If there’s one criticism I can give In Rainbows, it’s that the production was very clean and kinda sterile. Even Bodysnatchers sounds a little too “perfect”.
I think the production is great, I just think they stripped those two songs down a little too far. It's a little hard to say that about Go Slowly because the version on the record is really great, but man, the drums on the live version are so good. The studio recording of Down Is The New Up almost sounds like a demo compared to the version they did live though. It sounds very similar to the 2005 version that Thom recorded for From The Basement.

I'll forever feel that way about Ful Stop and Identikit. The former was phenomenal live with the album version being very muted and not as magic, and Identikit still baffles me with the embarrassing singing over the synth solo contrasting the dull tone overall. Would adore good quality soundboard recordings of the original versions played on the King of Limbs tour, the album versions just had the life sucked out of them. Hopefully Cut a Smile makes it into a future album (feels like we'll be due one soon but who knows with Covid) and doesn't suffer the same fate because it's already perfect.

I like both versions of both songs. There's a great quality recording of Identikit 2012 on the Austin City Limits show
