My stickers are not aligned. I wet clean my new vinyl and I did not experience many crackles and pops. Clear sound quality and good bass.

Good album but poor pressing. Lots of pops and crackles. LP1 stickers were misaligned and has a slight warp. Clear vinyl looks cool though. I’m also happy that this release includes The Recipe, it was a must have track when I was hunting this down.

I thought for many years that after the 90s, real good hip hop and rap were dead, then I discovered this album and also Kendrick's other album (D.A.M.N.) and my hope got restored. Killer LP, this guy is a pure talent and Im happy that there is still someone doing real rap music out there nowadays. Maximum respect.

This isn't a review as much as it is a warning. So if you're looking for an actual critical review of this vinyl release, keep scrolling.

Bought this from Target's website, and then excitedly waited for it to arrive. And waited. And waited. And waited. It's been nearly a month now and I still haven't gotten it. Fortunately Target did give me a refund and said that if I do get it, I'm welcome to keep it. I don't know if what I went through is just particular to this one product, or whether or not others have experienced this issue. It's very likely I was just unlucky in this situation. But still; if you really do want to buy this version, instead try to find it in stores if you can. It is a shame that I didn't get it, because the album is a near masterpiece and this reissue looks absolutely beautiful. I will come back and review this properly if I ever receive my copy.

Target exclusive 2LP clear. My rating is high mainly because of the $17.99 price point I got it at. The bass is there but don't expect a very dynamic sound with pronounced separation in the mids that stand out in any way. Crackles and pops exist. There is one small static burst towards the middle of Black Boy Fly - not sure if all the pressings have this defect? If you're looking for the best audio quality, throw on a good pair of cans and listen to it via Apple lossless. Happy they included The Recipe as that was the first KL track I really dug since Dre brought the new kid out to perform it at Coachella 2012. Wish they included Collect Calls though as that is another bonus track banger. But this is a new school hip hop classic that is nice to throw on the plate, relaxing at home on a sunny summer California day.

I have Side B label on both sides of LP1. Other than that great pressing, quiet and great dynamics.

I have one with a USA-printed sleeve—and that says "Made In Canada" on the shrink wrap only—but the records inside were pressed in the Czech Republic (variant 8—according to the matrix numbers) and the labels say Czech Republic also. I am guessing that, at this point, the label probably recalled most of the 2012 US version that was manufactured at United Record Presssing, kept the sleeves and replaced the records inside with ones pressed in the Czech Republic.

For what its worth, the pressing quality of the vinyl (made at GZ in the Czech Republic) is excellent. No skips, clean—lacking the surface noise that would be present on a poorly pressed copy—and sibilance is a non-issue. This is a hip hop album pressed correctly to my ears (I returned a 4xLP copy of "Wu Tang Forever" without hesitation due to excessive sibilance—aka "S" distortion—look it up!)

I guess there is no way of knowing your copy has the GZ manufactured records inside without opening it up. If you get yours on Amazon, you could at least send it back it they give you one that has the vinyl manufactured in the USA (look for the Ⓤ symbol in the deadwax—that's United Record Pressing in Nashville, TN).

THE IRONY of GZ pressings being more coveted than URP pressings in the 2010s I sincerely hope is not lost on anyone who was involved in vinyl distribution over a decade ago (I think you just have to be careful with any URP pressed releases in dark years between Jack White discovering "Record Store Day" and opening up his own pressing plant in Detroit in 2016. URP was so over capacity between 2012-2016 that they had to open a new plant)

the pressing was horrible! the stickers were not aligned properly and the record would constantly loop and the spindle hole was not big enough.
