No issues with my copy. Fairly quiet; no problems with side C. I also have the 2016 XL pressing, and while that version might have a slightly more dynamic sound field, this one is by no means the disaster it seemed to be for others. A more-than-acceptable pressing.

So, so close to getting it in 45rpm... why this?


January 24, 2018

This is an awful pressing. Mine sounds bland and lifeless, there's just no punch in songs like "Optimistic." What a shame, it's one of my favorite albums.

Stickers swapped on 2nd disc. Sticker for side C is on side D and vice-versa. A Manufacturers Error.

Bought this capital reissue and had the same noise on side 3 with optimistic. these capital reissues are total digital masters likely from the cd. don't waste your money on the reissues because its a total crapshoot if you will get a listenable copy or not. on ok computer, kid a, and amnesiac i played a song off the reissue first then immediately played the original vinyl. make no mistake, original is the way to go.

Where is this pressing sourced from? Is it of the exact same quality of the original pressings or is there something inferior about this pressing's quality? (common defects like side C's notwithstanding)


January 22, 2016

Mine sounds fine, no issues on side C as some have posted here. Nice, clean copy with no distortion, very warm sounding. Sorry to hear others have had problems, I must have got lucky.

i do not rember if the noise was on side three, but i can say this is not the most silent and mild vinyl ever heard during last years. surface noise is a little constant between the silent passages. worthless for the price and the what is written on the label.

Yup the noise is there on side 3. Too bad... Its not that noticeable once the song starts. But still.. Pretty disappointing. It's a soft and continuous hiss in the left channel

Record is nowhere near as bad as people make it out to be
