Just a semantics comment: Not a "repress", as someone entered for this entry. This 2018 version's matrices are totally different than the 2015 Warner (EU) version's. THAT one was cut at Abbey Road (making it a re-cut/reissue of the original 2001 issue), but not this one. So, "reissue" would be the proper term for the 2018 ish ; it's from the latest and third lacquer cutting.

Would someone please compare the sonics of these two reissues? I'm leaning toward the OOP, 2015 ish just for its gatefold sleeve, as opposed to this cheap, postcard stock, single sleeve. Is the former's now inflated price worth the trouble?

Finally got a copy of this reissue and I must say that this is an excellent sounding record! Clean, flat, and crisp. My copy had 2 different inner sleeves btw.

Lots of good reviews of Warner's 2015 Abbey Road cut / MPO pressed "Simple Things", which the price has increased for.

Any thoughts on the mastering and pressing quality for this 2018 New State pressing?

The identical inner sleeves were probably a mistake. Mine has two different ones, like the previous pressings, but with some updated info.

Excellent pressing! Almost no surface noice and very warm sound! My copy came with two of the same inner sleeves though.

Hopefully this wasn't manufactured by a dodgy pressing plant... Someone please share the runout info.
