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.

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.

I'm only marking this down for no paper sleeve, but i am satisfied with finally owning this on vinyl regardless not owning a poxy 300 copies version with a pointless license plate for "collectibility". its missing the inlay artwork but thats nothing to be put off by. the sound is crisp, clean and comes in a nice price (i picked one up for 20 quid tops). there is the gaps mentioned but if you can live with that get one before it becomes another overly expensive collectible, which shouldn't be in the first place. all in rights of the album states.. "bootleg" :)

Tracks have gaps for some reason (probably a lazy mp3 rip), and the disc with paper sleeve doesnt fit inside the outer. Contrary to what others have said, my copy did come in a paper sleeve. The disc was packaged outside of the outer as well. All that being said this is pretty great for it's price and I'd highly recommend picking this up if you don't want to haggle with scalpers. The disc came in a very clean condition and there were about two pops that I heard throughout my listening.

If anyone has knows of any U.S. sellers with a reasonable price let me know. Ebay fools in America are selling for like 40-50 bucks

Just picked one up for 10 dollars and play tested it against an OG copy. Of course, the sonics aren't as good as the original and the frequency range is kinda small (the bass parts aren't as heavy, the cymbals don't have as much space), but the actual sound quality isn't bad. I wouldn't say it's as good as the Exmilitary boots, but it is for sure better than I was expecting.

But, there are some negatives on the sound quality tip: it's pretty noisy. It doesn't really interfere with the music since it is so loud without any sort of dynamics on this press, but in the space between the tracks and at the beginning/end of the sides, it's extremely obvious. Plus, when I put it on straight out of the jacket, it was skipping a lot. At least twice during "You might think...". I brushed with a simple dry brush and it stopped skipping, but it was still popping really heavy. The B side played better in comparison, but it still was popping and noisy enough to be a bother. Personally, though... it's much better than your average bootleg and good enough for me.

The picture sleeve itself is hella small. My copy didn't come with a paper sleeve inside of it, the record was loose, but it barely fits one anyway. It's a similar size to bootleg Aphex Twin singles, like the 20th anniversary "reissue" of the Didgeridoo, if you've ever seen those.

For ten bucks, it's worth it for the hilarious knock off artwork alone. If you don't have a copy of the original GP press, I'd even say it's worth twenty bucks. It's not perfect, but who the fuck wants anything related to Death Grips to be perfect? Isn't that part of the fun?

Just got mine home. Two tracks in and it sounds decent to me. I love that they made their own crappy version of the cover. I was cracking up comparing it to pictures of the official one.
