This is a beautiful UK Epic Original with wonderful sound, dramatically better than the domestic copies I've played. It's rich, punchy, and very clear -- all elements that really take this music to the next level. The vinyl plays dead quiet. This is a perfect example of an album that didn't mean a ton to me until I heard it sound incredible, and now I feel like I get it. "Smooth Operator" and "Cherry Pie" both sound really powerful here.
4 1/2 stars Allmusic: "Rhythms that sensitively ripple and pulse at their most active, topped with deceptively cool vocals from Sade Adu"
Vinyl: EX (super clean)
Cover: VG+ (light wear to corners and edges_
Play notes: A killer copy: excellent sound and very quiet vinyl
