(Quick Review #12)
Listen: #2

This was the first time I've heard college Dropout in a long time, and I enjoyed it. I don't think its as good as the other two school-themed albums, but it is still very enjoyable in my opinion. I really like most of the songs here, and while it definantly isn't Kanye's best work, its worth a few listens. I also must state that I listened to this on the shitty Vinyl pressing, so I may have enjoyed it more if I didn't listen to it on it. But it was still enjoyable, just not as good as some of his other stuff. I sound like I'm shitting on it but I still think this is a great album

Decent 8

Before I review the album I must review the vinyl.

Damn its bad. I mean I should have known concidering everyone shits on the vinyl pressing of this one. But I didn't think it would be THIS bad. It has a mix of the explicit and clean versions of the songs, the sound quality is ass and the record even at full volume sounds near silent. It's not nice. However unlike a lot of other people, my copy never skipped, but I would rather it have skipped a few times than have some of the clean versions of these songs.

Kanye's music has a reputation for being poorly pressed on vinyl. The only one that seems to be worth looking into is the recent 808s repress. The 2029 reissue of his catalog should be lit, though ;)

I'm thankful I got this for cheap because the skips are irritating. Side A is the worst in terms of skipping but there's a few skips overall on each song (and let me not even mention the sound quality). Be proud if you own a copy which doesn't have any problems.

edit: October 2nd 2015 - Since upgrading my record player this vinyl plays perfectly fine. The sound quality comment is still valid since the pressing overall isn't fantastic and is pretty thin, but it seems to be playing straight through without any skips.

Didn't notice any skips but wouldn't be surprised if it did. It sounds AWFUL. My understanding is all Kanye stuff is pressed pretty poorly and that the best sounding record is that bootleg out of Germany lol.

Grab this record if you can pick it up cheap but don't go out of your way to get it. I loved this album and got it for cheap but even I can't see past the flaws.

Brand new copy: plays absolutely perfectly on my setup. It was heinously filthy when i first got it out of the packaging though. Took a good wet cleaning to get all the dust off the surface before playing.

The skipping potential on disc B is definitely there as the pressing is off-center, but if your cartridge tracks well it should be alright.
