I'm on my second copy of this now as first was full of pops and crackles, much like an old record - nothing too distracting but given the excellence of the overall sound quality it was frustrating. The second copy was marginally better but still has a pretty consistent crackle throughout - particularly on side A2. If I'm honest though, I've come to accept that its never going to be perfectly silent (unless you're one of the lucky ones!) and the music itself; the quality of the soundstage - which is wide and open - has drawn me in so much that I can bear the flaws, perhaps now even feel it to be part of this haunting score. And yes, in places this is genuinely disturbing - beautiful but disturbing. Thom Yorke has done a wonderful job. Honestly I get the feeling that this was meant to be heard and experienced in this format and the overall packaging is excellent. I would suggest that if you can tolerate a gentle crackling (like an old haunted LP) that can only be heard in the quietest moments then go ahead and grab yourself a copy. A bit of quality control wouldn't go amiss though.

noisy pressing. especially at busy vocal passages. cartridge aligned properly.
i even want to give it a deep clean in ultrasonic cleaner.
those of you who find it quiet, are you listening with headphones or speakers? Speaker might not be sensitive enough to those kind of noises.

Could someone (who bought from the US) please create an entry for the US pressing (if it's actually different, as noted below)? It might help in determining if the pressing issues being reported are predominantly coming from one plant or not.

My copy is noisey as fuck! Pre-ordered from the UK from the W.A.S.T.E webstore. Pretty disappointing :(
The music sounds amazing, but this pressing does not do it justice. Like another person said... swirling noise on rotations... especially bad in the right channel.

US copies were not pressed at Optimal, I believe. The matrix runout etchings do not include the Optimal code listed above (BI33115). I cannot find where the US copies were pressed at, but I believe this may be why some have excellent-sounding copies (the Optimal ones) and some don't (the US-pressed copies). Again, this version is listed as a UK and Europe version, not a US version.

Sounds great! Very little surface noise and the pressing sounds really clear. Happy with this version.

Happy to report another copy that sounds great, with impressive sonics, an open soundstage, and no intrusive surface noise/imperfections. Also, an absolutely gorgeous score and some of Thom’s best work.

Mine sounds wonderful, warm and clear with few pops and crackles.
