Great record for all those who like genuine QB Rap.
Fantastic sounds to turn up the volume and nod your head!
Even my record (1995 US pressing) is in great shape I recognised strong noises and cracks on some Tracks like 'Survival Of The Fittest or 'Eye For A Eye'. First felt like "damn" but then co'mpared to the CD and hear similar noises.
So it is a pressing issue and maybe meant to be. However you have no choice and the sound is tight though!

Memories man, I remember in the early to mid 90's when anything coming out of Queensbridge, Wu, or Boot Camp Clik was a gem.Mobb Deep beats were way advanced compared to a lot of shit in the golden era, Havoc had some of the bests beats in the Nineties, mabie he wasnt Premier or Pete Rock but his beats off the Infamous and Hell on Earth were nasty
