Oddly enough, I actually just got done listening to Amnesiac myself and had the same reaction.

I'm also unable to believe that anyone who says they hate These are My Twisted words has actually listened to it, and didn't just illegally download the wrong song.

I'm being a little contrarian; maintaining my friggin' image and all. But I did listen to it today too and my opinion hasn't changed. One of the more inaccessible records I've ever heard.

Amnesiac is a lot of things, but difficult sure isn't one of them.

It took me a while to warm up to it, but I still don't put it on very often.

It would be the last record I'd recommend to someone wanting to get into the band.

Sons, I'm just biased since it was my first Radiohead album. And after this morning's listen, probably my favorite at the moment. So I'm quick to defend it.

On to a different topic, here are some b-sides and rarities I like a great deal and wish were mentioned more:

I Want None of This
Lull
Maquiladora
Meeting In The Aisle

YES. LM calling it 'sunlight' is dead on. Whenever I hear this I think of someone throwing open curtains and a massive amount of sunlight pouring into a darkened room. #pretentious

On a personal note, it's that moment in the song where it all clicked for me, and I 'got' Kid A (after about the 15th listen). It's a tired cliche of the "difficult" album, but I do love the fact that I was so indifferent to Kid A for the longest time but then came around to loving it. Most rewarding album of theirs I'd say.

I didn't find Kid A difficult at all, weirdly. Didn't love it at first, but Optimistic, Idioteque and How to Disappear kept me coming back, and now I love the whole goddam thing. Kid A and In Limbo would have to be two of their most underrated tracks.

OKC was a tough nut to crack, for me. Took me months to warm up to it.

Also underrated: Palo Alto

There are some moments when I think these should have been on Ok Computer, and I contemplate alternate track sequences/replacing songs. Then I realize that's crazy talk. OKC is already perfect.

I have a similar relationship with Kid A. It was the album - Idioteque, in particular - that opened my eyes to a great deal of obscure and eccentric music, that convinced me that there was more out there than just what Rolling Stone happened to recommend. And that is what a truly great album should do - promote its influences without aping them.

The moment you guys have been mentioning in The Morning Bell is particularly awesome in the live versions of the song.
