Nude just came on again...

I wonder how much longer the thread will go on like this? I don't mind, really. Just saying.

Did Johnny use the Ondes anywhere on this album? I haven't heard it distinctly yet? Which surprised the hell out of me.

Apparently he wrote a 9 minute piece on one that is being used in the There Will Be Blood soundtrack.

It's hard to tell...liner notes would help. It is entirely possible that Nude might feature them and they're getting lost in the strings.

I suppose it's possible, though like you said, hard to tell without some fuggin liner notes.

Look at the reviews so far:

Rolling Stone - 4.5 stars
Guardian - 5 stars
Planet Sound - 9/10
Times Online - 4 stars
Virgin Media - 4.5 stars
The Telegraph - Favorable

Damn straight, I say.

Reckoner might be my favorite so far and I didn't think it could be possible (since I was never crazy about the earlier song with that title and because All I Need is on this cd). Or at least I've listened to it the most.

I can hear it pretty clearly on Bodysnatchers but I don't remember anything else. Oh, and Smear (the piece from There Will Be Blood) =

Reckoner is the MOST catchy song on the record. I can't get it out of my head. It is brilliant. It IS the best song on this record. By a fair margin.

How can you fucking review this thing already? For publication? I don't care how many times you've listened to it! It's one thing for us to share our opinions with each other, but this is pretty casual. These guys are writing for actual established magazines and papers. Is this what they do for every album? I can't imagine putting my thoughts out there for actual general public consumption without giving it a few days to reflect.

It's sad, really. They don't get advance copies and now have to rush to say something so it looks like they're on topic.

I'm not saying none of the observations are worthy or the opinions without merit, but jesus, let it sink in a little, huh?

Agreed 100%. Kid A would have been considered a critical flop had writers based their opinions on a day of (hopefully) constant listening. This is ridiculous.

It does appear, however, that In Rainbows will be the Halo 3 of music and be a nice holiday present as a result. Look for discbox sales to shoot up now.

You've heard Smear?

Is it available anywhere?

Lance, am I crazy or did I just see you over in Where the Album Has No Name?

I can't believe you don't like Passengers.

Don't be bitter just because it beat Kid A to the punch by 5 years.

I make an appearance from time to time. I don't want to end up completely caught with my pants down and be like "Oh hey, look, there's a new U2 album on the shelves. I had no idea."

As for Passengers. I don't dislike it. It's grown on me, much like HTTT. But I used to have quite the reputation, back when I posted in EYNIW, for not being too crazy about Passengers (or at least not considering it a U2 album). I do think it's wildly hit-or-miss though. But when it hits, it's a fucking doozey.

And if I were bitter about that, I'd have to be a super-purist and listen to Varese or some shit.
