Anyone can play guitar
Punchup at a wedding
thinking about you
are there more?
never heard that
where the FUCK was TREEFINGERS? And Kid_A (yawn), Everything In Its Right Place (oh sorry, I think you go to the end of this song at about 3 mins - shut up now) Coke Babies, the Drill EP in its entirity barring Thinking About You...
Your list was SHIT!
is probably one of my favourites, unless you're talking about the awful punky version.
Morning Bell is awful, as are the little 'textural' things they occasionaly do (is it 'treefingers' and 'hunting bears'?). Life in a Glasshouse is like having teeth pulled.
NOBODY BETTER SAY LEWIS(MISTREATED), ALRIGHT
is the best track on the album!
pop is dead and killer cars are by far the worst.
all of the above are at least okay.
The Pyramid Song, can't stand it
Those ones aren't exactly my favourites, but they are pretty great. Treefingers would be the obvious one, but does that really count?
Anyway, I think Sulk's a bit rubbish. And so's The Gloaming.
Oh, and anyone who says How Do You? can leave now. Comedytastic.
actually isnt bad at all
pretty much agree
Anyone Can Play was the first that came to mind, completely agree about black star and thinking about you
optimistic was my favourite track on kid a, now my least favourite but still good. thinking about you is weeeeak too.
some of the amnesiac bsides were entirely unremarkable
i dont like let down or subterranean homesick or lucky or any of the rest of those "spacey janglers" off OKC
unrelatedly the coffee shop i was getting my office drinks from today was playing High and Dry and i almost did a little cry
i kinda like the seahorses
with you on homesick alien. bit dull.
Actually, I don't like the song as much as my username suggests... I never really did.
I still think it's good though, I like the spacey jangler ones.
wrong all wrong!!!!!!
is fucking incredible, and loads of people listed it as one of their favourites in that recent thread
cant remember the gloaming, so i probably agree
Pull/Pulk Revolving Doors
Dollars And Cents
Practically all of Pablo Honey is gash
or the 11 track bore that is Amnesiac.
stick to actual 'songs'
ie - not fitter happier, hunting bears or treefingers (or 'unlisted instrumental' off Kid A).
all of which are fine as what they are, but not exactly 'top notch tuneage'.
who doesn't like Kid A (the song).
particularly annoys me
i really don't like Idioteque either
After you've seen it live the album version sounds rubbish.
Idioteque is really really disappointing live.
The best bit about the song is the heavily processed drums, which they don't do in the live show. They just use really clean drum machine sounds. It makes me sad.
but the point is to have Phil's drums on top of them to give it weird polyrhythms.
And then there's Thom dancing around like a loon with a tambourine.
on record are way different to Idioteque.
Idioteque has massive super-mega-compressed, processed drums. They sound amazing.
he means "I Might Be Wrong" the live album ratgher than the song..
Well I don't really like that version either.
I will have to listen to them both now and compare the drum machine track. As I say, I'd just sort of assumed it was the identical track played back over the PA...
I actually like "Pop Is Dead".
Anyhow, NME apparently is going to have an exclusive review of Radiohead's album - the "first one on the planet", apparently. How do they propose to do this? Erm, by downloading it when it's available to us all, listening to it and putting a write-up on their blog. Jesus wept.
has exposed even more that they have to wait in line like the rest of us, then dress it up as an 'exclusive'.
Punchup at a Wedding
We Suck Young Blood
Most of Pablo Honey 'tbh'.
isn't up to their usual standard. i think fitter happier doesn't need to be so long.
not sure if this counts but the 'radiodread' album seems pretty pointless to me
of Let Down is muc hmuch better than the original
I'm firmly entrenched in the past.
Stop Whispering (either version)
Million Dollar Question
Inside My Head
Pop is Dead (actually not too bad but not Radiohead...)
Beyond that there are certainly songs that have seriously aged badly:
High & Dry
Fake Plastic Trees
2nd half of Pablo Honey
And most of your second list.
It's seriously bad.
The second list is really more of an allowance list. I will let those songs appear on other people's lists and not feel they have some sort of brain issue because for me they've become songs I don't have much time for, despite loving them so much in the past.
It's possibly an improvement but that's all.
us stop whispering maybe a bit lame, also inside my head. i can't remember coke babies too well, molasses only sounded weak after talkshowhost,
hunting bears i can let you have, but restlessboy won't.
Also, it's not that good. It's no 'Planet Telex'.
optimistic is great.
To me, most of Pablo Honey and, Sulk doesn't do much for me.
are all really good.
The reason: The long forgotten "wonky" jonny greenwood solo
His solos now are still brilliant, but in a different way. Theyre all clunky and stuff now, but back then he'd step on that big fuck off overdrive and show his mastery of the "play like youre just playing random notes, when really it's very calculated and musician-ly" skill
High and Dry
Fake Plastic Trees
The whole of Pablo Honey...
I could go on.
Optimistic is pretty good though, and anyone who says Treefingers is a moron.
Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors
Punch Up At A Wedding.
That's genuinely all.
Yes I Am, but none of you have.
I really like the track anyway, so pffffffffffff.
- Myxamatosis. Can see what you're trying to do there, doesn't mean it works
- Motion Picture Soundtrack. Worst thing on Kid A, and considering it comes straight after Morning Bell that's quite an achievement
- Punchup at a Wedding is pretty comic.
- Sulk, Go To Sleep, Nice Dream - whingy indie by the numbers.
- Pop is Dead, Killer Cars, An Alligator etc. etc. spunked off b-sides, could have been much better.
