Well I'll take acoustic drums over machine anyday, but I do agree with you about this album, the live drumming sounds horrible, it's not only the mix, it's just weak at times... That's a big problem I have with this album.

But overall, it's growing on me, I'm burning a copy for my car, so I'll hold off on a final review until I hear it in there...

Faust Arp lyrics

Quote:
One two three four

Wakey wakey
rise and shine
it's on again, off again, on again
watch me fall
like dominos
in pretty patterns
Fingers in the blackbird pie
im tingling, tingling, tingling
it's what you feel now
what you ought to, what you ought to
reasonable and sensible
dead from the neck up
because im stuck, stuck, stuck
we thought you had it in [you]
but no, no, no
for no real reason

Squeeze the tubes and empty bottles
take a bow, take a bow, take a bow
it's what you feel now
what you ought to
what you ought to
an elephant thats in the room is
tumbling, tumbling, tumbling,
in duplicate and duplicate
plastic bags and
duplicate and triplicate
dead from the neck up
I guess I'm stuck, stuck, stuck
we thought you had it in you
but no, no, no
exactly where do you get off
Is enough, is enough, is enough
I love you but enough is enough, enough
a last stop
There's no real reason

you've got a head full of feathers
you got melted to butter

lol, i was also thinking of bad in terms of live v. studio versions. the version on unforgettable fire is great, but the live version on wide awake in america is kinda THE version for me.

mind telling what you think is wrong with Arpeggi?

I don't like the orchestration or the mix of arpeggi. I don't like the way the guitars sound in the mix, and Thom's vocals need to come forward more. This song needed what they did with House of Cards. And I hate the break down after the Weird Fishes section.

It's a different situation now though. In a live setting, drums only need to be really fucking loud, and that's it. The tambre of them here is horrible. Especially the snare and toms.

I did discover the chimes though this listen-through, so that makes me happy.

Weird Fishes/Arpeggi is probably my least favorite song on the album. Its either that or jigsaw.

The song just doesn't do anything for me.

i catch your meaning, though im pretty sure they previewed the majority of the kid a/amnesiac stuff in some of their summer 2000 shows (not sure if the studio versions were recorded yet). how to disappear completely was played live on the ok computer tour, and some okc songs (paranoid android, let down, airbag(?)) were previewed on the bends tour.

i think it's cool that they like to work out the new stuff in front of an audience and how the songs evolve. that being said, i would like to experience a new radiohead album "fresh" without any clue of what to expect.
