Videotape is going to exit at such an early point? Before the release of In Rainbows, many around here were speaking of Videotape as though it were going to be one of their finest achievements. Certainly the drums cannot make that much of a difference in a song's overall quality.

That's where you're wrong.

Have you heard those live versions?


If we can manage to get rid of Jigsaw before HOC I will be very impressed, and could live with elimination at that point.

Videotape I suppose. I have absolutely no problems with that song being eliminated.

You have no problem with this whole album getting eliminated.

Yeah, I especially like Thom's "In the Basement" performance, although the arrangement is slightly too sparse for my tastes. I think that the drums help the song, if I am honest.

Very true, sir.

Except for Reckoner.

I don't think the basement version works either, but there's a couple live versions Xavi shared with us (one from Toronto, maybe?) that had complex percussion but just built to a much better climax.

Probably not. Reckoner is too divisive and Nude will lose the ballad contest to All I Need.

It will probably be AIN and Arpeggi.

I don't care which wins as long as it's one of All I Need, Reckoner, Nude, and Weird Fishes.

When I'm not in the mood for the whole CD, I start with Nude and finish with HOC, sometimes Reckoner. I usually do that twice in a row.

The rockon smiley and Reckoner don't go together. It is just a bunch of falsetto and words stretched out beyond the limit of comprehensibility. There's such a thing as too much falsetto. Two examples: Chris Martin and Reckoner.

That said, I gave Reckoner another chance today on my stereo system for a change. The better sound quality kinda made me not hate the song. It's not bad... I especially like 1:22 when the keyboard kicks in. But it's still easily my least favorite on the album. Easily! I want to like it, guys.

Reckoner > All I Need


It's science.

I'm gonna stop wondering what the hell you guys see in Reckoner.
