happy scalpers, y'all!
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Quote from: Thom Yorke
It was fun and quick to do.
first impression: if this took more than an afternoon, it took too long.

I think it's loose, not lazy, Mod.

There are some amazing tracks on here.
maybe a couple tracks that don't really find themselves, but mostly really great stuff... like a sleepy amnesiac.

Does Analyse really start like it's starting in the middle of the song or did I get a bad copy of that song?

I fell asleep listening to it. But I think that's because I was laying down, and really tired. Second listen coming up now.

My first impression is that this is more confirmation that Radiohead hit its peak with Amnesiac. I like it a lot, but it's not on par with HTTT. I know it's a solo album... but still. Disappoingtly unmelodic.

I'm sure I will like it more after a few listenings, like it usually goes... my favorites so far are The Eraser (which I'm loving already), Harrowdown Hill, And It Rained All Night, The Clock.

i was tired too the first time i heard it, but i stayed wide awake. . still goin'.

true enough, it's good though. real good. you're right, the more you hear it the more you'll like it. but i loved it at first. now i'm ten spins through.

glad you mentioned the Clock. i love the hummmmm on that song. and the clicks, blips, beeps, beats, and buzzes. it's a layered album without being too thick.

JB what do you think of Skip Divided?

i think it's the song (or i got the same copy). the beat starts quick and he immediately sings, a self-fulfilling prophecy of endless possibilty//your warning rings across the street//in algebra, in algebra

Really? See, I ignore this forum for so long and I miss JB giving an opinion on Radiohead I didn't know anyone else had. All the Radiohead fans I know (including me) always looked down on Amnesiac. The consensus was the album was the quality of b-side material only. I don't even think Amnesiac is a true album. Whatever the merits are of everything else Radiohead has done, at least all the other albums are sonically whole. Amnesiac has songs at every level and is more like Sgt. Peppers but without the apology concept idea. What's your angle on the album, JB?

see, mine doesn't even have the word "a" and I dont' think it even has the begining of the "s" in "self"... strange.

I really like the first four tracks the most... "Skip Divided" kind of starts the album headed into a less defined direction which is regains during "and it rained all night"
