    Sounds great! Weird that intros to songs are on the end of sides 1 and 2 and then the song continues on the next side. Also, Ham and Eggs and Mr. Muhammed are switched on the back cover and record labels. And Pubic Enemy is misprinted as Public Enemy. Minor issues… the sound is NICE!

      I think this must have been bootlegged based on people's comments. I bought this reissue used in a second-hand shop in Boston in 2003 and it sounds fine. Nice and clear with loud and punchy bass.

        Not an impressive pressing at all. Hoping & betting on VMP reissuing this as a 45rpm set as well !!

          Noisy pressing. Poor quality. Weird track starts. Feels like a bootleg. Not impressed.

            Reading these reviews gave me a very different impression than the album I got- it sounds really great, minor surface noise throughout but that just blends with the music- I have a very good pressing. I understand the complaints about tracklisting and a the misprinted "Public Enemy" and if this was an album I was super familiar with, I would be similarly peeved- still, happy about picking this up just fine.

              Original 96 pressing sounds very good!! Same with the 96 low end theory 2LP!!

                This is definitely not a 1996 pressing. It’s very recent. And it stinks. Get the 25th anniversary pressing. Sounds a lot better and has the full album unlike the earlier pressings

                  Garbage pressing, thin and sibilant and dull. It seems to me they just took the CD master and threw it on vinyl, given the way an intro for a song will appear before a side break rather than connected to the song it belongs with. Oh and it's in a thin, single pocket jacket with no liner notes or anything and they couldn't even get the name of Pubic Enemy right. Really, Jive just didn't care on this one, and it shows.

                    What are they thinking putting the intros to the songs on the wrong sides of the album. (The intro to Can I Kick It is on side b and the song starts on side c, nearly every side has this problem except for side c where they play the intro for Mr Muhammad but then Ham and Eggs plays as the songs are switched around for some reason. WHYYY

                      Those writing in here recently about poor quality almost certainly do not have the 1996 pressing. Right now there 51 SEALED copies listed for a 24 yr old pressing. Far more likely is that those poor quality pressings are bootlegs, or at the very least a recent poor quality repress.
