If yoy're complaining about quality that means you bought a bootleg.


September 13, 2017
Was leery to purchase being that I'd read on multiple sites that it skipped and was of poor quality. However, my copy sounds great straight through. No skipping at all. So there are obviously some good copies.

Just got a new sealed copy of this and disc 1 both sides are exactly the same

Pretty weak!!

My favorite Kanye album, I think his music went downhill from here, excluding a few tracks here and there.


July 30, 2016
Is there Czech Rebuplic pressings of this like Late Registration & others?


April 10, 2016
Is it true that the LP version of this album completely gets rid of all the skits in between the tracks?


March 25, 2016
I just play my brandnew copy right now. No skips, no clicks and fantastic sound! i don't understand all the complaints. Maybe this is a different pressing? Is it possible that there is a Re-Issue?


February 23, 2016

Just spun my newish copy... no skips, timing issues, or anything else folks complained about on here. Real bummer for all of you, luckily mine is solid as hell. I just wish KW would repress Graduation, Twisted, and Yeezus... let alone press Pablo now.

Before I review the album I must review the vinyl.

Damn its bad. I mean I should have known concidering everyone shits on the vinyl pressing of this one. But I didn't think it would be THIS bad. It has a mix of the explicit and clean versions of the songs, the sound quality is ass and the record even at full volume sounds near silent. It's not nice. However unlike a lot of other people, my copy never skipped, but I would rather it have skipped a few times than have some of the clean versions of these songs.

Kanye's music has a reputation for being poorly pressed on vinyl. The only one that seems to be worth looking into is the recent 808s repress. The 2029 reissue of his catalog should be lit, though ;)
