My copy of this release included two slightly warped records but play is unaffected. Super silent vinyl. The soundstage is huge. Tones are warm but highly detailed. Vocals are natural and out front. Great bottom end and linear mix throughout. Punchy mid-bass, crystal clear mids and highs. This is an awesome mix and this pressing is equally good. Fantastic stereo effects. I highly recommend this release. (Rega Planar 3, Exact 3 cart, PSE Studio SL, Linn LK85, Linn interconnects, Linn Katans).

This is the most incredible pressing of any album I've ever heard. Wow. Worth waiting for Parlophone !!

My edition is this UK-Original one with Cat#, "LPKIDA 1". But hand-etched scratched Matrix part are strikeout just like Is there anyone who has Cat#, "LPKIDA 1" and hand-etched scratched Matrix part aren't strikeout? How about test pressing one? Please tell me...

For any Americans out there. Will you be ordering from Europe in the hopes of getting an Optimal pressing vs Rainbow in a hopes of not repeating the AMSP debacle?

Just picked up a copy of this from a shop for £22.50. So chuffed!

Looks like the new reissues from XL are just the old capitol stock with a sticker with a new barcode. I would avoid. I'm returning my copy.

My copy of Kid A (vinyl 2X10) has an obscure misprint. The label for side D has been replaced by another side C label, so the side C label has been printed twice (once on side C and again on side D). I was hoping that someone could shed some light on this because I've done a lot of research on this record and I haven't found anything like it online. It could be the only one. And if it is indeed the only one in existence, then I need to know how to price it. Thanks!

I've got the two 10 re-issue i really would prefer a different issue.Come on this is such a great release.Do it properly or let us vinyl snobs rather drown in misery

hi guys. You're talking about differences on the barcodes, texts lines and all these, but the most important thing is missing : is there a difference of quality of the sound in these releases ? i'm planning to (finally) buy this album, and i was wondering if the Capitol reissue is ok, or do i have to save money to get an original Parlophone....?

UK:LPKIDA1 is the true original....anything else is a repress or was not around until after UK:LPKIDA1 was released. Basically if you walked into a record store on the day of release, you received the UK:LPKIDA1 pressing (at least I did). Sometime soon after they stopped printing these and switched to the more common one that you find today new on Ebay. Parlophone still presses these EU versions to this day. They have a different bar code number as well, and won't have "UK:LPKIDA1 written in the bar will just say UK:

In 2008 this was reissued again by Capitol. Different cat#/bar code on this one as well.
