Anguish and despair rightfully earn more Grammys, Emmys, Tonys, and Pulitzer Prizes than sweetness and light ever do, but West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar is already on elevated masterwork number two, so expect his version of the sobering truth to sound like a party at points.

To Pimp a Butterfly is a densely packed, dizzying rush of unfiltered rage and unapologetic romanticism, true-crime confessionals, come-to-Jesus sidebars, blunted-swing sophistication, scathing self-critique and rap-quotable riot acts. Roll over Beethoven, tell Thomas Jefferson and his overseer Bull Connor the news: Kendrick Lamar and his jazzy guerrilla hands just mob-deeped the new Jim Crow, then stomped a mud hole out that ass.

Avoid the in-house GZ cut EU pressing and get the US pressing cut by Scott Sedillo and pressed at RTI instead. THAT'S a FANTASTIC sounding record. I've used it to test review equipment before - it's that good.
Mr.Champions
jp_fal There are no copies on Discogs with SS in the runout or a Scott Sedilo credit. RTI pressings are To Pimp A Butterfly and To Pimp A Butterfly. Probably because no ones added it yet.

smurphy031 I have a 2015 EU press and 2015 US press. I think the EU is far superior, specifically in dealing with sibilance.The US pressing I have may not be the one you referenced, are there any indicators for me to find out who pressed it? Who pressed it doesnt matter much but you can do that too. If it has SS in the deadwax then its the copy Lui mentions.

The sound on this pressing really is amazing. One of the best sounding records I own.

Really nice pressing. On my copy the matrix readings are:4731100-A 135561E1/D4731100-B 135561E2/H4731100-C 135561E3/H4731100-D 135561E4/H
Umi
Not the biggest fan of this album, or Kendrick in general, but this was a purchase I'll never regret. This pressing sounds absolutely fantastic. King Kunta is smooth as all hell.
MarF
really really great pressing of this wonderful album, very bassy and full of life! My only problem with this pressing is the same as whats been stated by others, the front cover image is very low quality, though with the quality of the rest of the pictures, it might have been intentional? Anyway, beautiful pressing, highly recommend!
Painwind
This is amazing! I could not be more pleased to have one of my favorite albums on such a great pressing.
Mightdragon
The EU vinyl press is very nicely done. The only "problem" I have is the overall artwork picture quality - it almost looks like a bootleg or a re-press taken from the CD.
Arar
Agreed, the mastering / pressing on this one is outstanding, but the front cover looks like a blown up jpeg. The back seems more detailed so maybe it's on purpose? The inside gatefold on the other hand looks nice with (semi-)transparent script printed over the liner notes and even some braille.
Iraraeal
Sounds so fucking awesome, really nice dynamics and space awareness hearing things I never heard on the digital version sounds a lot more live and fuller, the American version suffered as far as I know.
Phallozs Dwarfs
There's a nearly invisible transparent inscription on the picture of Kendrick in the topleft of the inner sleeve that says: "Thank Yoy God Family Pt. 2"
salivan
The Braille letters in the gatefold say: "A KENDRICK BY LETTER BLANK LAMAR"
Jelar
Really good pressing of what has already become a modern classic. Tracks like King Kunta sound full and warm. Makes it worth the wait for this! Like GKMC it comes with plain white inners and sadly no download code.
