I'll agree with most of the comments on here, it does sound like they did a major bass boost to album. Take that as you will, people seem to love it or hate it. Me personally, I think its a little overkill but if you find yourself in a spot where this is a good price, I would grab it.

One of my best sounding records, I can only imagine the 93 press has different mastering (as mentioned in the "remastered" versions here-forth) as this sounds amazing. 0 regrets in getting this version, sounds very clean (personally more detailed than digital, but that gets into semantics and debates I guess)

Just picked up a sealed copy and gave it a good cleaning before playing. It sounded pretty good to me, better than my recent downloaded version, and none of the negatives that others mentioned.
The only cons for me was the quality control of the vinyl itself. Swirl marks on both sides and a couple of rough edges. As condition is important for me, I was not happy opening a sealed copy to see that.
Regardless, sounds very good, no distortion, excellent clean sounding bass, and clean mixing from Dre. It definitely brought me back to 1993 when I first bought the CD and became a new instant Snoop fan!

Needed to correct my comment by just having listened to both once again. 93 press wins hands down for me. They raised the bass too much and overprocessed the master on the 2LP repress wich makes it sound closer to the CD version than a vinyl. A lot of gain but it lacks seperation and deepness in the mix. But still it sounds clean, it's just a matter of taste.

To compare this one with my 1LP 1993 US repress they made due to the sampke clearence. I must admit on the good side that it's a pleasure that I do not need to raise the gain all the way up like on the 1993 release. But to me none is better than the other, they just sound different. It might have to do with both the change of master, now going digital to analog while it was tape analog to analog on the 1LP press. On this repress they managed to expand bass seriously, but it does not go to the ridiculous point of the "What's my name ?" single CD wich sounds too much, muddy. The original press gives a better separation of the different tracks (instruments) to me while it seems to lack just a bit of bass and has a whole lower playing level. Now I don't know if this is a view of my mind, but most of my single LP that I don't like for their lack of gain, on the other side give me a true satisfaction when it comes to mix equalisation and separation. May be someone can correct...

Listening to this now and it sounds great on my system. Crisp and clear. The bass sounds amazing.

I recently purchased this record BRAND NEW and sealed (in 2017). It was from London Drugs in Canada. The strange thing is...it looks IDENTICAL to THIS 2001 2x LP pressing. Even the numbers / letters engraved into the runout appear the same. Unfortunately I don't have a 2001 pressing to compare with. I find it hard to believe that London Drugs (which stocks only new vinyl) could have a 2001 pressing...but it SURE looks like the pics of a 2001 pressing.

I only own the remastered version (this one). I´ll try to listen to the original one, until now and without knowing how the original one sounds i thought this copy sounds okay.

I'm surprised to hear people say this version sounds lousy. On my stereo, this thing sounds amazing. If the original sounds any better than this, it'd be worth the big bucks they're asking for it.
I mean, I get it. You kinda pity the naiveté of people who once thought plastering "Digitally Remastered" on a jacket was a selling point. But if it's hurt this album any, I can't hear it.
And sound is what this album is all about, IMO. Especially side one, it's just so...immersive. The snaky, fuzzy, low-end bass synth, topped with sensual/spooky synth lines and sleigh bells - it's just an amazing record, very visceral. Still fresh as fuck, today. For me, it's always about the music, the sound, the production. The music is definitely there on this disc, and Snoop's got a very laid-back flow. Laaaaaid, back. A stone classic.
