Sounds wonderful on my setup, no hissing, no pops, no surface noise, just a crystal clear pressing of a wonderfully produced and mixed album. (perfecto!)

I love this record. The volume is set a bit lower than the digital version and her vocals are pushed to the front of the finished mastering / but nevertheless a remarkable pressing!

There's a lot of light pops and little to no surface noise throughout the vinyl, but this pressing is way superior than her earlier represses - super dynamic and rich.

Really happy with my copy (even though I wish it was a gatefold with a booklet or ... See full review

My Copy has noise layered with the music, weirdly enough it adds something to the quality of the transcendental music this album holds. I absolutely adore this record.

Am I the only who got a decent pressing? mine sounds flawless, no skips, no clicks no pops... crystal clear and dynamic sound. I got it by preordering it on her website

Dynamic pressing, beautiful packaging, her vocals are so clear on this pressing. I've read that the US press is terrible in comparison to this... this sounds flawless on my turntable. So happy I grabbed the EU pressing instead of the US.

Sounds less dynamic than the black Polydor pressing, and at some tracks it sounds a bit compressed than the original master - yet it sound pretty awesome and decent at the same time. (and there's this 4 second passage of pops "in hope is a dangerous ... See full review

I never expected a GZ media pressing to be this mesmerizing... I'm shocked and extremely happy / this is one hell of dead quiet, dynamic and breathy LP. My copy is free from pops, clicks & surface noise.

Plus the packaging is just beautiful: thick ... See full review

There's some few silent clicks on several tracks (1 on each) - but they are barely listenable (in the quiet parts) - yet the mastering of this album is spot on perfect / I have never heard a Lana LP that sounds so sublime.

The pressing's sound is a bit low in terms of volume and it seems to be somewhat compressed and flat on some tracks.
posted a comment on James Blake - Assume Form. 11 months ago
I think it's all about the mastering, it doesn't matter if it is colored or the standard black vinyl. I have a lot of beautifully mastered colored records that sound phenomenal yet a lot of black ones that sound like crap.

My copy has one stain that cannot be removed, it's white and it's deeply imprinted in the grooves which makes it pop severely for 12 seconds on "Follow My Voice" / which is a bummer... other than that the record sounds really good

I haven't checked the sound quality on this record, but why did they take out "Timebomb" , "Come Into My World", "New York City", "Celebration" and other tracks... this could have been a 3 to 4 LPs compilation. Add some beautiful pictures and a booklet ... See full review

This is, without a doubt, one of the best releases of 2019: silky vocals, lush arrangements, nostalgic melodies.
I don't know if there are other vinyl variants but this sounds great on my turntable.
