I like I Will quite a bit -- I think it's a gorgeous song.

And as someone who doesn't frequent Radiohead message boards or anything, it comes as a surprise to me that Amnesiac is taking such a beating.

And yeah, I couldn't imagine why Kid A would be favored over The Bends. The Bends doesn't have a bad song on it.

I know that many here disagree with this assessment, but I do feel Amnesiac to be simply a collection of Kid A rejects. That being said, it is still an exquisite album.

Songs you can wrap your puny mind around, anyway.

and there, in a nutshell, is the entire appeal of Kid A.

I got ahold of Jonny's Superhet Popcorn Receiver, it's definitely interesting.

If you like the stranger arrangements on Kid A or Amnesiac or Jonny's Bodysong soundtrack at all, you might love this.

I'll send to any who are interested.

Admittedly, I can understand people not liking We Suck Young Blood, but as it's their "ode to Low" track, I obviously like it. A lot.

Again, also can somewhat understand some people not liking glitch electronica type songs like The Gloaming, but for a glitch song it's about as accessible as can be (OMG, lyrics!)

I truthfully do not like Scatterbrain much though, so I'll give everyone that track.

Just so everyone knows, I'm really not upset or arguing on this. Just saying it surprises me, that's all. That's all, Lazarus you dirty %*@#!
Replying to joyful girl here as well...

I think Scatterbrain is a beautiful song.

And I know that the few songs I mentioned have their fans, but I think you will see when this Survivor continues that these songs are not enjoyed by the majority of Radiohead fans as much as the other tracks.

As for HttT, I often find it hard to believe that Sail to the Moon does not have a stronger reputation. For me, it is far and away the strongest track from the album (and possibly one of the band's ten best), yet it is never really mentioned in the same breath as There There or Wolf at the Door.

Lately, I've been listening to In Rainbows with the idea that it's about the sick cat from Myxomatosis. A cat that's now fully recovered, domesticated, and looking for validation.

If you do this, it becomes better than The Bends.

Definitely a great song.

I think my favourite is Where I End and You Begin.

I always thought that was about a rabbit, considering myxomatosis is a disease only rabbits can get.

That's a great question...maybe I have no idea what I am talking about!

I always heard it as a sick cat song. This could change everything.
