Great piece of music history with some great sleeve art to show for it. Won the Guinness world record for being the first album to be made entirely from sampling. Very influential piece of nostalgia for instrumental hip hop.

My copy has coloured labels and comes out with a green sticker. It sounds very nice.

Album is great, pressing is horrible. There's something like dried glue on the edges of my copy.

Sounds great to me, bass response ie excellent. Vinyl is also dead quiet and both discs are flat as pancakes.

This album is a landmark: Guinness World Records cites DJ Shadow's 1996 album Endtroducing as the first created entirely from samples.

Essentially a repressing of the Endtroducing... remastered discs included in the 20th Anniversary Endtrospective Edition, which by all accounts was the definitive version of the album.

- Excellent pressing by Optimal. quiet and clean wax. I don't think it is mentioned specifically but these discs are a solid 180g
- If you're going to cut electronic/IDM/trip-hop for vinyl, you absolutely want Barry Grint cutting the lacquers
- Despite some speculation about the Universal fire, according to Josh himself the original sources were not lost. This cut is from the original masters (unlike the 2011 Back To Black which uses secondary digital)
- It's cut lower than the original 96 pressing (Rick Essig cut), and about equal to the 2002. But there is no apparent surface noise here so the volume isn't a negative factor for this release. But the choice was made here for good reason...
- The sequencing here is clutch and the defining aspect of this release. By moving Changeling to A4 and ending Side A with Transmission 1, each side except Side C ends with a Transmission. Previously Transmission 1 was in the middle of Side B and Transmission 2 started Side C. This is why the album had to be cut at a lower volume, but the results are very rewarding. After hearing this it's hard to go back to an older version. The transitions between discs are perfect and add to the atmosphere. The Transmissions into deadwax are eerie at the least. Love the attention to detail and how it elevates the listening experience.
- Jacket and sleeves are nothing new, but the materials are sturdy. Much better than the 2011, 2002 and 96. The Gatefold fills the space and there's no unnecessary gap in the middle.
- I'm not into colored wax, but I would have loved this one to match the two different greens of the labels

There's little room for improvement here. Unless RTI or Pallas comes along and represses this, I can't see a better version coming along for a while. It's possible we might see a "US" repress. Get this one or the complete 20th Anniversary Endtrospective Edition with confidence.

disappointing quality here IMO. As the others mentioned it sounds terribly flat. 1/5 for this pressing, otherwise the album is a strong 5/5
