Just found this still sealed at my local. Still in bins from RSD over a year ago... sounds awesome, mine is perfectly flat, even after being in a bin for months. Sounds great, but have to agree it sounds like CD copy.

My copy is flat and sounds wonderful. Based on reviews, it would seem that this reissue is the best among the three reissued Sundays albums? I have an original pressing of the debut album and am still hoping to get a decent copy of Blind.

Listening right now.... Sounds perfectly good and the record shows no warping.

I love the reissue on clear vinyl, mine sounds perfect on a Dual CS5000 turntable.

They know there is a tremendous demand for their output to be re-released and still nothing has been done.

It's certainly more playable and less stupendously shiteous than the 2017 Blind repress, but it is definitely a thin, tinny sound, almost definitely from digital or the like and not from any master pressing.
I did notice some minor warpy-sounding segments in the middle of both sides, way more brief segments than on Blind....but it makes me wonder if Fugutive has an issue with the weight of their pressings or something with the center of a pressing (Blind's Side A goes off the rails completely about halfway through.)
Having said all that, it is playable, and it's a fine placeholder until I can fork out $400 for the original, or until a more humane and ear-pleasing repressing comes into existence.

My copy is flat and quiet for transparent vinyl. I do notice some sibilance but overall it sounds great. My catridge is shure v15 III elliptical. Perhaps that tames some of the brightness that is heard on CD.

My copy turned out very nice. Perfectly flat. Perhaps a little bright, but good sounding overall.

at least my copy isn't off center and warped like the copy of Blind that dropped (like a pile flaming shit) last RSD. However, the sound is compressed and thin - and I am playing my records on a nice MicroSeiki from the 80s with a brand new stylus. I bet this album would sound great on a Crosley or a Fisher Price record player. If there are truely going to be band sanctioned reissues next year then I suppose the copy I bought today is a place holder.
This is the last "Universal Special Markets" release I am ever going to buy. They don't seem to give a shit about the records they press and they don't even include a photocopy of any credits (i'm not asking for a nice glossy inner sleeve but for fucks sake, some information on the recording would be great- i'd even settle for a cd sized booklet).
