The only major ones I can find that really annoy me are pretty much the whole Monster song crackling in my headphones and how Swizz Beatz gets cut off abrubtly in the middle when he says "middle fingers in the air [stop] if you don't really care".

That So Appalled clip was intentional, to make it sound more old school.
At least thats what i read.

Monster has always been the biggest issue for me. I found it hard to believe a producer like Kanye would allow the track to sound as crappy as it did.

Really? I always wonder why they didn't record it again.

This isnt mastering fault.

The engineer has cut the vocals like that and clearly its good enuff for kanye. As a matter of fact im not even sure if he just pronounces it that way bcus i never paid attention to it. Fans just may be reaching


U really dont what mastering is? U dont add anything while mastering, u just fixin the levels and make sure everthing sounds as good as possible, basicly. The recording engineer who also records it mixes and adds things, mastering is whole different thing

I can't even listen to it anymore I just have to skip it as soon as the Ye  hook comes on.

btw as that guy said, it's not about the mastering.
My personal thought is that the hook was supposed to be different, and Swizz had already registered one that way. When they changed the hook, they didn't have time to recall SB or maybe they were fine with that version even though it was cut off :dno:

I noticed the Monster issue on first listen but on successive listens my ears have slowly adjusted to it sounding like it is.  Now, I can't even notice the difference between it and the GOOD Friday version.

The volume levels on a lot of the songs are ****ed up.  There's clipping all over the place too.

On monster the deep vocal sample has static and lost in the world can't be to high on the studio beats,

The Good Friday version was cleaner but there was less bass, but the piano thing sounded smooth too

For me all the tracks are just fine. Don't really see why everyone's complaining.   :dno:

DIAND is the most bothering track for me. There are ticking sounds through the whole song.
