Ye ye it’s got sum sibilance but it’s not as prominent as other pressings. Especially the atrocious 20th anniversary reissue (which I own).

Excellent sounding pressing. Just a bit of sibilance on the "S" sounds. Other than that it's nice and bass-y. Definitely recommend!
The clear isn't totally translucent but still good nonetheless 👍🏽

Is no one else getting heavy IGD on this record? I feel like all of the Illmatic pressings are like this and this one is no different...

High-quality pressing on clear vinyl. I replaced my Get on Down copy with this pressing and glad I did so!

Definitively suffers from sibilance like everyone is saying. If you can get past that though it’s a really solid pressing.

No postcard for me either, but I’m not complaining. Great pressing!

Quite good to me: the vinyl is pretty quiet, the jacket is standard but well done, and the inner is rad as well. Though not an astonishing pressing, the sound is convincing. A great addition if you want to have a copy of this indisputed classic, one of the G.O.A.T.s

There are the same sibilance issues and IGD on this press as every other press of this I've heard, sadly. Especially on Halftime, which is nearly unlistenable. No surface noise though, for whatever that's worth, so the outer grooves sound pretty nice.

For me it isn't bad at all, I'm actually pretty surprised how good it is.
