      Pleasant dynamic pressing. This pressing has balanced bass, clean vocals, albeit with some noise at the beginning of the album but soon dissipates. This is a much better way to listen to this album compared to streaming.
      • fakingangsta1234's avatar
        Great pressing In terms of sound quality. Production always sounded great and here is fantastic. Dynamics are really good on my system, even when this album belongs to a digital recording era.
        This european version is pretty solid in this area.
        Only have two problems with this version:
        -The Art Cover is a png. of bad quality. Some say it is intentional but at the end it looks horrible in comparision with the inside photos.
        -A lot of Surface noise and Pops (after cleaning)
        on the beggining of each side.

        • MatiasKoskinen's avatar
          Sounds amazing. Zero surface noise and amazing dynamics. Great pressing all around!

            The sound on this is great and I was prepared to write all about that, but they made an absolutely baffling choice as far as splitting up Side A and Side B. The transition from These Walls to U, when Kendrick says "I found myself screaming in a hotel room", it cuts off before he says the M, then on the other side you actually hear him pronounce the M before the scream starts. I get having to split it, they pushed as much as they could on Side A, but how in the hell did they manage to so badly fuck that up? I get ultimately that's not a deal breaker, it's small potatoes in the long run but damn man, that's such a simple thing not to fuck up so it sticks out.

            That aside, pressing sounds amazing. Dead silent, dynamic as fuck, this album was made for vinyl. The bass has never sounded better, strong and punchy and present and pumping but never overpowering, never muddy, never leaking into the other instruments. The production is wide and lush, each note from each instrument and sample rings out and you don't miss a detail. Layers upon layers open up, revealing little bits a pieces filling out the atmosphere you might otherwise miss. An absolute fucking masterpiece, this is without a doubt contender for greatest album ever made, of all time, ever. Transcends genre and encompasses art as a concept, one of the most brilliant and breathtaking works of humanity. Kendrick never misses a beat, every verse and line perfectly pronounced, punctuated, precise. One of the greatest narratives ever put to music, an album you listen to front to back every time. Every producer, musician, sample, engineer, and crew member on this thing put in their best work ever, elevating a masterpiece into a fucking historical landmark. If you've never heard this album before you're almost committing a fucking crime, an absolute must hear for any human being with the capacity to feel emotion. Kendrick has not missed in his entire career, and this is the peak of peaks. Literal perfection.

              My brother gave this to me as a birthday gift. I had the most profound experience of my life spinning this in my chevy trailblazer one early morning. This was my favorite album from 2017 up until I listened to ITCOTCK in 2018. Great memories and some lessons along the way.

                Sounds real real good, zero surface noise. Nice heavy duty vinyl
                • ElvisDubstello's avatar
                  One of the all-time classic rap albums.

                  Absolutely flawless pressing.

                    This is one of my favorite albums ever, and it was a little bit disappointing to see the second disc didn't have the best quality possible. The edges felt pretty rought and the hole in the middle didn't fit in my turntable. I had to pick sandpaper and carefully fix the problem.

                    The sounds is good tho! If you want to give it a shot, do so. Maybe you'll have better luck than me.

                      Sorry also forgot to ask, does anyone know what the braille says on the inside cover

                        Love the hidden clear text on top of the photos in the upper left corner of the left inside cover
                        Mine says “thank you God & family pt || 2”
                        Any one else notice this or have this? curious if there’s variations
