In Rainbows hasn't stood up against the time. I was a big fan when it first came out, but I just can't listen to it anymore. It sounds so dated.

I deleted it from my ipod.

The standard five seconds should be fine.

Definitely a Sigur Ros influence...Nude, in particular...which also reminds me of the original theme song to Star Trek, for some reason...especially the spacey outro. It's also great to see Edge make an appearance on Bodysnatchers.

Hard to judge yet where it ranks, but I think it's definitely an album that has a whole arsenal of emotion, not just the peaks of paranoia. Maybe their most grown-up album to date...can't wait to see them in concert.
The Edge is still playing the walk on riff

is it possible to listen to an album too much?

I bought Icky Thump yesterday. I like it a lot.

But I'm listening to In Rainbows.

I just can't get over this album Nude has grown on me a lot. Such a beautiful song. There's really not a weak track on this record though.

also some people said Thom's delivery on Bodysnatchers was subpar...personally I love it. He sounds like a real rock 'n roll singer, full of confidence. "I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM TAAAALKIN ABOUT" makes me

I can't wait til the tour...my friend and I tried to get tickets to Radiohead awhile back when they were playing in chicago but i think they were playing some small venue or something...we werent able to get them. but because of the greatness of this album i will get tickets no matter what it takes.

I think it flows better than the actual order, and I think the buildup of the record as a whole is better this way...it starts with the 'I'm alive' theme of Bodysnatchers, quiets down and starts building and building and building until it gets to the masterpieces of Nude, Reckoner, and All I Need, before closing with Videotape, which is all about death. From 'And for anyone else to see/I'm alive' to 'This is my way of saying goodbye/Because I can't do it face to face/I'm talking to you after it's too late/From my videotape'. For me, Faust Arp and House Of Cards, as nice as they are, play the roles that Treefingers and In Limbo played on Kid A...sort of interludes between the big numbers....interludes of a ridiculously high quality, mind you, but interludes nontheless.

1.Bodysnatchers
2.Weird Fishes/Arpeggi
3.15 Step
4.Jigsaw Falling Into Place
5.Faust Arp
6.Nude
7.House Of Cards
8.Reckoner
9.All I Need
10.Videotape

Please, give it a try. With crossfade in ITunes. Seriously. The flow of this running order...it's just
This is better than the original order.

Anyone see the last.fm charts?

15 Steps has 67,000 listeners

And they have 3 million plays in one week

Radiohead owns last.fm

In Rainbows is definitely my favorite RH album after Kid A and OK Computer. I would rank the albums in this order, actually:

1. Kid A
2. OK Computer
3. In Rainbows
4. Amnesiac
5. Hail To The Thief
6. The Bends
7. Pablo Honey

I still can't get all I need out of my mind. That song is hypnotic.
