To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Unfortunately had to mark this down as I have had an issue with the quality of the vinyl rather than the music itself which is great. First album on vinyl would not play properly and neither would its replacement. 3 copies all with the same fault have given up which is a shame because the music is great.
Guru's been gone nearly ten years now but it's good to hear that there was so much decent unused stuff in the archives. If you're new to Gang Starr, are tempted by the reviews/backstory and you don't know their old stuff, then first treat yourself to Moment of Truth and work backwards. There are load of other voices involved on this album and it's been done with care and respect - a few excruciating moments notwithstanding. Definitely a good and worthwhile album.
