I agree with the sentiment that songs from Kid A sound better when listened to as a whole album and songs from Rainbows are better stand alone songs.

Anthem, not very anthemic enough to warrant such a title.

In Limbo should be back in the game...

It'll hit you. I don't know when, but it will. You'll see.
I doubt it.

Don't help Anthem. It's a rip off of Floyd's Narrow Way II anyway!

Kid A is the kind of album you respect greatly. In Rainbows is something you love.

Those who feel differently are immediately suspect, either they're too cool for school or just are devoid of taste.

Bottom line: Kid A=concept, Rainbows=songs.

Opinions, ever heard of them?

I disagree. I don't know why Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, for example, is any more of a 'song' than How To Disappear Completely or Everything In Its Right Place or or Morning Bell. It may have a warmer atmosphere, but it is no more a verse/chorus/verse song than those I mentioned. Same goes for House Of Cards and 15 Step. I mean, Optimistic and Idioteque both more 'song' than HOC or Apreggi. Optimistic and Idioteque both have clear verse/chorus/verse structures. Why is Arpeggi(just as an example) more of a song than those?

I honestly think the brilliance of Kid A as a whole overshadows the great 'songs' it contains - EIIRP, Optimistic, Idioteque.

I don't think it comes to anything being less of a song than the other. Anything is a song. Crank Dat Soulja Boy is a song, albeit a terrible one.

It's how the song can function out of the context of the album that makes it strong or not. It doesn't make it any more or less of a song than the other, it just can function in the world it creates in 4 minutes, and the greater world created in the 40-45 minute album.

Cheers mate, I've got a bunch of JB vouchers from Chrissy, so provided The Bends is at $10 bucks I'll pick it up.
