Bobby Cannavale as Richie Finestra, the founder and president of a top-tier record label (American Century Records) with a great ear for discovering talent, who undergoes a crisis of character when confronted with a life-altering decision.

Olivia Wilde as Devon Finestra, Richie’s wife, a former actress/model who lived a Bohemian life in 1960s New York. Richie’s crisis causes strain on their family and propels her to re-immerse in her former lifestyle.

Ray Romano as Zak Yankovich, one of Richie’s partners, the tough and savvy Head of Promotions of American Century with decades of experience dating back to the dark, mob-infested days of the recording business.

Juno Temple as Jamie Vine, an ambitious assistant in the A&R Department of American Century. She uses her keen abilities to manipulate people and blend into the various subcultures of the New York music underground in order to break through the glass ceiling and get ahead at the record label.

Ato Essandoh as Lester Grimes, a former singer and ex-colleague of Richie Finestra.

Jack Quaid as Clark Morelle, a young A&R executive at American Century who struggles for a foothold in the competitive environment of the A&R team.

P.J. Byrne as Scott Levitt, Head of Legal for American Century Records.

Robert Funaro as Tony Del Greco, chief enforcer for a New York mob boss.

Joe Caniano as Leo, Richie’s longtime chauffeur and confidante.

Reviews - 71% on metacritic - http://www.metacritic.com/tv/vinyl

New York Magazine - A

The pilot for the musical drama Vinyl is one of Martin Scorsese’s best films, an explosion of amplifier feedback, nose candy, wide-lapeled shirts, and borderline chaos; the next four episodes are almost as good, and on the basis of the first half-season, it already feels like the first new must-see series of 2016.

http://www.vulture.com/2016/02/tv-revie ... vinyl.html

New York Daily News - 4.5 out of 5

This is a gritty, bloody knuckled rock ‘n' roll fairy tale as told by the best in the business. There’s little chance that Vinyl will either burn out or fade away.

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainmen ... -1.2524739

San Jose Mercury News - 3.5 out of 4

Vinyl, after all, is at its best--and most interesting--when it sticks to the music industry with its oddball characters, egos and hedonistic ways.

http://www.mercurynews.com/entertainmen ... 970s-music

San Francisco Chronicle - A
Big, noisy and crazy brilliant HBO series.... The performances are masterful on every level, beginning with Cannavale’s Richie Finestra, who is only occasionally capable of keeping his inner turmoil of rage, ambition and fear of failure from exploding to the surface. With his performance, Cannavale vaults to the top of the list of Emmy candidates.

http://www.sfchronicle.com/tv/article/V ... 818385.php

The Hollywood Reporter - 80%

Vinyl works best when it laser-focuses on the nature of the very particular communal passions that fuel the industry, often revealed through Richie, Zak and Skip's characters.... Where the series does sometimes get a little sluggish is in the non-music-focused stories.

New York Post - 3 out of 4

“Vinyl” will leave you dancing to the music, but may leave you wondering why you should care.

http://nypost.com/2016/02/09/vinyl-spin ... sic-scene/

Variety - 70%

It’s plenty interesting stuff, including the various creative forces at play in the era, as well as its seamier aspects. Yet even with the benefit of a two-hour launch, the premiere unfolds in a manner that can feel as scattered and undisciplined as the headlining acts--not just in its bouncing chronology, but the extended, dreamlike sequences that seek to convey.

http://variety.com/2016/tv/reviews/viny ... 201697678/

Slate - 60%

Vinyl is made in the spirit of a great party, rather than a great TV show.... Not so dissimilarly from Boardwalk Empire, it has prestige everything--sets, talent, camera work, visuals--but an ersatz essence. The Scorsese hallmarks are thick as the rails.

Can't wait. I'm sure it'll grow better as it goes along, just like Boardwalk did.
