Do any of you know if the ones being sold here are overpriced or are they accurate for how rare the pressing is?

overall very good pressing, theres some surface noise throughout but since the mix is loud its not very noticable. great quality for a bootleg ^w^ (just a shame the sleeve is so smol, like the record just barely fits in the sleeve and there is no inner sleeve so thats also a thing)

Pretty record but mine showed up warped. I'm Overflow skips pretty bad in the intro.

Arguably my favourite DG purchase. A bootleg of a bootleg with the track Bootleg (Don't Need Your Help) on it.

My local shop always seems to have atleast 2 copies of this bootleg. Mint blue with dark blue marbling. I like the janky art and seems to sound fine running into my Digitakt for sampling purposes. Funny to hear "pirate" at the start of Anne Bonny listening on a bootleg.

A really great bootleg. Sounds cleaner than some of the official Death Grips pressings. Does not include inner sleeve and jacket is slightly small. This is easily remedied with third party outer and inner sleeves. Sounds basically exactly like the digital master but no major issues (other than some minor gaps in tracks) or surface noise. Would highly recommend to those who want to hear it on vinyl without paying for an original.

my copy turned up yesterday. great colour and in good condition. no inner-sleeve though, so something to make note of. the vinyl itself is a cloudy/marble white on HEAVY vinyl. my copy is SLIGHTLY warped, i doubt this will impact its listening quality. kinda awkward how beautiful this bootleg is compared to the over-priced official. the bootlegged artwork is hilarious however.

The best bootleg I own sound/print wise by such a huge factor. The bass is a bit lacking but boosted low mids/low on the EQ on my amp and it added back a decent amount of umph that the official releases had, it's little flabby sonically all round but again nothing overtly detrimental. The pre-gap issues are a non-issue personally, I've had official releases with way worse tracking/mastering so there's very little here to put me off on that front. Managed to pick it up for a tenner off eBay instead of the more ridiculous prices which were circulating when it was fresh from pressing so if you've been waiting for less dumb prices they're around now.

Damn, this pressing totally lives up to the great reviews. This is one of my favorite bootlegs in my collection, no doubt.
