Yeah...I think you know by now that I'm not a big fan of HTTT.

Pablo is just fine. Nothing special, but still fun to listen to now and again.

There's something kinda dodgy about the album I reckon. Has some classic tracks (Pyramid, Pulk/Pull, Spinning PLates), but I just can't enjoy it heaps as an entire album. Too much stuff I don;t need to hear (Sardines, Morning Bell and the awful Knives Out)

I generally agree, but we like different songs on it. Pulk/Pull and LPS do nothing for me, but I definitely enjoy Sardines and Morning Bell.

And there might be people out there who find all four songs immensely cracking, which means they'll have a higher opinion of Amnesiac.

It's a difficult album to really criticise though, when you take into consideration that they're all from the fruitful Kid A sessions.....

.....and then you've got Fog, Kinetic and the potential commercial smash hit Cuttooth as merely b-sides....

There is no hate here at all. If I was to actually make some sort of ratings. Amnesiac and everything above it would be in the 9 range.

Pablo's the one straggler, but it's not nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be.

Just listened to Kinetic for the first time. It seems to suck beyond belief. Fog and Cuttooth are cracking though!

Kinetic is probably my least fav. Amnesiac b-side, but it's still ok. Trans-Atlantic Drawl and The Amazing Sounds of Orgy are pretty cool. Cuttouth is definitely a standout b-side though. Dare I say it's possibly one of their best non-album tracks? Maybe even better than Talk Show Host? Depends on what you're into I guess, but it's a close call.

Cuttooth is flat out my favorite non-album track of theirs along with Lift! I like those 2 songs more than some album tracks like Dollars & Cents and Reckoner.

Gagging Order's still my fave non-album track of theirs, but Lift, Fog, and Talk Show Host are up there.

I really like Amnesiac. Life in a Glasshouse deserves all of the kudos in the world. Talk about cracking.

Gagging Order is nice I guess but it doesn't do all that much for me. I don't even remember Talk Show Host. Will have to listen to it again.

It's more of a Thom solo track than anything, but it's one of the most heartbreaking songs I've ever heard. One of the songs that gets me a bit mushy. I'll have to put it on a soundscape one day.

Trust me, they are worth every bit of it! No doubt, life won't be the same for you after that nite. I wouldn't hesitate to pay that amount.. but hey I have seen them a few times. Seriously though, they are beyond incredible and you will be blown away!
