This is really really not bad at all! Coming from someone who has owned the original 2000 U.K. Pressing I had been extremely wary of anything but parlophone, tbh, but I'm pleasantly surprised.

My copy is fine, also Side 3 sounds good as the others do. Is it a digital copy taken from CD? Dunno, sincerely.

A lot of noise on this one but not intolerable. Music still sounds pretty sweet but it comes with some pops and cracks.

I bought this version but disk 1 was very warped. It was very quiet though but the excessive warp put me off and I returned it. I know of other people of hoffman who have a warped disk 1 (maybe it was a bad batch?).

Noisy at times even after cleaning, otherwise fine, don't have an original pressing to compare it to

Some tracks were quiet, others had some deal of clicks, like Kid A and Motion Picture Soundtrack.

I wonder when will XL properly reissue this record, along with the others.

Mine was pretty shit. A big bump pressed on side 1.

Bought mine from Amazon Canada and it doesn't have the EMI identifications. Is identical to this release in everything but those EMI stuff.
Anyone else?

Bought from B&N, came VERY noisy. I almost returned it, but after 3 rounds in the spin clean and a lot of rinsing and hand cleaning, I finally got it to sound acceptable if it wasn't brand new. Look for the older versions of this unless you're prepared for a lot of cleaning, or maybe if you have a RCM (VPI 16.5, Record Doctor V). The audio quality is OK, just a lousy pressing that came very dirty.

My copy is extremely noisey throughout the entire album. Very disappointing. Purchased from B&N.
