I have a capitol release without a gold capitol vaults sticker. I think it’s the 2003 version listed on here. Anyway I can distinguish them for sure,?

Just ordered the XL pressing of this one, cuz this one is absolute rubbish. Surface noise everywhere. Bollocks!

Side B is plagued by surface noise on my copy too. Other sides sound amazing!

My Capitol/EMI pressing sounds amazing. No issues. I also have the original Parlophone pressing and find them indistinguishable. Maybe there were only issues with the first run? My real wish is that Kid A and Amnesiac would be reissued on 12" vinyl instead of those 10" versions, but looks like no...

I've had my copy for several years now and just went to check side B. My copy sounds GREAT! And I have an old needle I should replace, and it still sounds fine. Very fortunate.

I was worried about another shitty pressing but I lucked out.
And side D is such a great bunch radiohead

Unfortunately I bought this new today without looking at the reviews. Surface noise on side B - as others have said - is inexcusable. Several pops on side C so far. I wish I would have ordered an earlier pressing online instead of picking this one up in the store. This is the perfect edition for someone without a turntable.

My rating is for the record - not this pressing.

I just want to add my voice to the discussion and say that I bought this new tonight and it sounds pretty damn good! Not much surface noise at all, on any of the sides. I was expecting the vinyl equivalent of hell, especially when i flipped the records over....but all i got was some occasional crackles and pops, nothing major and no warps or other vinyl demons. Superb album, just superb!

The surface noise on side B is absolutely inexcusable. 3rd copy same problem, same swelling white noise.
Capitol's fault.

I think these are all bad. I've been through 3 new copies. They all have terrible surface noise on side b and the spindle on record 2 is horribly tight.
