Very strange rekkid.
First time I played it I thought it was dire.
Second time I though David Bowie had come back to life such are the amount of Alex Turner Bowie'esque young Americans/station to station vocal outbursts.
Third time I thought it's actually ok.
Now I'm hooked on the fucker !
Very adventurous release.. No dancing tracks. No rock n roll.
But it's got something. Trouble is I don't know what the fuck it is !
I don't think there's a chorus on this album.
Listen twice before dismissing it.
Oh , and the vinyl production is absolutely glorious !

One of the best albums ever made !
The one that got under my skin and kicked off the madness for me nearly 40 years ago.

Does anyone own on of these that smells of perfume ?
This was bought on release and still smells , not unpleasantly of scent.
Can't find a listing or description anywhere of a perfumed cover.
So me a favour and give yours a sniff for me please. Let me know.

I have a copy of the Into The Groove 12" that smelled of perfume, I reckon it's because these records used to belong to... girls

Just read an old forum in which it said b that first pressings were treated with patchouli oil . Madge wanted it to remind people church incense.
Great fuzzy.

Just out of interest for SL peeps.
Found this on fakebay.
I've read the full details and I can't get the feeling from my head that I wouldn't risk it.
Not saying it is anything less than it says..but some bits just don't add up to my cynical suspicious mind.

Have a read...see if you pick out the bits that I did that might ring an alarm bell.

You're wrong, of course. About the singing, and about the score. 😉

Remember the Peter Tosh album with a cover sticker that when scratched gave off a scent of dope? I knew a girl who had one and said it smelt so awful that she had to scrape the sticker off and wash out the shelf where the album had stood.
