My copy had to be cleaned, had a lot of crackle, but sounds good after that. Still a little crackle, not perfect by any means.

Picked this up for the 20th anniversary, the more rocking tracks sound great but the more atmospheric tracks like "Motion Picture Soundtrack" and "Treefingers" have tons of crackle and pops even after a spin wash. Sprung for the UK import from the EU as some have suggested and it made all the difference in the world, dead silent and gorgeous. Definitely go for the import.

my first disc has the b-side label on both sides but other than that, this pressing sounds amazing on my set up

The copy I just bought came with 2 of the same disc, Delta and Gamma. Both are the exact same. Is this worth keeping or should I return it? Is this considered a rarity or collectible?

Were these pressed at a us plant? The optimal credit is from the sleeve right?

My copy sounds fan-fucking-tastic. Easily my best sounding Radiohead record (In Rainbows, The Bends, and OK Comp).

Amazing sound quality, one of the best sounding vinyl in my collection

Nope. Still pressed by Kellogg’s. Snap crackle and pop. My local store just ordered and got in from the warehouse. So the posters below got a lucky batch. It doesn’t help the band insists on damaging stiff cardboard inners

Just got a new copy and I'd have to agree that it seems they fixed the error. Sounds great, no issues. Buy this version with confidence.

I agree with recent posts, got the US version due to a listing error, and gave it a spin anyway ... sounds great. Quiet, warm and dynamic. I decided to just keep it.
