I'm one Videotape away from completing my third run through. Arpeggi and 15 Step are my favorites, I reckon.

I'm still having trouble loving Arpeggi, given it's just so different from what I imagined it could have been. I'm liking it a bit more though.

I keep wishing I might have been allowed to advice ont he production on this album, and even mix it. It could have been so much more.

I feel the same way Lance. There are so many little things I would tweak on this album.

One of the first things I would do is add down is the new up in an 'electioneering' position. An upbeat rocker would do well around song 7 or 8 imo.

Videotape should not have been a closer. That's for sure.

If anything, House of Card or All I Need would have done a much better job. Or "Lift". They ressurect all these old songs for this album (including the bonus disc) but not their best? Shananigans.

Reckoner should be the first single because it's easily the most catchy, radio-friendly song on the record.

Just got to it again. Definitely.

It reminds me of Knives Out, only a lot less annoying.

Interesting that it would remind you of Knives Out...Knives Out was sort of driven by a grove, a subtle momentum....but Reckoner is totally melody all the way through.

And I will say this: If Reckoner's melody doesn't make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, you have no soul. True story.

I don't really hear that much of a difference to be honest. I mean, Reckoner is defintely less reliant on it's rhythm, but the orchestration and mix sounds remarkably similar.

The more I think about it actually, the more this album reminds me of Amnesiac. Except it doesn't have a "Kid A" immediately preceeding it to make it worthwhile.

Oh good. What this thread was missing was some cocky condescension.

Who am I condescending other than Radiohead themselves? It's perfectly fair.

I can't wait to hear what they've done with Down is the New Up. A lot of people seemed not to like it on the tour but I thought it had great potential.

It's probably just the piano but Videotape reminds me of Pyramid Song...

I finally got the album, and I have to say it's fantastic! I love the overall sound and feel of IR, and it's great to hear Radiohead return to their rock roots.

I'm only on my first listen and halfway through, but I'll give a more extended review later.

Return to their rook roots? Are we listening to the same record? The only rock here is Bodysnatchers.
