but when will LIFT get a damn official release? the newer version preferably.


I prefer the older one. What they need to release is "Follow Me Around". Sheesh.
At wave level, everything exists as a contradiction. Everything is existing in more than one stage/place at any given moment. Everything must move/vibrate and constantly change to exist. Everything, including buildings, mountains, oceans and thoughts.

....as of now, my favorites would be = A Punch Up At A Wedding and Wolf At The Door....


A Wolf At The Door just might be the best thing HTTT's got going.  At this point though, (I've heard it about 3 times), I think A Punchup is one of the two weakest tracks, the other being Backdrifts.

A.  Both are a bit too long and drift a little.

B.  Both seem like rehashes of older, better Radiohead material, Backdrifts especially.

But then, HTTT doesn't display a ton of innovation, at least not compared to OKC, Kid A, and Amnesiac.

Godardian:  Hear this album.  I think I remember you saying you only really enjoyed OK Computer; if so, this is the 2nd Radiohead album you should own.

The whole first half (tracks 1-8 ) is so, so political.  I like the fact that Thom was able to move on from his dark self-exploratory phase, his inquiries into POV and authorship found on Kid A and Amnesiac (although those fascinate me—next time you listen to Amnesiac, concentrate on pronouns).  HTTT is far more topical than the last two albums, but in a heady, dark, oblique way.  HTTT, more like OKC  than any other Radiohead album, is a document very much of the proletariat viewpoint concerning the USA and Britain's relationship with the world and vice versa.

Where Thom got "This is our shiny pop rock album," I'll never know.

I'm so tired of Thom Yorke. I red a interview the other day, and everything he said was depressing crap. He sounded like a really confused man.

HTTT does get better with every listen, I don't think one listen on any radiohead album is fair, they are just too much and they need more listens for it all to sink in.

I really like Myxomatosis, 2+2=5 and A Wolf at the Door.  This album has already moved up to atleast #3 for my favorite Radiohead albums (after OKC and Bends, just ahead of KID A)

Right now I am giving one of my roommates album by album, making him listen to them.

Genius, what the hell does any of that mean?

Hipsters wanted the Iraq War to be like Vietnam because they "need something to rebel against."  Yeah, that's awesome, Genius.

Genius, not that even a man of your intellect would know such a thing, but I supported the War in Iraq.....I was about 80/20 for/against the whole time.

Of all the people who's day was ruined by the war, my day was ruined least.

Genius, why are you so hostile to "hipsters"? I find myself wondering....
