My favorites are Backdrifts and Go To Sleep

Least favorite:  The Gloaming.  I know a lot of you think highly of the song, but I don't get it.  It sounds so damn mediocre especially compared to the rest of the album.

I definitely agree about Backdrifts and Go To Sleep. I'd add Drunken Punch Up to that list as well.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

I've heard Creep a load of times, but it's still great.

What also rocks is Air Bag, the classic Karma Police, Thinking About You...Talk Show Host...and a bunch of titles that don't come to mind...

Great band, though!

Quote from: Mesh
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.


Two Of The Best Tracks On The Album!
Keep listening to them

So, uh...."A Wolf at the Door" sure is cool, huh? Let's talk about Radiohead....guys.


Just might be my favorite on the album.  I love it when Thom's lyrics get all manic and frantic like that.

Yeah, I noted it as sort of sounding like Lou Reed on speed. It's a fast paced speak-sing.

Radiohead have announced their North American tour. Scroll down to the month of August. I'll be there in Montreal  8)
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.

I believe more dates will be announced shortly. I originaly heard that they were touring the U.S. until early October. Surely that will be the case, because that's a really short tour otherwise.

I have a question:

What is the word, on the 'Hail to the Thief'-cover, placed in the lower right corner?

1: Beef
2: Delicious
3: Security
