    This sounds amazing. But mine has no stickers anywhere. It never did. Still in shrink, like always and forever. B-boys makin with the freak freak y'all. I mean damn

      Just picked up a new copy of this. Sounds amazing! First time hearing this on vinyl and it's close to a religious experience for me.

      Super silent and flat pressing. Side A on mine is pressed slightly off-center though. Side B is centered perfectly.

        Agree with the other reviews here--Solid pressing of an absolutely ESSENTIAL album. The production on this record is pure genius. Every track kills it, thought I did need to turn the volume up a tad to get the most of it. A top 5 album of all time for sure, just as good now as the day it was released.

          Essential to any collection. Sounds great despite being crammed on a single LP, and the packaging is great. Definitely a great alternative if you can’t afford or find the double LP reissue from a few years ago. Get on the mic, Mike!

            It's a decent pressing if, you haven't heard what they did with Hello Nasty. This album needs a little bit more love like they gave to that one. It would sound AMAZING! This is still my 2nd favorite Beasties record either way. To this day, I still consider it a Hip Hop masterpiece. It really is!

              A little low in volume but quiet pressing and makes up for it with great dynamics!

                People love the way this record sounds, but I don't love the quality of the actual record sleeve. The glossy surface doesn't allow the sleeve much flex - it feels if its opened too many times it will fray apart. The creases in the double gatefold make a lot of noise... it's like a count-down to armageddon whenever I open it.

                  Anyone who has compared this to the 2019 2XLP reissue? I love this lp and have this edition. In theory spreading this out over a double lp should increase fidelity in most areas, but I know that having this cut at Sterling by Ray Janos (the RJ in the matrix) is always a great sign of quality in a vinyl pressing.

                    I wasn't expecting much from this but what a pleasant surprise! How they managed to squeeze all those tracks in one record only and make it sound amazing is a mystery! Well worth every $, grab it now before suddenly it gets hard to find, it's a fantastic pressing.

                      I bought this back in 2010, listened to it a few times and honestly forgot about it. I just gave it a spin tonight and it’s fantastic. Vinyl is dead quiet, separation is great and it sounds killer! The bass is thick and defined. It thumps!
