I'm now listening to Greenwood's pieces from the Ether Festival.

God damn they're fantastic. I haven't listened to "Popcorn Superhet Reciever" yet, but "Piano For Children" and "Smear" are truly marvelous.

I really want to pick up his Bodysong soundtrack now.

And Smear makes my anticipation for There Will Be blood grow ever more, if that's possible.

"Smear" from the "There Will Be Blood" soundtrack?

Sounds like an afterschool special for teenage girls.

Gross.

So, what are everyone's favourite lyrics from the album?

Mine are :

"No matter what happens now,
I won't be afraid because
I know today has been
The most perfect day
I've ever seen"

Lemon, this should probably be back in the Top 10 bands thread, but I'll just drop it here. Quite possibly the funniest, most inspired thing I've ever seen on Conan, though you really have to know who he's making fun of:

Oh, haha... That SCTV sketch is particularly clever. Reminds me of that one Simpsons episode where Krusty the clown comes in to do voiceovers for his doll and finishes before they turn the mic on.

Would you like me to send Bodysong to you?

agreed. I didn't think Thom Yorke was capable of actually wooing me, but he sure did when he sang "You are all I need..." its almost like radiohead found...soul?

you know this album actually reminds me of Sky Blue Sky a bit...both contain beautifully written songs and a sense of warmth. which is why it also reminds me of ATYCLB.

Impossible Germany is absolutely sublime, but the ending of All I Need is, as lazarus said, about as good as music gets. Hard for me to say which song is better. I'm a bit biased at the moment since I've listened to this album about 10 times in a row.

"I am all the days that you choose to ignore" is one of my favourite lines of the album, as well as the line BonoManiac quoted from Videotape. I need to pay attention to the lyrics more.

anyone complaining about the 160kbps is retarded. they basically gave it away. someone call the wambulance, i got possibly the best album of the year for free but it was ONLY 160kbps, I only accept my free music in lossless format, o woe is me, pragmatic celestials upon the parapet of discomfit, 10101001010101001000000010100THE RAINDROPSTHERAINDROPSTHE RAINDROPSTHERAINDROPSTHE RAINDROPSTHERAINDROPSTHE RAINDROPSTHERAINDROPSTHE RAINDROPSTHERAINDROPSTHE RAINDROPSTHERAINDROPSTHE RAINDROPSTHERAINDROPS THE RAINDROPSTHERAINDROPS

Just solo piano, if this is what it is:

My favorite lines:

I am a moth
who just wants to share your light
I'm just an insect
trying to get out of the night
I only stick with you
because there are no others
You are all I need

and this disturbing little bit from Faust Arp:

Dead from the neck up
Because I'm stuffed, stuffed, stuffed

My only complaint about All I Need is that it could have been maybe 30-60 seconds longer, especially at the end.

It's like getting to see the Grand Canyon for a few minutes and then getting dragged away.

I couldn't agree more. It ends rather abruptly. You don't crescendo like that and then cut it off. Except they did.

Exactly. Well, maybe not 60 seconds, but 20 -- 30 more would've been perfect!

I can believe people can quote the lyrics already. I've listened to it nearly nonstop and haven't learned any yet.
