I love half of Amnesiac but the other half is pretty boring and there are also a few really bad tracks on it, namely Morning Bell and Pull/Pulk.

Morning Bell/Amnesiac is heavenly. I'm still pissed they only played the cold Kid A version live.

I really like Hunting Bears for some reason. I like Pulk/Pull far more than most of their other "electronic adventures", but it's probably just more up the type of alley of electronic music that suits my fancy.

Until I Might Be Wrong came out, there probably weren't many Like Spinning Plates fan. Once I heard the I Might Be Wrong live version though, it became a track I couldn't do without. I'm sure I like the album version far more because it, particularly since I could finally understand what was being said. I thought it was all gibberish sounds initially (thought the same of Kid A - the song).

Kid A version is better. Makes you wait a little bit longer for the sunlight it has, but it offers greater variety, and I love Selway's drumming. The Amnesiac version is gorgeous, but it doesn't go anywhere, and Thom's vocal is so whiny.

Plus Kid A version has a great riff that lasts about 6 seconds after "round and round and round"

Agreed, I love that little portion of the song.

Yeah, that's what I meant. The song is so dreary to start, but once it opens up there...so sublime.

I really like the live version of Like Spinning Plates. I'm pretty indifferent to the album version. It's just kind of there.

That's part of why I hate the album version. I hears the live version first and thought well there's going to be at least one gorgeous song on Amnesiac and I bought it and there was no piano to be heard.

Spinning plates (album version) is sublime with a good pair of earphones

I've said it before, it is one of the most textured pieces of music I have ever experienced in a tactile way.

I really like both versions, but the Kid A version is my preference as well. That 10/8 time signature gives it an unconventional groove that somehow manages to surprise me every time that I listen to it.

My favorite place to offer NSW no assistance.

So yeah, I've been listening to peoples' least favorite Amnesiac songs this morning, and I still have no idea what any of you are complaining about. I must have a version of the album that sounds drastically different than Cobbler does.
