This release does have a slight sibilance as reported by others however it is very listenable.
The issue is the state of the records from new, caked in debris and required a proper cleaning.

This one was a big surprise to me. The presentation here is not great. The shrink wrap creased my jacket in a few places, its a 2xLP without a gatefold which always feels very uncomfortable to me, and comes with basic paper sleeves. All that said, this record sounds great. Dead silent pressing with a very present low end (I should hope so...), and god damn do the vocals come through great on this record.

I’ve got the 2016 copy and it sounds great, no problems whatsoever. It did come with an extra side A/B though for some reason

Sounds great! Picked it up at my local store. Great album but a little disappointing that it just comes with paper sleeves 😕. 9.5/10 for me 👌

Love the photo of Tribe on the inner sleeve. Had it framed in my room for a while as a teen, great memories :)

Ordered from HHV and received this version. I m very happy with it, I think it sounds great. Artwork seems blown up though? Especially credits on back

Good pressing. Volume is a little low but has good dynamics once turned up a bit. Minimal surface noise after cleaning. Classic hip hop album and a must own.
