Picked this up today and I have to say it sounds pretty good. I don't have another pressing to compare but the sound quality is very good. There is some static though, not major but pretty typical.

Continuing with the below comment....and how does it compares to the original 12" 2011 pressing? I'm in dubio as in which one to buy. Thx!

Can someone review this if you own? I want to find out how it compares to the original 10" pressings.

Just got these beautiful clear (GZ Media) records and they sound absolutely fantastic. Amazing clarity and separation and dead quiet (for the most part) when it's supposed to be... at least on sides A and B. NOW... if some ill-timed noise on sides C and D is going to drive you mad, avoid this pressing. But if you just write it off as part of the vinyl experience (as I do), buy em and enjoy! The separation, clarity and fullness on C and D is still very much present - you just gotta put up with a little bit of a noisy floor.

I got my copy a couple of months ago and it sounds great! I have not found any noise or marks. Beautiful album

I was determined to find a quiet noise-floor copy of this record and so I now have three copies (!) in my possession. In doing so, I've noticed there seems to be at least two separate pressings, based on what I can tell from the matrix run-outs. Here's the information I can provide about differences between the different versions:

VERY LOUD NOISE FLOOR:
(Pressed by GZ Media based on the matrix runout formula)
[All machine stamped, bottom of text facing spindle; records have 'sharp' outer edges]
Side One: 91880N1/C(B) ENDLESS BRANCHES
Side Two: 91880N2/B(A) UNCONTROLLABLE
Side Three: 91880N3/A(B) A NEVER ENDING MESH
Side Four: 91880N4/A(B) INTERTWINED IN TO EVERYTHING
Release: https://www.discogs.com/Radiohead-The-King-Of-Limbs/release/2851025

The parentheses are because of two copies I own w/ this machine-stamped, barely readable matrix, they have differing final letters coming after the '91880N#/' - these correspond to galvanoplasty. All the writing is in capital letters.

QUIET NOISE FLOOR:
(Pressed by Record Industry based on the matrix runout formula)
[All hand-etched, bottom of text facing outer edge; records have 'flat' outer edges]
Side One: 89184 1A TICK 001S Endless branches
Side Two: 89184 1B TICK 001S uncontrollable
Side Three: 89184 2C TICK 001S a never ending mesh
Side Four: 89184 1D TICK 001S intertwined in to everything
Release: https://www.discogs.com/Radiohead-The-King-Of-Limbs/release/8607579 (THIS RELEASE)

One other difference I noticed is in the CD packaging. The Record Industry version has a very faint, brownish reflective film over the package, while the GZ Media version does not. This is an extremely small difference and probably would be difficult to determine which it is unless you've seen both or are directly comparing them. Besides these differences, I wasn't able to find anything different between the blotter papers, newspapers, or outer OBD plastic. It would be very useful if others could mention how loud the noise floor is for their pressing. Hopefully this is helpful to some - unfortunately, if the GZ Media version is an intrinsically worse pressing, there's no way to tell until the OBD plastic is opened up and the matrices are examined. Cheers!

It may take a while but eventually, inevitably, people will come to realise that this is yet another top quality record from Radiohead. They've barely put a foot wrong from Kid A onwards and this is definitely no exception. It's beyond me, that anyone could really consider OK Computer to be a better album than this. Having finally conceded that Killing Joke are no longer relevant as a studio band (and it hurts me to say that) I'm left with the conclusion that Radiohead are just about the only band that still matters. Would love it if they could convince Scott Walker to produce them at some point in the near future.

I just got this and I luckily have not experienced any issues with my copy. It sounds fantastic on both sides.

I love this album, but at this point I've owned two copies of this version and both have had a tremendous amount of noise on side C - two of the songs that demand the most silence from the noise floor. Has anyone else had this experience - perhaps a common pressing defect?
