  1. A terrific album and a fun one, there is even a track – Vertigo featuring Alex Turner. It sounds like it a very good mastering but sadly a terribly bad decision making for gold vinyl pressings — it’s dull, muffled and woolly although it’s quite a quiet pressing. I can’t imaging the other Marbled Gold edition sounds any better. Repress on black vinyl please…
