It's lacking parentheses.

Yeah. Just listening to Thief now. I love this bloody record. It is definitely flawed, but I love it nonetheless.

It took me forever to get into it but now I love it. Where You End and I Begin is such an awesome song.

The first half of Hail To the Thief (sans We Suck Young Blood) is as good as it gets when it comes to Radiohead. The second half is very problematic though. I only really like There There and A Wolf at the Door, the others sound very filler-like to my ears (apologies to all you Myxomatosis fans).

Twice in a thread! And we're not even 400 posts through. That's gotta be a new record for HTTT discussion.

Totes agree that the second half is significantly weaker; however, I would not lump The Gloaming in with the filler tracks. It's one of the best songs on the album.

I would agree with this, but I also really like 'A Punchup At A Wedding'.

'Scatterbrain' makes me want to puncture my eardrums though.

I'm not sure if the title was a self-fulfilling prophecy or what.

Poor Scatterbrain.

Not one of my favorite Radiohead ballads but every time I hear it I just think, "oh, that's lovely."

Agreed. Scatterbrain is beautiful.

Punchup has a cool groove that's rare for this band.

Myxomatosis is dirty and snaky.

I Will is definitely something that could have been left off.

Yes.

Bingo.

The brilliance of Kid A lies in the atmosphere, sequencing, and commitment to vision. I really wish that its discussion wouldn't so often focus on it being "better" or "worse" than Amensiac, because it seems fairly obvious that the band had different intentions for the two.

I will say the most I have ever enjoyed Kid A was a rainy, gloomy day when I went camping with my family a few years ago, and I was in a crummy mood. I really loved the album that day.

I obviously don't need to say where I lie in the Kid A-Amnesiac debate.

I've never been to a forum that's harsher on Kid A than this one.

Obviously, I mostly frequent music nerd forums.
