I've already posted this in the "What vinyl are you listening to thread?", so apologies if you've already seen it there, but thought I'd add it to this thread also as it is as relevant.
Like many others, I've been listening to Random Access Memories by Daft Punk. Beautifully recorded, great pressing that has zero pops & clicks straight out of the sleeve, lovely packaging and most important of all, the music is just fantastic. I knew it was good as I'd listened to it several times on Spotify last week, but the vinyl release just sounds so good.
Vying for my vinyl release of the year so far with Pale Green Ghosts by John Grant.

Haven't bought much new vinyl recently, but was tempted to get the London Grammar "If You Wait".
Only released on 9th September and already favourites to win the Mercury Music Prize. So took a punt as was only £16.74 from amazon
Double 45rpm album with download voucher.
Great recording, no crackles etc.
Very pleasant, hauntingly clear vocals with some very bassy moments.
Steve Hackett - Genesis Revisited II
Zero pops & clicks straight from the sleeve. I wish all new vinyl sounded as good as this.
it's expensive, but it's a beautifully packaged four 180g LP plus two CD set. They even re sequenced the running order to best fit the vinyl.
