Mine sounds good, little bit of surface noise but not enough to take you out of the music at all.

Phew, after reading below comments I was worried. Cleaned the LPs before playing; store them in static-free sleeves. All 4 sides sound terrific! Vinyl gods must be smiling down on me ;}

Finally decided to take another stab at this since buying the white American wax and getting severely burned. *Very* glad I did. I picked up the standard black and after a complete play through I got a clean one. A pop here and there, but I still need to deep clean it. They’re out there, it’s just a gamble. Happy hunting!

I picked this up today as it was the last Radiohead vinyl I didn't have. I took it off and cleaned my stylus several times before I realized that it wasn't my stylus being dirty that made it sound warbled on True Love Waits, and the crackly surface noise throughout almost all of it. Ridiculous. My Kid A has similar issues. As does King of Limbs. The UK pressing of Ok Not OK is the only vinyl I have heard of theirs that sounds flawless. I guess I will have to wait for and hope the repress will be better. Favorite alltime band btw... so this is disappointing.

how do i know if i have the "optimal" pressing or the "rainbow" pressing. i'm not clear on the difference.

Added some replies and comments below but as a public service announcement figured should write a review. I have gone through two copies of a batch received by local store in January 2018. Still has all the issues described below. On top of crackles in the quietest moments of the quietest tracks LP1 is off center, hole too small. I ran thru my Okki Nokki a couple times and made a slight difference but not enough - and the crap coming off these pressings is ridiculous. Turns the clear liquid a murky grey.

I bought this somewhat recently, and don't have any of the issues described in the reviews below. However considering the awful cardboard inner sleeves the records come in, I wouldn't be surprised if its just luck of the draw.

i cleaned my copy with near mint record cleaner,and the crap that came out on the stylus and the brush afterwards was horrific

I was mostly happy with my copy on the first listen however there was a crackling sound during True Love Waits which was disappointing. It sounds great in parts but the ocassional surface noise is frustrating.

Great album, awful pressing for my black copy. Bad surface noise throughout pretty much. Real disappointment. The sound to me is also kind of flat, not particularly vibrant and lacking a bit of detail. Luckily, I also have a 24 bit 44Hz FLAC copy which sounds excellent.
