Initial copies (which mine is one of) are mispressings. The cd starts with heavy rock sounds followed by a crowd applauding and shouting for more. After 44 seconds this fades out and "Everything in its right place" begins. As a result of this, all the track cues are 44 seconds too early. So if you skip to e.g. Optimistic, you first get the last 44 seconds of Treefingers.
At first, when I hadn't noticed the cue problem I thought that these heavy rock chords in the beginning were put there on purpose and symbolized the end of the "rockband" Radiohead and the start of the "electronic band" Radiohead, which in my opinion definitely adds to the sphere of the album. Therefore I cherish this mispressing...

I am a big fan of all things warp records, if KID a was on warp it would not be out of place on the label.
i love it some of it sounds like boards of canada and some sounds like autechre.
i very good album and something new for rock music people to get into.
