I remember The Eraser being pitched as like Thom just loving around on his laptop and hey here's an album, which really helped its appeal to me. Tomorrow's Modern Boxes felt a lot weaker to me, I think just because it's more just like a sonic landscape, less like a bunch of individually cohesive songs.

Also every now and again I remember Atoms for Peace. I would be so happy if they just randomly dropped another album. Such a great, weird little side project.

I like TMB better than The Eraser tbh, itís just such a mood piece. Anima blows them both out of the water though.

The anima movie was cool but the music was definitely the least interesting part for me personally. The eraser is good but atoms for peace and tomorrowís modern boxes were incredibly disappointing.

Anima has some cool music, Dawn Chorus is especially substantial. I tend to agree with the other stuff being underwhelming but this is a cool song/video

I love TMB but much more side A than B. I could listen to side A forever. I find "the mother lode" to be really relaxing.

also really relaxing imo, "reverse running" on amok

So Kid A came out 20 years ago today/tomorrow (depending on where you are) so I started digging for videos of tracks, and came across a brass rendition of "Motion Picture Soundtrack" played at a memorial service

Motion Picture Soundtrack always seemed like it would work well for something like that. The harp at the end is so beautifully haunting.

I didn't get in on the super fancy OKNOTOK special edition but I do have the one with blue vinyl.

Meanwhile, my girlfriend got me the A Moon Shaped Pool special edition for my birthday this year and I love it and wish I knew what snippet my tape band was.

I'd jump on a Kid A one.

The kid a special edition that was released in 2000 was just awkwardly sized so it probably wonít fit in your cd shelf (a problem they repeated with httt kinda and in rainbows special ed. definitely) and it has different artwork thatís not any better than the regular issue, just different. I donít really like it as much tbh.

The normal first cd pressing had a glossy black tray with a really cool comic book style booklet hidden underneath with translucent paper and fun pictures.

Amnesiac special edition was great though.

I grabbed some high quality flacs of In Rainbows to replace whatever quality MP3s I downloaded in 2007 and listened to the whole thing on some really good headphones. Heard a synth part on Videotape for the first time after hundreds (thousands?) of listens. Pretty neat

I really do wonder why they didn't stick with the far better version of Videotape that they did live. Maybe it's because they wanted to play up the illusion that's going on in the song?

As the story goes, the live version is actually what they recorded. Apparently Thom and Nigel were pulling out their hair in the studio because the track just wasnít gelling like they wanted, and an annoyed Jonny kicked them out until he had a crack at the mix. He stripped it down, chopped up Philís drum track, and thatís the version that ended up on the album.

It sounds like they did try to record Videotape the way it was done live but nobody was happy with it

Thom Yorke posted:

We were looking for something that had a real effect on us, an emotional impact, and that happened when we were doing Videotape and I was semi kicked out of the studio for being a negative influence. Stanley and I came back a bit worse for wear at about 11 in the evening and Jonny and Nigel had done this stuff to it that reduced us both to tears. It completely blew my mind. Theyíd stripped all the nonsense away that Iíd been piling onto it, and what was left was this quite pure sentiment.

Kid A will officially be 21 and therefore no longer A Kid.

I remember seeing some comments that seemed like he was being purposefully evasive in the Radiohead way but maybe Iím just misremembering. Canít imagine they wonít do some sort of deluxe reissue at some point even if itís not this year, itís kind of their most important record, right?

I wouldnít be shocked if they just roll a Kid A reissue into an Amnesiac anniversary and just go all out. I figure if they go all out with both thereís a better chance of folks dropping $250-300 on a combined reissue vinyl set that includes both with art books or whatever rather than $150 on Kid A (certainly a lot of interest) and $150 on Amnesiac (probably less outside of freaks like me).

Yeah, Kid A is great, but I guess I never understood why itís almost fetishized. Amnesiac (plus b-sides), IR, and TKOL are all better albums for me.

It's because it defied expectations and the stir that caused at the time it was released.

Kid A is one of the all-time greatest feats of track sequencing on an album. I'm not saying Amnesiac is poorly sequenced or anything, but Kid A is peak.
