Notes

2014 reissue housed in a tri-fold jacket. Comes with a double-sided poster and a fold-out lyric sheet.

Same CAT # as the 2008 version. This version has "Def Jam 30 recordings" sticker on shrink to denote 30th anniversary of Def Jam in 2014.

This release can be differentiated from the original 2008 pressing by the CD art. On this version, the colored lines go straight across. On the 2008 version, the colored lines follow the pattern of the slot inside the gatefold.

D3 is a hidden track.

"RoboCop" embodies portions of "Kissing In The Rain" written by P. Doyle

"Bad News" contains a sample of the recording "See Line Woman" as performed by Nina Simone. Used under licence from Universal Music Enterprises. Used by permission. Written by George Bass

"Coldest Winter" embodies an interpolation of "Memories Fade" written by Roland Orzabal

    Very, very punchy pressing - the vocals can get buried in the mix at points but it sounds mostly great otherwise. Not sure if it's completely worth the suggested retail price, but it's still great. The included CD and poster are great additions too

        Copy came in with little to no popping, static or anything. Both LPs played beautifully, Pinocchio Story did sound a bit off but other than that, worth the money. By far my favorite album from Kanye.

          Slight manufacturing error, besides that it's fantastic.
          The first record had an oddly small spindle hole, easy enough to fix. Sadly after I got it playing I noticed occasional skips on the B side. The second record doesn't have any of these problems.
          808s is by far my favourite Kanye project, however, I can't full-heartedly recommend this pressing for the aforementioned issues.

            By far the best sounding Kanye release on vinyl (official or unofficial) in my opinion. I love the way this sounds. This album is an absolute classic too. Highly recommend. Pinocchio Story will have you crying without fail.

              pretty damn good pressing. no issues of static or pops on mine. the packaging is beautiful and is probably the nicest in my collection.

                Sounds fantastic! There was a bit of noise and popping on my copy even though it it was cleaned, but my goodness it sounded good. My only gripe is that some sibilance is noticeable is some very isolated spots... not enough to bug me though.

                  This sounds perfect. The Synths, The Bass,and The Vocals come out perfectly. No Noise and no clicks. The songs are fucking great too! My favorite song has to be Paranoid.

                    Really disappointed with this one, loud pops all throughout and my 2 favorite tracks, Robocop and Streetlights, have 2 really noticeable skips in them. My Late Registration, which is supposed to be the worst Kanye pressing, sounds so much better compared to this one

                      My copy sounds perfect, pinocchio story is a bit noisy but that is probably because its fairly quiet. I really do wish they made this 3 sides with an etching on the side D or something, 4 sides was far from needed here
