Direct Metal Mastering.

Contains numerous samples from the 1981 Hong Kong film "Shaolin & Wu Tang" (English dubbed version).

I just want to add this here because I think it's important: " Original pressing; can be best identified by the color of the label and size of the stamper ring that goes fully around the Wu-Tang Records logo on labels without touching it "

^^^^ this is wrong. my version has the ring touching the logo but also the correct matrix (variant 2 on this one) which is not found on the reprints.

Does anyone have pressing that has Rare Form Mastering (RFM) etching on the runout? I can't find any pressing of this album with that on discogs, but the album is listed on RFM's website. Also has 22-0016NL-07863663361 A etchinng.

Found one sealed in its original form for 20 bucks. I want to open and play it very badly....😤

Just echoing the below review: this is the second press from the original stamper, make sure DMM (direct metal mastering) is in the runouts. The 2014 repress is garbage and from a different source. That is probably the case for most of the sealed copies listed here..

While my copy doesn't suffer from the noise others' have, disc 1 is unacceptably warped. Otherwise the SQ is appropriate for this recording IMO.

This is my 1993 copy of Enter the Wu-Tang, one of the greatest hip hop albums ever recorded. I somehow got it for $20 from McKays in the new arrival bin. It now has a home where it receives weekly play. This is… one of my top ten albums. It is an absolute masterpiece of lo-fidelity, murky production, menacing and intrigue-steeped heavy beats, and lyrical style and variety enough to impress even the most stalwart opponent of raps inevitable charms.

The easily and casually dropped notes of violence, hilarious crude humor, and incredible wordplay on the album help inspire me every day to do better in my own wording for my songs. I aspire to be as a better lyricist than the day before every day. The overdubbed and chopped Kung Fu movie samples and play-style skits on the album give the entire production a very theatrical feel, and is one of the best executed examples of such a connection between music and actor, artists both. All art is in and of itself interconnected.

For those concerned about the quality of the pressing’s sound, as it has been oft-bemoaned on Discogs, my argument is maybe they just need to TURN IT UP! This album is PLENTY loud. It’s incredible in every way! The best pressing.

Lots of people listing sealed copies of this ‘90s Direct Metal Mastering 2nd pressing (EDIT: discogs merged this, now considered 1st press). Make sure sellers check the runouts before you buy.
