I've usually found that my favorite music took some time to grasp. So I'll hope Mr Brau's early assessment means this has a lot of depth and will need a lot of listens.


But I'm glad most seem to be liking it already.

When I first heard Bodysnatchers this morning I thought "Nice to hear them return to their rock roots!"

1st half is perfect.

Open Pick sounded like something off The Eraser though, that's not a bad thing.

Nude and All I Need are probably my favorite ballads that they've ever done.

Just finished my first proper listen (meaning with good headphones) and I am indeed blown away. I did not listen to the previous versions, so everything was a surprise.

The sequence Nude > Weird Fishes/Arpeggi > All I Need is

The best 15 minutes of music in recent years...

I'm still listening to my shuffle play list: I hope they play Fake Plastic Trees as I walk into heaven...

Sorry, I've been in and out of this thread earlier when you guys were talking leading up to the release, which song is Open Pick? 15 Step?

I'm sorry, I meant 15 Step. I always confuse those two.

Open Pick = Jigsaw Falling into Place.

Ipod shuffle update: Paranoid Android > Bodysnatchers!

We have a winner.

You know, after hearing Rainbows twice last night, I did a scan through a handful of songs on HTTT, and the album is a lot less cluttered. They were trying something different with each song, instead of trying to cram 15 diferent things into each one like they have with Rainbows. I hate to second guess bands that have proven themselves time and time again, but I can't shake the feeling this one was overcooked.

Lance, you're saying it's bad production not over production, and while that's slightly true as Radiohead are always heavily produced, it's still overproduction that's the problem. I think too many things were added to hold up the songs, mostly when they weren't needed, and I specifically it's still All I Need, House of Cards, and Videotape that are suffering to me the most. The first two songs are amazing enough to overcome the problem, but the last one really reeks of "could've been", and I haven't even heard the old versions. It's probably the least successful closing song since...well, whatever the hell is the last song on Pablo Honey, I never listen to that album so I have no idea what song it is.

Lance, have you come to a decision yet on HTTT vs Rainbows yet? I think I'll probably putting this on more often, but that's because it's shorter. HTTT is a greater accomplishment overall, and I stand by what I said before--it's 10 best tracks stack up STRONGLY against Rainbows.

What I chose:

1. 2+2=5
2. Sit Down, Stand Up
3. Backdrifts
4. Go to Sleep
5. Where I End and You Begin
6. There There
7. Punchup at a Wedding
8. Myxamatosis
9. Scatterbrain
10. Wolf at the Door

Also, someone was saying a few pages ago that HTTT sounded too much like Kid A/Amnesiac. I don't agree with that at all; it's much more organic than its predecessors. If anything, Rainbows sounds more like it could have come out between Amnesiac and HTTT, considering all the electronic detailing.
