I have no flipping idea what you're talking about.

The new one seems to be more atmospheric

There's a really good new album out from Rostam, formerly of Vampire Weekend. If you liked some of the more quirky and catchy instrumentation from VW but weren't keen on the inane lyrics about boat shoes and the Hamptons, this album could be for you.

It's just a fucking gorgeous track. Criminally underrated.

Though my favourite is probably, by a narrow margin, Sorrow. I will never understand how such a brilliant song came out of the otherwise almost consistently mediocre AMLOR sessions.

I am meaning to check this out. Kept meaning to listen to the record he did with Hamilton Leithauser, that got a lot of good reviews.

It's one of the biggest gut-punches I have ever heard in all my time listening to music. You know the story behind why it appeared on AMSP after all this time, right, tourist?

True Love Waits in its final form is the saddest song Radiohead have ever committed to tape, and for band with a cavalcade of sad songs, that's fucking saying something. I don't understand how this version could bum you out; even if you yearn for the I Might Be Wrong version, it just can't exist as that, because of what happened. And it's so fucking powerful because of it.
I do not know why they released it when they did. You allude to something specific but I googled it and didn't find anything. I just know that they worked on it for multiple albums but never got it to where they liked it.

What I don't like about the studio version is the music and how incredibly slow it became. Also the music, for me, is very offputting. I especially do not like that low ticking shuffling loop that goes through the song. The chord changes feel awkwardly placed and the tinkling piano at times feels very arhythmic.

I guess since I was so incredibly used to the live version since it was one of my favorite Radiohead songs, the studio version just felt like something totally different - and it is. One version is very straightforward. The other version is very glitchy. I guess I just like straightforward more. (For the record, I also like the live version of Like Spinning Plates much more than the studio version, but I appreciated how they created that song in the studio.)

Well obviously as you know the song has been kicking around for ages. But a year before AMSP’s release Thom and his wife broke up; and then in the writing/recording process for the album she passed away (cancer). And so the song finally found its home. The live version is far too upbeat for the subject matter. I find it beautifully powerful, this song that was so well-loved for such a long time, took on a whole new meaning when his wife died. Heartbreaking.

I agree about Like Spinning Plates, the live version is far superior.

Nah, she died well after the release of the album. But your point still stands and I agree with you on the added emotional weight of the song/album in light of the circumstances. Just wanted to correct you on the details.

Ahhh I knew I'd screwed something up. I got it confused. It was the fact that the song took on heaps more weight after she died, when it was already super sad because of the breakup.

I didn't mean to take you up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back to you one of these days
I said, I didn't mean to take you up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back to you one of these days
And if I don't meet you no more in this world
Then I'll, I'll meet you in the next one
And don't be late, don't be late

Lord knows I'm a voodoo child

how on earth are you getting "rapey" out of that?

That's Voodoo Child (Slight Return). I think IWB is referring to this verse in Voodoo Chile:

"Well, I make love to you,
And lord knows you'll feel no pain
Say, I make love to you in your sleep,
And lord knows you felt no pain"
