I’ve purchased 4 of these now and on every single one the tracks “shoulda known” and “you” skip constantly through the entire song. I think I’ll be giving up now. Bought a copy of the atmosphere EP on vinyl and “scapegoat” did the exact same thing. Anyone else have these problems with any atmosphere albums in vinyl?

I purchased a sealed copy of this Atmosphere title “When Life Gives You Lemons…” and despite the hype sticker saying it included a 20 page booklet and a download card, neither were inside the packaging.

Just curious if this has been reported yet by anyone else, or was it possibly a one-off mistake?

This is about as crazy and extravagant as you can get with a sleeve and packaging. It is top notch in every way. It's a bit expensive but worth it to me. This is my favorite album by Atmosphere. Slug and A.N.T. came with everything on this release. Like the Rest Of Us sounds so damn good. As does Yesterday and Guarantees. There is really not a wasted track on this album.

The production is just as top notch as the packaging. Zero surface noise. Balance and dynamics are spot on. I made no adjustments and it sounded about as perfect as you can get.

To me this is a hip hop master piece. This album is rated high in my personal rap top 10.

As much as I love the original press for it's simplicity, I'm considering buying this one too just for the extra material and the book.

My favourite album by Atmosphere. Love the simplicity of the cover and lemon-coloured records!

My labels don't smell like anything. I demand a refund

They did a terrific job on this anniversary edition. Looks and sounds great and the children's book is actually pretty good. However, while the black fabric has a great look and feel, you probably need to touch it with gloves if you want to avoid fingerprint residue. :)

Reality raps from Minnesota never sounded better. I was glad to hear this, the perfect backdrop for while I was starting my day cleaning up my apartment. Slug spits story after story ranging from his personal relationships to relatables with tales of people who from the outside looking in have thrown their lives away but, that’s just not the case, considering the first track - which levels the playing field for the joys and pitfalls in the humanity production known as life that is masterfully described through Slug’s storytelling . whether it’s a tale of a homeless man rarely noticed except by a waitress he sees everyday, or the tale of women waking up to lives they are familiar with yet would rather claim stranger to, down to griots of little girls distracting themselves through whatever daddy plays on the speaker while he is up to no good trying to keep their relationship going in the opposite direction of regret which Slug ends up reminiscing over on this record, “When Life Gives You Lemons ...” is a koladioscope of life over Ant’s electro-tinged hip-hop inspired beats, perfectly blended for the 2008-era it was created in made to be enjoyed and studied as a touchstone for eons ahead of it’s original release date
