bought the two books. the LPs and cassette packages are nicely presented though, wouldn't fault anyone who goes for it

So the albums aren’t remastered.
That makes only the books and the unreleased MP3’s appealing.
love you guys!

i've held off on purchasing Kid A or Amnesiac on vinyl in anticipation of this being released someday, so it made sense for me to just cop everything.

also, apparently the Japanese vinyl release lists the 5 b-sides as being on the 3rd vinyl disc after the new unreleased stuff. which would be cool, but i'm not sure why they'd do that and not mention it in any listing aside from the cassette package. also lots of folks talking about how the 7" labels on the vinyl mean that there are likely hidden tracks on each side of each disc but that sounds like some TKOL2 bullshit to me.

the deluxe release of OKNOTOK had 'a notebook containing 104 pages from Thom Yorke's library of scrawled notes of the time, a sketchbook containing 48 pages of Donwood and Tchock's 'preparatory work''

These are normally 2xLP albums, squashing them into one can’t be good for the sound quality. Unless that’s what they mean by 7” labels?

Edit: didn’t read description on website re: half speed mastering

I actually think Kid A needs some remastering, it's just so compressed - maybe that's not fixable, I dunno i'm not an engineer

Yeah feels like a bit of an oversight - the b-sides from this era are excellent

I’m gonna pass on this

"if you say the world" is good stuff but i wouldn't be surprised if this version was recorded in the past couple years. like an attempt for a moon shaped pool. i never felt that way about the released "man of war" but i feel like it's a possibility here

the lack of b-sides is also disappointing but if this isn't remastered then i guess it doesn't matter

No "Tngled," "Where You Are" or "Now Clear Boat"

What's the point without those?

:( 😞I think I'm gonna pass on buying anything. I have the money and these are my favorite albums, but I don't know. Don't feel comfortable. Might change my mind later, you think they'll sell out?

The art book and paperback especially look cool. Hopefully the outtakes are good but I'm not really too fussed about owning the reissues.

He relies a bit more on falsetto now I think. He also does this goofy showman thing he started around We Suck Young Blood.
