I was in turn attempting to mess with you, but, bottom line, you're not to be messed with. Lesson learned.

BTW, anybody else think that All I Need is kind of U2-ish? Not the music so much but in the lyrics and vocal melody - both seem very Bono to me, I could erase Thom's voice in my head and plop Bono straight in and it fits perfectly. They seem to have one song like that every album...well OK, you might be hard-pressed to find it in Kid A and Amnesiac, but most others.

That's wise of you: I trained with the best.

Damn fucking right.

In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power... Green Lantern's light

I will say this, I think that One Step Closer would fit well into this album.

also is this a shitty review or what

http://www.rollingstone.com/news/sto...c_news_rssfeed

Quote:
These wily boys may have a secret album-title exchange program with Kelly Clarkson, but everything else about In Rainbows is typically hard-rocking Radiohead. Like every other Radiohead album except Kid A — still their most famous album, but they only made it once — In Rainbows has uptempo guitar songs and moody acoustic ballads, full of headphone-tweaking sound effects. All of it rocks; none of it sounds like any other band on earth; it delivers an emotional punch that proves all other rock stars owe us an apology.

In a brilliant move, Radiohead released In Rainbows via optional-pay download; I paid $5.27, in honor of my mom's birthday. Almost all the songs are already familiar to fans from live versions, but here they become expansive new creations. "Arpeggi" and "Bodysnatchers" ride on white-heat rhythm-guitar overdrive, while "House of Cards" is a fragile lovers-rock ballad closely resembling Dusty Springfield's (and the Byrds') "Going Back." "All I Need" has erotic pleading ("I'm an animal trapped in your hot car"), sad chimes in the "No Surprises" mode, and an ominoso synth-piano rumble.

On 2003's Hail to the Thief, Yorke's vocals were all punk rage, but here his voice has an R&B lilt that suits the songs' romantic directness. The end of "Videotape" is the only time the band dips back into dated glitch-blip electronics. Otherwise, the music is full of vividly collaborative sonic touches, from the Gary Numan synth-nightmare drones of "All I Need" and "House of Cards" to drummer Phil Selway's surprisingly deft way with his brushes and woodblocks. No wasted moments, no weak tracks: just primo Radiohead. Hell, I'm going back and tipping them another quarter just for the finger-cymbal solo on "Reckoner."
Besides Bodysnatchers and perhaps 15 Step I would not describe this as "rocks". Hard-rocking? Is that sarcasm or are we just comparing Radiohead to the soundtrack of a coma [note: this joke stolen from Maddox] to reach such a description?

also is Kid A really their most famous? I'd argue for OK Computer... and how does Videotape = glitches and electronics? Are they confused with 15 Step?

I mean I agree with the overall sentiment of the review (that the album is damn good) but their descriptions are way off
