I've had the fortune of seeing AFP live and it was loving great. A lot smaller of a venue and far more energy than at a Radiohead show, probably as a result of Flea being on stage.

I didnt care for TKOL for a long time, it reminded me a lot of Stars of the Lid but worse. Seeing it performed live however gave it some heart it was lacking and showed that especially Bloom is great... it's still not in the discussion for their best album though.

TKOL is just like Amnesiac in that every single track that was played in a live form manages to be better than the studio version, except that Amnesiac is the far, far better studio album.

A MOON SHAPED POOL
Special Edition
SPECIAL EDITION
60.00
Price includes shipping (oh thanks)

-----------

Case bound album, inspired by the albums for 78rpm shellac records in the library of La Fabrique, France
32 pages of artwork
The 11 track album on two heavyweight 12" vinyl records
Two compact discs: one with the album and one with two extra tracks
Recording tape belly band applied *
320kbit MP3 or 16-bit WAV of the 11 track album available to download immediately
* This is a piece of a Radiohead inch master tape from an actual recording session.
The tape degrades over time and becomes unplayable. We thought rather than it ending up as landfill we would cut it up and make it useful as a part of the special edition. A new life for some obsolete technology...
Each loop contains about of a second of audio - which could be from any era in the band's recording past going back to Kid A. You may have silence, you may have coloured leader tape, you may have a chorus... It's a crapshoot.

We have copies. Don't worry.

Digital file sizes:
320kbit MP3 120MB
16-bit WAV 515MB

uhhh link?

Yeah. To think this you must not have earballs installed. You'd have to go to Pablo Honey for a Radiohead album that sounds less like this.

It sounds like Amnesiac in a number of ways

HTTT is decent but their worst of the post 2000s I think. Though those songs your mentioned are probably the worst in the record. Bizarre choices. That's on you though.

TKOL is their worst post-2000 (and honestly, worst outright) for me because it's a "good" album in that the songs were much better represented live (similar to how Amnesiac songs are all better live) except the studio versions lacked the depth and energy that the live performances bring. That said, AMSP owns and is Album of the Year material except for the fact that Blackstar exists. Long term I don't know where it'll sit in my personal rankings, but if it isn't their most cohesive album outright, it's really loving close to being it.

Actually I do this just about every time for some reason. I don't know if it's because of

I tend to skip the first two tracks because I listened to them roughly a million times in the week before the album came out

but in a way I think the album is somehow even better when you get rid of the first two tracks even though those tracks themselves are good.

AMSP is much better than TKOL, but TKOL's live renditions are great, much like how the already great Amnesiac studio tracks are even better when performed live.
