Playing this album with my Ortofon 2M Blue stylus I have lots of issues with distortion. Track 2 is really bad.If I swap out the stylus for My older 2M Silver then the distortion is greatly reduced. I think that higher quality stylus/cartridge combinations certainly reveal issues with sound quality on many newer record pressings
Cannot replicate the problem of distortion at all.Have tested two different copies.System Denon DL110. Turntable Thorens TD126 MKIII.
Interesting... I noticed the same thing on my Grado Black1. When I played this record using the standard cartridge that came with my previous AudioTechnica turntable, I never noticed a problem with distortion. I was worried it was a problem with my turntable, but after playing several other records that sound fine, I'm thinking that this pressing just has issues.

my vinyl sounds great. Seems like it's a 50/50 chance.
bit of crackle in few tracks ... its minor but the vinyl looks good. i also have the black collectors edition i recommend that one of this if you only choose one
If anybody has a copy of this album that isn't distorted and would like to sell it, message me please. I can't seem to find a clean copy. :(
Aside from a little surface noise on the beginning of Deck's Dark and Glass Eyes, mine sounds pretty excellent. Sounds crisp and clear with the bass being perhaps a bit too pronounced... I prefer the Special Edition pressing but I have no major complaints with this one.
One thing to keep in mind is that pure white vinyl often has some of the highest surface noise floor of all vinyl colors.
White pigment isn't any noisier than any other color, including black, despite that being a common myth. Having said that, the white version seems to have shipped much dirtier than the black versions in the boxed set. A thorough cleaning removed much of the noise for me.
Ugh, they couldn't make Identikit sound like the 2012 version, that would just be too simple wouldn't it.
If you listen to other pre-album, performance recordings of many radiohead (and other bands), most songs that end up on an album sound completely different. True Love Waits, a favorite of mine when i heard the old acoustic version, sounds completely over-syruped with sap (to me) on this album. Motion Picture Soundtrack on Kid A sounds much like that to me compared to the earlier live recording, which I prefer; --take even the two versions from that album and Amnesiac of, Morning Bell, so... yes according to the method for recording their albums, I suppose they regularly tend to press their fingers back into the piece until someone says, OK. That sounds like I'm upset at your comment, actually i quite agree that the live 2012 performances of Identikit sound way more phenomenal. I'm just drawing comparisons on how the album versions of these pieces tend to leave a different taste, and likewise for every one, they will either leave you searching for pre-album version, or grow on you in a different time. At least, that's how I feel, I imagine- the anticipation to make Identikit a part of the next album may have forced them to feel it WAS indeed too simple, which may have lent hand to overzealous complications. Again- personal speculation, and i LOVE typing.
I just opened my copy of this release. Happy to have the white vinyl edition (sticker & barcode are correct), unpleasant was the surprise to find black vinyl inside! :-((Would I make a new entry for this as a 'misprint'?
Billy Granson
Same thing just happened to me. White vinyl sticker, 2 black LPs inside.
White Rainbo press, bought sealed/new. Deadwax this copy 'Bazza Alchemy' side A, no 'sanitized' side B, no ' sterilized' on C, and 'neutralized' side D. Centered and flat press. Heavy stock and attractive packaging. I wanted to play as soon as I got home with it, but thankfully I read many mixed reviews between the two different pressings. Clicks, pops, and above average noise floor can be indicative of a dirty record. After a very thorough vacuum cleaning, this record will stay in my collection. Vast soundstage, textural and shimmering. An above average contemporary release for sure. Very happyEdit- After listening with headphones compared to initial review through speakers, I can hear some of the noise floor issues. A few soft clicks/pops, but I still find it enjoyable overall

mkrzych Yes, I have the same markings on the dead wax, except the vinyl is black. Wrong labels put on wrong sides on the first vinyl. The rest is noisy comparing for instance to my Music Matters 45s, but not so bad. Crackles here and there and noisy surface. Deep cleaning and removing static helped a bit. For me quality control for a cheap - pita! Music is fine. Yes, I have the same markings on the dead wax, except the vinyl is black. Wrong labels put on wrong sides on the first vinyl.

I had a copy with a full skip in it, returned it got another copy and that one has a ton of surface noise. Hoping cleaning or time will remove some of that. My turntable is of good quality and the stylus was replaced pretty recently, all audiophile quality stuff. Might just buy a black copy and sell this copy in a bit . . .(Thanks Long in the Tooth Records in Philly for letting me exchange. Great store if you're ever there, definitely recommended.)
LITT is the greatest. Love that place so much.
My Rainbo 790 white copy sounds perfect on my Pro-Ject Debut Carbon with Red. I'm wondering if for some people if could be their turntable or stylus. My copy also does not have "sanitized" etched on side B.
My white copies sound like crap on my Pro-ject Debut Carbon with Ortofon 2m red cartridge. You are lucky if you got a good one! I've gone through THREE!
I cleaned mine before spinning. Had already listened to this album via downloaded version dozens of times prior, was hoping my copy was clean. Started out noise, no warping issues. Glass Eyes on side C has the pops and crackle as commented, as does Present Tense on side D (not quite as bad). They really shit the bed on quality control. This album was so hyped and highly anticipated, how could they let this out the door?
The same way Rainbo totally dropped the ball on the Beatles 2012 stereo LPs.
'Records are housed in thick cardboard printed inner sleeves.' ???? Mine are housed in thin paper inner sleeves - Optimal pressing.
the inner sleeves are in fact printed Inside too .
Light out of Fildon
There's a lot of debris on all sides. Just clean it and the noise will vanish. As it ever was with vinyl ;-)
Count me in as one of the folks with a terrible copy of this. Pops throughout all of "Daydreaming" and ridiculous crackles and surface noise through "Glass Eyes." Horrible, horrible quality control!
yes, very crackles on daydreaming on the only LP version....I don't understand...
Oh yeah I know what they are supposed to sound like...I've got the CD and the WAV download. This record is rife with noise! :(
Lot's of the noise and even crackles are part of the recording so do check by comparing with digital vers
Bad Sunny
can someone help me out: I have the LP with the sticker XLLP790X on it, which of the 2 is it now.....OPT or can I see ?Does the X mean it's the OPT ?thank you from Europe
X means optimal. Same catalog as the rainbow press the barcode sticker is the only give away.
My copy too is FULL of static and pops throughout much of the album. XL Records owes me a replacement copy, as I'm certain the music shop I purchased it from does not have any extras, and I'm sure Radiohead would not be content if they heard it either. So much for being one of the "lucky" preorders for this. Hope the special edition sounds better...
My copy came pretty severely warped, the first LP being one of the worst warps I've ever seen, though the 2nd is also warped but not as drastic. Sound quality is great, but the crazy warp on the first LP causes severe skipping in the very beginning of sides A and B, as well as noticeable/consistent crackling in right channel on some tracks (mostly Daydreaming, Decks Dark, beginning of Desert Island Disk, and Glass Eyes). Towards the middle of each side the crackling dies down, warp doesn't affect play as much, and it generally sounds excellent to me for the rest of each side. Side D was mostly completely fine besides the occasional minor pop. I'll be looking to return this and try my luck with another pressing if i can... I think if mine didn't come warped I'd be quite happy with the sound quality.
Abandoned Electrical
As an update, I did get another copy from a local record shop, same pressing, no warps on this copy which is nice, but same issues I stated about the right channel crackling/clicks/pops on the same tracks. Seems to be consistent with what others are experiencing.
SECOND UPDATE 7/5/16: For those thinking the Optimal pressing might be superior to this one: I just received an Optimal from overseas and... same occasional issues with pops, etc. This is right out of the sleeve, after several passes with a carbon fibre brush. BTW, I'm listening on a brand new cart and stylus I bought three days ago... and I listened to the Rainbo on my previous, totally different, old cart and stylus. In other words I've listened to both pressings on different needles and the issues are the same. (yes, I have devoted an insane amount of time to buying/listening to this album!). So safe to say, some copies have problems regardless of the pressing plant.I will say I like the paper inners on the Optimal press better than the cardboard ones on the Rainbow. They feel like they'll be gentler on the vinyl. They also seem to slide into the outer sleeve better -- I wonder if there are more warping complaints with the Rainbos because they're in thicker inners that constrict the vinyl in the sleeve. Maybe? Maybe it's random. One day we'll all get together and examine all 9000 copies and see if there's a thruline! FIRST UPDATE (Rainbo): There is actually a teeny little warp that doesn't seem to affect play. However I am *definitely* hearing the consistent pops in the right channel others have noticed. On a record with this much quiet and space, it's noticeable. This is straight out of the sleeve, after a few passes with a carbon brush. Too bad, because otherwise the sound is great and, as others have noticed, mastered somewhat loudly, which I like.ORIGINAL POST (Rainbo): Weirdly, my copy doesn't have " sanitized" "sterilized" or "neutralized" etched in the runout of sides B,C,D. Just the "Bazza Alchemy" on side A. Haven't played this yet to assess sound quality, but there is no physical warp of the vinyl on my copy. Otherwise this fits the description above: the correct barcode (6 3490407900 0), with the XLLP790 code beneath it and on the spine, and the same runout codes.
Its the same for everybody.... first bad pressing.......I don't understand
Yeah. Just ordered an Optimal pressing from Europe, with the requisite wallet-shredding international shipping rates. Ah, this vinyl addiction. It costs me SO MUCH.
I have the same runout. No sanitized etchings. Unfortiunately I also have consistent pops throughout. It's so disappointing.
Same here...just the "Bazza Alchemy" on side A. There's definitely some surface noise on side A at least (I've only played A and B so far). Disappointing, as I had limited myself to two digital listens prior to now so that I could appreciate the quieter parts.
My pressing generally sounds great, HOWEVER it has a bit of low-level (though still noticeable) crackle/noise on sides A thru C but ONLY in the right channel. Judging by the other comments, seems it's a clear manufacturing fuckup. Still quite a surprising error, and frankly, a very disappointing one-- I lined up early for this!!! Anyone else out there with a similar issue?
Yeah, I hear a constant crackle/tick of noise though out Desert Island Disk that only comes out of the right speaker.
See my post above. Definitely hearing it. Disappointing!
I have the Matrix runout for XLLP790X Catalog number but my album is actually catalog number XLLP790. I'm not sure how to add to my collection can anyone help me?
Ok. I can't find it though none of the XLLP790 catalog numbers that match my matrix runout. This can be super confusing for a novice.
So that means I may have added my record under the wrong release?
X means it was pressed at optimal for uk/europe market. whoever made this listing messed up. There is another listing that is correct for the optimal release.
Rose Of Winds
No issues with warping. But awful noise/distortions on side A, especially during Burn The Witch, making it just about unplayable. Sides B, C and D aren't quite as bad (at least for me anyway) very disappointed that this quality of pressing has been allowed to be released.
Same for me. At first I thought I had blown a midrange. The center hole wasn't even punched out all the way. Had to carve the hanging plastic off with an exacto knife.
I picked up my white pressing at the local record shop that I work at. I have no issues what so ever with any excess noise or warping; the LP actually sounds excellent and very quiet! One thing I did notice though was that my copy doesn't have the word "sterilized" etched on side C. It's only got the matrix number. The barcode was printed on the jacket correctly as well.
creaner sterilized and neutralized should be there but very faintly in comparison to the etched cat number. Nope, not even there faintly! I put my eyeball right up to the vinyl and examined the entire runout!
Your guess is as good as mine! Maybe we're just special!
sterilized and neutralized should be there but very faintly in comparison to the etched cat number.
Yeah, on my copy I don't even have "sanitized" "sterilized" "neutralized" on sides B, C or D. Just "Bazza Alchemy" on side A. Maybe there are more than two pressings of this thing?
Good pressing, minimal surface noise. Doesn't seem to have the issues people have mentioned with the other white pressing. Dead wax inscriptions are all lowercase. My copy has the correct barcode but incorrect cat# (XLLP790) on the back cover.
Same experience with this pressing. Didn't have a sticker on the outer plastic.
