There is a good crescendo and then instead of dragging it on and on (like U2 sometimes tends to do), they cut it off. I didn't mind so much. I don't know. Maybe I'll change my mind if I listen to the song a few more times and get even more obsessed with it.

The album itself could and should have been longer though. Maybe not as long as Hail but at least more than 42 min.
I know, I'm beating a dead horse but at least it's not the Videotape dead horse. There's a middle road between dragging it out and letting it take its course to its natural conclusion and I don't think they did that. It just needs maybe 20 seconds more. I think the ending to "How to Disappear Completely" was perfect--not too much, just right, absolutely satisfying, for example.

Btw, I was thinking about this last night. Is it just me or is there a Massive Attack influence on All I Need? I'm thinking something from Mezzanine.

Half of it does. It gets awesome once it builds up, but I don't care for Thom's vocals on that one. They're pretty weak and hold the song back. Had it been recorded for IR, I probably wouldn't have any reason to complain.

I sort of agree, but I think the part before the build up should be extended, not the ending itself. There's these couple of bars that work as a bridge between the two parts, but it's too short and it ends up being a tad jarring.

And, for the record, I think IR is the perfect length. It's addicting.

And where the fuck is your protractor?

Ok. It was a busy week and I finally had the time to just sit and listen this morning.

I say Kid A and IR are tied. Bends is back a little further.

Bends is highly underrated (and Kid A overrated) on atease though, so that poll doesn't represent the populous very well.
