This got some dope tracks indeed.. And I belive they are new recordings too.. If they really are from '88 I believe they've been remastered..

Yeah they're clear as hell - IF they're from 88 (which I don't believe) they are def remastered.  But even some of the production style is too advanced for 88.  I mean Black Sheep wasn't even around in 88, and they're name checkin "Top Shelf 88" on a couple joints.

I fuckin love this album.

But why would they do this album and only release it in Japan?

I honestly can't say, unless it's got something to do with sample clearance? 

I can't quit listening to this album.  It came out of nowhere and it's fucking awesome.

This shit went totally under the radar. Snuck up on me like a ninja and hit me like ton of bricks.
