I did grab it and I was pretty disappointed with the quality. I recommend avoiding this pressing.

This sounds fantastic... Unfortunately, mine was horrible warped out of the packaging and the first songs on each side are unlistenable as a result.

Huge PTA nut and fan of Jon Brion's scores so this was a must buy for me. Wanted to warn others that the vinyl is extremely noisy with static throughout much of the duration on every side. My 2nd LP also came somewhat warped and the pitch shifts as a ... See full review

Typo: "Who Think I Ain't Worth A Dollar". Has anyone heard this pressing? I'm considering grabbing it from eBay.

Imported this from France. Was surprised to find that Side B has a locked run-out groove.

So I recently purchased the EU 12” to compare against my NA 12”... I was surprised to find that the amount of space taken up by music on the record was far less than my NA and what is pictured here on this release page (with an inch or more larger runout ... See full review

Just snagged this bootleg at a local record store. I'm pleasantly surprised with the quality and this will certainly satisfy me until the album is officially reissued (if ever).

Warped and skips through first minute on Side C and D... Went through 2 copies from Amazon with identical problems.

So is this the only official vinyl release to include the standard version of "Gonna Leave You" vs the Spanish Version? Or is it just not marked as such on discogs?

There is only 16-Bit for the tape portion. I promise 24-Bit isn't necessary for the tape.

I guess it has more to do with the pressing plant. My experience, overall, is that the UK pressings are superior. No surface noise and seemingly better quality control. The US pressings are not bad by any means. I'm just a nut when it comes to records. I ... See full review

Interesting bootleg... The one thing that drives me crazy, however, is the image of Phil Selway holding a microphone and singing. This is on the front cover and each disc label.... Just...why?!
Some of the live versions are neat to have on vinyl... Some ... See full review

Mine arrived in perfect shape and sounds noticeably better than my blue vinyl... Didn't hear a single instance of surface noise on this EU pressing. The contents of the box are fantastic and worth the price alone in my opinion. This remaster still isn't ... See full review

That's true... I just seem to have had a lot of experience with noisy colored vinyl... Could be a placebo effect I suppose or maybe a variable in the quality of the pellets themselves. I don't claim to be an expert. Just hoping that my trend of silent ... See full review

I have all the 2016 XL reissues. They are all very good! Absolutely destroy any Capitol pressing. I only had a problem with the 12" North American pressing of Kid A. Went through a few of those before importing an EU pressing which is flawless. I also ... See full review

Just finished listening to the first two discs... I'm perfectly satisfied with this release in spite of it not being my favorite pressing of OK Computer. There is some surface noise on side B and D but nothing too distracting. As a rule of thumb, ... See full review

They were printed on different continents to my understanding. One in North America and the other in Europe. Maybe it was just bad luck but it seems unlikely that I would receive 4 poor NA versions and then strike gold with the first EU pressing. But if ... See full review

Not sure if it's because my copy is above the 30k mark but I am not very impressed at all... The top end is particular underwhelming (cymbal crashes sound like static)... A fair amount of surface noise but not enough to really distract. However, my ... See full review

Mine is easily amongst the highest quality records I own... And what is also funny is that the two Muse records I own are easily amongst the lowest quality pressings I own (Absolution and Black Holes).

Clicking on Side A for me. Not a bad listen, music-wise... I'm still kind of put off by the Dylan/Reed impersonation... But he could grow on me, I suppose. Pretty looking colored wax as is customary with these VMP ROTM releases.

Glad to see someone found a way to distinguish US versus EU pressings by the placement of the XL logo on the bottom-right of the back cover. Good eyes!

I've owned 4 copies of this 12" US pressing and all 4 were absolutely packed with surface noise ... See full review

You're positive it says "Made in EU" on the center labels?

I'm experiencing pretty significant pitch issues with this pressing. I know some of the instrumentals are intentionally low-fi but I'm nearly certain my pressing is faulty...

I went through FOUR US pressings. All garbage. Finally broke down and imported a European pressing. It's phenomenal. Read my review below.

You've​ probably seen me all over the review section on this album... So here's my final post on the 12" XL reissues... There are two separate pressings for the 12" XL reissue of Kid A. One states "Made in the EU" on the disc label and the other has no ... See full review

Does yours state "Made in EU" on the disc label? Because all 4 copies I've owned are chock full of surface noise and are missing the "Made in EU" on the disc label indicating that they are the US pressings.

It does have Bound 2. I purchased this album for the novelty of owning it on vinyl but be warned that this one sounds pretty rough. I still don't regret the purchase but the pressing quality is pretty awful.

Just ordered one! I read on another release page that Parlophone pressed this particular release for years and years. Is this true or was this primarily pressed in 2000? I want to make sure I didn't shell out a decent amount of money for an edition that ... See full review

What leads you to believe that the 2000 Parlophone repress is still made to this day?? My understanding is that "LPKIDA1" and the "UK" barcode version were both pressed in 2000 but that LPKIDA1 was the original.
