Sounds exceptionally good. Everything about the sound of this record is perfect. It's just I've tried two copies now and both are horribly warped. C'mon man! I really dig this record and the presentation was excellent but I can't throw this on my turntable with guests over and have it wobbling around like a lopsided tire, that's embarrassing. Damn I really want this on vinyl tho.
My copy is also flat and wow, what fantastic sound! I hesitated buying this LP on RSD, but glad I finally came to my senses and acquired one. Hopefully the third time was a charm if you decided to try again.
I got a nice flat copy from Pop Market, and they're probably the worst case scenario. I gotta think you just had some bad luck; there's flat copies out there.
Right on. Glad someone got a good copy. I tried two records each from a different record store here in Southern California, both were warped so I just gave up. I have two other records from the culture factory label and both are pressed flawlessly don't know why I had bad luck with this one but may try ordering on off here and see what happens.
I just got this. It's perfectly flat. Traveled quite a distance, so pretty good to stay perfectly flat. Were both of your copies from the same shop?Agree that this sounds perfect.
