Alternative Hail To the Theif

Ok, here's an alternative tracklisting for Hail to the Theif I made using b-sides from that era. I always thought the Hail b-sides were often better than a lot of the stuff that actually made it onto the album, but that might just be because I loved Kid A and Amnesiac so much. Anyway, I always also though Hail had perhaps Radiohead's most inconsistent and incohesive tracklisting. I tried my best to remedy this, creating a more cohesive album structure akin to OK Computer or Amnesiac. (Not so much Kid A, that album's just flawless).

And I know the majority of you are probably NOT going to like this list at all. And that's fine. But I loves it. And yeah, I did leave off a few really good songs that were on HTTT, but they just didn't fit in with my revised vision of the album. And it's not like I don't have the original album anymore either.

So here it is:

1. Where Bluebirds Fly
2. There There
3. 2+2=5
4. I Will (LA Version)
5. I Am A Wicked Child
6. Sit Down, Stand Up
7. I Am Citizen Insane
8. Backdrifts
9. Go To Sleep
10. Myxomatosis
11. Scatterbrain
12. Gagging Order

I also really like having the two instrumentals in there to sort of introduce either side of the album. And of course, it's wonderful to have a HTTT tracklisting with Gagging Order in it.

It's certainly better than the original version of Hail

My only gripe is I'd switch Scatterbrain with Sail to the Moon, but the inclusion of Gagging Order and the b-sides more than make up for that.

Good enough tracklisting, but I'd miss 'Where I End And You Begin' and 'A Punchup At A Wedding' a lot. IMO those are two of the best songs on the record.

Hmmm. You know what, I realy would like to find a place for Where I End And You Begin. I do love that song. I'll see what I can do. I'm not sure if it would fit though.

Wow, I can't believe I missed the Where I End and You Begin exclusion.

I still like it, but yeah, stick that in somewhere.

The Earl's Court live version of Where I End and You Begin is particularly scrumtrulescent.
