yeah i picked up the album yesterday. the sleeve in roadmap style is weird and doesn't fit in my cd rack. but i knew that when i decided on purchasing that one and not the normal cd. it feels good though when you hold it in your hand. a different experience than any ordinary jewel case. that's ok with this record, it suits the music.
and yes, ultimately its all about the music and you all know that. what great sounds to finally hear it. i kept myself a virgin with this record, didnt want to spoil it with crappy mp3 sound. i must say that the longer the internet and mp3 exist, the more i value the sound of cd audio quality. with a lot of music it doesnt matter though, but with this record it does. im happy now. after a couple of listens i must say that my favorites would be sail to the moon and we suck young blood. but that will change definitely. on first listen i thought the gloaming wasnt much. but now i rank it 4th i think.

only a couple of more days to go. I'm dying already. I'm going to have a Dyonissius (sp?) style listening party on Tuesday. Good wine, good food, good friends, good 420, and of course the lads from Oxford.

I just bought mine from Columbia House when I was buying my Johnny Cash boxed set.


I can wait a few more days.

I applaud your euphemism.

Mofo, the concert was live from New York City... and I think it was simul-cast on MTV2. Was it live on TV, or are they going to play it at a later date? My Canadianess leaves me impotent to American programming.

From what you guys have heard of the album so far, how do you compare (I don't want to say rate it) HTTT to OK Computer and the Bends? I haven't heard much of the mastered versions... I want to be a virgin for Tuesday

There was an article in the Calgary Herald about that today... the "state" of Radiohead, and how they are always limited by comparisons to OK Computer. That's why I brought it up.

Cujo, the band themselves have been calling the album "Ok Computer Part II", so they apparently think it's in the same vein.

I personally think it's kind of a mix between everything they did in the '90's and their last 2 albums.

yeah, exactly. i would say it sounds a bit more like amnesiac than ok computer though. i say amnesiac because that's a bit more of a mellow record than kid a, just like this one. all beautiful sounds and a little less bleeps this time.

Kid A is better than Ok Computer by 2 or 3 hairs

Kid A

That's my favorite of their work... doesn't necessarily make it the best though.

Maybe I'd agree with the newfie... all depending on the type of hair of which Basstrap is referring...

...and so I bought Hail To The Thief. It was in two editions, special (limited edition) and the regular one, and I was unfortunately fifty cents short of getting the limited edition. Damn you, HMV for pricing it at 22.95 and not 21.95.

Also got a rather cheap looking T-shirt with it. Orange RADIOHEAD HAIL TO THE THIEF on a navy blue background.
