How can you tell if this is the 2020 version and not the 2016 version? I ordered this from a record shop in EU and it looks exactly like the 16 version. Is there any thing that's different on the packaging that I should be looking out for? I want to make sure I didn't get sent the 16 version and unsealing it would make it unreturnable.

Sounds perfect. Discs are dead flat and dead quiet. Also the white vinyl looks amazing. I think the is the pressing to get.

My copy sounds really bad at higher up volumes, not very dynamic, I can hear random cracking and white noise at times

My copy luckily does not have much underlying noise or ticks and pops, but i find in most of the songs that its heavy in the mid range, not sure if its the pressing or how its meant to sound. i do agree that there's a heap of over dubs and layering. i don't mind it, but id like to find a better sounding pressing if there is one in the future.

Absolute terrible sounding pressing, just like every other version of this album on vinyl i've heard. And i've owned the black, white and this pressing. Recently sold the black one and i think i might sell this SE as well. The white one sounds the best, but it's still the worst sounding RH album on vinyl. Which is pretty strange, because the digital version sounds excellent and their analog counterparts are always better sounding. An example are the incredible sounding In Rainbows boxset, TKOL Newspaper edition and the 45rpm pressing of HTTT.

Is this REALLY a better sounding version? Is it worth buying it again? Some claim its better here while others say they used the same stamper. WHO TO BELIEVE

Beautiful packaging.
Vinyl pressing quality isn't great. Mines came with a lot of dirt.
The master of this vinyl is hot but manageable with EQ. Sounds nice.

Like night and day. Got Rainbo copy and washed it several times. Still noisy, throughout all sides. Mailordered a copy direct from the UK and it was an Optimal. No noise to speak of. I see a direct difference in the quality of the pressing with the Optimal being the one to get.

Hoorah! At last a clean sounding pressing of this album. Well done XL for getting there eventually (4 years later).

Rolled the dice and came up with total garbage. Received it 8/2020 and it seems to be the Optimal pressing. Scuffs on all 4 sides, off center hole on record 1 and the most surface noise I've gotten on any new record ever. And behind all that noise it sounds like a crappy LP master to start with. Have a VPI but not wasting cleaning fluid. I buy a lot of vinyl and this will be the first record I return. I'd say stick with hi-res digital on this release.
