My copy has "88691 963511-A-RE-1" in the runout. Is this a different press?

Great album, meh pressing.

Was really looking forward to spinning this, but it's got two pretty glaring issues if you're looking for a high-quality sound. First is the mix is incredibly quiet. I threw this on and listened to it the whole way through, comparing it with the Spotify mix to check if the mix was improved at all, (it isn't). I listened to the next album I had lined up, "Fragile" by Yes and almost gave myself a heart attack with the bass line of "Long Distance Runaround". I hadn't realized it, but I had cranked up my system many notches for "Money Store".

The second problem is that the mix isn't very good. Once you turn it up, it's still only a passable CD-esque quality mix. I guess one could claim that it's "lo-fi", which "works with Death Grips' aesthetic", but that means sacrificing bass on songs that SHOULD be blasting you out of your chair.

I can't recommend this pressing, but if you NEED this album on vinyl, it's probably the best you're gonna get as of writing this. The only other pressing is the mispress of this version, and that black/white split colored vinyl version that currently has a lowest price of $314.61. Yowza!

Definitely needs a bit of a volume and bass boost, but you can squeeze a good sound out of this record. Mine has a whoosh on side B that might've been self inflicted... I don't remember if it was there when I first spun it.

My copy is extremely quiet and sounds awesome. Many people complain about the lack of bass, but I don't really feel like it's that big of a problem. The mix definitely improves certain songs for me personally, i've seen footage especially. My only complaint is that the record itself was extremely dirty upon opening my sealed copy and thorough cleaning was required. The artwork is minimalistic and weird, fitting for the album. Great sounding piece though, absolutely recommended.

Its almost like we are back in the 50s with this record, funnily enough.
Not music wise, but sound wise its very mono with much in the center and rarely utilizing the stereo image well.
Otherwise its decent with good balance. Its got bass and highs for sure although a bit lacking in some parts for the former.
It is cut somewhat quiet and even though cranking volume can be scary with these harsh sounds its not to be feared with how its tamed quite nicely. It is Death Grips though so bedtime music should not be expected.
Vocals are nicely separated and present thankfully, but I feel like the soundstage lacks some depth overall.
The drums are an attempt at this but they just end up sounding really small instead of distant and that really is a shame.
Pressing wise its not the best either, with some low surface noise but worst being the clicks.
Again, it might not be too detrimental for this type of music so not a huge let down per se.

Equipment Used:
Rega RP1 with Paratrace tipped Nagaoka MP-200
Cyrus 2 Amplifier
System Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers
Custom made HQ Speaker Cables

The bass is a bit shy on some tracks but that may have been a result of mastering (I can still get some good lows if I turn volume up so YMMV), although the mids/highs sound better than digital in my opinion. I recently got a sealed copy and my record was very dusty/dirty in the grooves, and it needed a good cleaning and it pretty much eliminated pops/clicks and improved the overall sound quality greatly. The extra lyrics sheet included and printed inner were pretty neat. Completely worth it for the prices you can still get new copies at right now.

The front cover of this album gave me a torrid, raging erection, I had to hide it from my mam (the album AND the bulge in my trousers!!)
