Me neither. I'm not surprised by this record, per se, but I am blown away by its goodness.

I'm predicting this album to be a major success for the band on all levels. The stars are aligning, and this will likely be the "right place at the right time" record that Radiohead and the music industry at large so badly needs. Radiohead is about to become really popular again.

I have to say so far from a promotional stand-point it has been pure genius... They spent $0 on promoting this album, the media did it all for them.

The Shins were great. This was the second show this year for their hometown crowd, after a long absence. The first show was in a club they used to play in way back when and was heavy on their earlier material, practically ignoring Wincing, but it was clear why--this was a show for the fans who supported them before they got big. That was a really exciting show. Last night was a theatre show and was more oriented towards the newer material. They are a really tight live band and much more rocking than you'd think (as you probably know since you've seen them).

And their light show was very rainbowy (to bring this back to the topic at hand).

Listening to In Rainbows on the late night drive home under the big desert sky was bliss.

I've had this on repeat for so long my ears hurt from having the headphones on.
I love that too

This evening, In Rainbows will get the ultimate test, the "crank it so loud your eardrums disintegrate" test. It made the Bends better, maybe it will do the same for IR.

I think the early version of Reckoner would have destroyed my speakers had I turned it up past about 6.

I've never heard the old Reckoner. I don't think I want to. I only want this Reckoner to be in my mind when I think 'Reckoner'.

You're probably better off. I tend to prefer the new version, but the old one had its merits.

RECKONER PA PA PA
