Yeah, I must have been thinking of the live versions.

Who does the falsetto in the intro? Doesn't sound like Thom...

He really does sound like a woman there. And it's not the reverb.

I agree.

Records like OKC (and Achtung Baby) are practically miracles in an artist's career. It's not even really fair to compare anything else to them.

OKC and Kid A are masterpieces IMO, whereas IR is a great, great record. Hard to imagine I'll ever love anything as much as I love Kid A.

it's too early to really judge if In Rainbows is better than the true classics...but I think IR may end up being a classic too

yikes, if atease is proclaiming in rainbows better than ok computer, im kinda glad i haven't been there in two weeks. though most of the people who post in the main forum are complete sycophants anyway, so it's not surprising.

and thom's vocals on there there are perfect. in fact, everything about that song is perfect. while it's not my absolute favourite radiohead song, if i had to sum the band up with one song (impossible) i would choose there there.

AND ed does awesome background vocals! i wish he were on more studio tracks. actually, ed's about the only thing i like about the recorded version of arpeggi.

I wonder to what extent the comparisons to OK Computer and Kid A are products of the sheer excitement surrounding the release. In Rainbows is a damn strong album, and, I might say, is becoming more so with each listen, but I really do not think that its reputation will remain in the same strata as the other two (or The Bends, for that matter) after the immediate exhilaration has subsided.
In a related note, Reckoner has officially assumed the distinction of best song on the album for me.

I think "prick" would be a more fitting term.

I am underwhelmed at Yorkie's vocal on Bodysnatchers. It starts off amazing, but then just deteriorates into Yorkie's ugly wailing, which is a shame cause the instrumental groove of Bodysnatcheers is so seductive.

Am realy liking this album it is more instant than some other albums wich took me some time to appreciate like Kid A.

Althoght that drum beat in Videotape is terrible very anoying a real let down seemed like it would be a nice album closer.

Am loving Nude and Reckoner
