You've never heard Amnesiac??

Also everything else I mentioned is essential, naturally.

No, I haven't. Every track I've heard from it I haven't liked, so I haven't really been jumping to hear it. I should, though, I know that.

I could have inserted REM for both 1992 and 1996, but for me, neither of the albums in question deserve it. Not in some 'this was the greatest thing' way, anyhow.

^that, Packt and Pyramid Song are the only songs on Amnesiac that I really, really like. You and Whose Army spends too long getting to the crescendo, I Might Be Wrong has an awesome riff but a nothing vocal. That said, it's a fascinating front-to-back listen, quite enigmatic in a catalogue full of variety. But as we said the other day, its b-sides are top-notch.
