Be neither shocked nor disturbed: it's all good.

Keep in mind that the first 5 songs on my list are basically #1s and the second 5 songs are basically #2s. I love every song on IR.

That said, I've always felt that IR is mostly about the slower songs for me. The rockers aren't as interesting as the rockers on their other records. I still love them.

Also, I suck at rating songs.

Finally, none of this is as shocking & disturbing as you not loving Meeting Across the River as much as the rest of BTR.

Capisce?

Yeah, I don't enjoy the "rate all the songs on an album" type lists either, as it makes it appear as if you rate some tracks extremely poorly, even if you think they're fantastic. Ratings, schmatings, lists, schmists.

As long as Videotape is #10, I'm good.

Also, in retrospect, I absolutely hated 15 Step until a day or two before Santa Barbara, so who am I to judge.

I think I like Videotape much more than everyone else.

That's right. You told me that during the song. Jigsaw was the last song I bonded with. Now I love it.

I've never understood why people don't adore Jigsaw like I do. I think it's one of their five best songs ever.

I should also state that I like every song on this album, and love most of them. I've even warmed up to the album version of Videotape.

I probably rate Bodysnatchers so low because it's the least inventive song on the album, and just comes off as a generic rocker to me. I like it, but they could write that shit in their sleep, and I much prefer something like 2+2=5.

All these years of watching Bono try to play guitar make someone like Yorke playing guitar look a lot more impressive, because he's not bad at all.

A good amount of the time, Yorke is actually playing lead. (well, his rhythm part is the "main" guitar part at least)

Indeed. His parts on Paranoid Android, There There, and Bodysnatchers are all good stuff.

I've heard it before, and it's by far the most impressive thing I've ever seen him play. It's not particularly difficult, though.

Hey, who could say? Radiohead has very good b-sides... God, I'm loving this band.


Kinda off topic:
Been listening to Thom Yorke's solo album... some good stuff in there.
