great LP from Erykah Badu, the red LPs look nice and sounds fantastic, a big tall sound that is also airy, warm and has a lot of depth, powerful drums , great stereo effects with her voice, the LPs are really crankable, sounds like an analog recording and mix, the laquers were cut by Ray Janos @ Sterling Sound, both records are dead quiet - the only surface noise comes from the samples, no skipping problems that people have with the MOV reissue, only a tiny amount of sibilance in the track C4 In love with you, i bought the record in 2000 and i think it was limited edition, i paid for the 2LP 40DM=20€, sounds cheap compared to nowadays but was really expensive for the year 2000, for the the MOS Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star (from 1998) as pictured above you had to pay like 13-14€
the only problem was and is the missing cover

To anyone who is experiencing the skipping issue on ;Cleva', I have looked at it with a magnifying glass and played around with it and it seems that the grooves are very close/ run into one another. After a day or so of staring and magnifying it seems the solution/issue is the anti-skating. On my pro-ject carbon III if I rest the anti-skating weight (or basically remove it) so that it is not in force during the song, the skip does not occur, (it did a couple times but I think it is okay now). So it's maybe that this bridge between the groves is being followed when the anti-skating is pulling the needle through and into a loop rather than following the groove around properly. I'm pleased because this is probably one of my favourite albums ever, Best of luck to you fellow Badu-ites, enjoy the music!

My copy plays like a charm, no skips or what have you.. I can't believe the guys at MOV would okay a faulty matrix to go to the presses... Mine is black vinyl and I'm playing it right now on the crappiest of crap record player, so maybe put a little more weight to the needle..?

Badu's best album imo. As classic as Baduizm is, it sounds of it's time to me. This sees her Pushing herself in different directions and experimenting and it all comes together perfectly.

beautiful packaging and happy this was finally repressed, but has anyone besides me had any issues with disc one(red disc) such as surface noise or skips?

Anyone else found a fault on this on the Cleva track? Bought two copies now with the same fault. Two words ending up on loop. Very disappointing for a £25 record.

On Mama's Gun Badu stretches out artistically. The lyrics are more direct, the style's a little more expansive that her amazing début, but the result is a set of less memorable songs that just aren't as strong or fresh. She's still a great artist; you can still hear Billie Holiday, Gill Scott-Heron and Stevie Wonder, and there are some good, memorable tunes on here, I particularly appreciate the teaming up with Stephen Marley on the ballad "In Love With You" but it was always going to be a tough task to top "Baduizm", and this doesn't do that.
