    Who here really has the $$$$ hifi equipment to really give the vinyl play feedback or are you all listening to your crosley record players with a penny taped to the cartridge head with the critique of a sound engineer.

      Original copy plays better after several cleanings. Overall quality is a bit of a disappointment - vinyl feels nice in hand but edges are sharp enough to cut and the issue of having to clean the record several times until finally getting it to play normally just isn't acceptable. Surprised by the fall off in quality since other VMP releases have been great and it seems I am not the only one disappointed with this pressing.

        Got 3 copies from VMP. All had bad surface noise on the right channel. Sounded like a needle was scraping over the sidewalk. Probably the biggest disappointment I have experienced with a pressing.

          One thing is for certain, there will never be a 5 / 5 release of this album but this version is by far the best I've heard. This album was recorded on an extremely small budget with equipment that was far from ideal, creating a LoFi sound that sounds gritty no matter what medium you're listening to it on. I'd say this pressing sounds as good as it's going to get on vinyl.

          My only complaint is the vinyl is fairly noisy in some spots but mine has no actual manufacturing defects. The noise on the record doesnt bug me too much because it blends in with the samples they used.

          If you're on the fence and are willing to pay an extra $10, this is the version to get.

            Best pressing of this as far as I can tell. I’ve always thought this album needed to be remastered badly, as it’s always been underwhelming in terms of sound. VMP definitely delivered here.

              I got replacement records for the sound issue with disc one, the new records play fine but this time the labels are switched! Seems VMP have a habit of missing these little things...
              Update: they replaced that one and we went back to the original problem, after that they refunded me...

                Sounds great but will need a few cleanings to get rid of surface noise.

                    Props to everyone who got good pressings, but this thing is NOISY! No wonder I was able to find a used copy here locally. I'll stick with my 180 gram Sony reissue. Still not very loud, but much cleaner sounding and less surface noise. I couldn't even listen to Clan In Da Front with all the clicking coming out of my right speaker. Disappointed to say the least because the packing itself is so nice. A single LP version shouldn't sound better, but I'll take less bass over less surface noise.

                      My copy sounds great, far better than my late-90s reissue. No pressing/QC issues.
