OK Computer is an amazing album, and I'd love to give it five stars here. However, I feel compelled to rate this product based on what I received, and what I received was a horrible pressing. The highs are muted, Thom's voice sounds unnatural, the overall sound is muddy and distorted Based on some web research, it appears that about half the people who bought this reissue agree with me.
Maybe it's quality control, and there are some good pressings, or maybe the other half don't have the ear or equipment to show the obvious flaws. Based on that web research, and my own experience, I can't recommend buying this vinyl reissue.
Unfortunately, the out-of-print original vinyl pressings had a problem with surface noise, so there's not a great option for getting this on vinyl. Again, as a piece of music, it's five stars in my book. But in consideration of the product which I received, I've got to go with the two star rating. I've not yet heard it myself, but I've read that it doesn't share the problems that the previous reissue had.
The catalog number is XLLP If you want to buy OK Computer on vinyl, I'd look for that catalog number. I plan to do it soon myself. Scuffs and skips. I was really looking forward to this album coming in.
Before opening the wrap on the record, I noticed that 3 of the 4 corners of the folder were crumpled harshly. This happens sometimes and I understand why. Not a huge deal, the record didn't seem effected. After I removed the plastic wrap carefully, I noticed a few spots of pretty bad damage on the box. There was a deep gouge in one location, a few smaller gouges around the folder, but what took the cake was a sloppy rectangle that had been cut into the folder with what looks like a dull box cutter.
The problem with that is that the folder had cuts on it, but the wrap was pristine, so this was packaged at the factory AFTER so much damage had been done. Legit on the first word of the song, the track skips. I was about to start singing along with the song and right when I opened my stupid mouth to sing along, there was a millisecond long 'pop' noise followed by the next lyric 'police'.
I was audio cucked by the poor quality of the whole product! Well it's no secret that the XL Radiohead reissue campaign was a mess To be fair, it wasn't really a campaign as much as it was XL just distributing leftover stock from Parlophone and Capitol. So-called XL copies began arriving in Capitol sleeves with Parlophone discs inside There didn't appear to be much rhyme or reason to it and it was kind of a crap shoot on what you might receive depending on which album you were purchasing.
Many people were pleasantly surprised to find Parlophone discs inside OK Computer rather than Capitol discs as Parlophone pressings are widely considered to be superior to Capitol. But my Parlophone discs were less than impressive Terrible highs, no definition in cymbal crashes especially The discs inside had XL logos on the center labels as well.
Figured that the sound would be roughly the same but that it was worth a shot. I was absolutely blown away. This was the best I'd ever heard OK Computer. Goosebumps abound as Thom performs Exit Music Presented here on this pressing as I've only imagined them sounding in the past. Not sure if these XL labels are just slapped on to old Parlophone discs or if they're new pressings. But, dear god, my copy is perfection.
And I absolutely hope you have the same experience!! I've begun to realize that it really doesn't matter what the logo says Sometimes you get a good one that makes the hair on your arms stand at end. Find one that sounds good to your ears! The confusing manner in which XL spat old stock all over the place is the only reason for the 4 star rating. This is absolutely one of my best sounding records. I actually admire the attempt to not be wasteful by using the old stock but, god, there was just no way to tell if you were going to get a lemon or an absolute sonic marvel.
