very dissapointing, distortion/hissing/clipping on Halftime and It aint hard to tell, sibilance and the vocals feel a bit cut off in general.

First copy I got had a load of distortion/sibilance on the vocals for 'Halftime'. Returned it and it's just the same on this copy. Kind of unlistenable, but the other songs sound very lush.

Does this pressing sound better than the Simply Vinyl re-pressing?

Found a repress for $9.99 sealed at a local record store. What a steal!

Does anyone know if this is an "explicit" or "clean" version of the album?

$100 for a cassette that sold hundreds of thousands of copies. Good luck with that.

anyone else's copy of this pressing plagued with sibilance? it's listenable for most of the record but it gets pretty bad on the final tracks of both sides.

Hip Hop in its purest form. Dope production and NaS spits flames. Absolute classic.

My copy has some silibance in the far inner grooves on both sides (Halftime and It Aint Hard to tell), but the rest sounds excellent.
