on it.

more low quality vinyl with clicks and crackle all over it. A real shame as the sound quality is good otherwise and the music is incredible.

This is a new 7" so does anyone know why it's so crackly? Were the tracks recorded from old vinyl? Also the labels are quite a pale yellow. Anyway, nice to have on a 7" with an instrumental despite the crackle.

A-Side (vocal) sounds OK, but the instrumental is very crackly. It sounds as if they recorded it from a crackly old 12". Very shoddy. There are copies that exist in a custom made 7" sleeve. there are 2 variations of the sleeve one black and white like ... See full review

check the instrumental, all copies are crackly as they recorded it from a crackly old 12"!!!

the black vinyl is now listed separately and it also comes in a plain card sleeve, not custom painted like this clear vinyl pressing.

what's happened here is a lot of people have bought it from rough trade for £22 or off ebay for £19 (yes, £19 with postage!) and are selling it on here for doubl and it's not even in the shops yet. Very strange, I'm sure there must be a lot of copies ... See full review

What's happened to the music? Janelle used to have such a great band backing her, this is just horrendous. I was a big fan of her previous albums and saw her live twice, but I find this unlistenable.

you're not actually supposed to play new vinyl, it's supposed to remain sealed on a shelf for a few months then sold for triple the price on discogs...(I'm being sarcastic of course)

the 2017 repress is listed separately. First vinyl black pressing is heavier vinyl than subsequent pressings.

repress copies are on thinner (less heavy) vinyl than the initial black vinyl pressing.

is 'funky resurgence' supposed to sound crackly and wobbly? Is that an effect they were going for or is it a bad pressing?!

first black vinyl pressing is heavier weight vinyl than the subsequent pressings although the latest pressing (?third black vinyl pressing) doesn't seem to have the noise (pressing fault) that the earlier pressings have. I think each repress should be ... See full review

Just listening to this vinyl, the pressing is rubbish, it sounds like they pressed it straight off an MP3, totally lacking in sound quality. Very dissapointing as the tracks themselves are great.

my mp3's downloaded from amazon sound poor quality, I'm hoping the CD and vinyl is going to sound better!

Good pressing, nice printed inner, main sleeve is a little blurry on the front compared to the UK pressing, but nice artwork on the back. A great version of this LP for the collection.
