Is the bass meant to be so exaggerated on this release?

My copy has a slight warp on the 2nd LP, but the sound is incredible. I have no reason to take it back, a must own in my opinion.

EDIT: This is supposed to be referencing the US/Canada 2xLP release, not sure why it's referencing the CD.

Dear contributors and administrators for Black Messiah personnel,
The credit for the spoken word is incorrect. The spoken word artist is Gina Figueroa not Gina Loring. Please make the necessary correction. Gina Figueroa is an ASCAP performer and her publishing company is Cocolita's Music.
Sincerely, Gina Figueroa
