Sounds decent in my opinion, it looks like it was digitally compressed, but I'm very happy with this one.

I have this version but with different run out numbers and a stamp saying "Mastered at Capitol" in the dead vinyl on sides A and D.

I was worried when I saw that this was GZ pressing. When I opened it and there was scuff marks from the paper sleeve, I thought here we go. I cleaned it, hit it with zero stat and played it. Only surface noise was from the samples. Vocals are a little thin but the bass is not muddy like others reported. I might get the UK pressing to compare.

Extremely upset with this pressing! It sounds fantastic; however, both records won't fit on the turntable spindle without some serious TLC, and record two has a pretty substantial warp going on. The warp doesn't seem to change the sound of the actual record but I can hear the needle struggle every time it passes over the warp. I'm able to handle a small spindle hole on a record but warps really grind my gears. I'm about 85% sure this is only a case of bad luck as I haven't heard many horror stories in relation to this record, but take it from me it can happen so be as careful as you can be (granted there isn't much you can do with an unopened record until you open it).

Feel bad for the lad who thinks this is muddy, you must have gotten a bad copy, mine sounds crisp, textured. This is a genius at work in the sampling, arrangements, themes and transitions. Arguably one of the best and most unique albums of the past decade. I love this album and on vinyl I can clearly hear all its distinct components with clarity and texture. Much respect and love for Kendrick, a must own for any jazz/ hip-hop audiophile

Eh, expected more. Lacks clarity and is a bit muddy for my taste. Doesn't sound crisp. Bass muddy. 5/10

Can confirm that the center punch is a bit too small. Didn't fit the center spindle of my player and needed to be shaved down slightly.
Also, my copy has some melted plastic around the center punch and sharp/jagged bits on the outside ring of both LPs, which is a bit disappointing for a brand new copy.

However, the sound of this record is good overall with just a small amount of surface noise.

Great sound and great look. Go watch the needle drop if u want a review on the album in depth. As far as vinyl quality goes mine was very good. Only crackles came from samples and the rest was very clear. The sleeve felt a bit tight and I struggle sometimes to get the first disc out of it. Pretty sure it’s only my copy tho. As an album it’s probably the best record of the 10s if not all time. And as vinyl it’s great too.

The actual sound of this record is amazing. It's mastered extrememly well. However, there is a fair amount of surface noise that is barely noticeable in the parts with music, but very noticeable in the spoken interludes. I tried cleaning it but it didn't change. Maybe my cleaning method isn't good enough though. Keep in mind the surface noise was there from the first play and I bought this record brand new.

Avoid the in-house GZ cut EU pressing and get the US pressing cut by Scott Sedillo and pressed at RTI instead. THAT'S a FANTASTIC sounding record. I've used it to test review equipment before - it's that good.
