Ironically, that's one of my favourites from the album!

I know a lot of this boils down to personal taste, but I really have difficulty understanding why so many people hate HTTT. I can maybe understand people not liking Sail To The Moon, Backdrifts, We Suck Young Blood, and The Gloaming, but the rest is good stuff! Oh well.

I can't remember another album that ends so strong: Myxamytosis, Scatterbrain, and Wolf at the Door. Unbelieveable. Those three show what this band is still capable of. The latter is like Beck rapping over Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, and the synths or strings behind the chorus just soar up into heaven.

fucking phenomenal.

Exactly, but I would add "Punch Up at a Wedding" to that list and make it the last 4 songs.

The following is part of the 'allmusic' review for Amnesiac...

It would be easier to accept this if the record was better than it is. Where Kid A had shock on its side, along with an admirably dogged desire to not be conventional, Amnesiac often plays as a hodgepodge. True, it's a hodgepodge with amazing moments: the hypnotic sway of "Pyramid Song" and "You and Whose Army?," the swirling "I Might Be Wrong," "Knives Out," and the spectacular closer "Life in a Glasshouse," complete with a drunkenly swooning brass band. But, these are not moments that are markedly different than Kid A, which itself lost momentum as it sputtered to a close. And this is the main problem — though it's nice for an artist to be generous and release two albums, these two records clearly derive from the same source and have the same flaws, which clearly would have been corrected if they had been consolidated into one record. Instead of revealing why the two records were separated, the appearance of Amnesiac makes the separation seem arbitrary — there's no shift in tone, no shift in approach, and the division only makes the two records seem unfocused, even if the best of both records is quite stunning, proof positive that Radiohead are one of the best bands of their time.


I don't understand why the reviewer thinks that Kid A is a mixed bag with some brilliant moments! I like every single song on that album!

George Orwell me thinks...I see that connection. Radiohead fucks with the rules. The status quo of everything, including music, needs a kick in the arse more than ever...On Kid A, I see them being world-class arse-kickers.

And I haven't even listened to Amnesiac yet...

Sail To The Moon grew on me. Didn't like it all that much in the initial stages, but it became better with time. And that's the problem. Some people don't allow Radiohead "time," and automatically dismiss them. That sucks.

I'm on your side
Nowhere to hide
Trapdoors that open
I spiral down

You're living in a fantasy world
