    This pressing sounds just fine. That lagoskid comment is wildly hyperbolic.

      This had to be the worst mastering ever done for a rap album. Rap albums are generally not the stuff of high audio quality but this reissue really took the piss. The whole thing sounds like it was mastered from an mp3 file; it is flat, dull, compressed and lacks detail. The original 90s pressing is so much better than this. If you can't get the original 90s pressing, still skip this and buy the CD instead.

        Anybody know if this 2016 reissue is cut from digital or analog?
