Other than The Tourist closing OK Computer, definitely yeah.

Fitter Happier just popped up on iTunes, what a chilling song. Who knew Stephen Hawking could sing?

Life In A Glasshouse couldn't be the best closer. It's a good song and everything out of context, but it just kind of sounds tossed in there within Amnesiac itself. Tourist and Street Spirit are superior.

BTW, people overlook Blow Out. That's clearly one of the standouts on Pablo Honey, and a good closer.

How is it out of context? The subject of domestic strife relates right to Morning Bell/Amnesiac, and the final lines "I'd like to sit around and chew the fat/only, only/there's someone listening in." implicates the audience and closes the album on a very meta note.

I hear you. I'm actually like that, too.

I've grown since then.

Agreed. It may be too soon to declare All I Need my new favorite Radiohead song but it is certainly the favorite of the moment. I'm scared I'll burn out on it. But Pyramid is high on the favorites list as well.

Life in a Glass House

You're grasping for straws a bit, IMO. For one thing, Morning Bell is a Kid A song. That you're trying to relate Glasshouse to an alternate version of an old song kind of says it all about Amnesiac. Besides, I wasn't referring to the lyrics, I was referring to the awful Like Spinning Plates--->LIAGH segue.

There have been some great alternate track listings for Amnesiac on the web, and I think LIAGH deserves a shot on the record, but it needs something else next to it.

I knew I was completely obsessed with Radiohead when I realized I thought Like Spinning Plates was beautiful and that that was probably weird.

Sometimes I think that piano version should've been on the album! Then again, the backwards looping album version is amazing!
