Are these legit instrumentals, or loops created from the album versions?

Awesome version from the real debut if the legends! 180gram white vinyl and it sounds great!

Ordered a copy of the opaque white and was sent this one instead:P The LPs have some significant surface noise, particularly side A, maybe it was just my copy, but it seems that way. Overall not bad. Good bass and a good loud full sound, not muffled or anything.

It is slightly but significantly louder than my original Japanese single LP pressing, but that version has that warmer and fuller feel and was pretty loud itself for a single LP. The bonus tracks were a nice touch, especially "Credit Is Due" which fits right in here. "Check the Technique (remix)" is barely different but cool anyway.

Although its pressed at GzVinyl, the cut itself has at least been done by a proper cutting engineer, not an automaton. There are a lot of hand scribes on the run outs, looks like it was either cut by an engineer called "M" or could be "tt" (with the t's crossed). By any measure its got a good sound I would say, its not a disappointment. The mix of the album was alwasy a bit muddy, where other tracks are bright. By todays standards this is a decent repress that is worth the short outlay you can get it for. Jump in

This pressing is amazing. Still available via Urban Legends and Merchbar. Do not pay a scalper for this.

Is this the 180 gram release I've seen around on eBay?

Excellent sounding pressing. Comes in a thick, heavy cardboard cover.
