Sounds good. This is a solid pressing. 10 words or more.

Sound wise, this version is awesome. King of a battle though with ATCQ 2nd and 3rd album on wax. They deserve a better treatment like gatefold and picture inner sleeve. GO for this colour label version, the only that sounds great on vinyl with the best quality artwork like evertonis previously mentioned.

My copy is pitted in many places. Sounds OK, not perfect. Kind of ridiculous that you have no idea what pressing you bought until you open it.

Buy this version, bubbles on the Record Surface and in some areas rough surface too. No quality control like before. Just terrible. buy 5 different albums, 4 albums have the same problems from Jive. Very disappointed.

This OG 1991 version is two tracks shorter than the re-issues from 1996 and onwards. Both ”Vibes and Stuff” and ”Skypager” is missing. The later was luckily included on the Check The Rhime 12.

After listening to a recent reissue, an original '96 B&W label, and this colour label version, the colour label easily bests all of them. Very dynamic mastering considering the recording's original fidelity, very quiet vinyl (Keep in mind that a lot of "surface noise" is coming from those samples) and minimal sibilance (Which both other pressings had issues with)

This is definitely the one to get! The artwork is also at its sharpest on this pressing.

Just bought this copy at a record store in Delft - Holland. It was sold to me as a pricey import record so I paid € 40,-. Everything matches this description but the Matrix/Runout has a number added after the A,B and D indicators.

Anyone familiar with this version?
