I like this a lot on first listen.

It's just clumsy.

Indeed. That song and Blow Out are the only two songs worth returning to on Pablo Honey.

Yorke's long spun out wail in You is a highlight.

Yeah, what a seriously great album. Daydreaming is really gorgeous in the full context of the thing, also listening to the HQ WAVs on my good headphones goes a long way to peeling away the layers here. When True Love Waits started I was a little "oh noooo" because it's lacking the rhythm provided by the acoustic guitars in the I Might Be Wrong version, but it's fantastic here. And super strange in the warm feeling I get from this song finally finding a natural home somewhere on one of their albums, like a kid from the orphanage finding a permanent family.

Anyway, Burn the Witch is still one of the highlights for me. Also Tinker Tailor. Glass Eyes, Decks Dark. I'd never heard Identikit before, but it's super great. All of it really at this point.

Listened to it 3 times between yesterday and today, and it keeps getting better. So much good stuff to dissect. Burn the Witch may end up my favorite song in the whole album (the "low flying panic attack" line gets me every time), but The Numbers and Ful Stop are fantastic. Everything, really. So many gorgeous melodies. The moment where the bass starts in Ful Stop reminds me a lot of Weird Fishes.

Yeah, the song has some clumsy lines, but worst lyric ever is a little over the top. I think in this form the bad lyrics are just magnified, this version is just a big misstep.

I'm not sure what you guys are talking about, "babies" is not a lyric in the song.....

Was written by a major fanboy, but here's a review from iYup's favorite site.

I loved the album and it's arty and atmospheric feeling. Can't really imagine them performing these songs live, though.

What an interesting album. I love listening to it so far, but almost nothing stands out to me yet.

The melancholy in the melodies being led by acoustic guitar(s) on several of the tracks gives me this vibe. Usually, there is one or two I can find somewhere, but there is at least double that on this album. The acoustic guitars are more to the front here (to my ears).

Agreed. If anything, Burn The Witch stands out the most. I've also been listening to that song for a week though.

The term "folk" is kinda tough to define as people tend to use that term pretty liberally.
