They must have changed sime song titels to make it work. Probably why Silent Spring is now The Numbers.

Maybe they renamed Silent Spring just so it would fit this pattern!

But seriously, that song. The piano in the background. I liked the acoustic version Thom played in Paris last year but I didn't expect it to be this good.

This, obviously.

Stupid Dutch autocorrect.

What is the first line of True Love Waits? I've read somewhere that it's ...to have you be in peace. But it sounds an awful lot like ...to have your babies which would be one of the worst lyrics ever.

The whole song is beautifully haunting. Those sweeping strings and gentle piano melody is sublime.

Maybe I'm in the minority here, but True Love Waits in this form is a significant improvement over the I Might Be Wrong version. That off-kilter piano makes it a bit unsettling and brings a new dimension to the lyrics.

I'm totally with you. I wasn't a big fan of this song before but I love this.

Guys, I'm so in love with this record.

Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool

I think it's fine. It's always a great song and they didn't fuck it up. It's a good closer. I prefer Thom's vocal on the live version, but that's about the only thing pulling me one way or the other.

I'm going to wait until later on tonight to listen to this again. Seems like a night record.

i'm thus far disappointed.

but i'm happy to see that i seem to be in the vast minority, so hopefully with a few more listens things will hopefully improve.

identikit and ful stop have been butchered... nigel again neutered the fuck out of them.

The opposite for me. Identikit doesn't sound like it's three songs in one anymore, it flows organically and has a much better intro and outro (closest thing to a Jonny guitar solo since the OK Computer days). Ful Stop is also a huge improvement, with the bassline being more in the background and the synths creating this ominous mood all throughout.

True Love Waits is the only disappointment for me so far. Even though there isn't a track here that reaches the heights of their best songs, it is very cohesive and consistent - I don't think there's a single dud here, which I can't say for any of their records after Kid A.

Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool

This album occupies a similar place as Kid A for me so far: relatively few tracks I would consider among their best (at least compared to OK Computer and The Bends), but as a whole it's brilliant.

Limbs was like two EPs smashed together and the second EP was way better.

Damn, Everything in Its Right Place and Idioteque are both all-timers for me - not just for Radiohead but for any band.

I'm not crazy about How to Disappear Conpletely, without which minor fault Kid A would be about perfect for me. I'd still say it's their most consistency and cohesive album.
