'Let Down' doesn't let me down!

A continuation to my "Okaayyy Computer" thread...but Let Down is fast becoming one of those songs that hits me as hard as a U2 song! Especially in combination with Exit Music. Something about the quiet, comtemplative building into the soaring melody of "chemical reaction...hysterically useless..." combined with whatever it is about Thom Yorke's voice that I can't get enough of. lol. I am babbling. Anyways, I'm happy.

Yep, just as I was trying to tell you a month ago. Also, I think you should d/l Unison from Bjork's Vespertine and probably Pagan Poetry too while you're at it.

You told me that? (must go reread original thread. lol) btw, where would I find the afore-mentioned songs? I don't have any file-swapping programs and the only place I can d/l stuff is at work.

sula, I tell you whats up there with the Exit/Let Down combo....Climbing Up The Walls/No Suprises..I spent countless hours and hours with the lights off enduring the finale of CULW and then finding a song like No Suprises light relief afterwards..beatifully merged together

glad you are enjoying it..have you got The Bends yet?

Let Down, for me, was the only Radiohead song that ever lent any credence to all those early U2 comparisons.

Sort of a Joshua-Tree-in-an-airport vibe, really.
