Before the album was released, I thought Videotape would be the best song on the album and a great closer. Now I think it's the worst and totally unremarkable. How the hell did they think adding drums was a good idea??? Maybe they felt the piano version sounded a bit too same-y like a demo. But these rolling drums just go on forever and that's what makes it annoying. I wouldn't have minded so much if the drums were used sparsely.

As for how it ranks with the other albums, it's too soon to tell. I still like Hail To The Thief a lot!

15 Step is my new MySpace song.

At least until I find Bodysnatchers, Arpeggi, or Jigsaw.

I'm surprised you all don't like Videotape I think it's absolutely beautiful and I love how it sort of builds up but never reaches a full crescendo. I guess that's most people's beef with it. But I think it's perfect like that. Though the drum sound is a bit weird, I've at least gotten used to it.

ranking songs just for fun
1. All I Need
2. Bodysnatchers
3. Videotape
4. 15 Step
5. Weird Fishes/Arpeggi
6. Reckoner
7. Jigsaw Falling Into Place
8. Nude
9. House of Cards
10. Faust Arp

Have you heard the full piano version? (or the basement version I guess?)

I'm just indifferent about it, it leaves a sour taste in my mouth as the closer, especially after hearing the versions Xavi posted earlier. I wonder how Videotape -> All I Need will sound together... I'll tweak the tracklisting and post it here later.

Because I have nothing else better to do, song rankings after Day 1:

1. All I Need
2, Jigsaw Falling into Place
3, Weird Fishes / Arpeggi
4, 15 Step
5. Nude
6. Bodysnatchers
7. Reckoner
8. Faust Arp
9. House of Cards
10. Videotape

I agree. All I want is to have one thought that doesn't end with "You are all I want ...."

Here's a sample of my brain the last 8 hours.

"Huh, I'm getting hungry - you are all I want"

"I've gotta run to the bank before it closes - you are all I want."

Annoying.

The ending does a little more for me and goes pretty well into 15 Step, so it's an upgrade.
