Bent Just Enough To Matter
Reviewed in the United States on May 15, 2019
I was so excited to receive this album, as it is my all time favorite.
My first surprise is that "I Found A Boy" the final song as I know the album is not on the vinyl version. This was my first disappointment.
Then I opened the plastic, placed the vinyl on my record player and it starts wobbling. Her voice is high pitched, and I was like WHAT IS HAPPENING?!
So I take out the first vinyl I can grab.. a Jack Johnson album place it on the player, it plays perfectly. There is no wobbling, no sound distortion. I hold up Adele's album and its just barely rounded up in the edges, it even looks a little used to me, there are scratches. The quality is just not there. At this point I have felt the quality of my Jack Johnson record and this Adele record side by side and they are just not even close, with JJ being far superior.
At this point, how would I even go about returning it.. I've thrown away the packaging. It just doesn't seem worth the hassle. I don't know that I will order vinyls on Amazon again. I've been lucky other times, but with how hard it is to return it if the quality isn't there, I have to question if it's worth it when I could just go to FYE or a local shop.
(I will see if I can get a good photo of the bend, but its barely bent....maybe I could show a video of it wobbling on my player)
