Once played and mine skips a lot on every side. Maybe it needs a cleaning. Then I'll try it again.

Great sounding pressing! I've got a bunch of colored vinyl and this is one of the coolest looking and best sounding. The vinyl is silver galaxy, it looks a bit like pooled liquid metal. I added a photo of my copy to this listing.

Hier der Nachfolger des "Check your head"-Albums, das musikalisch mit sehr harten, derben Raps und Musik in die gleiche Kerbe schlägt. Im ersten Song "Sure shot" stellen die drei MCs sich vor, wobei Ad Rock gleich eins klarstellt: "I´ve got more rhymes than I´ve got grey hairs". Der zweite Song "Tough guy", in dem es um den ehemaligen Basketballspieler Bill Laimbeer geht, hätte so auch von Punkveteranen wie Minor Threat oder den Dead Kennedys stammen können. Rap bzw. HipHop ist ein hartes Geschäft und "Putting songs together ain´t no puzzle like Yahtzee", erfahren wir in "B-Boys makin´ with the freak freak". Das Instrumentalstück "Bobo on the corner" dient dann erstmal zum Runterkommen, bevor der Song "Root down", der auch als Single ausgekoppelt wurde, die Rapmaschine wieder anspringen lässt. Das folgende "Sabotage" ist eines der bestens Songs der Beastie Boys und auch das Video, indem sie als Verbrecher gejagt werden ist sehenswert. In den Texten werden viele Vergleiche zu Berühmtheiten gezogen, die ich erstmal bei Wikipedia nachschauen musste, allen voran, bei der folgenden Textzeile in "Get it together": "Yes I´m getting funky and I´m shooting all my jism like John Holmes, the x-rated nigger". Dass sich die Musiker auch für die Erhaltung der Erde, genauso wie für die Freiheit Tibets einsetzen, kann man in "The update" hören. Das Instrumentalstück "Eugene´s lament" wartet dann mit jazzigen Momenten und einem Geigensolo auf. Immer wieder betonen Mike D, MCA und Ad Rock wie gut sie rappen bzw. reimen können: "Building rhymes like a Stonehenge druid" ("Do it") und "People looking at me like I was David Koresh" ("The scoop"). Hardcorepunk, allerdings mit ruhigen Passagen wird dann noch mal bei "Heart attack man" geliefert.
Diese drei weißen, kaputten Typen sind im HipHop einfach nicht mehr wegzudenken.

Great pressing. Very clean and quiet record with no pops of non-fill issues. Lovely and flat (no warping like others have complained about with other pressings). Sounds excellent, I quite like the new mastering, doesn't seem overly compressed or anything. Gatefold is beautifully done. This is the one to get if your after a new copy of this classic album.

I’m very pleased with this release. My copy is pristine. Flat as can be and very quiet between tracks. The mix is outstanding. Highly recommended. The silver vinyl looks cool too.

Great pressing but where is the french girl on the phone that was talking french bullish!t at the beginning of B-boys Making With the Freak Freak? It’s on my original 1994 CD but not on this pressing.

If you cannot afford the original pressing, this is the one to get. Great pressing, no pops and/or clicks like some people are reporting. Recommended.

Sides A, C and D seem to skip a LOT for some reason. Side B plays fine tho which is weird. It might be because its warped but then again it was a sealed copy before I opened it.

Also there seems to be a lot of fuzz that I can hear when playing the record so yeah, not impressed with my pressing. Oh and if it's worth mentioning my copy is an import soo yeah that might be a contributor to why its so bad.
