Switch Punchup with Sail to the Moon and that's a perfect album for me.

Upon first listen, I really dig it, probably because I stayed away from most of the live tracks because of shit audio quality. Down Is the New Up and All I Need were the only two tracks I kept listening to, and one's a "bonus track," so it's all good in December I guess.

I can't rank this with the other albums, but it goes in front of Pablo Honey by default. Thom's voice really doesn't bother me on this album as opposed to parts of Hail to the Thief and half of Amnesiac. I'm going to try listening to this back-to-back with The Eraser sometime, that might be interesting. This album does suffer from some bits of overproduction, but it isn't too distracting (other than the drums at the end of Videotape.)

Nude, All I Need, Arpeggi, and Jigsaw / Open Pick are the ones that stacked up with the Radiohead discography for me right away.

Nude, All I Need,

I'll say Bodysnatchers, followed by All I Need.
none of the songs sound single worthy

I mean I though videotape...would have been a single....but its as if the band changed it completely so it wont be a single

I just listened to Videotape. How could they have so badly destroyed such a great song?

Shocking.

Hey, Xavi.

I don't want to wade through 46 pages (and God knows how many in the previous threads), do you have links to a couple really great live Videotapes? I have the Basement version on my MySpace page, but I was thinking maybe a couple other great versions from the tour?

Thanks. Again, you rock with your sharing kindness!

I agree, for those who feel this album was overproduced I think you are listening to the wrong band...

Jonny interview


Quote:



Unlike the fans who haven’t removed their headphones since 2 a.m., Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood is able to focus something other than In Rainbows right now: We talked to him this morning for an upcoming story about his experimental orchestral work, Popcorn Superhet Receiver, which will be making its U.S. debut in New York this January. But Greenwood was also kind enough to share some thoughts about his band’s industry-shaking new album. Here’s a sample:
Why did you choose to release the album this way?
Partly just to get it out quickly, so everyone would hear it at the same time, and partly because it was an experiment that felt worth trying, really.
Why the variable pricing?
It’s fun to make people stop for a few seconds and think about what music is worth, and that’s just an interesting question to ask people.
How would you respond to complaints about the sound quality – that 160 isn’t a high enough bitrate?
I don’t know, we talked about it and we just wanted to make it a bit better than iTunes, which it is, so that’s kind of good enough, really. It’s never going to be CD quality, because that’s what CD does.
What goals did you have for the album itself?
I suppose we wanted to get back slightly to Kid A in that we were spending longer experimenting and trying stuff out — it wasn’t so much of a performance-based thing, like Hail to the Thief. Other than that, it’s the usual thing of turning up with these songs and the pressure is, “Don’t fuck it up, don’t record them badly, don’t do bad arrangements of them, and do them justice.” So that’s what we’ve done.
What are your touring plans?
That’s exactly what we finally started talking about. Now that the album’s out, we can get together exactly how and where we’re going to tour.

actually, you might, I personally don't think it sounds much like HTTT, the songs are simpler and more melodic imo...
