It's probably their nod to Late '70s Bowie.

Actually, I was going to say it sounds more like early, Peter-Gabriel-era Genesis. Even though Thom has said that they hate Prog Rock, "Treefingers" sounds amazingly like "Silent Sorrow In Empty Boats" off "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway".

I remember being confounded by it upon the first few listens. The only thing that brought me back was How to Disappear Completely, which struck me as agonizingly beautiful from the first time that I heard it. After about five times through the whole album, I came to see it as a work of genius. It is, however, very much a difficult album; in terms of sheer inaccessibility, it is perhaps surpassed only by the Final Cut, as far as albums that I have heard go. Both, however, are extremely rewarding, if one only devotes the attention to them that they deserve.

High And Dry was like Radiohead doing U2 almost, with the falsettos in the chorus and everything! It's funny how far away from U2 they have drifted now.

I remember I bought Pablo Honey when it came out, but was less than impressed and sort of chucked it to the side after a few listens.

Then I remember my friend and I driving in my car. We were talking about one-hit wonder bands and he mentioned he thought Radiohead and "Creep" seemed to have fallen into that category since we hadn't heard anything by them in a couple years. Not even 10 minutes later the radio station KROQ "world premiered" 'My Iron Lung' and we were both BLOWN away and I was laughing at him for his "dated" one-hit wonder proclamation.

As much as I liked The Bends, and especially 'Sulk', I still only listened to a few songs and rarely the entire album all the way through.

A few years later, while on a trip to San Francisco, I was in a record shop around Haight & Ashbury, and I saw a giant OK Computer poster on the wall, and I remember thinking, Oh, I didn't know Radiohead has another album. So I bought it, brought it home and

'No Suprises'.

'No Suprises'. That's the song that did it for me. I had never heard anything quite like it and I was just spellbound. And then I fell in love with the rest of OK Computer. And then I went back and truly discovered The Bends and fell in love with that WHOLE album.

And then there was no looking back. I've been a goner ever since.

(Though, there's still only a handful of tracks off Pablo Honey that I ever listen to. I've still never fallen in love with that album. But the ones that are good 'Blow Out', 'Lurgee', 'Been Thinking About You', 'Stop Whispering' are just great!)

"Just" video is awesome!

But I also really love the "Street Spirit" video.

And "High and Dry" video is very good as well.
