To much surface noise on my pressings. I don't recommend this pressing it will ruin your listening pleasure. I think the only way to receive a good pressing is to wait for a reissue that is not pressed at Rainbo.

Not even a clean on an Okki Nokki would help with the amount of surface noise. I would avoid this pressing. I love RTJ but I'll be sticking to digital. Not a great pressing.

My copy isn’t as horrible as some have received, but I do agree it is mostly bass and treble and sometimes the vocals get buried. I don’t have the surface noise issues. Not the best pressing, but listenable. Hopefully RTJ4 is higher quality. Still though, listenable.

I was just introduced to Run The Jewels and loved what I heard except for the dynamically compressed sound quality. When I saw that Sterling did the vinyl mastering job I visited my record shop and dropped the cash on RTJ 2 and 3 in hopes of better sound.

Yeesh what a waste of money. This is the first terrible pressing I've gotten from Sterling, very disappointed. As others have said there is a bit too much surface noise for a brand new pressing. Disc one was badly edge warped. Sound quality is exactly the same as the digital copy on RTJ3, if not slightly worse. I ripped side D of RTJ2 and dropped it in Audacity to confirm my suspicions on these pressings; yep, just as brickwalled at the CD. Sounds like the same deal on RTJ3.

Stick to digital with RTJ3; you'll find no sonic improvement on vinyl.

I love RTJ and this album especially, but the pressing I have is pretty bad. Cracks and pops on the first track of each side of each record, and one of the songs has a vibration on both vocals, like they're rapping through a box fan. Worse sounding pressing in my whole collection.

I would get this since it's a fun, fun album as always, but associating vinyl with RTJ is becoming just as nauseating to think about as with Jack White or Fleetwood Mac.

My records were flat like a pancake, but had terrible surface noise on side A and B. C and D were okay I guess. There also was some dirt stuck in the groove which I couldn't get out. I don't get it. What's the point of getting a STELLAR master and cut at Sterling to then have it pressed at Rainbo?

My copy of this is quiet and has excellent sound. It is not a "loud" mastering, but you can always turn it up. The mastering job is excellent with lots of depth, detail and texture in my opinion. I would rather have this than a "loud" mastering where the record can push the needle into mistracking and distortion. Musically, I rate this as a significant forward movement for Run the Jewels with more subtle rhymes and rhythms than ever. Top rating from me.

Yeah I've tried 3 times so far to get a copy where side 3 doesn't have crazy surface noise, I guess I'm going to give it one more shot. Not sure if i should try amazon again, or another retailer. A shame for such a great album.

I love this recording, but despise the record! It's like they had no idea how to master for vinyl. Stay digital my friends.
1. Its quiet
2. Its squashed
3. Its all bass and treble

You loose the voices all the time.

Should have asked their mate DJ Shadow, whose latest, The Mountain Will Fall, is masterful.
