I think not good sir...
Those songs plus Life in a Glasshouse are the only songs on Amnesiac that I'd miss if they disappeared. Excluding live performances Life in a Glasshouse is the only brilliant song on the album

I can agree it's an average album (2.5/5;5/10) with a few great songs but mostly nothing special?

I think Hail is probably their third worst/least good/least amazing whatever you want to say. it's a pretty great album but has a few weak tracks that just bring it down. If I took several tracks off Hail I'd probably rank it up with The Bends.

I love the first 3 tracks, and There There (obviously). The Gloaming (well the studio version), I Will and Scatterbrain are the ones that just don't do anything for me. Remove those tracks and Hail is about the same overall as The Bends to me.

Oh and We Suck Young Blood too though I love the piano breakdown so that stays or at least that part...

I would say the first 6 tracks are gold...

I I Will, mostly thanks to this:

YouTube - Radiohead - I Will



Scatterbrain I completely agree on, it's a "Radiohead song by numbers" sort of deal to me, nothing special...

That a live version of I Will? I've never heard it live...might change my mind

I'll give it a listen when I'm done on this album (Parklife by Blur)

It's sort of funny that the tour is over, IR is a year old, and here we are reviewing each record all over again.
