here it is.

i'm stuck in the TARDIS
trapped in hyperspace
one minute snake charming
the next in a motorcade

that's probably my favorite b-side right now.

MK1 and MK2 are around a minute long each. MK1 has echoes of Videotape and allows for thom yorke to once again demonstrate that thom yorke is the greatest hummer of all time. MK2 is total jonny greenwood. i looove the percussion and strings on Down is the New Up. the most stripped down track is Last Flowers. it's lovely but easy to see why it wasn't included on the album. and Bangers & Mash is the bodysnatchers of the b-sides.

Go Slowly is one of the most satisfying things i've heard this year. i love how every little sound that builds and then fades is later reprised at some point. it's perfect. kind of like a calmer There There.

I'm disappointed. Only because I set myself up to get another full album of new material and instead all it was were b-sides. My own fault I guess. It makes In Rainbows sound actually better knowing they chose the correct tracklisting.

Last Flowers is beautiful though.

Thanks for uploading that, Hedwig.

Your chance to download Radiohead's In Rainbows is about to end. The band has announced that the InRainbows.com Web site will close Saturday. But you can still plunk down $80 for the box set at Radiohead's online w.a.s.t.e. store, while supplies last.

1. Last Flowers is legendary.   

2. You're all crazy.  Bangers & Mash is phenomenal!  Hardly the Bodysnatchers of CD2.  They almost fall into some 70s Roy Ayers-type funk.  I kept waiting for a horn section to kick in.  The ending tries its best to kill it but it makes it through alright.  Most improved from the 06 tour.

3. Up on the Ladder is Punch-Up's baby brother.  And that's cool with me.

4. Minute Warning is a decent closer.  Like Spielberg regards David Koepp.  Could go head-to-head with Videotape on a good day.

5. Go Slowly is OK but it should really be called Wish You Were There There.

6. Down Is The New Up is the real disappointment here.  I have one or two live versions of it here and I'm probably not going to stop listening to them.  In fact, it needs a little of what Bangers has, which the live versions of Down actually had.  The strings make it sound like a Bond theme.  Which really just makes me want more than ever for Radiohead to do a real Bond theme.

7. I nothing MK1&2. :|

this felt more like hail to the thief left overs than rainbows. i pretty much agree with everything sparrow said, except i think go slowly is great. i didnt like bangers n mash when i heard it live, but i LOVE the recorded version. after hearing the b-sides i can definately say that bodysnatchers and house of cards are still by far the worst of the rainbow recording sesh (imo).

I had heard Radiohead every now and then but never really invested into listening to them.  When In Rainbows became available to download for free I decided to check them out, what a good idea that was.  The more I listen to them, the more I like them.  I've downloaded a few  songs and I'm just wondering what you guys think their best albums are, and if possible where I can download them.

are you serious?

Oh be fair.  Many of us were exactly that when Hail to the Thief came out.

Essbe, I think you'll find your answers in other parts of this thread.  I believe there's a few pages where a bunch of people ranked their favorite albums and discussed their choices.  The short answer, however, would be to get ahold of all of them.  There's not one that I'd consider not worth having.
