Amnesiac is the fifth studio album by the English rock band Radiohead, released in June 2001 by Parlophone. Recorded with producer Nigel Godrich alongside Radiohead's previous album Kid A 2000, Amnesiac incorporates similar influences of electronic music, 20th-century classical music, jazz and krautrock. Only one track was recorded after the Kid A sessions: Life in a Glasshouse, a collaboration with the Humphrey Lyttelton Band. Amnesiac - Radiohead. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. An amazing album that was not in Youtube in a live form. Note: They have never played PulkPull revolving doors live so i put the studio . Released June 5, 2001. Amnesiac Tracklist. Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box Lyrics. Perhaps the greatest sequel since The Godfather Part II, Amnesiac was the second half of the one-two punch Radiohead began with 2000s Kid A. It was smoother on the surface yet just as disorienting underneath, putting more emphasis on the guitars its predecessor relied on less, but in all kinds of warped and mutated forms: Knives Out soared like vintage Smiths, and I Might Be Wrong rode an Allman Brothers riff into the trip hop hinterlands.

Faced with a deliberately difficult deviation into experimentation, Radiohead and their record label promoted Kid A as just that - a brave experiment, and that the next album, which was just around the corner, really, would be the real record, the one to satiate fans looking for the next OK Computer, or at least guitars.

Amnesiac is the fifth studio album by English rock band Radiohead. It was first released on 4 June 2001 in the United Kingdom by Parlophone and a day later in the United States by Capitol Records. Much of its material was recorded during the same sessions for the band's previous album Kid A 2000, incorporating similar influences of krautrock and electronica. Its lyrics and artwork explore themes of memory, with influences from ancient Greek and Egyptian mythology. Album 2001 11 Songs. But it also offers something even more challenging, replete with crumbling orchestral builds and-as on the plaintive Morning BellAmnesiac -invigorating bursts of Thom Yorkes matchless falsetto. That said, Amnesiac is about as close to The Bends as Miss Cleo is to Jamaican. And within the first ten seconds of its opening track, Packt like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box, the band crushes that rumor like a bug in the ground. Sparse, clanging percussion evokes abandoned swingsets. If nothing else, Radiohead have always realized the emotional impact of a stunning album closer, and Amnesiac offers two. Sitting side by side, Like Spinning Plates and Life in a Glasshouse are so vastly superior to the album's other tracks that the album's few misteps are easily forgiven

Solid press and a great album. A true classic by Radiohead.
Mine plays perfectly, but only after a deep cleaning.Beautiful crisp sound whether played through speakers or headphones. Gorgeous album, My favourite Radiohead album.
As others have said, can also vouch that this press sounds superb and probably the best version there is so far. Beautifully crisp, you feel it from the first hi-hat in Sardines.
100 times better than the 10 inch version. I now have both. Going to dump the 10 inch at the used record store in my area. This pressing is so damn good. So glad they did this and also did it as a 12 inch.

Not much to add for what people have already said. It sounds simply wonderful, adding some layers I had never heard from digital copies that I have had. I have not heard the original 10" but few times at the time of it`s release, but I doubt it sounded this good. The 45RPM is really nice touch, and in my opinion it usually makes sound breath better with added resolution.
I had slight reservations when purchasing this one as I had had a couple of issues with pops and clicks on Kid A XL Reissue (resolved on replacement copy)...However I can honestly say that it sounds great and at times its like I'm hearing the album for the first time as there are subtle layers that really come through - previously unheard on cd version. I think that this is why - in my opinion - Radiohead are meant to be heard on vinyl: The many intricate layers that they install into their music really do come through. I had the same experience with the latest In Rainbows Reissue - also superb. Recommended.
It's perfect. A low level bass compared to digital but the warm and detailed harmonics make you think you've never listened this album before. Strongly recommend to purchase.
XL pressing, made in the EU . Plays at 45 but only knew this once I started playing. A Flawless pressing that sounds superb.
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 area on side A)... It is still 45rpm despite this difference... The markings are different as well “147231M3” stamped (not etched). Looks like we have yet another release for this one.
As far as the 12" XL's are concerned, I preferred the NA.
Can you compare pressing quality of both? I was sent an NA version when I ordered the EU version, and am wondering if I should keep it.
Ferri - My name
Same issue, my marking is 147231m1/A. Does someone want to create a seperate release?
Has anybody done a direct A/B comparison with the Amnesiac XL 12" 45RPM and the original EU 2001 Parlophone press yet? I own the latter - it sounds amazing, and I'm wondering if it's worth my time/money to seek out the new 12". Thanks for any feedback!
I have had 2 copies of this so far and both have a lot of non fill/stitching pressing faults on sides C and D (causing a ripping like sound). A real shame as The sound quality of the music itself is great.both are EU pressings (with minotaur cover)...
I can confirm the non-fill on side C. Really annoying. I didn't even bother listening to side 4. Other than that, pressing was quiet.
I purchased the 12" at a local record store. I'm intrigued that my cover art differs from the original artwork and what is shown here... There is no "crying minotaur" and the image is essentially the same as the rear artwork (minus the barcode and information at the top). Anyone else notice what I'm seeing? Another 12" release will have to be added to discogs as I have also seen 12" with the "proper" artwork (which is this release page).
US first pressings have the misprint cover and apparently poor pressing quality, US second and further pressings and UK pressings have the correct cover. Word I've been seeing is that the UK pressing is significantly better than the US pressing for some reason so it's worth the extra $5 or so to import.
bradleyhanson I have actually never seen a copy of the 2x12" Amnesiac that wasn't the version without the minotaur on the front. I'm starting to wonder if it actually exists, or if the early pressings had the plain cover and then they added the minotaur again (or vice versa?) It certainly exists. I purchased it from a local record store in Toronto in early October. I went back a few days ago and they still had several copies, all of them with the minotaur on the front. So for whatever reason, there are two versions of this cover, and someone will have to add the one without the minotaur to the database.

Same. I was thrown off as to why they would remove the "crying minotaur" from the cover. Not sure if it's a printing error or intentional. The cover feels pretty stark to me now.
I have the same problem, the cover art is the same as the rear. Weird.
Had no idea this was a 45 RPM pressing and dropped the needle spinning at 33-1/3, lol. Quickly realized my folly and moved the belt. It sounds great (granted this is the first Amnesiac copy I have owned) and I have no regrets. I'm picking up virtually no surface noise and lots of channel separation and clarity.
It's totally stupid, that there is nowhere marked, that it's a 45 RPM, otherwise it sounds superb...
Any thoughts on how good this pressing is? Is it better than the 10" Parlophone and Captiol pressings?
Yes It is a 45, played it today had a skip on the second track
It is most definitely 45rpm. I have the version without the minotaur on the cover, which has the identical record labels as this one... Sounds great.
Unless there is something better? I have the LPKIDA and following uk parlophone press of kidA and the recent 12" beats them both, no contest. Hoping the same for amnesiac, though that will be tough as the OG Amnesiac is probably the best sounding record (ever) made. Incredibly perfect mastering job done, music literally jumps at you from the speakers. incredible! if the 12" is better I will likely die of amazingness.
Yes, I too was surprised but it is indeed 45 RPM, absolutely.
Is this version really 45RPM? I only ask because the Kid A reissue is 33RPM and it seems odd that it's different
Much better than the Capitol pressings. This one is quiet, with no pops or ticks. There seems to be a bit more clarity in the sound as well, though I don't have an original Parlophone to compare it to. It's certainly worth getting if you want to upgrade from a Capitol pressing.
capital pressing is pure shit, parlophone is almost flawless, there is no use to find anything better
