Can anyone explain the deal with the different album covers with this album? I have the recent EU press (has a van on the cover). The early US press had that group photo and seems like the recent US press now has another picture of a car similar to the van picture.

That dreaded stamped Ⓤ. Have had too many bad pressings from universal. Companies like that are ruining the vinyl comeback.

Groundbreaking forward-thinking album.
Crap pressing unfortunately. But still nice to have on vinyl.

Anyone know if this was ever released as it was originally intended with 12 tracks and the original cover on vinyl?

I don't understand why they felt the need to put the bonus tracks on this. They really mess up the album; Compton is the perfect track to end on, and Now Or Never is just a genuinely terrible song for Kendrick. Really disappointing.

@ JoshuaSeanHaynie I also noticed the low volume when i was spinning it at a bar recently, will try it again tonight, maybe i can check for the lacking highs that you mentioned.
