Could anyone comment on the audio quality for this pressing? Hopefully it's a bit better than the 1xLP represses...

Bought this brand new from a record store in 2018. Very quite pressing in case of volume. Side A is more quite compared to Side B. Sound is good overall. Good bass but you have to gain it up.

Bass is almost non-existent, mine came warped, and I bought it from a reputable source. Bad pressing.

Such an amazing album front to back. So chill, with an old-school feel with well thought lyrics.

Thanks to Jive Records this record has been available over the years. The original pressing has green labels and the DMM etchings in the runout groove section. Early copies have printed dust sleeves, late 90s pressings just came with a regular white inner sleeve, otherwise identical if I'm right.

If you can pick yourself up an original european issue then do. I have both the US and European 1sts and the double european is far better, although I think the original US is pretty good.

Any one on Discogs that can confirm that the original US LP really was released not only with green frame (black frame but green watches) but also has one version with red frame / red wacthes and different artist displayed, and one version with black frame / no greenish watches and different artists displayed. I know the CD release has different versions: green, red and black, but the red frame LP or black frame with no green watches LP version is not listed on Discogs - so has any one really seen those or have one any information?

Horrible pressing!!! I am listening to mine for the second time since owning it for a year.
Pops and clicks throughout. Sound is not dynamic and very flat.
An otherwise awesome album rendered almost useless... Getting rid of my copy in search of an original.

So I've never loved how much music they are cramming onto one disc for every reissue of this album that's been done, but I finally bit the bullet and gave this one a shot because I love this album, and you know what? Not bad at all. My only complaint is that the overall levels are low, but that's just a given with this much music on each side. No vocal distortion to speak of at all, and my copy has very little surface noise. I'm happy to recommend this version as a cheap play copy that works perfectly for a late night chill, where you weren't going to blast anything anyway.

Just bought this version from Rough Trade in Nottingham. It'll be my 3rd attempt at getting a decent copy of this record. haven't got it home yet to have a listen but i fore-warned the guy on the till that I might be back to have a refund as it's quite likely to sound like shit. These reviews aren't filling me with confidence. I'd have thought Rough Trade would have done a bit of research before buying shitty represses...

Why does so much golden era hip hop have such shoddy re-pressing. Took me years to get a decent Illmatic, 36 chambers and the infamous.
