          Fantastic press! A common MOV W🙌 A dope album with «Outta Here» being my favorite track. Got «Sound Of Da Police» on here too👑 Only issue is that my copy came with a short deep scratch on «Black Cop», record 1 side A track 3. So the cartradge gets stuck in the same loop and cant move forward. Guess I was unlucky with mine. Innersleves are cardborad, its dope but kills your records. MOV usally print their records with great quality innersleeves. So you might wonna consider a better replacement. You can still fit the originals together with the records inside the cover

            Decent enough mastering and cut, fairs better than most at NRP. I'd say it's still a bit compressed and lacks a spacious low end that i would expect given the source material. Love the addition of the 7".
            However, the pressing is just flat out noisy. Maybe not something you care about with boom bap rap, but it is noticeable if you plan on spinning this frequently and treating it more than just a collectors item. Quality of the vinyl is per usual with United, rough edges, small spindle hole, flakes all within the original inners. Below average in my opinion. All that to say it's fine.... but the MOV pressing turned out exponentially better. Would recommend tracking down the MOV black pressing or the MOV clear pressing.

            With those MOVs readily available I'm not sure why anyone would go through the trouble of getting this pressing or any of the other Fat Beats pressings that use the same plates.

              IT'S ORANGE NOT GOLD... Can't stand when they say gold as it sounds better.

                This FatBeats pressing (cut and pressed at United) sounds like utter crap compared to the OG press, which is available for less than this "limited edition"

                Go with the Tony Dawsey Masterdisk cut, you won't regret it for a millisecond.

                  I have an original pressing of Return of the Boom Bap on vinyl but the sleeve was generic and the album was produced kinda poorly. The quality and care that Music On Vinyl take to produce their records is very noticeable. There was close to zero surface noise on this record. The mastering was very well balanced and full. I was genuinely surprised that it sounded so balanced.

                  I originally glossed over Music On Vinyls represses because I had a feeling that they were probably going to be poor. I kept seeing ads and had the thought that it was just a way to push bad vinyl to the masses. I was mistaken. I now understand the care they put into their work. I have also purchased Notorious BIG's Ready To Die and Faith No More's albums they have repressed because I know they are top notch quality. I was not disappointed at all.

                    Yes YESSSSSSS!!!! Mad NICE sound quality I agree with Big-Tabs on this one!

                    All I can say is this after looking at the product and dropping my needle on it.

                    The presentation looks very exclusive and well put together in it's own clear sleeve with the gold Music on Vinyl sticker on the top right. However this outter clear pvc sleeve is a little delicate on the sides so you may find some with minor seam splits which is not important to me BUT The actual LP cover looks nicely put together and the clear vinyls look absolutely BRILLIANT!!!

                    Now for the sound quality which is the most important!!! Rest assured as it's LOUD CLEAR AND CRISP.... :)

                    COLLECTORS!!! IF YOU DON'T RUSH AND SECURE YOUR COPY NOW YOU WILL BE PAYING A LOT FOR THIS ONE IN THE FUTURE. MY ADVICE WOULD BE TO

                    GRAB YOUR COPY BEFORE THEY RUN OUT!!!!!!!!!!

                    peace fabwoodman :)
