April 2018 Vinyl Me, Please Review

The April album is a 180-gram vinyl featuring Arctic Monkey’s debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not.

Each delivery comes with a cocktail mix to accompany the music and a foreword from the Vinyl Me, Please team. This month features a new presentation – and I’m liking it much better!

It’s also accompanied by an LP-size piece of artwork. This month’s artwork comes from Ben Sellon.

Arctic Monkeys – Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not

This month’s selection is the 2006 debut LP from the English band, Arctic Monkeys. This album really blew up with I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor and the band has kept progressing from there.

It comes with a nice 16-page booklet with images and liner notes.

This is my favorite pressing from Vinyl Me, Please – the ‘smoke’ edition is just so cool looking, and makes a ton of sense with the art around this album.

I mean, how cool does the translucent pressing look?

Arctic Monkeys have never really been in my musical taste wheelhouse, and that didn’t change on this listen. They have really changed a bit as a band and I’ve liked their more recent stuff a bit more than this debut.

Little Simz EP

As a bonus item (this wasn’t mentioned in the advertising), we also received a vinyl single from Litle Simz.

It had a BMW ad packaged in – so it’s probably a little sponsored extra – but more music = win!

You’ll get 4 more songs to listen to, and I gotta say…I liked it more than the featured album! It’s completely different in terms of the genre with a nice laid back hip-hop vibe – the one similarity is that she is also a British artist – absolutely worth a spin!

Verdict: I had a feeling that this might be a miss for me, but I wanted to revisit it none-the-less. I never mind giving an album a second or third chance! I really enjoyed the bonus album and this was one of the best visually impressive pressings, so it wasn’t all in vain!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. The current selection can be found on the ‘Record of the Month’ landing page.
