This was well worth the wait from the UK to the US for an LP of this quality. As with all of my other Kendrick LPs I highly recommend the Euro issues, sound and press quality is top-notch. Sounds great compared to 320kbps MP3s, much better separation of vocals and music. LPs are in rice paper sleeves, have a good weight and are pretty dang flat too.

Excellent press. Complete clarity on my end, crisp vocals and good amount of bass, but i don't have a sub just yet, but this album makes me eager to get one. So glad this recent instant classic is a great press.

This is the way records should be pressed, I'm so psyched about how eargasmic this is!

I got this record while on vacation in Europe. Excellent sound quality with decent bass, no skips or any unnecessary background noise, really satisfied with this pressing. In my opinion it's a must for all hardcore fans out there.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Fantastic pressing, definitely a contender for one of the best sounding records in my small collection.

The bass alone is well worth the money I spent ($44.99 AUD). My copy has no skips or distortion or sibilance and little to none noticeable surface noise. The gatefold packaging is exquisite as well.

Played on an AT LP-60 USB.

The whole album is great but it's from B4 (Maad City) onwards that this album demonstrates the unique Kendrick Lamar sound which TPAB and Damn showcase throughout. Greatest artist of his generation.

Sounds really good, great album obviously, so I don't need to mention, but everything about this pressing is great, though I'm noticing the same thing with every Kendrick album I buy, is that the inner sleeves are always tightly wedged inside and are usually hard to get in and out, though I guess this isn't really a bad thing!

One of the best pressings in general I have heard til now. Nearly no background noises, it's like listening to a cd. What made me happy was the fact that the vinyls came in anti-satic sleeves which is one reason why it sounds so great but the main reason is the pressing itself. If you wanna check out what vinyl is capable of, then get your copy of this. Album highly recommandable as well.

I just bought my copy at Strand in NYC. Fully expected the US version but was pleasantly surprised to find the Europe one instead. It sure sounds nice with headphones. :)

EU vinyl press sounds great, quiet press and the bass is huge and the overall sound is very dynamic, no inner groove distortion also. I had some trouble with the first copy I got though (scratch) and a non-audible non-fill. The second copy also had some non audible non-fill but luckily no scratches.
