Get the UK double vinyl pressing - the US version cuts three tracks and the interludes to make way for a 'best of BDP' on side 4 - Why????

As mentioned before this is the vinyl version to go for. No missing tracks, it comes with printed inner sleeves and a much doper back cover than the US-pressing.

Sounds like there's a blanket over the music. The SQ is really bland. The pressing quality itself is okay - i dont have any pops or clicks on my copy, but theres a couple of spots of non-fill.

I'd avoid this on.

One could argue that the highlights shine brighter on The Blastmasters debut Return of the Boom Bap. But this is still my fav album from his solo catalogue. This self-titled album is pure dope all the way through. Kris was in top form back in -95, great guests and he’s backed up by DJ Premier (3 tracks) Diamond D and Showbiz on the boards and they all bring heat. This is a Hip-Hop album that still holds up 25 years after its release.

Ps, as others have already pointed out. The UK version is superior to the US one and definitely the one to get.

Why didn't they lathe cut "Ah Yeah", "Hold", and "Health, Wealth, Self" on KRS-One's second solo album?! What was wrong with all three of those tracks?!

The last KRS record I heard before this was "Criminal Minded", that was almost a decade ago. With so much space in between hearing a KRS record, I was glad that I perked my ears up to this. The stories were top notch, the melding of myth and reality all on full display over the instrumentals provided by Preem, Diamond D, and others that kept "KRS" to the roots of what make hip-hop the beautiful, informative, culture that it is. KRS' voice carries the most sporadic energy, whether in a reserved tone or verbose as he took this listener on an adventure from Side A through D, lamenting over the pillars of hip-hop and the pillars of existence in general. KRS comes in true professor form, yet dropping the knowledge that would never be surfaced in any public school curriculum as evident in a track like "REALITY". The best story on "KRS" though, comes in the form of "Hold", as KRS spits the classic tale of inner-city struggle, and why one growing up with "holes in the zapatos" would put a hole in the head of an asshole that could be you or me, on both sides, depending on your background. "Out For Fame" , rounds out my particular standouts on this self-titled record as KRS raps about the art of graph and why it is still criminalized as opposed to other pillars in hip-hop that have been pimped and tricked out for profit. "KRS-One" is a history book that plays like a compilation record with various DJs and artists inspired by The God dropping shoutouts here and there as the record spins. "KRS-One" is just another example in KRS' catalogue that his work is worth the time for your mind.

UK version is much better then US, i dont know why but the track listing is different, very strange, some lines are different aswell. very lame and i really dont understand why KRS would do this especially on the US release. dope album none the less 4/5
