No need to be discreet. It certainly has more great songs, and shouldn't be overlooked for its diversity of styles. It's overlong and a fucking mess, but also a bit of a tour-de-force.

Personally I'd prune I Will and We Suck Young Blood.

I agree with you on We Suck and we've already been over I Will...

I will never agree with you guys on the HTTT front. It's not even that bad. I just find it unbelievably uninspired and directionless. I probably wouldn't even be interested in Radiohead right now had In Rainbows sounded like that.

HTTT is the record that finally sucked me into the Radiohead maelstrom.

HTTT was the record that soured me to Radiohead. And I think I'm one of the few who rates IR lower than 3rd.

I don't suppose anyone's watched the anime Ergo Proxy with Paranoid Android over the closing credits....

Btw how fucking immense will it be to have U2 and Radiohead at the Grammy's....any one smelling a Sexy Nude collaboration....or something else as daft

Well Lance doesn't like it. I'm surprised he hasn't popped in here to say "In Lameblows" once again.

I don't think I'd rank it any higher than 4th, even though I love it.

Climbing Up the Walls is boring.
Funny, I consider Paranoid Android and Climbing Up the Walls the two best songs on that album, and the former one of the best songs ever.

I don't dislike Android, I'm just not crazy about it. I just love the others a lot.

my problem with Android is that I have heard it too many times, it's like Bullet or Pride or SBS... Good tune but overplayed, for me at least...

I love the acoustic guitar in the first two minutes of the song.

Hail to the Thief is all over the place, I'd say I enjoy half of it.

With Kid A, I can understand the appreciation for it, but I really can't get into most of it.

Hearing the acoustic version with just Yorke really made me appreciate how fucking good it is.

I will say that when I performed it in school, I think it didn't go over all that well. Probably not a good song for people who've never heard it before.

Yeah, I can see this. But every time I've heard it live (which is every show I've seen) I get all excited when I hear those opening notes so I guess I'm not burned out on it yet.

I love every RH record except PH. I don't think I've said that yet this week.

The Bends was the only album I liked after first listen, but it's my third favorite now.
