    Ive heard the same thing about CMW sound quality. I got mine at hhv but wont receive it until next week or so.

    I mentioned earlier in this thread that I thought the CMW sounded fairly good. After listening to it several times, I stand by that thought but want to qualify it a bit. This absolutely should have been remastered for 2LP. It really suffers from the whole album on single vinyl. It could even sound better than it does as single LP had they spent more time with it.

    But I would not say it sounds "bad" in any way. You won't want to mix it in the club but for listening at home, it's fine. I always wonder what kind of set up people who say any record sounds horrible are listening to when they review it. I am no audiophile by any stretch but your setup will color how you feel about the sound of any record.

    My 2 cents are if you want it for playing out, skip it. If you want it to listen to at home, well the CD probably still sounds better. But if you collect vinyl and have the first two CMW and just like listening to vinyl, it will do just fine.

    Thanks for the info, wish I copped it whilst I had the chance as its now out of stock at Sounds Of The Universe ahhhhh.

    At least I can enjoy their first two albums, might spin Straight Checkn 'Em in a bit.

    I have the original promo of Music to Drive By and it's quiet. It's not a bad pressing per say but like all of you know Hip Hop albums this long would sound much louder with a 2LP pressing when the bass grooves have room to move. I spent a pretty penny on the OG promo years ago, I'm sure for the money they are asking for it now it's well worth buying this RSD reissue if you must have it on record. I'm also guessing that the OG pressing price will eventually drop now that it's no longer hard to find on vinyl (or it should anyways.) I'm not about to buy the RSD reissue to compare the two but I can imagine there is not much to gain sound-quality wise from paying more for the original promo 1LP.

I too was sick of Illmatic but this is a completely different beast and a refreshing take. Despite your first inclinations there is surprisingly nothing corny or forced about an entire orchestra playing strings to "Life's a Bitch" Honestly this record was so well done and sounds so nice it happily reminded me of why I buy records in the first place.

    That said, there was one record I was MUCH more excited to grab. The guy behind me literally growled like a rabid animal when I nabbed it but I got up at 5:30 to stand in line specifically for this record so I don't feel too bad for him. First come first served applies to many things in life and with records that are in demand it's no different.

    Baby Huey - The Story of Baby Huey (2LP Run Out Groove Pressing with bonus material)



    This 2LP pressing of Baby Huey contains not only a much better master of the original album but it also includes an entire disc of never before released instrumental songs related to and not related to the Baby Huey Story. This bonus disc is FIRE, I'm telling you guys. I had the cheap $8 reissue of this album and now I'll gift that to my son because THIS Run Out Groove pressing is 10x more enjoyable. If you only have a cheap reissue like myself and really like that album you may want to consider seeking this for the huge step up in sound quality and bonus material that is extra fat and funky.
    thanks for this post.. i picked up a Baby Huey off the dogs. Hella DoPe. Also copped a Nas and though its a great package of a great performabce and im very happy to have it on wax ... it sounds a bit flat on my stez. Still very enjoyable.
    thanks rchecka.
