I have the original vinyl, which sounds pretty poor - not sure if it's the pressing or the mastering or what is at fault, but it's pretty weak sounding. Can anyone tell me if / how the reissues are any better?

Eric B did nothing on this besides take credit for being around and his half ass scratching. Production was all Paul C (RIP), Large Professor, and Rakim. Know the truth!

I remember it seemed like Rakim was running out of ideas by this album, although there are still some good tracks. Not sure how any MC could keep up the stream of incredible lyrics like he did for two full albums.
