About the Artist
Leftism is the debut album by electronica musicians Leftfield, originally released in 1995. Their first major hit was 'Open Up', a collaboration with John Lydon. Their debut album Leftism blends dub, breakbeat and techno, with critics and fans labelling their sound 'UK-dub'. It was shortlisted for the 1995 Mercury Music Prize, but lost out to Portishead's Dummy. In a 1998 Q Magazine poll, readers voted it the 80th greatest album of all time, while in 2000 Q Magazine placed it at number 34 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever. Now available again on 180 grams high-quality double vinyl
Top Customer Reviews
It is a Gatefold with the centre opening out to reveal the track listing and artwork as seen in the CD insert. The back of the LP is printed with the picture of the metronome as seen in the CD insert. No other artwork is included, i.e. the headphones pic and what I assume is a pic of Neil Barnes and Paul Daley.
The track listing is as expected but Leftfield have included a pleasant surprise with 'Open Up'. It is an extended version with an extra two minutes of music bringing it to a whopping running time of 8:45, and most importantly this is not just poor quality filler material, it is a section of music which enhances the song and really brings it to life. Listening to the CD version now feels odd and incomplete.
The quality of the pressing is superb. I can't stress how fantastic this sounds on vinyl compared to CD. The dynamics are vibrant with rich tones and a thumping bass which just leaves the CD as sounding horribly flat and lifeless.
If you love Leftism I can highly recommend this vinyl pressing.
