I bought this years ago and was clueless that it apparently isn't an official pressing. It was in my local record store, and I didn't even think twice. I'm only learning on here now after years of listening to this copy that there are any issues with ... See full review

A pressing of this is needed badly. Seriously, how did that not happen... Great stuff.

Fantastic sounding pressing of this eclectic bunch of leftfield bangers. It's a bit weird to me that they didn't sit on these tracks then release them as more of an official album with vocals, because there are some great instrumentals here. Lots of ... See full review

I was a bit lost when all the different versions of this album started popping up, but was glad to find this one for a safe bet. My copy sounds perfect. I think this is probably my favorite of the five albums, and it ranks pretty high in their total ... See full review

I wasn't expecting too much out of a Newbury repress of this, but my copy actually sounds amazing. Dead silent with full, punchy sound. Throw in the very cool looking wax, and they really killed this one. Really excited to finally get a copy of this ... See full review

Checking in with #247. Loved the sonic journey through this album. It's a very well curated LNT. I guess it's not for people who can't handle a few spoken word tracks, but I thought those only added to the strange, mystical atmosphere of this tracklist. ... See full review

Amazing sounding pressing of a surprisingly good album. I was totally unaware of this man until receiving this record, and I immediately fell in love with it. I was playing this for a few friends the other day and I think he earned a few more fans.

We're on a run of oddly mainstream choices for record of the month, but I can't complain at all about this one. I have always loved this album, so I'll take a new fresh copy to listen to. This is top 25 favorite all-time rap albums material for me. ... See full review

Great B side track! Glad I snagged this thing for that song. Sounds perfect. They seemed to have pressed way too many of these, as there's a huge stack of them on the counter at my local record store this week, months after the release now.

Same. But this section is for reviews of the album. Info about the release belongs in the comment thread on the "Edit History" page. Thanks!

There's an unfortunate amount of surface noise, but I really don't find it very bothersome during the tracks, which sound very full and loud. It's a good pressing, just not absolutely perfect.

You can look at any major publication reviewing it and tell that this is a good album, but I was truly wowed when I finally threw this record on. This album delivers a rock solid 14 tracks, where I feel like there are more highs and lows to some previous ... See full review

I didn't give this album enough credit when it was released, but it's actually holding up very well over time as one of my favorite MMJ albums. This is an incredibly well done pressing, spreading the album over two discs at 45. The physical packing is ... See full review

Really solid sounding pressing of the 94 classic. I was worried when I saw clear wax, but it sounds plenty good enough for me. Tracks are nicely spaced and the beats sound full. I recommend getting this version.

So I've never loved how much music they are cramming onto one disc for every reissue of this album that's been done, but I finally bit the bullet and gave this one a shot because I love this album, and you know what? Not bad at all. My only complaint is ... See full review

This is a must have for anyone into this vein of music. This has to be my favorite stoner/garage rock album I've heard in the last year, and I'm pissed it took me so long to listen to it. The pressing sounds fantastic, and the disc itself is absolutely ... See full review

It's a shame that you can't appreciate this album in its own right without comparing their general sound to some other band. Almost all music sounds like something else, doesn't mean it isn't great. This is a fantastic record.
posted a review of Vince Staples - Big Fish Theory. about 1 year ago
Very interesting way to release this on vinyl. A single disc of regular vinyl would have made a ton of sense and been much easier for every party involved, but that ain't what they did. Instead we got two picture discs for 36:04 of music.

First off, the ... See full review

I bought this album on a hunch after seeing some chatter online, and ehhhhh yikes. Wow, I almost want to just throw this thing in the trash. First, the disc is horribly warped, and since the jacket is pristine, I have to assume this was just pressing ... See full review

So glad I snagged one of these on a whim. Such a great EP. The sound is great, although I've played my copy so many times I think I've introduced some extra surface noise. No offense to the Escapism EP series, but for me this is by far his best work.

My copy has no playing issues and sounds fantastic. Zero vocal distortion and great full sound with the album generously spaced out over 2 discs. This is the kind of pressing that Kendrick albums deserve. Oh, and my cover artwork is not blurry at all. In ... See full review

Space Jam was a huge part of my childhood, and this soundtrack was one of the first CDs I ever owned. I was elated to see this thing on the RSD list, and I had to have one. After a couple listens now, this pressing is passable, but certainly doesn't go ... See full review

The fact that this exists baffles and elates me. I love the A side. Basically a great, full sounding cut of "Captive of the Sun" with a dope Bun B verse inserted in the middle to extend the track. I have always loved this track on Human Performance and ... See full review

Fantastic EP from Ivy Lab. I love the title track, "Spooky Dub," and "U Smart." A great 20+ minute listen from start to finish. As always for 20/20 releases, the pressing job is aces and sounds incredible. I really like the artwork of this one too. A ... See full review

Interesting. I have somewhere around 20, 30 picture discs, and I would say this is close to the worst sounding. Right up there with my Hot Topic press of the Lion King soundtrack. It's a novelty pressing. Doubt I have a bad copy as I received it brand ... See full review

It was made to order through his kickstarter, and I don't think much if any speculative copies were made. Don't think it was too many more copies than the 328 backers. We had to wait 6 months or so for these to get made and finally get to us. Godspeed ... See full review
