I'm not sure how you can like some of the songs on this album and not like OSC.

I see a lot of similarities in the minimalistic, lush sounds.

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
I agree horrible review

yeah.

Okay now I'm gonna say what shit reminds me of just to be a jerk

Bodysnatchers reminds me so much of the Velvet Underground...though the part where it goes all uplifting (not typical of Radiohead) reminds me of U2. I do get the same feeling from All I Need in that they've somehow tapped into the same sort of energy U2 does, though it doesn't necessarily sound like U2. House of Cards does though. Laid-back U2 ala One Step Closer, The First Time, etc. The falsetto at the end reminds me so much of some U2 song but I can't place it.

Reckoner reminds me of Stadium Arcadium Chili Peppers for some reason... Faust Arp is Beatlesy but that's not new for Radiohead.

overall though I feel like this album has its own sound and its cohesive and I am so happy about it.

also my friend loves Green Lantern. fyi.

But I certainly agree with Morning Bell/Amnesiac and perhaps Pyramid Song and I Might Be Wrong...hints of it, perhaps. But they fully reached it here. I really feel like this is a huge leap for them, because an easy criticism of Radiohead is that their music is too dark/depressing. In Rainbows isn't all sunshine, but you gotta have the light and the rain to make a rainbow right?
Another band who likes to juxtapose musical and lyrical ideas: The Flaming Lips.

While most of the music is upbeat, they present some depressing themes and moral dilemmas in their lyrics, not to a huge degree, but they still do. Take "The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song" for example, about the abuse of political power (probably the US government), and "Bad Days," which can be taken as a song about suicide, but is a light and fun song otherwise.

Am I really the only one that thinks a "sympathy for the devil"/looser/janglier version of 15 step would kick the collective ass of rock and roll?

I hate to say this, and this is coming from someone who actually likes HTDAAB a lot, but there was a write up some year back of the 90's best albums, or best albums of all time in Q Magazine or NME or something, and under The Bends they simply wrote:

"U2 would sell crack to nuns to make music like this."

I can't help but think about that line when reflecting on In Rainbows. While that line seemed like an exaggeration after Pop and Zooropa, now it seems like a sad reality, even if U2's goals have been to unite and perfect the pop style this decade.

The Edge would have to be seriously challenged after hearing this album; In Rainbows isn't cold and distant (sorry Lance) like most of Kid A & Amnesiac, but rather welcoming, and yet it's creative as hell.

Maybe this will have a positive impact on what U2 does next, because I'm having a hard time buying their claim to Best Band in the World right now, even if I'm SLIGHTLY disappointed in Rainbows.

Also, not to be a nag, but...

Old Videotape mp3s? Anyone?

Maybe put up a s end spa ce link instead so others can get it too?

I'm dying to hear these earlier incarnations now.

I have a small orgasm at :20 of All I Need

Not big enough that I have to clean up, but big enough to enjoy it.
