My excitement about snagging one of these on RSD just went from a 10 down to a 2. Here's the rundown on what's wrong with mine: Terrible distorted "sizzling" hi-hats on songs Side 1, songs 4 & 5 and Side 2, songs 1, 2, & 5.... Side 1 runout does not stop, so the needle will travel onto label and could ruin the stylus if you don't catch it in time.... Bubbled up label on Side 2 (lifts center of record up unnaturally). How could they f--- this up so bad? The sound is actually pretty good in most other aspects (Harriet's voice sounds consistently lovely), and some songs (like "Here's Where The Story Ends") are perfect. The vinyl is really quiet. But whatever happened to the mix that blew out the hi-hats to such a degree is mystifying. I'm sure sound engineers out there might have an idea what went wrong. I'm going to try emailing the company as oglja33 suggested, and ask for a replacement. So tragic an outcome for such an album that is so perfect musically.

My complaint sent to both addresses of Jim Worthen of Seattle-based Fugitive Recordings have gone unanswered, so far. Have you experienced the same?
I’m calling on all of you who have spent your hard earned money to keep hammering this label rep with your messages — DAILY. Demand his attention and proper response; don’t give up!
Sure, I could just sell my once played cp. at a markdown and be done with this meds, but that would be wrong, in my book. I’d be knowingly dumping a bum product onto the next guy or gal, not cool at all.
No, gonna stay the course, not gonna let another big business get away with crassness at our expense. You with me on this?

How infuriating it would be to discover we (as purchasers of this release) were just lab rats for this initial run so they can iron out the kinks for the mass release based on our complaints. They get our money and free qc.

Wednesday evening P.S.T. 2nd May 2018:
May I be so bold as to warn browsers of this reissue:

Stop!!! Do Not Buy This Fugitive Recordings Product. Repeat - Do Not Buy Patronize This Label.
It Is An Egregiously Defective Product (mastering-wise, not necessarily related to the pressing aspect.)
Wait Until Fugitive Recordings Does The Remastering All Over (a long shot, admittedly).
Wait Until They Press Corrected Discs For The Public.
Until Then, Do Not Buy This Label's Product, Regardless Of Price Or Scarcity.

Extremely disappointing. My own fault, I read the reviews of last year's Sundays RSD release. It couldn't be that bad could it?, and not for a second year. In a row? Yes it is. Not exactly unlistenable, but an infuriating one for sure.

To those who are disappointed with the awful Sundays debut RSD re-issue, please send an email to: umgcustomersupport@umusic.com to let them know about this issue. The agent I spoke with said this would alert them to the poor quality of the pressing, but who knows if anything will come of it.

My copy sounds terrible at any volume. I have the "Can't Be Sure" 12" (Rough Trade 1989) and there is no comparison- it's warm, clear and spacious. And the art for the re-issue looks just about as bad as the album sounds. So disappointing.

Yep. The last two tracks of side one are distorted. Also track one and five on side two is more of the same. It makes me sad since some of the tracks sound fantastic, e.g, "My Finest Hour". This RSD release is a real disappointment.

I'm ok with the sound of this (although I'm not very familiar with the album outside Here's Where the Story Ends), but side one does NOT stop the needle at the end. It just blasts on by and scrapes across the label, so WATCH OUT.

If there were a bad pressing to be had, I would have got it! This record sounds great & I totally recommend. On 180 gram, black vinyl and quiet playback. Sleeve is nothing special, similar to a Plain Records release. Get this!
