Pretty good sounding album. Some sibilance at spots but i'm sorta snobby when it comes to this. Also, this is one of my favorite albums. but it's super clean sounding otherwise. I thought i'd hate the pink record but it really makes it easy to see if I missed a spot on cleaning before playing.

I discovered Anderson .Paak via NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts. Along with The Free Nationals, Anderson gave one of the most entertaining performances I've ever watched. Immediately afterwards, I came to discogs and ordered this record. I am quite satisfied with my impulsive decision.

First off, the vinyl (as mentioned in previous reviews) is absolutely gorgeous. The gradient reminds me of a galaxy-themed bath bomb. It's stunning to watch spin.

As far as the sound goes, this pressing is what all pressings should aspire to be. No surface noise whatsoever, and a near-perfect mastering/mixing, allowing the listener to pick out individual instruments without it taking away from the overall experience.

Now for the record itself, the songs: This is some of the most innovative hip-hop I've ever heard. My one and only critique is the use of the word "nigga." That's simply personal preference, however. Despite this, Anderson Paak writes some of the most danceable hip-hop I've come across. His smooth vocals over those jazzy beats (often played without any effects on instruments) make for a fresh, upbeat sound that until now was missing from this style of hip hop. At times, you can literally hear Anderson Paak's infectious smile shining through his rapping/singing. It's truly beautiful.

I have not listened to the other pressings, but I would recommend this version simply because I know that it sounds positively amazing. Also, it's just cool to own such an awesome record that's limited to 300 copies.

this is the original US copy that differs from from the European pressing. You can tell which is the original US pressing from the print on the back cover. It says 2015 on the cover too, despite not hitting the shelves until 2016. The hype sticker is also placed on the bottom right on the front cover as opposed to the european pressing where it's higher up.

Something seems fishy about this release. To purchase this version, you would have either bought one in-store or online (TTL Site). I was ready to purchase mine and the TTL site said they were sold out. Hard to believe they sold all 500 within a couple mins. However I found a few sellers on ebay who have multiple copies for sale (one seller has up to 9 copies available). Seems like either TTL is holding on to them and selling them for a larger increase or they have partnered up with some other sellers to get the same result.........

Absolutely flawless pressing, not to mention the blue haze is just dead sexy in person. The sound quality is incredible on this one.. very flat mix (in a good way) with excellent dynamics and volume. Don't hesitate to spend a few more bucks on this handsome and incredible sounding record. If you aren't already familiar with this album or artist, I would highly recommend checking him out. This album is one of the best ones to come out in 2016, in my humble opinion.

Kuddos to @texasvinyl for the tip about cleaning the grit from haze pressings. They were 100% right, luckily it can easily be taken care of with a single cleaning. I use (and love) the RCA Discwasher kit that you can swoop from your local record store or Amazon for $11-15.

Pristine pressing, amazing sound quality but definitely not light green. More like a very dark, translucent shade of green. I love it, though.

Just got mine in the mail and it sounds great, but it has three bent corners. TTL has some pretty flimsy shipping boxes.
