My copy sounds great as well ... quiet, dynamic, flat

I guess the pressing is hit or miss. Some others here are claiming it sounds horrible and skips, but on my setup (LP120) it plays absolutely perfect. Dead silent, absolutely no sibalance, no skips. Has a slight warp, but it's extremely minor and doesn't affect play at all. In fact, it's one of the best sounding records in my collection.

EDIT: It might be worth noting that my copy has a much more "vibrant" or "neon" orange color, than the pictures here show. I guess there are two different pressings of this limited version?

Echoing what a couple of of others have said. Frankly, the sound was so bad I didn't even finish playing through the entire thing. Regret getting the colored version. Guess we got the bad batch

Finally got around to listening (and recording) my copy. Perfectly clear right through (a little bit of hiss on 's' words but might be down to static on my part), only one small pop during D3 which needed a brush over to get it to play through without skipping. Great album and a great pressing!

Hewn of lovely rich orange vinyl, the colour of this record reminds me of my favourite fizzy drink, which is Fanta by the way. I drink it whenever I can, even though my mam says it is very bad for my teeth and my gums!!

My pressing is garbage. Surface noise. Skips repeatedly. Very disappointed.

My copy of disc 1 has very noticeable and repeating noise, like a pattern of about two seconds all throughout but more noticeable on side A. The overall compressed nature of the music somewhat mitigates this but it is very annoying. Disc 2 is much better but noise still noticeable.

My press is terrible Every side has a song with jumps, and it's annoying.... i will go for the black vinil version...

I couldn’t agree more with most of these reviews. This pressing is exceptional.

Given how abysmal most Radiohead pressings have been for me I was nervous about receiving another dud-- but praise the many-faced god this is a clean pressing of an excellent solo effort from Mr. Yorke. Excellent from start to finish.
