Track listing is labeled wrong on this copy. “Protect Ya Neck” is actually on side B, between “Method Man” and “Tearz”.

My pressing is plagued with severe surface noise despite a few tracks, a little gutted but this appears to be a widespread issue.

The album was mixed on a 4 track cassette portastudio. So if you want the proper version, you need to get the cassette version.

Can't wait for the day that this album is remastered. The pressing is beautiful and a great addition to my collection, but like all of the others, it is such a quiet album. Really have to max out my speakers to make it even sound decent.

Great press. It is indeed quiet, but so is every press of this album. Nice cut and great wax color.

After reading all the comments on this and other releases of 36 chambers I'm glad I got a good one. It still has some skips and noises but nothing really noticable or bad. This really is one of the best versions of this album on Vinyl.

Hearing that other vinyl releases of Enter the Wu-Tang sounded awful, I thought I would pick this up to see if it sounds any better. Having now listened to it multiple times, while it is quieter than my other records, I actually think it sounds pretty good. The bass is decent on my speakers and the sound come through clear, but at the same time I haven't listened to the previous vinyl releases. Perhaps this sounds the same as those and I'm just not judging it as harshly as others, but I would be interested to hear someone compare the two.

Also would like to note that the track listing on this release is NOT in the same order as the back cover. The order of songs on this release is actually the same as the CD where Protect Ya Neck comes after Method Man. Side one actually ends after Can It All Be So Simple.
