I think Jigsaw could use a more "plugged-in" feel. This album doesn't have quite enough speed, unfortunately. That's what keeps it below Kid A, I think.

Reckoner sounds amazing.

I'm a little tired of hearing Thom's ambient wailing all the time, but it's not a deal-breaker.

Pitchfork will give this a 9+ easy.

This album was the one that probably could have most benefit from a clean, front-mixed Thom vocal. And it's probably the most blurry his vocals have ever been.

WTF!!??


Videotape (as recorded and reigned in by Radiohead in the studio) = after World War III, in the rubble of a pulverized building, a lone tape recorder struggles with the last of it's battery power to eek out with its one remaining mono speaker the sounds of the once bombastic and euphoric Videotape of live performances.


WTF!!?? Can you say they muted the fuck out of it!

The breakdown in Arpeggi is like a kick in the balls.

I'm listening to it on the radio at work - not loud enough to get a real feel for it, but 'at a distance' it sounds really beautiful.

I think that's the point. It would sound like Fix You if it pushed itself any further.

the vocal flourishes, no mumbling, lush, beautiful guitar, backing vocals/ondes...

not as fast as the live version

but it gets the job done

Definitely yes. I want to hear his voice without a metric ton of echo and blur fogging everything.
