Incredible package, probably my favorite rotm in recent memory. Thick gatefold jacket, printed inners and a cool insert. Side A sounds amazing, I’ll update if i have any issues with the other sides.

Really nice presentation. Gatefold tip on sleeve with printed inner pockets. Coke bottle green is beautiful and sounds great. These prices tho, yeesh

I agree with the reviews on here. I grew up with this album and simply cannot fathom it sounding better than this pressing. It’s amazing really. Get one if you’re reading this and don’t have it already.

This mixtape absolutely slaps, surprised this is still readily available. A dark, psychedelic and potent mix from El Producto that only gets better with time. My copy sounds great and the bass rattles my windows.

Underrated future release imho, surprised copies are still so cheap. This is from his prime period and pairs well with ds2. My pressing is silent and dynamic.

I think the repress was to cover unfulfilled orders. I ordered one in April and it just shipped.

Flat and silent and oh boy what a beautiful pressing, the colors match the cover art perfectly. Glad to have this show up at my doorstep today. Play it loud.

Just going to say that Ka gets his records pressed at RTI, they all sound fantastic. I have several pressings of his, including this, and they are all flawless. Not sure if its worth the prices on here, but if you do get a copy, its quality

Woah, this disappeared in the States, it was readily available when I copped it a couple months ago. Probably the most consistent Roc album and a quality pressing, got a gem of a Ka verse on it too. Grab a copy if you see one

Absolutely fantastic pressing of this lost series of recordings. These are some of my favorite Lee songs and I've been a fan for a long time. Mostly just him and a guitar. A very lofi feel that is actually well recorded and mastered. If you like Lee,... See full review

This album sounds great, for those complaining of Actual Facts being absent, it wasn’t on the original vinyl press either.

Amazing pressing, was feeling a bit miffed at vmp for the recent price increase, but then this showed up. Great job vmp, now get you business ethics in line.

Mine sounds great, really nice separation and the low end rattles my windows. I have a few bubbles on the second disc but nothing that affects play.

My copy of this sounds absolutely amazing, just a delight for the ears. In these trying times this kind of soundtrack keeps things light. Wonderful pressing.

If you like your reggae soulful and full of funk then this compilation is worth the price of admission. An incredible collection of tracks that I was lucky to run across 15 years ago. I still spin this regularly and the vinyl sounds awesome. If you... See full review

Wow this pressing bangs so hard. Big win for VMP. Mine is flat, silent and dynamic. Not much galaxy effect, pretty much orange.

What a wonderful surprise this album is, i picked it up at my local on a whim. Its a very well curated collection that will see uncountable spins here. The pressing is flawless on my system.

Just picked this up, the color is a translucent tan. All tracks are on A side, the B side has a pretty cool etching. Extra tracks are rad. Pressing sounds great. Nice package overall.

For me this album is all about track two, just an amazing piece, love when the helicopter and cop cars go by. My copy sounds great, but the vinyl came scuffed up from the printed inner sleeves. It doesn't affect sound quality, but was just something I... See full review

Such an amazing pressing with a thick tip on sleeve. This is what reissues are all about. The custard colored vinyl is slick and fitting for the album. Gangster salsa.

This pressing is surprisingly great. Silent vinyl with a really loud and well defined mix. Nice low end. The poly lined inner is appreciated. Glad to have this in the stacks.

I’ve got this one. Its only 11 tracks and contains two that don’t belong, good reggae but out of place here.

I have this pressing and the mofi 2x45rpm, both pressed at RTI. This one is really good for the price, heavy wax with a clear soundstage. RTI is pretty consistent on their pressings, I have several other HQ-180 releases and all sound fantastic. I spin... See full review

I’m happy with this pressing and appreciate the replica of the original sleeve, peel banana and all. Mastering sounds good to me, nice levels but retains the lo fi quality of the recording.

I live in the US and couldn’t find a copy, so I ordered one of these and it sounds amazing. Glad to cop one of the overseas version.

Great sounding pressing! I've got a bunch of colored vinyl and this is one of the coolest looking and best sounding. The vinyl is silver galaxy, it looks a bit like pooled liquid metal. I added a photo of my copy to this listing.

This album never gets old. Lots of classic dub and reggae mixed together here. The pressing sounds great given the fact that Madlib samples a bunch of dirty old records. Put this on for an instant good time. Bless up.

My copy of this sounds good. Minimal surface noise throughout, side B ends with a few clicks. The element that seems more pronounced on the vinyl version is the soundstage. This pressing has a very live band feel. Lots of interesting ambient noises... See full review

I have always been impressed by these Stars of the Lid reissues, the only complain I have is the card stock printed inners scuffed the vinyl. Mine are now in poly lined inners. Beautiful music, I have no issues.
